South America

The Metal Leve brand has a strong tradition and has been in the MAHLE brand family for decades. It has become a synonym for engine components. A few years ago, filters were also added to the Metal Leve product range, identifying Metal Leve with strong brand values and high customer commitment in both product groups. This brand is so important to MAHLE that its product range is continuously being expanded. Piston rings were first added to the product portfolio. All new products that are launched, such as exhaust gas turbochargers, are also sold under the name Metal Leve.

Please note that this brand is not available in Europe.
