The Italian luxury car manufacturer, Maserati, is known for their low-volume sports car and lower volume race cars. It was an independent concern by its current parenting company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This year, the company has their first foray in the rising world of SUVs with their Maserati Levante S Q4.

A test was conducted with the Maserati car to measure its capabilities. As it was on track, the Maserati Lavante S Q4's transmission mode was set to sports and came up with howling 4.9 seconds from 0-60 and is on the way to a 13.5-second quarter mile under 102 mph. The Levante was said to strain a racing scale at 4,979 pounds, which is a pretty remarkable performance.

The interior of the car has boasts a lot of leather and wood. It is also equipped with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Siri, apple CarPlay, and a standard android auto. Levante was able to manage in transcending its Chrysler/Fiat sourced switching gear with its high-end materials from an inspiring dashboard design and a large list of customization options.

Levante is not just backed with an impressively designed exterior like an automotive Monica Belluci but also offers a zesty Italian driving performance. It comes with a two twin turbo V-6 that offers 345 hp and the other with a 424 hp. The Quattroporte derived body structure utilizes adaptive suspension dampers in order to increase its athletic lineage without losing a comfort on a rough pavement. The Maserati Levante S Q4 has a compliant on-road and off-road that makes it a quite competitive one.

The model is a serious entry from Maserati this year that will take a lot of attention and sales from today's luxury sport utility dahlings. Italian ideas of luxury crossover are said to be too seductive to ignore with its reasonable performance. This just means that the company has a chance in a close competition against the mainstream X5, Range Rover variants, and GLE-Class.
