It's the new entry-level Maserati Levante and it's almost $15,000 less than the next rung up the ladder. It's still got a twin-turbo V6 and it still has loads of kit. So, what's not to like?

Pros
It's still got a big presence
It goes well and sounds even better
Ride comfort is excellent with air suspension
Sporty handling with solid composure
Very comfortable cockpit and all the latest features including Apple CarPlay
General refinement
ZF eight-speed gearbox is a big plus

Cons
Not as sharp as the Porsche Cayenne
Generic rear styling
Still 10 grand more than the Porsche
