Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Levante is a midsize, two-row crossover with room for five on paper, although the longish center console renders the rear center seat almost moot.
The cargo area measures 20.5 cubic feet, or 57.4 with the rear seat folded. As these numbers suggest, the Levante is more about luxury and performance than the utility.
The Levante comes standard with automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors.
The $1,700 Driver Assistance Package for the GT and Modena includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, a surround-view camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and traffic sign recognition. These features are standard on the Modena S and Trofeo.
The standard infotainment system features an 8.4-inch touchscreen, eight speakers, navigation, two USB ports, satellite radio, and Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility.
A 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system is optional ($1,100) on the GT and Modena — and standard on subsequent trims. A 17-speaker Bowers and Wilkins system is available on all trims for $2,500.
The GT starts off the line with leather upholstery, heated 12-way power front seats with driver memory, a heated steering wheel, remote start, a panoramic sunroof, bi-xenon headlights, and a power liftgate. The GT rolls on an adaptive air suspension and 20-inch alloy wheels.
The $1,290 Comfort & Convenience Package adds heated rear seats, heated windshield washers, power-adjustable pedals, and soft-close doors. An extended perforated leather interior with ventilated front seats costs $3,500. Four-zone automatic climate control is a standalone $1,100 option.
The GT Sport Package ($3,790) livens up the exterior with black front and rear fascia trim, a rear spoiler, 21-inch machine-polished wheels, and gloss red brake calipers. Another choice is the GT Nerissimo Package ($1,500), which provides all-black exterior trim and black 20-inch wheels.
The Modena receives the 424-hp version of the twin-turbo V6 and black-trimmed fascias. The $3,090 Sportivo Package adds front sport seats, aluminum paddle shifters, adaptive headlights, sport pedals, and a suede headliner. Other option packages are shared with the GT, although the Nerissimo Package costs only $1,200 on the Modena.
The Modena S carries the 550-hp twin-turbo V8, plus upgraded instrumentation and standard ventilated front sport seats. The Nerissimo appearance items are also standard.
The high-performance Trofeo packs the 590-hp twin-turbo V8, along with larger brakes, carbon fiber body components, summer performance tires, and 21-inch wheels. The interior is trimmed in Pieno Fiore leather and high-gloss carbon fiber. At this level of luxury and performance, buyers have just two options to consider: the four-zone climate control and $450 carbon fiber paddle shifters.
The 2022 Maserati Levante Modena provides inspiring performance without crossing the line on price. The Modena S and Trofeo are best appreciated on a track, which isn't where most crossover buyers choose to spend their time.
