The new Maserati Levante actually reminds me of a tailored suit from the ateliers of Ermenegildo Zegna.
Having in mind that for the inside of this car 12 meters of specially emboldened silk is used on the visual enlivener of the seats, door inlays and the head-lining. Have you ever heard of a car inlay design made out of silk?
Maserati, known for their understated Italian design and elegance makes the driver cabin for you to feel as in a cocoon using only best materials like leather, stitching of natural yarn and paddle shifters for the automatic gearbox and carbon fibre trim details.
Thinking of Maserati, a 4×4 might not come directly to your mind, but when picking a car for a weekend skiing get-away the Levante makes sense. Enough space to comfortably getting your ski stored in the back or listening to your favourite music when getting off the slopes on the cars sound system by Bowers & Wilkins are only a few features that benefits this SUV.
Besides the off-road mode there is a special I.C.E. mode for going up best on a mountain corniche or maybe for a more sportive version you might like to press the SPORT mode which is fun when you want to hide your diesel. The dashboard has a built-in safe box and many hideaways features for your belongings.
We had great fun test driving this car in the Austrian Alps. We think it is a perfect choice for making more road trips this spring as traveling short or long is extremely comfortable with a car made with only the best materials, like silk by the house of Zegna.
PERFORMANCE: 143mph top speed, 0-62 mph in 6.9 seconds. PRICE: Upon request
