Maserati’s First Crossover

The 2017 Maserati Levante is a notable crossover, not just because it is the brand’s first, but also because it delivers. Coming in at a top speed of 165 mph, this crossover is one to consider when you’re searching for the perfect model. It took only 22 months to get this car from conception to the road–a response to the overwhelming demand for the crossover trend.

Built and engineered in Italy, in authentic Maserati fashion, this crossover emulates the Maserati Ghibli. It’s lower to the ground, wider, and longer than other crossovers like the Porsche Cayenne and Jeep Grand Cherokee. One of the details that makes this model so sleek is the front grill’s thin slats. It’s a change from the mesh that you’d typically find on a Maserati. Not to worry about airflow though, as there is a set of active grille shutters on the interior.

The V6 twin-turbo engine has 424 horsepower with a 0-60 time of 5 seconds. A true Italian sports car. One of the best attributes of this vehicle is the various driving modes. You can choose from Normal, Sport, Off-Road, I.C.E. which impacts the height transmission, and suspension among other things.
