Maserati Quattroporte


The mid-size luxury sedan market is a big one, and it’s a segment that Maserati is chomping at the bit to enter.  BMW, Mercedes and Audi sell hundreds of thousands of E-segment cars every year, and there is huge opportunity for Maserati to compete in this market segment.  The folks in Modena confirmed some time ago that there would soon be a Maserati to compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5-Series, but they didn’t tell us what it would be called.  Quattroporte Bambino, perhaps? Maybe Maseratina as it’s called inside Maserati? 

Well, you can wonder no more, as Maserati has trademarked the name “Levante” for the upcoming E-segment car.  “Levante” means “rising,” just as you do every morning (especially if you’re excited to drive your new Maserati).  Details about the car are still scarce, but you can bet on the availability of all-wheel drive, a powerful V6 engine, and possibly a high-output V8 or a diesel option.  Stay tuned to the Twin Cities Luxury Auto Blog for more details as we get them.

Motor Authority also released some spy photos of the next generation 2014 Maserati Quattroporte taken during prototype road testing.  There are several photos of the test mule available, but it’s heavily camouflaged.  Head on over to Motor Authority to view the photos.
