Derived from the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans, the Levante is Maserati's first-ever SUV.
Most versions come with either a 345-hp or a 424-hp turbo V6.
Each is mated to a quick-and-smooth eight-speed automatic.
The Trofeo version uses a turbocharged V8.
The Levante delivers a thrilling sound from the Ferrari-developed engine, with nimble, athletic handling and--courtesy of the standard air suspension--a steady ride.
