The Maserati Levante's Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System

All-wheel drive remains an integral aspect of the Maserati Levante's performance - offering drivers confidence in inclement weather and composure while surging around corners or tackling rough terrain. While comparable midsize crossover SUV models opt for either a two-wheel drive configuration, a heavier four-wheel drive assembly, or a poorly optimized all-wheel drive system, the Maserati Levante comes equipped with the Q4 intelligent all-wheel drive system for unparalleled composure and performance capabilities. Amended with a five-way active air suspension for both improved comfort and off-road capabilities, the Maserati Levante spares no expense in maximizing both luxury and capability.

All-Wheel Drive vs. Four-Wheel Drive

For superior on-road composure and off-road performance, powering all four wheels of a vehicle is crucial. While strictly off-road vehicles frequently employ a four-wheel drive system, due to the significantly heavier weight of the system and inability to adequately perform at higher speeds, a part-time four-wheel drive system is not a viable drive type for versatile performance vehicles such as the Levante. All-wheel drive is lighter, full-time and more efficient, resulting in optimized handling manners without compromising capability - ideal for Maserati models. Additionally, an intelligent all-wheel drive system can switch between diverting power from all wheels to just the rear two to optimize fuel efficiency and performance when not cornering or in the midst of inclement weather conditions - making the Maserati Q4 intelligent all-wheel drive system advanced and ideal for intrepid drivers seeking optimal performance.

On-Road Agility, Off-Road Capability

Offering four driver-selectable drive modes, the Maserati Levante effortlessly tunes its drivetrain to suit your environment and performance requirements. Equipped with a limited-slip differential for improved on and off-road performance (minimizing wheel traction loss sometimes experienced with open differentials) and a multi-plate clutch as opposed to a center differential for superior performance and better balance, the Q4 intelligent all-wheel drive system found within the Maserati Levante adapts to driving conditions, diverting power between all four wheels as needed to deliver ideal performance in the blink of an eye.
