Honda E Advance 2020 UK review

  Honda E Advance 2020 UK review Short-range urban runabout is filled with interesting tech; too impressive to drive out of town for its own goodHonda certainly feels so: it points out that it could simply have strapped a battery under the recently launched front wheel-drive Jazz hybrid (longer and a bit more spacious in the back), but it instead chose to give the E a new platform to give it dynamically pure rear-wheel drive, plus a 50:50 weight distribution and MacPherson strut-type independent suspension at either end. The move away from front-wheel drive also allows the steered wheels to turn very tightly, which yields the taxi-beating turning circle of 8.6 metres between kerbs.

Snow Hooning the Maserati Levante and Ghibli. 2020 Maserati Lineup Gets Cheaper and More Stylish. Maserati Levante Now Roars the Way At first glance, the inside of the Levante appears rich and well-appointed, especially in our Levante S test vehicle, which featured the full-leather treatment

The 2020 Maserati Levante boasts powerful engine options and sharp handling, but it falters in interior quality and cargo space compared to class rivals. The 2020 Levante does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn't been fully crash tested and does not have a reliability rating.

Next year, Ferrari will launch the most controversial car in its 81-year history. The Purosangue (‘Thoroughbred’ in English) is a super-SUV to rival the Aston Martin DBX and Lamborghini Urus. Enzo wouldn’t have approved, but the shareholders surely will.

Can’t wait that long? The 430hp Maserati Levante S is the closest you’ll get to an SUV powered by prancing horses. Its ‘F160’ V6 engine is based on the F154 V8 from the Ferrari 488. Does it retain some Maranello magic?

This is the second rung on the Levante ladder, which clambers up from the 350hp base model to the 580hp V8-engined Trofeo. At £83,435, it squares up to the Range Rover Sport and Porsche Cayenne, plus more exalted versions of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Jaguar F-Pace.

Showing its teeth

Exclusivity is a big part of the Levante’s appeal, as is how it looks. That clenched-teeth grille makes a bold statement without being too gauche (take note, BMW), while its profile is coupe-like without seeming contrived (yep, BMW again). Only the rather generic rear-end styling lets it down.

Top tip: go for GranSport rather than GranLusso spec (seen here) to best accentuate the sculpted sides and muscular haunches.

Forgetting Ferrari for a moment, the trident badge has an allure all its own – recently bolstered by the new MC20 supercar.

Maseratis of the past have been unorthodox and flawed, but – with the notable exception of the Ghibli diesel – they have never been dull. Nor is the Levante S.

Gallery: True MPG: most and least efficient cars revealed (What Car?)

a yellow and black truck sitting on top of a building: New petrol, diesel and hybrid cars are on average 5.4% less efficient in real-world conditions than the official WLTP figures suggest, What Car? has found.  We put 56 popular models through our independent True MPG test, with the worst performers around 20% down on their official figures, and the best almost 16% up.  WLTP is, however, a lot more accurate than the old NEDC system, which it replaced in September 2018; a previous sample of 159 vehicles type approved to NEDC standards showed an average discrepancy of 20.2% between True MPG and the official results, with the worst performers as much as 40% less efficient than advertised.  To ensure accuracy and repeatability, our True MPG tests are conducted in strictly controlled laboratory conditions, but they are based on a real route that takes in town, rural and motorway driving.  As a result, they reflect what's achievable if you’re driving gently and sticking to speed limits but aren’t resorting to any unrealistically slow acceleration or special 'hypermiling' techniques.  Which of the latest models were farthest away from their official figures, though, and which over-achieved? Let's take a look, starting with the 10 biggest under-performers...

How could it be with this engine? The 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 is glorious: zingy and athletic in the mid-range, then exuberant and visceral as the revs rise. Driving all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox, it propels the portly 2,109kg Levante to 62mph in 5.2 seconds – on par with a Porsche Cayenne S.

Its vocal repertoire ranges from subtle snarl to piercing howl, punctuated by crackles from the four tailpipes.

All Levantes ride on air suspension, which strikes a decent balance between comfort and cornering composure. You can also raise the car’s height for off-roading or hunker it down for high speeds. Overall, the Maserati is softer and less tenacious than a Cayenne, but still fluid and enjoyable to drive. Its steering is well weighted and the brakes feel powerful.

Only its sheer size, and the prospect of fuel economy in the high teens (the official figure is 22.1mpg) may temper your enthusiasm.

Being an SUV, of course, you can bring the family along, although the Levante is best suited to four (the middle rear passenger must perch on a hump) and its tapered tailgate cuts sharply into boot space. Another top tip: leave the labrador at home.

An SUV with soul

Frankly, the Levante is too plush for dog duties anyway. Rich leather swathes the doors and dashboard, the three-spoke steering wheel looks great and the metal gearshift paddles are deliciously tactile.

Sadly, the abundance of hard plastic switchgear doesn’t befit a luxury car, while the touchscreen infotainment system is clunky. At least Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, so you can simply plug in your phone.

Like many charismatic Italian cars, then, the Levante is far from perfect. It’s thirsty, not particularly practical and perceived quality could be better. Yet its glamorous badge and glorious engine offer an irrational, emotional sucker-punch that no German rival – nor indeed the Range Rover Sport – can match.

It takes a lot to make an SUV feel exotic, but a Ferrari engine does just that. Maybe we shouldn’t be so worried about the Purosangue after all.
