Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ettore, and Ernesto. They were the Maserati brothers, and they started their car company way back in 1914. The Italian automaker began building winning race cars in the 1920s, and has enjoyed an image and reputation for building some of the fastest and most beautiful cars ever since. Now part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which also owns Fiat, Dodge, Ram, Jeep, Alfa Romeo, and Chrysler, Maserati created its first SUV, the Levante, in 2017.
Sexy, luxurious, family-friendly, and fast, the 2020 Maserati Levante remains one of finest SUVs to come out of Italy, a list that also includes the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the Lamborghini Urus. Levante is a Spanish word that translates to “I raised,” and the five-passenger mid-size crossover offers a unique combination of style, size, luxury, and high performance, including a twin-turbo V8 developed by Ferrari. It competes with the BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and Range Rover Sport.
