The Maserati Levante S Places More Emphasis on an Ultra Luxurious Experience
The Maserati Levante S has now rolled into KL. Two models, the GranLusso and GranSport introduce new features with more emphasis on ultra luxury.
Hot off its world premiere at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Maserati Levante S has now rolled into KL. Two models, the GranLusso and GranSport were introduced during a launch event held at Desa Park City, Kuala Lumpur.
Fans will be treated to a new range of hi-tech features, including electric power steering and the addition of new active functions that enables drivers to navigate all-terrain adventures with greater ease.
The V6 engine’s specific torque of 194 Nm per litre is the best in the luxury SUV class, as is its specific power (144hp/l). The Levante S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds and has a top speed of 264 km/h. Its 430 hp engine is on par with its competitors in terms of fuel consumption, with 10.9 l/100 km on the NEDC test cycle, and CO2 emissions (253 g/km).
The new evolution of the marque’s first SUV has been engineered to excite with the Maserati twin-turbo V6 engine featuring the latest Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) technology at its core. The engine was designed by Maserati Powertrain, in conjunction with the Ferrari Powertrain development team and is both powerful and eco-friendly, thanks to the Auto Start-Stop function.
Emphasis on extravagance and luxury is apparent in the GranLusso trim. Standard 12-way power comfort seats, a Harman Kardon Sound System, power-adjustable steering wheel, illuminated door sills, parking sensors, navigation system and new Soft Close Doors are included. Externally, it is recognisable by the metallic-finish front skid plates and roof rails, GranLusso emblems on the front wings, body-colour side skirts, black-painted brake calipers and 19” Zefiro alloy wheels. Inside the cabin, owners can choose between Ermenegildo Zegna silk, or full premium Italian leather upholstery, with a Radica open-pore wood trim and leather steering wheel.
The Levante S GranSport features a Piano Black front grille, skid plates and roof rails. GranSport badges are on the front wings, body-colour side skirts, blue inserts on all Trident and Saetta logos, red brake calipers and 20” Nereo wheels. The Sport 12-way power leather seats and power-adjustable Sport steering wheel combine with a carbon trim to create an exciting, sporty interior in the GranSport.
