590PS Maserati Levante Trofeo SUV to be launched in India in end of 2019
Italian automobile major Maserati is all about exotic offerings, which can be seen from its portfolio of Ghibli, Levante, Quattroporte, GranTurismo and the GranCabrio. The company will be adding a fast model to this range, the Levante Trofeo SUV, which will be officially launched in India in end 2019. Maserati has not mentioned the date of launch, which we believe could be somewhere around the festive season. What makes the Levante Trofeo an important SUV is the fact that India is one of the first countries to get the right hand drive version of this SUV.
Powering the 2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo is a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that is mated to the Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System, sending all of the 590PS to all four wheels. While the power output is produced at 6,250rpm, the maximum torque rating of this engine is 730Nm at 2,250 5,000 rpm. This petrol V8 is produced by Ferrari in Maranello. This engine is also seen in the Quattroporte sedan and is manufactured by Ferrari at Maranello, but produces 70PS and 19Nm more in this application.Maserati claims that the Levante Trofeo can touch 100kmph in 3.9s and has a stop speed of 300kmph.
In terms of design, the 2019 Levante Trofeo gets a restyled lower front fascia and rear bumper, providing a sportier yet sophisticated presence. The lower splitter, the side blades in the front air intakes, the side skirt inserts and the rear extractor, are made of ultralight, high-gloss carbon fibre. The hood design has been tweaked as it now features two aggressive air intakes for better cylinder head cooling. Inside, the 2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo comes with premium full grain Pieno Fiore natural leather available in black, red and tan, all with contrast stitching and Trofeo logo stitched on the headrests. The Maserati Levante Trofeo will compete with the likes of the Mercedes-AMG GLE63, the BMW X5M, and Range Rover Sport SVR.
