Maserati Levante SUV
While speaking about the upcoming Levante with an Australian publication, local importer ATECO revealed that the Maserati SUV won’t rival low-end Porsche Cayenne models, and will instead target the most luxurious and expensive end of this growing market.
“The Levante will remain an exclusive vehicle,” stated Maserati’s local spokesperson. “The bulk of Cayenne sales come from lower models that we won’t be competing with, and have no great desire to compete with.”.
While certain countries like Australia will only receive higher spec Levante models, even the lower end variants are likely to be priced above comparative low-end Porsche Cayennes. In the range topping spec and possibly fitted with the same twin-turbocharged V8 engine delivering over 510bhp from the Quattroporte, the Maserati Levante will rival the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
In the near future Maserati will have a a new sports car to rival the Jaguar F-Type, and inspired by the Alfieri Concept likely to launch in the new few year, the future is looking very bright for Maserati indeed.
