Maserati has announced the introduction of a petrol engine to its Levante SUV model in the UK, going back on its original claim that there was not enough demand for the model here.

One of the criticisms levelled at Maserati since the Levante was unveiled at last year’s Geneva motor show has been that the model was only available in the UK with a diesel engine, while other markets were offered a petrol alternative.

Maserati has now rectified this matter with the Levante S, powered by a 430hp 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine built by Ferrari. The Levante S has a top speed of 164mph and a 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds.

The petrol engine joins the V6 275hp 3.0-litre turbo diesel powertrain that was launched in the UK last year.

   

The Levante S comes with active air suspension as standard and offers five varying ride heights. Intelligent Q4 AWD is included and a wide range of optional equipment is offered.

The Levante S starts from £70,755 and will be available in the UK from September.
