not sure but Levante sure sounds nicer.Names after a place and has to do with the history of the company. This all makes sense to me. Its nice that Maserati actually names its vehicles instead of throwing some letters and numbers together. I also think that Levante is a big step up from Kubang. Where did that name come from?
Good point.It doesn't seem like Maserati really has any old model names that they could have brought back for the Levante. They probably felt that they needed to find a new name for it.
The company has its headquarters in Modena, so they could have tried to play off that somehow. The original Maserati brothers were named Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ettore and Ernesto. I think most of those would make excellent model names. Any of these sound like a good alternative?
