Soon after in 2016, the Levante SUV came along. The Levante represents the Trident marque’s first stab at the SUV market in its century of auto manufacturing. With the rise of SUV-typed vehicles, the Levante became one of the preferred models in the Luxury segment around the globe; Malaysia soon followed the trend.

Those red callipers are paired with 6-piston Brembo Dual Cast brakes. Last but not least, LED Matric headlights are standard for this luxury SUV.
