According to the soon to be replaced NEDC economy cycle, the 346bhp V6 should return up to 24.4mpg and emit 280g/km CO2.

The new engine joins the Levante range following a series of model year updates for the SUV, which debuted at the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed. The updates to the Porsche Cayenne rival include new adaptive matrix LED headlamps and 11 new exterior colour options.

Also launched at Goodwood was a new Levante GTS, which sits at the top of the lineup and powered by a 542bhp 3.8-litre V8. However, Maserati UK has not said whether this model will be reengineered for right hand drive and sold in the UK.

The new 346bhp V6 in the Levante is available to order now with prices starting from £61,425. In the Quattroporte prices kick off from £78,120.
