Because this Maserati will also be thought to annoy the mother of all the high-performance SUVs, but, when you drive it, it ends inexorably that you overlook the mind as well other references: a Porsche Macan and a Jaguar F-Pace, for example, which will also be smaller and more compact, but which, in some respects, remind the way of being on the road of this first sport utility made in Modena. With good peace of those who are convinced that, when talking about four wheels, the size of the car body can still be an absolute discriminator.
2018 Maserati Levante Redesign Interior and Exterior
The fascination of the blazon. The five meters back well evident when you go aboard: The typical Maserati luxury has all the ease to relax in a cockpit that does not have much to envy to that of an Audi Q7. At least as to size, because from the point of view of the quality achieved, instead, the 2018 Maserati Levante remains a step backward compared to the perfection of German rivals. The question as always of details, starting from the vaguely “crude” movement of some hatches or from the feeling of some little keys to the rank and figures at stake. But in the end, with the Maserati, it always ends in the same way: in two and two four the exclusivity of the atmosphere takes over and these imperfections are soon forgotten. The question of fascination? Yes, even that, useless to deny it.
The travel great. As they proudly keep to underline in Modena, this is the Maserati SUV. But rest assured: in his DNA there is also a place for quality such as comfort and versatility and in fact, on the 2018 Maserati Levante, you travel to the great: you are very well isolated from the ugliness of the road, even if you never get to that feeling of flying carpet that air suspensions often carry with it.
Driving dynamics. And then there is the other Levante, the one that reveals itself when you start tinkering on the magic keys to the left of the shift lever: M key to switch to paddle, then a pressure on sport and you start to get into the topic, with the V6 that (Finally, Lasciatemel say) you feel with the tones that you expect from a car of the trident.

2018 Maserati Levante Performance
High performance SUV. Beyond the more than twenty horses, the six V-cylinders is basically the same as the Ghibli, but here it manages to make an even better figure, in some ways.

A speech that is worth when you ask everything, but that is equally true even if you do not sink the accelerator, because even in those fringing the Levant moves with the authoritativeness that is permissible to expect from a car with the Trident.
