Maserati Levante Previewed in Malaysia – To be Priced Just Under RM800k
Maserati’s first SUV made a grand entrance into South East Asia today when Naza Italia, the official importer and distributor for Maserati in Malaysia, revealed the eagerly awaited Levante in a media preview event at Naza Tower in KL.
The Levante’s distinctively Italian styling is enhanced by iconic Maserati design traits. The trademark radiator grille with slim, tapered headlights dominate the car’s bold front. In signature Maserati fashion, the Levante sports a sleek silhouette made up of elegantly flowing lines and has the streamlined shape typical of high-performance sports cars. A standout feature (one seen in other models in the brand’s product line-up) is the frameless door windows. With a tailored and exceptionally spacious cabin, the Levante exudes sophistication and truly is the epitome of comfort.
The car was previewed in its left-hand drive form, but will be sold in its right-hand drive guise which might only come with a 3-litre V6 diesel offering. This 275hp engine unit is capable of a sprint to 100km/h in 6.9 seconds and a top speed of 230km/h while still returning about 7.2 litre/100km. With an 8-speed automatic from ZF, the Levante is set to be the ultimate SUV for those who appreciate a spirited drive.
Naza Italia is already accepting bookings for the car and invites the public to head over to Naza Italia’s showroom in Petaling Jaya, where its sales team can provide them with more details of Maserati’s newest offering. The estimate selling price is somewhere in the sub-RM800,000 region and 2 firm bookings have been made for the car so far.
