If you are willing to find out which are the main features of the new, upcoming model of the exclusive Italian automotive brand Maserati, then you have come to the right place.
A symbol of prestige, elegance, sportiness, performance and luxury, would definitely be The 2017 Maserati Levante SUV. This highly expecting vehicle was named after the Bologna’s street- Via Emilia Levante,where the Maserati brothers created the powerful company, bearing their names for over one century.
Having been the Fiat’s component for over 20 years, the global crisis, between 2011 and 2013, as well as the less demand of this Italian brand, has forced The Maserati company to launch this particular crossover.Being one of the two latest Maserati models,it is taught that Levante will open the SUV market and spread it among others.The Automotive News have announced that the sales dropped 13% globally to 8.221 cars in the second quarter, and according to that, the earnings were down with 30%.
These datas and the current decline are related to problems in China with the car deliveries,which were down 37% in the second quarter. This brand-new model is expected to boost Maserati sales to 50,000 cars a year. This is going to be the unique, beautiful, full- size crossover,but it won’t definitely be produced in Detroit, and won’t be similar to the Grand Cherokee. The mid-size crossover is based on the exterior design of the Brand’s Kubang concept vehicle, debuted at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show. The Levante design will be the combination anf the modified version of the both platforms- The Ghibli cars and The Quattroporte ones.
