Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Maserati Levante is unranked in Luxury Midsize SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Maserati Levante's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 25 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Tremendous engine power
Dynamic handling
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Poor gas mileage
Some unimpressive cabin materials and subpar cargo capacity
Much more expensive than most class rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Updated driver display and infotainment screens for 2021.

PROS
Quick acceleration
Stable and lively handling
Not your typical German luxury SUV

CONS
Some downmarket buttons and switches
Short on cargo space

By: 
edmunds.com

The Levante receives Maserati's new infotainment interface for 2021, but unlike its sedan siblings—the Ghibli and Quattroporte—it sticks with an 8.4-inch display. The new software is based on Google's Android Automotive and offers a voice-activated virtual assistant, in-dash navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto; a wireless charging pad is also new this year.

Pros
Seductive exterior styling,
growling exhaust note,
quick acceleration times.

Cons
Second-class interior switches,
not as cargo-friendly as the competition,
expensive pricing.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Handles very well for its size
Impressively comfortable too
Loads of infotainment tech

Cons
Muted engine sounds
Auto gearbox isn't the best
Lots of expensive optional extras

By:

Audi has made no changes to the RS Q8 for 2021.

Pros
Mega-powerful V-8 engine,
nimble chassis,
styling is more restrained than the mechanically similar Lambo Urus.

Cons
Slower and more expensive than the RS6 Avant,
brake feel isn't particularly confidence inspiring,
not quite as poised as a Porsche.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The RS Q8 is unchanged for 2021.

Pros
Turbo V8 delivers devastating straight-line performance
Nimble, lively handling puts most sports cars to shame
Comfortable, well-trimmed interior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Limited interior storage
Less practical than the related Q7
