Product Overview

Maserati Levante is a large high-performance crossover in production from 2016. It is available with a range of inline-4, V6, and V8 engines that displaced 2.0 to 3.8 liters.
Remarkably, the V8 petrol engines (F154) are also used in a wide range of Ferraris, even though the Maserati versions are less powerful. The V6 petrol engines (F160) are based on the F154 V8 and found in many Quadrifoglio models.
Those who drive offroad, for work or leisure, need to think twice before pulling the trigger: the Maserati Levante is hardly the "offroader" that Maserati would like you to think.
Drivers who appreciate handling will be pleased to know that the Maserati Levante comes with double-wishbone at the front and multi-link at the rear. This is a bit unusual for AWD and less tunable than a multi-link front setup, but what you lose in performance you gain in durability.

Sentiment Score 59%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Maserati views itself as a maker of grand tourers rather than sports cars. The Levante has been designed as an SUV in this style, capable of both refined, luxurious comfort and fast, sporting performance. The 2019 updates, minor as they are, add a further level of refinement to the Levante package.

Pros
  • GranSport and GranLusso trims are more fun to drive
  • Improved infotainment
Cons
  • Lacklustre performance
  • Not as refined as rivals

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Levante Trofeo is just shaded by the Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo - but then what isn’t in this class? Yet while the Maserati is a touch softer and less controlled than the Cayenne, it’s more approachable, on the road at least. And then there's that glorious masterpiece of an engine, that packs a real punch and musicality - it's almost worth the price of entry alone. Sure, it's not cheap, but as a character alternative to the usual suspects it deserves a closer inspection.

  • Powerful V8 engine

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Maserati Levante is a fine-looking SUV, but it's a bit hit and miss on the road. It's a grand tourer - even a 2.1-tonne, SUV-shaped one - should be capable of covering ground in a reasonably rapid fashion. A Porsche Cayenne S - which, at £68,330, is only a shade cheaper than our GranSport test model - is a better car. But does it offer the style or flair of the Italian?

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior

Cons
  • Not as agile as rivals
  • Not as responsive as rivals

Sentiment Score 52%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Maserati Levante is a good first attempt from the Italian luxury car maker. It has all of the upmarket appeal that the company's saloons and sports cars have, while pricing is competitive within the luxury SUV sector. Its chassis impresses and comfort is reasonable, although it's not quite a class-leader in either regard. Quality issues inside also mean it can't compete with its German rivals, but it does offer good practicality.

Pros
  • Fastest V8-engined SUV
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Mediocre interior quality
  • Poor switchgear buttons

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
New V6 twin-turbo costs from £61,425 - roughly £3k more than the diesel. There's also a pair of V8s: a 542bhp GTS and the flagship Trofeo. UK bosses are keen to offer the GTS, but sales here are still unconfirmed. Electrification will feature in Maserati's future, too.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

Cons
  • Not as spacious as Porsche Cayenne
  • No seven-seat option

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
When Maserati unleashed the Ghibli-based Levante SUV in 2016, its global sales pretty much doubled overnight. By far the most popular version is the V6 turbodiesel, which is also the cheapest Levante you can buy. But despite the fact that – in the UK at least – the Levante Diesel continues to account for around 70 per cent of overall sales, something had to be done. Enter this new entry-level V6 petrol-powered model, known simply as The Levante. In basic trim it costs a seemingly competitive £61,425 and is capable of 156mph courtesy of its 345bhp twin-turbo V6 engine.

Pros
  • Powerful V6 engine

  • No paddle shifters in GranLusso

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The V8s are the best Levantes to date, with the Trofeo showing the sporty SUV in its best light. There are quality quibbles and ultimately it is not as satisfying to drive as the Cayenne, but it is a charming and desirable machine – if you can live with the price.

Pros
  • Powerful V8 engine

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
All Levantes have an eight-speed automatic transmission. It's superb and features four driving modes, something for every occasion. Comfort levels are good and so is cabin space, as long as you only want to transport four adults. The car's infotainment lags behind rivals', while the 580-litre boot is also small. The Levante is the first Maserati available with a factory-fitted tow bar.

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Maserati Levante Trofeo and GTS get a healthy dose of steroids. High-end materials and craftsmanship are here, but the cutting-edge infotainment and premium design are not. While the front of the Levante is sharp and aggressive, the rear has the same issue as the interior; it looks in need of some sharper strokes.

Pros
  • Powerful V8
  • Excellent infotainment

Cons
  • Not the most fun to drive
  • Interior is dated

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Only model coming to the UK is a 3.0-litre diesel whose 6.9sec 0-62mph performance isn't exactly dog slow, but certainly at the outer limit of what you might expect from a Maserati. It manages almost 40mpg on the combined cycle, rides so much better than the jiggly Ghibli and the handling is surprisingly fun. But if you're a sheep farmer in the Highlands you're better off sticking to your Defender - the optional silk interior doesn't look very easy to clean.

Pros
  • Fantastic off-road performance
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Not as powerful as the Ghibli
  • No hybrid option

Reviewers from carwow have found the following***:
Despite its bulk, the Levante has sold in greater numbers than any other Maserati since its introduction in 2016. Range Rover Sport and Porsche Cayenne Coupe both come with style, luxury and powerful engines. The Levante is great for a couple of adults in the front and the driver gets loads of electric seat and wheel adjustment, but knee room in the back is nothing more than average.

The 2019 Maserati Levante starts at $76,980 for the base, all-wheel-drive model. Another 10 grand gets you 80 extra ponies, stepping up to the $87,980, 424-hp Levante S. The Levante's cabin features some FCA parts bin bits, but higher quality materials and bespoke details keep it feeling luxurious.

The Levante carries a premium price tag, yet its cabin is full of mass-market Fiat-Chrysler controls. Creaky climate controls and wobbly trim on the center console further cheapen the experience. The Maserati Touch Control Plus (MTC+) system is basically FCA Uconnect by another name.

The Levante feels well made from quality materials. It's a good size – provided you're not viewing it as a potential rival to an Audi Q7 or Land Rover Discovery. The Levante isn't cheap but even the flagship Levante S at £72,525 doesn't look too toppy when a 440bhp Cayenne S is £68,330.

Pros
  • Stylish looks
