It’s the age of the upscale SUV, a category now rife with offerings from the most exclusive car builders in the world. Maserati’s Levante S reaches new heights in comfort and performance for buyers looking for plenty of space to go with their Italian automotive appetites. Under this larger body is essentially a Maserati Ghibli, although there are some obvious additions to give the SUV that perception of off-road capability. Potential adventuring sans tarmac is enabled by an air-ride suspension that can raise or lower the body almost three and a half inches, along with larger wheels. This is the first late-model full-size SUV to come out of Italy, and the Italian flair defines it inside and out.
