Maserati’s unusual desire to generate money via the sales of cars has led them down the path to this: a Maserati-badged SUV. We’ve known this was coming, teased by the 2011 Kubang concept, and now it looks like our Dutch pals at Autoweek.nl got shots of the actual production Maserati Levante before its upcoming…
Although still calling it a "concept," we got a skosh more information about Maserati's Kubang sport SUV—including a promise, however vague, that the engines might be something special. (Sorry, though, Chrysler fans: That thing ain't got a Hemi.)
Turns out Europe's Photoshopping prognosticators didn't need to create a mockup of the upcoming Maserati SUV concept — the brand's first ever — from scratch. They could have simply dusted off an old Giugiaro design. Because that's what Maserati did — even giving it the same name of that 2003 SUV concept — the Kubang.
