The Italian Trident goes big

We saw Maserati’s Kubang Concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, and just a short time later, Maserati confirmed that a production version would eventually grace showrooms. It may have taken five years, but Maserati finally pulled the sheet off of the Maserati Levante and marked its entrance to the flourishing SUV market at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. On the outside, Maserati’s new SUV/Crossover is brilliantly stunning and puts the BMW X6, for example, to shame in terms of styling. Inside, there is no mistaking the Levante as a Maserati, since the brand took styling cues from its sedan lineup. Leather upholstery is standard, with a high-grade leather used on upper trim levels, there are 12-way adjustable seats up front, and an 8.4-inch display in the dash. Under the hood, there is a total of three engine packages available ranging from 275 horsepower up to a decent 430.

The whole purpose of the Levante, aside from entering the SUV/Crossover market, is to boost sales up to 50,000 units a year globally. That’s a pretty tall order for a vehicle that some fear strays a little too far away from the brand’s roots. With models like the BMW X6 and the Porsche Cayenne as main competitors, the Levante has some work to do. So, now we’re left with this questions: Is the Levante worthy of its trident badge, and can’t it really stand up against its German Rivals?

The truth is that we don’t know yet, but check out our review below to find out for yourself.
