If standard offer and the look of the Maserati Levante is not enough for you, then we recommend trying its GTS version. The vehicle is already available in S trim. However, the 2018 Maserati Levante GTS could add 100 or more horses to the output. That would put extra energy on wheels, making the crossover faster and quicker.
Nevertheless, engineers in Maserati will have to control that power. So, the new drive system is on the way. That includes suspensions and already praised brakes. With them the company will raise the bar of safety level, making Maserati Levante GTS not only the sports vehicle but also a family car. But, basically, this is a performance-tuned model with a lot of changes compared to its base unit.

A box full of luxury features. In short, that will be the interior of the 2018 Maserati Levante GTS. The premium crossover will pack every hi-tech feature and luxurious material into its cabin. However, it is up to designers to assemble it not to look too posh. A three-spoke steering wheel will hold control buttons for most of the infotainment features. Also, wooden and aluminum details on upholstery and dashboard will definitely make 2018 Maserati Levante GTS elegant.
