Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

It's the new entry-level Maserati Levante and it's almost $15,000 less than the next rung up the ladder. It's still got a twin-turbo V6 and it still has loads of kit. So, what's not to like?

Pros
It's still got a big presence
It goes well and sounds even better
Ride comfort is excellent with air suspension
Sporty handling with solid composure
Very comfortable cockpit and all the latest features including Apple CarPlay
General refinement
ZF eight-speed gearbox is a big plus

Cons
Not as sharp as the Porsche Cayenne
Generic rear styling
Still 10 grand more than the Porsche
