The Levante certainly looks distinctive. The edgy headlights and taillights make a big visual impact and we especially like how the daytime running lights work with the chrome grille surround to form a line that almost runs the width of the SUV.
From the side, you'll notice the concave line over the wheel arches, emphasizing the supercar-like hips from certain angles. The rear is finished off with quad tailpipes, so you know it means business. GT models are equipped with 20-inch Efesto Platinum wheels as standard. Oddly, for such an expensive car, the Levante doesn't have LED lights as standard, with the GT and Modena models relying on bi-xenon headlights and only the Modena S getting LEDs as standard. The GT and Modena get chrome exterior accents such as the window surrounds, door handles, and fender vents. The Modena gets black side badging and the Modena S gets all-black treatment for the exterior styling elements, including the wheels, grille, window surrounds, side badging, mirrors, brake calipers, and grille. The F Tributo comes with model-specific badging on the fenders, 21-inch wheels with yellow embellishments, and yellow brake calipers. A dual-pane sunroof is standard on all models.
Dimensions for the 2022 Maserati Levante are well within the segment standards. It has a total length of 197 inches (197.6 inches on Levante Modena S), and a width of 77.5 inches without the mirrors - and 85 inches with them. The wheelbase is 118.3 inches. It's convincingly larger than the other Italian performance SUV in the Stellantis lineup, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The Levante is also longer than the Porsche Cayenne (194 inches), but the German car is an inch longer in the wheelbase. An entry-level Levante weighs 4,650 pounds, while the top-spec twin-turbo V8 weighs 5,070 lbs.

The base color palette consists of only one no-cost option this year - Bianco (white) - with Nero (black) having been dropped. From there, you get four metallic options, each retailing for $1,200. These options are Nero Ribelle, Grigio Maratea, Grigio, Rame, and Blu Emozione - with last year's Blue Passione discontinued. Bianco Alpi and Blu Nobile retail for $2,700.
All of the colors are available on all models, except for the F Tributo trim, which is available only in Rosso (red) or Azzurro Tributo (blue). For more customization, you need to add more striking wheels and painted brake calipers. Maserati charges an additional $500 to paint the calipers blue, red, or black, with yellow also added to the list this year - yellow calipers are standard fare on F Tributo models. GT models come with unpainted silver brake calipers, while black (with white Maserati script) is standard on the Modena and Modena S.
