Now that Maserati has unveiled its new luxury SUV, the Levante, you’re dreaming of how nice it would be to park one in your driveway. Of course, the thought of buying one might leave you feeling a bit confused as you may not be sure which fits your needs and your budget.
The 2017 Maserati Levante is available as the base Levante and the Levante S. The main difference between the two is the engine output. The Maserati Levante is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine making 350 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Maserati Levante goes from 0 to 62 mph in 6 seconds flat with a top speed of 155 mph. The 2017 Maserati Levante S, on the other hand, is powered by the same engine but produces 430 horsepower and 427 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the same 8-speed automatic transmission, it goes from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds with a top speed of 164 mph.
Surprisingly enough, each 2017 Maserati Levante model comes with a long list of standard features including a power tailgate, leather upholstery, an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Navigation, a Bose premium audio system, dual-zone climate system, keyless start/entry, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, hill descent control, and much more. So, no matter which Levante you pick, you will be able to walk out of the showroom with everything you need to enjoy your new Maserati.
If you want other features on top of those standard features, the 2017 Maserati Levante can be ordered with many different packages including two different Sport Packages, two different Luxury packages, a Climate Package, a Premium Package and a Driver Assistance Package. The Sport Packages mostly add visual enhancements to the Levante with bigger wheels, body kit upgrades, and leather material upgrades on the inside. The main Luxury Package adds a range of safety features, ventilated seats, remote start, a Harman Kardon Premium sound system and different steering wheel choices. The 2017 Maserati Levante Luxury Zenga package builds on the original luxury package with premium Italian leather with bespoke silk from Ermenegildo Zegna. The Climate Package adds rear heated seats and a heated steering wheel while the Premium Package (available only on the Levante) adds parking sensors, blind spot monitoring and remote start. The Driver Assistance Package adds a range of safety features including surround view 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure alert, and more.
