About Maserati Levante

Maserati Levante 0-60 TimesMany people that are in the market for a high end car want the exuberance of a sports car with no of the drawbacks it carries with it and in 2002 Porsche gave the world the first real SUV that can handle the school run during the week and monster a B road on the weekend.

Today for a car maker to produce a brand new car the funds needed for research and development are so big that small car makers like Maserati have to start building cars that sell in larger volumes, and the best way to do that is to build a SUV to complete its range of cars, and so the Levante came to life.

A Brief Glimpse at the History

Maserati had a tortured history, the company changed hands ten times since the Maserati Brothers started the company in 1914 in Bologna, Italy. It was owned from Citroen to Ferrari, making some truly amazing and truly horrendous cars. Today Maserati is owned by the Fiat Chrysler Group, and by what we’ve been seeing they’re making some of the best build cars in their history.

Specs

Maserati Levante features two V6 engines, a 3.0 liter turbo diesel and a 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged gasoline unit, later down the production of the Levante will come a 560 horsepower V8, but more on that later.

  • Valve-train: Four cam, four valves per cylinder, twin overhead cams
  • Compression ratio 9.7:1
  • Transmission: 8 speed ZF sourced automatic transmission

Performance

Under the hood of the bold looking Italian body sits a twin-turbo, 3.0 liter V6 that propels the 4,400 lb SUV to 60mph in just 5.0 seconds. The powerful engine puts power to the ground through a 8-speed ZF sourced automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels for most of the time and transferring power to the front wheels when needed, giving the Levante a RWD feel, and sportiness like no other SUV on the market. Maserati did not leave a stone unturned in the performance department, from the suspension to the brakes everything is handling the V6 430hp with ease.

Fuel Economy

The Levante is a 4WD 194 inch 4,440 SUV, having that in mind the fuel consumption numbers aren’t bad at all.

Combined fuel consumptions are following: the 3.0 liter diesel gets an impressive combined figure of 32.6 mpg and the most powerful V6 gets 14 mpg city and 17 mpg highway

Safety

All Levantes come with traction-control, ABS and stability control as standard. Also the Levante is fitted with 13.6 inch front ventilated discs and 13 inch rear ventilated discs combined with big Brembo calipers meaning that Levante’s stopping power is top-notch. The EuroNCAP gave the Levante the best rating of five stars for occupant safety.

Comfort and Quality

The Levante was built to be a comfortable high rising version of a Ghibli and the interior of the Levante is as impressive as the exterior. Everything is upholstered with great feeling leather and built to a high standard, something usually not associated for Italian built car brands. Down the line Maserati’s designers didn’t rule out a 4 seater more luxurious version of the Levante, something to compete with the likes of the Range Rover and Bentley’s Bentayga.
