Stonking acceleration from the twin-turbo V-8,

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.
