Priced from R1 961 000, the hybrid-powered Levante’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, complete with ‘eBooster’, incorporates 48 V tech. The mild-hybrid unit, coupled with a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, produces 243 kW and 450 Nm of torque, available from 5 750 r/min and 2 250 r/min, respectively. The Modena-based car manufacturer claims a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 6.0 seconds and a top speed of 240 km/h.

As standard, the Levante Hybrid ships with 19-inch Zefiro wheels. Seven other wheel options — measuring from 20 to 21 inches — are on offer. Six exterior colour options are available. These include Bianco (white), Grigio Evoluzione, Nero Ribelle, Grigio Maratea, Grigio, and Blu Emozione. An array of interior colour options are also available.

The Levante Hybrid is also available with a quartet of packages. The driver assistance package includes adaptive cruise control, advanced brake assist, and a surround-view camera system. 

The Nerissimo package features a black finish for the quad exhaust tips, front grille, side mirrors and roof rails, among others.
