U.S. Drivers Just Can’t Get Enough of the Maserati Levante
Maserati has long reigned supreme as one of the world’s most iconic – and most widely desired – auto brand. Known across continents as the stuff of legends, crafting both race winners and famously-refined consumer cars alike, Maserati has rightfully earned its place as a standard among luxury models within the collective imagination. But ask the drivers who have flocked to Maserati in the past year just what has convinced so many to choose the trident nameplate once again, and the answer is almost sure to be consistent with: the 2017 Maserati Levante.
New for this model year and proudly bearing the name of a mighty Mediterranean wind, the 2017 Levante has swept into focus with serious force, grabbing attention and encouraging buyers everywhere to give Maserati a look in ways they may not have otherwise considered. This impressive SUV – the first of its kind behind the Maserati brand – is, simply put, revolutionizing what many Americans think of when they consider a Maserati vehicle. With just one look at what Maserati offers, there’s no surprise as to why so many drivers are taken with this amazing luxury SUV model.
Here’s a look at some of the 2017 Levante’s most outstanding features, as well as a bit of insight into just what’s drawing so many U.S. drivers to choose Maserati to get 2017 started right. Take a look for yourself and make your own judgement – we’re willing to bet you’ll be pretty drawn to it as well.
Style and Comfort Go Hand-in-Hand
Before you even get a chance to get behind the wheel of the 2017 Levante, chances are you’ve already got some ideas about what to expect from a new Maserati. Legendary for their grace, style, and unmatched luxury, the vehicles that bear that famous trident logo are known far and wide as some of the most impressively designed vehicles on the road today. The 2017 Levante seems to take this one step further, blending all that expected grace and refined design into a sporty SUV frame, offering a unique glimpse at what a confluence of style and power can look like both outside and in.
Boasting classic Italian design sensibilities with a sleek, sporty look fit for an off-roader, the 2017 Levante combines a smooth, muscular flowing form with the wide, aggressive stance found on your typical SUV. These work together to afford the 2017 Levante a unique blend of grace-meets-ruggedness, and this has proven to be just what many upscale U.S. drivers have been waiting for from a luxury brand. And while the front grille is styled to recall the design of iconic Maseratis long past, the silhouette shows the Levante’s true colors as a road-ready warrior built to take on the challenges of the coming road.
And that’s all before even taking a seat inside the cockpit, which comes fully decked-out in luxury with a spacious cabin built to fit five in total comfort. That’s thanks to fine Italian leather upholstery matched with real wood or carbon-fiber trim along the interior. Plus, you’ll even have the option for the special Sport or Luxury packages, including the exclusive Zegna Package silk interior, which help to distinguish your Levante from just about every other SUV on the road. One look and there’s no mistaking – this SUV is all Maserati, and it’s here to make a statement.
Top-Quality Tech for Your Most Refined Entertainment
Today’s vehicles rarely make it off the assembly line without the finest in today’s most advanced entertainment and safety technology, and it would be unlike Maserati not to push the limits as to what this can mean in a luxury car. Enter the 2017 Levante, which comes fully-loaded with all the best in tech for today’s drivers – meaning you’ll have as much fun simply sitting in your Levante as you will taking it for a roaring ride.
Just look, for example, at the Levante’s impressive and all-new 8.4-inch touchscreen display, which offers easy access to all your favorite entertainment, thanks to a new central control knob, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the available Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound to keep the music blasting as long as you’re behind the wheel. Plus, with a fine-tuned climate control system and navigation there to get you home safe, you can keep the adventure rolling as long as you like without missing a moment of fun.
And as impressive as top-tier entertainment tech can be in a sporty luxury model, it can also speak a lot to safety – and the 2017 Levante really makes use of today’s best safety tech. Packing in some of the most advanced preventative and responsive safety technology on the market today – including six dual-stage airbags, active headrests and a tire pressure monitoring system, Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology designed to help prevent collisions, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-path and blind spot detection, lane-departure and forward-collision warning systems and hill descent control – the Levante truly works behind the scenes to help you keep your passengers and your investment safe no matter what.
Power That’s as Impressive as it is Reliable
Of course, no SUV can truly call itself a “sport vehicle” without the right amount of power to back up that claim – and on the 2017 Levante, lack of power is one thing you’ll never struggle with. That’s because the 2017 Levante features an impressive Maserati-designed and Ferrari-built 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine that offers a whopping 345 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque to help power through any challenge. Or, choose the boosted V6 Twin-Turbo Engine with 424 horsepower and 428 ft.-lb. of torque and take your ride to the next level. Whichever you choose, there’s no denying the 2017 Levante earns the distinction of “Sport Utility Vehicle.”
No matter your reasons, there’s never been a better time to see for yourself just what makes a Maserati so special – and by choosing the 2017 Levante, you’re getting a taste for what it is that makes this brand such an iconic hallmark in the automotive world. Try a Levante for yourself and see what all the excitement is about – chances are, you’re going to love what you experience behind that wheel. But just ask the drivers who have flocked to their Maserati dealer in New York in the past year about what convinced them to choose the trident nameplate, and the answer is almost sure to be the 2017 Maserati Levante.
