If you’re in the car making game these days, you can’t not build an SUV. Whoever you are. We live in times when Porsche and Bentley have SUVs, while the likes of Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce are likely to in the near future. The latest luxury brand to jump on the bandwagon is Maserati with the Levante, and thanks to a leak ahead of a Geneva reveal via Autoweek.nl, we’re able to get an early look at the car.
Details are limited at this stage, but the series of images does include a website screenshot showing three models: the 350, the 430 and the diesel. The 350 and 430 are both powered by turbocharged 3.0-litre V6s, with 0-62mph times of 6.3 and 5.2 seconds respectively, and top speeds of 151 and 164mph.
The diesel model features a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6, which will get the car from 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds and allow for a top speed of 143mph.
It’s not currently known if the SUV will get the 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine found in the Quattroporte, but it wouldn’t surprise us if the V8 makes an appearance.
We’ll bring you all the details and images when they arrive, but for now, what do you think of Maserati’s new SUV?
