The Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive System

The Maserati Levante offers the available Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system that will empower you to confidently master poor roads and inclement weather. This system employs variable torque controls to effortlessly transmit engine power to your front wheels whenever the system detects you need it. The Q4 Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system uses several sensors that continuously calculate braking action, speed, power output, steering angle, wheel speed, and traction. When you’re driving in normal conditions, the sensors will instruct for 100% of the power to be channeled to the rear wheels. However, if you’re driving in snow, gravel, water, or similar terrain; the system will detect the loss of traction and redirect torque to your front wheels for improved grip. Best of all, this redistribution of torque takes a mere 150 milliseconds — before you can blink an eye.
