The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Maserati Levante sets a tone that other ultra-luxury automakers will soon follow: Look great, stand tall, go fast. In that order. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class pared down its powertrains to gas only or a plug-in hybrid, although it still has plenty of stops in between for luxury buyers.
