I was flipping through my mail, and came across an invitation from Maserati to unveil the release of their new lineup ….. Levante: The Maserati of SUVs. The Maserati Levante model is a mid-size luxury SUV. Immediately at looking at the SUV’s photos, I had mixed feelings. I’m not sold on a luxury, performance vehicle like Maserati releasing an SUV that at first glance looks like an Infiniti QX70 to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a glamorous soccer-mom car… which is exactly why when I purchased my Maserati Quattroporte – a true luxury sedan that will outperform nearly any car on the road!
About the Levante, Maserati says on their website:
LEVANTE: A WIND THAT RISES FROM THE EAST AND IS DESTINED TO INSPIRE
Levante is a warm, Mediterranean wind that can change from gentle to gale force strength in an instant. Designed to be unique and built to be heard, Maserati Levante is destined to make an unforgettable impression offering the ultimate combination of on-road performance and off-road capabilities to give you the freedom to pursue your aspirations.

Being that I have a Mediterranean heritage, I felt guilty that I did not immediately gravitate towards the new lineup. I won’t be able to judge until I see the Levante SUV in person though, so maybe when I’m seated behind the wheel of this Maserati SUV, my ancestral roots will kick in and I’ll change my mind.
You can see the Levante’s commercial here.
Here are some pics of the Levante from the different angles:
In the meantime, I am a Rugged Glam Maserati Girl who will continue to love on my Maserati Quattroporte. I am truly in LOVE with her and picked her over the rest of the lineup because I pictured that one day, when I start a family, I’ll place a baby seat in the roomy back seat.
So in conclusion, I’m not entirely sure why Maserati decided to go down this road, when the Quattroporte met all the requirements of a good family vehicle, and much much more! However, I’ll hold off on judging until after the unveiling event and see it for myself.
Thanks for stopping by! Please help me grow my blog by sharing/liking, etc. and please come back and visit again soon! I’ll be posting regularly.
Keep in touch Rugged Glam-ers!
