Please try following code. It might help you

When you instantiate a google maps object using: new google.maps.Map(domElement, options)

You can can use options to set (among other things) the zoom level.

The default zoom level can be set using { zoom: 14 } for example.

After you create you google maps object, you can change the zoom level using setZoom()

var myMap = new google.maps.Map(
{ zoom : 14 }

I think it depends on which map is currently set as base layer, because satellite and street map layers go deeper than terrain map.
