The concept that led to the Levante, the Maserati Kubang, was unveiled in 2011 at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The Levante was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 1 March 2016, followed by a 2016 New York Auto Show.
The sibling bond with the Ghibli is easily recognisable inside, where the Levante’s architecture replicates much of the saloon’s layout. The aesthetic has been tweaked, though, to suit the SUV’s higher scuttle and to compliment the raised driving position – one of the car’s most likeable attributes.
Our car is fitted with the 3.0-litre V6 diesel with 275 horsepower that produces a 0-60mph time of under 7 seconds, more than quick enough for everyday driving whether it be in the city or on the country roads.
Offered with the remaining Maserati warranty until 2021, with a most recent service at Graypaul Nottingham in June 2020.
