2017 Maserati Levante Engine

7.6/10

The Levante's sportier side surfaces once the engine is fired with its racy exhaust note. Just find an open road and sink the accelerator....Equally impressive is the way the Levante handles twisty roads. You can drive it around turns with the confidence of something far smaller. The result is a genuinely sporty drive for what is ultimately a tall and bulky luxury crossover. -edmunds
