2019 Maserati Levante
If ever there was proof that the SUV concept had taken the world by storm, it was on full display at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show where none other than Maserati displayed its Levante concept for the very first time. Of course, the Levante wasn’t just another SUV in the pack; thanks to its Maserati DNA, it finally emerged in production form in 2016 as a thoroughly sorted high-performance vehicle that just happened to fit the SUV template in most important regards.
True Maserati Fashion
But again, it was still very much a Maserati, and that included details such as the low bonnet line and the frameless side windows that all lent a degree of cool to the finished product. That traditional Maserati flavour also extended to things like the exhaust note which, in true Italian fashion, was capable of stirring the blood in no uncertain terms.
Tailored Driving Experience
The Levante’s SUV credentials are boosted by its Q4 all-wheel-drive system, air suspension with adjustable ride height and the adaptive dampers that can be tailored to suit the prevailing road conditions.
Best of Both Worlds
Performance is also a great match with the Maserati brand’s values, starting with a V6 engine for fuel efficiency, combined with twin turbochargers for that all-important shove in the back when you need it. An eight-speed automatic transmission is fitted, making the Levante the perfect tool for just about any job. Just as a modern SUV should be.
Features include: Sport pedals, illuminated door sills, keyless entry and start, panoramic sunroof, 20-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers, collapsible spare wheel, navigation, dual-zone climate-control, Android and Apple CarPlay connectivity, adjustable dampers, air-suspension with variable ride height, Trident headrests, reversing camera.
