GranLusso and GranSport trim options
The 2018 Levante is offered in two models: Levante and Levante S. Both are available with optional GranLusso and GranSport trims, comprehensively equipped according to your personal wishes. The new GranLusso trim emphasizes even greater luxury with stylish interior and exterior appointments. The new GranSport trim, meanwhile, accentuates engaging vehicle dynamics. Each trim option offers new advanced driving assistance features, including an innovative new power steering system, and a choice of two powerful V6 engines built in Maranello. A new journey has begun—with the Maserati of SUVs.
GranLusso: luxury is its favorite sport
Beautiful finishes and refined surfaces are everywhere to be found on the GranLusso. Thoughtfully designed details—like protection plates beneath the front bumper featuring a striking metallic finish—clearly signal Levante’s four-wheel-drive capability. The roof rails have a metallic trim, too. The GranLusso badge is impeccably integrated into the lower surface of each front fender.
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: heights of dynamic elegance
The front of the Levante is dominated by a large and assertive front grille, finished in highly polished Piano Black or, optionally, in chrome. The protection plates beneath the front bumper and the roof rails are also finished in Piano Black trim. The GranSport badge appears at the base of each front fender, while soft-close doors add a touch of quiet luxury to Maserati’s dynamic, sporting SUV
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.
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.
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 Security
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. 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.
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
LKA provides valuable input if the driver is about to unintentionally leave a lane. 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.
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. 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..
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. 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.
Epic power, smooth refinement.
