Maserati has a rich motorsports heritage, and now moves towards a new chapter with the release of the first Maserati sport-utility vehicle. The world will get its first look at the Levante next month at the Geneva Motor Show. According to Maserati, the Levante will have gasoline and diesel engines, though it didn’t specify what’s under the hood for US-bound models. The first units are already in production and come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive capability. Taking styling cues from the brand, the grille, curvy fenders, headlight shape, and vents on the Levante are similar to the Ghibli and Quattroporte. Maserati joins Bentley, Lamborghini, and other luxury sport brands who have recently added SUVs to their portfolios.
