Interior

While the Levante is striking on the outside, the interior is a little muted in comparison. There's no denying the quality. It feels superbly finished and well put together plus there are various wood trims and leather finishes available so you can personalise your Levante as much as you'd like.

When it comes to the cabin layout and controls, it's fairly standard Maserati fare. So the design is neat albeit predictable and while everything is easy to work, there's nothing special that makes it stand out. It lacks the modernity of an Audi Q7 - but thanks to the excellent touchscreen system, there are less buttons than on the Porsche Cayenne.

That touchscreen controls all the main functions although there are still buttons for the air conditioning and a proper dial to turn the radio up and down. In fact, it is one of the best 'infotainment' systems (yes we hate that word) around with a responsive screen and a crisp, high-res display.

You'd expect some of the buttons and controls to be nicer on a car at this price - the large indicator/wiper stalk looks distinctly old hat, but those are only small gripes in what is a very high quality cabin. Crucially, it gets the basics right, with an excellent driving position that lets you see the end of the bonnet, handy as the Levante has a big turning circle. 

What the Levante also has is space. And lots of it. There's plenty of legroom in the back along with good hat space. This is where the Levante trumps the Ghibli - it's far more spacious throughout.

The boot is big, too, with 580 litres of carrying space. In the real world this means several big suitcases, golf clubs and an electric trolley with no issues. You can even stow a pushchair with room to spare. That said, a BMW X5 has more boot space as does a Jaguar F-Pace.
