The tvc for the Maserati Levante is deeply cinematic, in the Olivier Francois/FCA signature flavour (for this segment): Great reviews, even from the british motoring press, traditionally very very pro-German luxe car brand: AutoExpress http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/maserati/levante/94812/new-maserati-levante-2016-review Autocar http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-review/maserati/levante/first-drives/2016-maserati-levante-review TopGear http://www.topgear.com/car-reviews/levante/first-drive This Maserati seems to be a comprehensive, and true to brand history and identity and promise, winner design, quality AND engineering-wise, hopefully for FCA also in the marketplace in China and the USA and not just in Europe and the Middle East where it is almost-bound to do well, especially since it is not as-premium-above-premium priced as Maserati-s have always been. The Italian reviews are of course gushing, but the german ones seem to be very praiseful too. Harald Wester, FCA's chief technology officer, ironically a German veteran automotive engineer, is the brand-in-charge of both Maserati and the new Alfa Romeo, those everso Italian and storied/legandary marques. IF, as sure appears to be the case, the Alfa Giulia is as accomplished technologically as the Maserati Levante (which is a clear class-best in most respects): FCA will be hitting the German luxe firms in Europe+China+Middle East, at least, hard indeed. Like Land/Range Rover but unlike the so-far irrelevant and failed Jaguar attempt to do so (both owned by Tata, of course.) It remains to be seen whether that success can also be delivered in the massively central usa luxe market, where most new Alfa dealers will also be the current Maserati ones. Maserati in the usa has grown hugely since the new models were launched, but the lack of an SUV had stymied their sales growth there, unlike in europe. The Levante should do the trick, even better? Perhaps, even the Alfa Giulia, much cheaper, but no less stylish and sporty in the Alfa tradition?
