The 2017 Maserati Levante is named after the warm Mediterranean winds that Maserati says can change from the gentlest and most timid of winds to ferocious monsters. The Maserati Levante is the company’s first ever luxury SUV. Perhaps a problem with this car is that it will compete with the likes of the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5 and X6. Fans of the Maserati will surely appreciate this car, which was originally meant to be based on Jeep’s Grand Cherokee. Instead, the company opted to base the Levante on the Quattroporte and the Ghibli.

The 2017 Maserati Levante can be regarded as an upgrade of the Quattroporte and the Ghibli sedans which came before it. The 2017 Maserati Levante’s exterior design is exceptionally beautiful.

The tires at the front and back are nice and wide with nice heavy-duty bumpers at both ends. The overall aesthetics of the 2017 Maserati Levante is amazing, leaving little room for improvement.

The 2017 Maserati Levante combines numerous different features of the very latest technology and the very latest hardware and software. The interior is adorned with high-quality wood and leather. The Maserati Levante 2017 has a good-looking and spacious cabin. It can comfortably carry all passengers along with their luggage. The interior of this vehicle is also very customizable, with 28 different color combinations. If you purchase the sporty version, you will get sporty seats rather than the conventional ones. This wonderfully made SUV provides not only wonderful aesthetics and comfy sitting, it also allows for a fantastic atmosphere as well. Along with that comes a brilliant infotainment system, which features a 900-watt 14 speaker system or a 1280-watt 17 speaker system, depending on the option you choose.
