Interior & comfort Rating

4.0 out of 5

Standard leather seats, adjustable suspension and excellent noise suppression (despite the use of frameless windows) mean the interior of the Maserati Levante is a calm, quiet and comfortable environment when you’re on the move. This serenity is only absent when you start the car, as the powerful engines sound noisy compared to those in its German rivals.

Maserati Levante dashboard

The signature Maserati analogue clock is present and correct on the Levante’s dashboard, but there are also more hi-tech touches, such as an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment interface and rotary control knob. The system itself is rather disappointing next to the best and most cutting-edge on the market, feeling out of place in a car that costs as much as the Levante, and the interior lags behind those of the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90 when it comes to quality and design.

Equipment

As standard, all Levantes have leather upholstery, the aforementioned touchscreen infotainment interface, an eight-speaker stereo system, cruise control, hill-descent control, dual-zone climate control, rain-sensing windscreen wipers and keyless entry.

A 2017 update streamlined the Levante’s trim levels, and there are now three on the standard car - a base model plus GranLusso and GranSport for £9,000 extra. GranLusso brings 19-inch alloys, wood trim and leather seats, while GranSport sees the fitment of 20-inch alloy wheels, red brake callipers and gloss-black garnish to the outside. Inside, GranSport brings a sports steering wheel, paddle shifters for the automatic gearbox and carbon fibre trim details. The GTS and Trofeo models are basically standalone trim levels.

Options

The Levante offers a vast range of options and extensive scope for customisation, particularly inside. Two-tone leather upholstery and 28 different interior trim colours can be specified, as well as silver or gloss-black roof rails and the above-mentioned larger alloy wheels. For added comfort, you can have 12-way power adjustment on the driver’s seat.

Other optional upgrades include Harmon Kardon and Bowers & Wilkins stereos, electronic adjustment for the steering column, heated rear seats and an Alcantara suede-fabric headliner.
