We have partnered up with Graypaul Nottingham Maserati on several occasions now, bringing you the powerful Maserati Levante Trofeo when it launched, including a test drive and shoot with a stunning red Maserati on a country estate here in Nottinghamshire, but we had yet to drive the Levante.
This all changed when Made were invited to Whatton House to test drive the latest Levante Hybrid in stunning surroundings. The first opportunity to experience this vehicle, and we were not disappointed.
The car itself looks stunning, however beyond that we wanted to look at the driving experience, and once we were behind the wheel, driving this Levante Hybrid confirms that this brand hits the mark.
The car itself being a combination of Hybrid technology and a powerful petrol engine taken from the Ghibli platform, gives a driving experience you would find hard to rival in a sports utility segment, and thats where we feel this Levante fits, it really does have a place of its own on the road.
Choosing a Levante is in fact making a statement about the type of driver you are, you are not conforming or settling in with fellow SUV drivers but choosing a driving experience to satisfy your thirst for quality and Italian style.
On our short drive we experienced the explosive power of this car, the luxury and comfort it offers and we did indeed turn a few heads, especially with that unmistakable Maserti roar when decorum goes out of the window, the overrun kicks in and pops satisfyingly behind you. There is certainly a feel good factor driving this car.
We hope to bring you a more in-depth review of this car but this first experience left us wanting more.
