Al Tayer Motors, the official importer-dealer of Maserati in the UAE, and Premier Motors, the official dealer for Maserati in Abu Dhabi, have commenced deliveries of the Maserati Levante in the UAE. Maserati Levante cars are now available in the country for client test drives from showrooms located on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, Khalidiya in Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road in Sharjah.
The Levante made its first official appearance in the UAE with a static pilot car, just weeks after its first reveal at the Geneva Motor show. In order to achieve the high quality standards and maintain its traditional “Made in Italy” credentials, Maserati strategically invested in a new production line at the historic Mirafiori plant in Turin.
Hossam Hosni, Vice President, Ferrari and Maserati, Al Tayer Motors says “We’ve had a lot of interest and even orders since the first reveal of the Levante in the UAE and now finally our customers will be able to test drive it. It’s a beautiful car, no doubt, but only those who have experienced it on-road and off-road can really appreciate its capabilities. Maserati has found a way to achieve amazing functionality and off-road capability while maintaining the style and performance of a real Maserati, as we have come to love them.”
The Levante is available in two variants, the Levante and the Levante S, both featuring latest evolution of the Maserati 3-litre V6 engine with twin turbo. The top of the range Levante S with 430hp makes it to 100km/h in just 5.2” and has a top speed of 264 km/h. The 350hp Levante achieves the 0-100 km/h sprint in 6.0” and a 251km/h top speed. Both versions adopt an eight-speed automatic ZF gearbox with a choice of drive modes: ‘Normal’, ‘I.C.E.’, ‘Sport’ or ‘Off-road’.
The Levante also comes with a wide range of new options and content, including: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, Forward Collision Warning and Brake Assist System, Lane Departure Warning, Surround View camera, a 8.4″ Touch Screen display and a high level of customisation that includes two cutting-edge packages: Luxury and Sport. With the Levante a new wind is blowing through the SUV segment, guaranteeing the passion, flair and exclusivity that have distinguished all Maserati models for over a century.
The starting price of the Levante is AED 329,000, and AED 369,000 for the Levante S. The car is retailed through Al Tayer Motors and Premier Motors showrooms inclusive of a three year unlimited kilometres warranty as well as a three year/60,000 kilometres service and maintenance package.
