The wind that bears its name blows across the Mediterranean and can change from benign calm to gale force in an instant. The Maserati SUV has a similar nature, although its powerful forces always remain under perfect control. The Levante SUV embodies the enduring, intrepid and endlessly progressive spirit of Maserati – and it’s part of a story that dates back over 100 years. Maserati has a history of naming its cars after the world’s most famous winds. It started in 1963 with the legendary Mistral. Then came the Ghibli, the Bora and the Khamsin. And now the Levante joins the Maserati hall of fame.

At the front, the aggressively sculpted front grille with its chromed bars is more imposing than ever, given the elevated SUV proportions. At the same time, it retains the timeless grace of Maserati, with the noble Trident of Neptune leading the way forward. At each side, the narrowed, forward-focus of the two-part headlights also catches the eye. These lead the gaze across the muscular, arching front wings to the iconic triple air vents and upper character lines. The Saetta logo in the steeply tapered, coupé-like rear section is another unmistakable Maserati styling signature.
