Maserati Levante vs. The Competition

See How the Maserati Levante Stacks Up Comared To The Competition

Shopping for a mid-sized luxury crossover to add to your lifestyle? If so, you've probably come across top players in this segment, such as the BMW X5, the Range Rover Velar, and the Maserati Levante. However, as every good car shopper knows, it's vital to do some research before biting the bullet on your final choice. So, what makes the Maserati Levante stand out from its competitors? Learn all you need to know today with your local Boston Motors Maserati experts, and then take the endlessly impressive Maserati Levante for a spin around the block.

Maserati Levante vs. BMW X5

Both of these models are mid-sized, offer spacious seating for five passengers, and stand at a similar length, wheelbase size, and width. However, with one look, you'll see which is the more luxurious of the two. Explore key differences in performance, styling, and interior comfort.

Performance: When it comes to power and capability, the 2021 Maserati Levante knocks it out of the park with a standard twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 345-horsepower and up to 424-horsepower if you opt for the S trim level. The BMW X5 is equipped with a turbocharged I6 engine that produces 335-horsepower. That may not seem like that big of a difference, but the Maserati SUV takes things up a notch with an available twin-turbocharged V8 that produces up to 590-horsepower, a number the BMW can't come close to.

Styling: There are clear differences in styling between these two models, and the benefits of the Maserati Levante extend beyond just personal taste. Enjoy a distinctive exterior with beautiful sweeping sports lines, a large grille, and an aggressively sloped roofline. The exterior of the BMW X5 looks like the rest of the BMW lineup.

Interior Comfort:Inside, a fantastic mixture of classic analog features, well-integrated technology, and a full-leather interior grace the 2021 Maserati Levante. Choose between red and brows leathers, a leather dashboard, and ultra-luxury styling in general with a perfect position for the driver's seat. The BMW X5 sticks to its typical colors without emphasizing styling that any luxury car driver would be hoping for.

Maserati Levante vs. Range Rover Velar

In the top-tier luxury segment sits brands like Maserati and Range Rover, and the two that go most head-to-head in terms of similar size are the Levante and the Range Rover Velar. However, the Maserati Levante boasts some serious benefits of the Range Rover regarding customization options, performance ability, and rear cargo area. Explore here:

Trim Level Options: The Maserati Levante is available with six distinct trim levels spanning from the beautiful Base to the performance-oriented Trofeo. Meanwhile, the Range Rover Velar only offers half of that. Between its three trim levels, you'll find large price jumps and less room to customize your model to your specific needs.

Performance: Once again, the Maserati Levante SUV's performance simply can't be beaten. Its standard 345-horsepower tops the Range Rover model's 335-horsepower. Again, the Maserati can push up to 590-horsepower with its V8 configuration-which is not an option for the Range Rover.

Cargo Space: It's important to note how much space you have in the rear with all seats upright-after all, this is how you likely drive the most often. The Maserati offers 20.5-cubic-feet, while the Range Rover Velar only offers 19.7-cubic-feet.

Maserati Levante vs. Porsche Cayenne

Mid-sized luxury SUVs offer a unique way to take your next family trip. Both the Maserati Levante and Porsche Cayenne are exceptional options with seating for up to five passengers and numerous amenities to explore. With our in-depth look, you'll see why the Maserati Levante is the more luxurious choice for you!


When it comes to base engine performance, the Levante leaves the Cayenne in the dust. The Maserati luxury SUV comes equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, delivering 345 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. In comparison, the Porsche SUV manages just 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet from its 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. The Maserati manages even more power under the hood with the Levante S trim - upgrading to the next Cayenne trim sees no change in the engine performance.

Exterior Design

There's nothing that gets your heart pumping quite like the look and style of the new Maserati Levante. Its distinctive curves and sweeping sports lines enjoy the jealousy of other drivers, and features like a large grille and aggressively sloped roofline are sure to turn heads as you drive by. The Maserati Levante also enjoys standard features like a panoramic sunroof. The Porsche Cayenne is a stunner, but it lacks the flair and stylistic choices that make the Levante desirable. The Cayenne SUV only offers its panoramic sunroof optional, requiring you to pay a bit more to enjoy it.

Infotainment Features

Both luxury SUVs offer numerous technological advancements that ensure you enjoy every minute behind the wheel. The Maserati Levante comes standard with an 8.4-inch touchscreen, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ smartphone integration. While the Cayenne enjoys a similar arrangement, including a larger touchscreen, it lacks Android Auto™ connectivity capability, leaving Android users to enjoy a less seamless connection to their vehicle.
