Levante, the Maserati of SUVs. This car arrived in the UK in the latter part of 2016 but has been a relevation, offering a fantastic alternative to its rivals in the luxury SUV market. Initially offered with a 3.0 V6 Turbodiesel engine, the Levante is now available with an impressive 3.0 V6 petrol engine producing 425bhp and a truly incredible, seductive sound, badged Levante S. Both provide everything you would expect with a Maserati. From snarling responsiveness, impressive torque, smooth refinement from the automatic gearbox and remarkable fuel efficiency.
For those considering a luxury SUV, the Levante should certainly feature on the shopping list. With striking good looks and impressive levels of equipment as standard, this is a car that offers both sumptuous levels of luxury and fantastic driving dynamics, with permanent all-wheel drive, responsive engines and, especially in the case of the petrol-powered Levante S, a smile-inducing soundtrack.
There are two levels of trim available; GranSport and GranLusso. With GranLusso, the emphasis is on luxury, with front Comfort seats with 12-way power adjustment and a memory function. There is also the choice of full premium Italian leather or the Zegna Silk Edition upholstery, complimented beautifully by Radica open-pore wood trim. With GranSport, the body-hugging front Sport seats offer excellent support aswell as 12-way power adjustment and memory function. There’s also the powered Sport steering wheel, brushed chrome gearshift paddles and power foot pedals with aluminium Sport finish.
In-car technology benefits from a beautiful 8.4” touchscreen infotainment system, offering DAB radio, navigation with 3D mapping, Apple CarPlay and much more as standard. This state-of-the-art system can be perfectly paired with uplifting audio, with the option of a 900-watt Harmon Kardon Premium Sound System or, for the real music aficionados, the Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system, which boasts an impressive 1280-watt amplifier for immersive sound.
Advanced safety systems include Highway Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with stop & go, Forward Collision Warning and Active Blind Spot Assist.
A breathtakingly beautiful luxury SUV with real off-road capabilities and true Italian styling, the Maserati Levante is currently available to test drive at Graypaul Nottingham, the East Midlands’ official Maserati dealer. Browse to Sytner.co.uk/Maserati to find out more and arrange a test drive.
