2017 Maserati Levante Greenville SC
Many shoppers rely on stellar reputations to help sort through which models are the very best, but what about when something new hits the market? For those who have been waiting for a luxury SUV that hits all the right notes, the 2017 Maserati Levante is a new choice for Greenville SC shoppers to enjoy. This model may be a fresh pick, but it’s already gathering attention for its agile handing and tough exterior.
What are people saying about this new model? Though it’s in its first model year, the 2017 Maserati Levante is getting high praise for its unique design, which allows the model to truly look like a crossover. The compact SUV offers plenty of space, but the hatchback is sloped to complement the roofline, allowing for an attractive side profile that looks sporty, while offering crossover convenience.
The 2017 Maserati Levante starts off with a 345-horsepower V6 engine, because why should a model that looks this tough not live up to its performance expectations? A 424-horsepower options is available in the S trim for an impressive 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 5 seconds.
The base Levante trim comes with high-end features that include xenon headlights, adaptive air suspension, a power liftgate, a rearview camera, keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, Bluetooth, an 8.4-inch infotainment system and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
In many ways, the Levante looks similar to the popular Quattroporte, and why shouldn’t Maserati borrow from the body structure of one of its most popular models? What you’ll notice is that the stance is a little wider, the front end a bit more rugged, but the overall aesthetic exudes luxury.
