Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Maserati Levante ranked #3 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Maserati Levante has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 17 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Swift acceleration
Incredible agility
Smooth ride

Cons
Poor gas mileage
Less cargo space than nearly every rival
Lower-rent cabin materials than competitors

By: 
usnews.com

After its introduction last year, the Levante gains a few updates for 2018. New standard features include blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and remote engine start, while electric power steering replaces the hydraulic setup from last year.

PROS
Design differentiates it from the sea of look-alike crossovers
Turbocharged V6 engine provides quick acceleration
Suspension enhances ride comfort and handling around turns
Highly customizable interior

CONS
Comes up short on storage space
Fuel economy lags that of other luxury SUVs
Some downmarket buttons and switches

By:

The ultimate Audi crossover is convincingly sporty and properly useful.

Pros
Suave and tech-savvy cabin,
sporty and comfy ride,
more useful than Audi sedans.

Cons
Pricier than the more pragmatic Q7,
distracting touchscreens,
less fun to drive than Audi sedans.

The Audi Q8 is a luxurious, comfortable SUV but it isn't as sporty as its looks suggest, nor is it as practical as a Q7.

Pros
Imposing looks
Indulgent interior
Advanced technology

Cons
Numb handling
Limited versatility
Unproven ride comfort

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

Audi's Q7 is undoubtedly a practical three-row SUV, but maybe you find it to be a bit plain Jane when compared against sleeker rivals such as the Land Rover Range Rover or Porsche Cayenne.

Pros
Comes well-equipped with many standard features
Comfortable ride and seats for all passengers
High-quality cabin
Front and rear seats offer all-day comfort

Cons
Less practical than the related Q7
New infotainment system can be distracting to use
Throttle response is too slow in the default driving mode
Limited interior storage space
