We got along to the Australian launch of that new version of the inaugural Maserati SUV and you can check out that review here.
Also coming to the 2018 Maserati Levante is a new electric steering system.
Replacing the previous mechanical power steering, Maserati say going electric helps take strain off the engine and that means better fuel economy and performance.
The electric power steering system is also lighter.
There’s also new driver aids, including lane keep assist, auto dipping headlights, active blind-spot assist and highway assist.
That last feature helps keep you within your lane at highway speeds.
Maserati quick to point out too that most of theses aids can be switched off should you not require them, and if you do switch them off they stay off until you go into the settings and turn them back on.
And another handy new feature that Levante boasts is traffic sign recognition.
The system scans road signs and then displays that speed in the driver info screen – if you’re breaking the limit it will flash at you.
Lastly, Maserati has also introduced new model variants – GranSport and GranLusso, these allow Levante buyers to choose the look and feel of their new luxury SUV that better suits their taste.
For example, GranSport gets black exterior highlights and sportier seats, the GranLusso boast chrome highlights on the body and piano black interior highlights in the cabin.
The 2018 Maserati Levante S range is priced from $139,990.
