The Maserati of SUVs
There are certain universal cultural metrics which define the best of an industry, form, or achievement. The Wayne Gretzky of…. The Meryl Streep of… The Bob Dylan of… The iPhone of… The Harvard of… These measurements speak not only to the excellence of its subjects, both in comparison and standard, but to the place that each hold in our collective understanding of respect and pedigree. So imagine the poignancy and potency of such an idiom when it can be self-referential.
Meet the 2019 Maserati Levante SUV, the Maserati of SUVs.
After making its mark on the SUV market when introduced at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Levante finally graced our roads of Europe in 2016, and in just three years has risen to prominence in the crowded, yet discerning, SUV space – as you would expect from a Maserati. Elegant in its craftsmanship, balletic in its handling, and peerless in its performance, the 2019 Maserati Levante SUV is a mid-sized SUV for the astute driver, who requires more from their automotive choices.
Powered by V6 and V8 engines built at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy, the 2019 Maserati Levante SUV reaches up to 590 hp and 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds. Complimented by the Maserati Q4 intelligent all-wheel-drive and Maserati Skyhook performance suspension with electronic damping control for sports handling, plus 5-way active air suspension, the Levante is built for stability and composure on all terrains at all times.
Maserati’s addition to the mid-size luxury crossover SUV marketplace comes equipped with the style and comfort one would expect from the Italian automotive icon. The interiors are textured with leather or class-exclusive Ermenegildo Zegna silk upholstery. Its sleek profile is accentuated by subtlety and grace, and “from every angle, its imposing presence reflects a heritage of uncompromising Italian style in the finest grand-touring tradition.”
The Maserati of SUVs. It simply doesn’t get any better, on the road or off.
