The first SUV in Maserati history has been operating worldwide since the summer of 2016. In the first full year, 89 Levante units were sold in this country, by 2020 there were only 26 – not surprisingly, since the summer season there has been no diesel. The latest entry-level model is marked by GT, a 330 hp non-combustible petrol engine – but only four combustion chambers. For the 22 percent NoVA, the five-digit base price is no longer enough, making this Levante the most expensive four-cylinder on the market.
Officially speaking, there is a bit against the base model, the two-liter engine moves a heavy SUV with motivation, thanks to the e-boost and e-compressor, the eight-speed automatic does not back down in fear every time you step on it. gas pedal. But in terms of sound, this Maserati is disappointing, when the cold sounds like diesel on the outside – and not as you expect for a Trident inside, even in Game mode. It’s a shame, because although Levante has been moving forward for years, in terms of prestige it would be a very attractive option for luxury SUVs from Mercedes, Audi or BMW – but they are cheaper despite the sportier six-cylinder.
Engine / gear – The four-cylinder, which sounds insensitive under normal circumstances, moves a heavy meat, eight-speed automatic SUV works well and does not shift down in fear immediately – paddle switches around 511 euros are on the way when burning. .
Chassis and Pull – Despite the air suspension, it is rather tight, and the ground clearance may increase for off-road use. Very safe in speed angles as well as agile thanks to successful weight distribution, with absolutely no restrictions during load change, thanks to 1A for wheel drive. well-fitted brakes, absolutely sensitive steering wheel.
Operations and Multimedia – Positive sitting position, for 511 euros even pedals can be replaced electronically. High quality, small media screen, fast understandable system, voice control is not very sophisticated. Smart phone connection, but no charge for word processing. Real knots and switches are available. USB slots also in the back, enough shelves. A moderate back view, camera purchase is a must.
Interior and Trunk – Adequate space for passengers and luggage, due to external dimensions, of course, is not a hit. A small amount of thighs in the back and a more moderate part, but the back parts can be adjusted – if you put them down (split 2: 1 plus sliding hatch), the floor remains the same.
Inside and Inside – A typical dowry, of course one can expect more for the purchase price, such as a moving system, LED lights or heating seats. Adequate coverage for very steep tariffs, a wide range of privatization. High quality materials, loving, clean and solid processed. Unusual: framed side windows.
Protection & Security – There are no attractions in the range of airbags, convenient support systems (up to non-free driving) for extra money only.
Prices and Costs – Despite the six-cylinder, the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE are much cheaper and do not have the worst equipment, the Porsche Cayenne is priced the same. use no sense. Three-year warranty including mobility, which can be extended to four or five. Short service sessions, a narrow network of workshops, are probably hard to sell.
Since slightly elevated, there has been a high-pressure multimedia screen that analog devices love.
