Levante is a wind that blows across the Mediterranean and can change from tranquil calm to gale force in an instant. The Maserati SUV that bears its name is just the same, although its mighty power always remains under perfect control.
The Levante SUV is inspired by the progressive, sporting spirit of Maserati, bringing all-terrain capability to the finest grand-touring tradition. Its superior power and handling, coupe-like lines and elegant appointments distinguish it from every other SUV. With a balance of luxury, strength and nimble composure, Levante makes every journey an adventure—an experience true to Maserati.
With GranLusso trim, the styling is focused on luxury. GranSport trim, meanwhile, concentrates on engaging driving dynamics. Each offers important new advanced driver-assistance features and an innovative new power steering system, as well as a significant power boost for the Maranello-built V6 engine.
GranLusso & GranSport
A new journey begins in Levante—the Maserati of SUVs.
The GranLusso offers front Comfort seats with extensive 12-way power adjustment and a memory function for instant access to preset configurations. There is also the choice of either full premium Italian leather or Ermenegildo Zegna Silk Edition upholstery, both beautifully complemented by Radica open-pore wood trim. Additionally, the power-adjustable steering wheel is finished in fine wood.
GranSport: more dynamic style
The front Sport seats hug driver and passenger, offering excellent support as well as 12-way power adjustment and memory function. A firmly bolstered, powered Sport steering wheel with multifunction buttons, brushed chrome gearshift paddles and power aluminum Sport foot pedals are sure to appeal to purists.
Together, elegant Italian style, meticulously crafted finishes and a unique, race-bred energy inspire luxurious, long-distance travel.
The Levante also imparts a liberating feeling of spacious comfort for all on board, a welcome surprise given the coupe-like styling and compact exterior proportions of Maserati’s striking SUV.
The seats of the Levante are hand-stitched and finished in sumptuous leather. Maserati also offers the Ermenegildo Zegna Silk Edition interior, standard on GranLusso. It combines the finest leather with mulberry silk inserts, embellished with a hand-stitched micro-chevron pattern. The door panels, roof lining and sun visor are covered with Zegna silk jersey.
All switches and controls are designed to be close at hand and intuitive in their operation. The speedometer and rev counter, housed in a leather-finished binnacle, are large and backlit with soft white light to ensure crisp clarity at all times. Integrated among this instrumentation is a 7-inch TFT display that presents essential driving data.
Features and technology
Riding on air
To fulfill its dual role of luxury SUV and go-anywhere four-by-four, the Maserati Levante features some of the most sophisticated air suspension technology in the world.
Along with advanced Maserati Q4 intelligent all-wheel-drive technology, the Levante also benefits from an advanced active air suspension system that raises or lowers the vehicle according to need or preference. With six settings to choose from (including Park), the driver can select whatever height is appropriate for the road or terrain, from a high clearance for challenging off-road excursions to a low setting for fast, smooth and efficient highway driving.
The Levante is the only SUV in its class equipped with mechanical Limited-Slip Differential (LSD) at the rear axle. Fitted as standard, this technology optimizes traction in all driving situations. The asymmetric locking feature offers 25% lockup under power and 35% under release.
Intuitive engagement, real-world assistance and adaptable enjoyment.
Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+): the elegant display of the 8.4-inch MTC+ unit takes pride of place at the center of the Levante dashboard. With a minimum of buttons that incorporate multimedia and cabin functions, it can be operated in three ways: via the multi-touchscreen, the rotary control on the center console or through voice commands.
Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™: the MTC+ supports the convenience of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto mirroring functions 1.
Harman Kardon Premium Sound system: this state-of-the-art entertainment system delivers rich and detailed sound quality, whether the source is radio, MP3 player, iPhone® or audio streaming device. It features a 900-watt amplifier and 14 speakers with high-power handling capability carefully distributed throughout the cabin.
Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system: this optional entertainment system features 17 speakers, including mid-range drivers and rear woofers made from Kevlar®, each strategically built into the SUV’s architecture and powered by a 1,280-watt amplifier to deliver immersive sound for all on board.
Safety and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
The Maserati Stability Program (MSP) uses an array of sensors to constantly monitor driving status. It can then deploy a host of safety and performance systems to maintain handling and grip. If, for instance, a skid is detected, MSP selectively reduces engine torque and can activate the brakes with finely varied inputs to restore stability within milliseconds.
Advanced Driving Assistance Systems
The Levante is equipped with an impressively comprehensive range of Advanced Driving Assistance Systems. It means even greater peace of mind, whether you’re on a continent-crossing grand tour, dashing across town or taking on rough terrain.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
LKA provides valuable input if the driver is about to unintentionally leave a lane 3. A digital camera behind the rearview mirror continuously monitors road markings to keep track of the course ahead. The instrument panel display shows the specific status of the vehicle. White lines on either side of the vehicle image indicate that it is safely in lane. One yellow line indicates that the Levante is moving off-center, right or left. One flashing yellow line warns of lane departure. At that point, when the Visual & Haptic box is selected in the touchscreen display, LKA actively steps in with corrective steering torque. Activation of the turn indicator overrides the system.
Highway Assist System (HAS)
HAS combines the virtues of Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Lane Keeping Assist to make highway driving even easier 3. Using information picked up from a digital camera mounted behind the rearview mirror and a radar system in the front grille, HAS automatically keeps the vehicle centered in its lane, at a preselected speed and at a chosen distance from the vehicle ahead. It will even decelerate the Levante as traffic conditions dictate. To ensure safety, HAS requires the driver to keep his or her hands on the steering wheel at all times.
Forward Collision Warning Plus
This system, in combination with Adaptive Cruise Control, monitors vehicles ahead and warns if the approach could result in a rear-end collision 5. This is linked to the Advanced Brake Assist system, engineered to provide additional braking during an emergency stop. If the warning does not prompt any action from the driver, the Automated Emergency Braking system automatically applies the brakes to reduce vehicle speed.
Traffic Sign Recognition
Even the best drivers fail to recognize traffic signs on occasion, and for this reason, Traffic Sign Recognition is a particularly useful feature 4. This system monitors three types of sign: speed limits, temporary speed limits due to conditions such as heavy rain, and no-overtaking zones. It then displays the signs digitally in the cluster display of the instrument panel. The system operates using data acquired from a digital camera mounted behind the rearview mirror and from the navigation system.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function
Adaptive Cruise Control constantly monitors the vehicle ahead, maintaining a preset distance 3. With the Stop & Go function, the Levante will also adjust to the speed of the vehicle in front until it comes to a complete stop, if the stop is less than two seconds.
Active Blind Spot Assist and Rear Cross Path function
With this system, a warning icon appears in the exterior door mirrors when a vehicle enters the driver’s blind spot 6. Three levels of support can be selected if the driver nonetheless initiates a lane change. Minimally, the system maintains the visual alert in the door mirrors; additionally, alerts are backed up with an acoustic warning. Or for maximum intervention, the system applies steering torque in the opposite direction of the attempted lane change. The intensity of this torque is also adaptable according to preference.
The Rear Cross Path function is a useful feature that emits a warning signal when an unseen vehicle is approaching, from the right or left, while reversing out of a parking space 7.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
Maserati Genuine Accessories offer the perfect combination of exclusive design and exceptional functionality. The attention to detail, style and quality of each accessory reveal the very essence of the Maserati brand. The range includes exclusive wheels rims and tires, transport and luggage solutions, protection and care features, and safety equipment.
Epic power, smooth refinement
Levante’s 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, available in two power specifications specific to each model, offers everything you would expect of a Maserati—from snarling responsiveness to effortless long-distance refinement. They are also remarkably efficient.
