This year India will be getting a Christmas gift from the Italian car manufacturer, Maserati as they will be launching their flagship SUV, Levante Trofeo in India by the end of 2019. The Levante Trofeo will be taking on the Lamborghini Urus which is priced at Rs 3 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). Maserati is already selling its comparatively detuned Levante in India but with Levante Trofeo’s entry into the market, luxury premium SUV owners will be spoilt for choice.
In an era where we a striving for electric vehicles running on batteries, here the Italian manufacturer focuses only on delivering an emotion that will stick with the owner for a lifetime. The Maserati Levante Trofeo will come with a 3.8-litre Twin-Turbo V8 engine that can sprint to the 100 km/h mark in just 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 300 km/h. All this performance frenzy comes from the Levante Trofeo’s staggering performance figure by the Twin Turbo V8, which is capable of churning out 590 horses at 6,250rpm and peak torque of 790Nm coming in between 2,250rpm and 5,000rpm. It also features a Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System. We all know that Italians are known for two things, their cars and their food, this Twin-Turbo engine will be manufactured by Ferrari in their own backyard in Maranello, Italy.
The Trofeo has an improved front fascia with some changes on the outside, also some exquisite touches on the inside as well. The interiors are covered in Pieno Fiore natural leather which will be available in three colours black, red, and tan. It also has the Trofeo logo stitched on the headrests along with some contrast stitching.
Guess what is more interesting and special about the Levante Trofeo? India will be the first ones in the right-hand drive market to get this mammoth of a vehicle. What a present indeed! Well, this present will definitely not be cheap, and we are expecting the Maserati Levante Trofeo to be half the price of the Lamborghini Urus, which will be around Rs. 1.5 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). What will you prefer buying if you had crores lying around, the Urus or the Levante Trofeo?
