Previewed by the Kubang concept, the production model has a sporty front fascia with a prominent grille, slender headlights, and large air intakes. The crossover also features a sculpted hood, front fender vents, and a sloping roof. Customers will also notice muscular rear fenders, a tailgate-mounted spoiler, and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.
The leaked interior image doesn't reveal much but we can see this particular model has two-tone leather upholstery, carbon fiber trim, and metallic accents.
The entry-level Levante will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 350 horsepower. It will enable the crossover to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 6.3 seconds before hitting a top speed of 151 mph.
Buyers looking for something more powerful can order a Levante with an upgraded 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 430 hp. Thanks to the extra oomph, the dash from 0-62 mph takes 5.2 seconds and the top speed increases to 164 mph.
At the other end of the spectrum, there's a Levante diesel that has a 3.0-liter V6 engine with 275 hp. It allows the model to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 6.9 seconds before topping out at 143 mph.
