The production-spec Maserati Levante made its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Its design is based on the Kubang concept that was displayed the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. The front of the vehicle features large grille with vertical chrome slats and a Maserati trident logo in the centre. The grille is flanked by slim headlamp clusters with LED DRLs. The front bumper gets a silver scuff plate and round fog lamps that are placed just under the headlights. The Levante features a coupe-like roofline, vents on fenders and the trident logo on the C-pillar. At the rear, the Levante gets LED tail lights, rear bumper with scuff plate and quad-exhaust tips.

In India, the Levante will be offered with a 3.0-litre, V6 diesel engine that produces 271 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 600 Nm of torque @ 2,000-2,600 rpm. The engine features an integrated start/stop system and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and a Q4 all-wheel drive system. Maserati claims that the Levante diesel can do the 0-100 km/h sprint in 6.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 230 km/h.

Looks like the designer started from the back and lost interest when he came round to the front.
Amazing side profile and the sweeping wheel arches, but an ungainly front!

After seeing it in flesh I feel the opposite. It seems though he was in a hurry when it came to the back.

I saw this in flesh and found a striking resemblance to the Macan from the rear.

This probably will be the most practical Maserati for Indian roads.

A few may even say that the grille resembles the facelifted S-Cross

Don't get the logic here. Almost a dozen cars delivered already and they're launching it now?
