The 2019 Maserati Levante has made its New Zealand debut - available from $139,990 plus delivery.
The 2019 Maserati Levante takes Ferrari power into a whole new sector of the market with the launch of the 350 hp Levante which enters the New Zealand market under the existing Levante S and Turbo Diesel models with a recommended retail price of $139,990 plus dealer costs and delivery.
Making its New Zealand debut in the 2019 Maserati Levante, the Maserati designed, Ferrari produced 350hp/257kW twin turbo V6 is a version of the engine that powers the range-topping Maserati Levante S.
With 500Nm of torque spread across 1,750 - 4,750rpm, the 350 hp/257kW Levante offers an outstanding driving experience, accelerating to 100kph in six seconds and on to a top speed of 251kph.
In the best Maserati tradition, the engine’s exhaust system is controlled by pneumatic valves to maintain the rich aural signature of the brand. In the default driving mode, the bypass valves are closed for a comfortable and discreet engine sound.
In sports mode, the exhaust valves open, providing the shortest possible exit route for the exhaust gases. This provides the Levante with its maximum engine performance and the unique Maserati soundtrack.
The latest version of the Levante has the same sophisticated Q4 intelligent all-wheel-drive with rear limited-slip differential and advanced suspension that includes adjustable air springs and skyhook shock absorbers. It offers sports car like handling biased towards the rear, until the going gets tough when the four-wheel drive system comes into action enabling the Levante to traverse conditions previously unheard of for an Italian sports car.
From its 19-inch alloys to its powered rear door, the new Levante is stylishly well equipped and maintains Maserati’s legendary handcrafted interiors and exclusivity.
The interior is richly leather lined and hand stitched, from the seats to the steering wheel, while the front seats are heated and boast 12 way electrical operation with memories and the dashboard is finished in piano black trim, which surrounds the latest in telematics systems, the Maserati MTC+ which has SatNav and digital radio as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
It has cruise control, blind spot alert, rear camera with a dynamic grid guide and parking sensors front and rear. Keyless operation of the doors is standard, along with auto-dipping mirrors and dual-zone climate control ventilation.
“The newest addition to Maserati Levante range is endowed with everything expected of a Maserati with a level of accessibility never before achieved in a Maserati,” says Glen Sealey, the chief operating officer of Maserati Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
“It has the Ferrari-powered performance, the on and off-road ability, the exclusive and unique trim and materials that can only come from Maserati and yet it is available at price point that brings Maserati into a whole new area of the market.”
