SEE­ING the suc­cess of Porsche and Bent­ley SUVS has spurred other pres­tige mak­ers to join the fray, and the Maserati Le­vante is one of the sportier ar­rivals.

Touches like the frame­less doors and hand-made in­te­rior stick to Maserati tra­di­tion, while un­der the skin is a punchy 3.0-litre diesel and run­ning gear that’s bi­ased to­wards on-road per­for­mance. If the diesel doesn’t float your boat, a more po­tent petrol V6 Le­vante S is com­ing.

Price: £56,250 Our pick: 3.0 V6 Diesel (£56,250) En­gine: 3.0-litre V6 diesel, 275bhp Trans­mis­sion: 8-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 142mph Econ­omy: 39.2mpg CO2: 189g/km
