We Recommend

We believe that the Modena trim makes more sense as it will be equipped with a more powerful V-6 engine and offer many necessary features that the GT misses on. It will also add many sporty elements to match the higher performance like bigger 20-inch alloy wheels and sports bumpers with black piano inserts. The Modena trim can also be upgraded with some more optional packages like driver assistance package, Sportivo package, comfort and convenience package, Nerissimo Modena package etc to make it more desirable. Some of the standout features of the optional packages are: 

  • Driver Assistance Package: It will include advanced brake assist, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, surround-view camera, etc 
  • Comfort and Convenience Package: It will include power-adjustable foot pedals, heated rear seats, heated windshield washer nozzles, etc 
  • Sportivo Package: It will include Adaptive Full-LED matrix headlights, Alcantara headliner and pillars, inox sport pedals, column-mounted paddle shifters. 
  • Nerissimo Package: It will include dark tail lamps, dark exhaust tips, black chrome finishing, black window surround etc. 

2022 Maserati Levante Release Date 

As per the International Maserati website, the three trims of Levante namely the GT, Modena, and Trofeo are available to order for MY22 from 1st July 2021. So, you can rush to your nearest dealer and reserve one for yourself.

2022 Maserati Levante Engine and Performance

The 2022 Maserati Levante will be available with two different engine options depending upon the trim you choose. The Levante GT will be equipped with a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V-6 engine producing 350 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The Levante Modena will be equipped with the same 3.0L V-6 engine but in a different state of tune and it will produce about 430 hp. The Levante Modena S trim will be equipped with a larger 3.8L V-8 engine producing 550 hp. All the engines will be mated to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and it is known to offer seamless shifts and a responsive experience. All the trims will come with a standard all-wheel-drive configuration. 

2022 Maserati Levante SUV In Acceleration Mode

Considering the 2021 model, the 2022 model is expected to do 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and a quarter-mile drag will be done in about 14.1 seconds. The Levante’s performance is surely gonna be its strongest USPs. Just like the 2021 model, the 2022 Levante will offer very good handling for its size. The Sport Skyhook adaptive suspension will work just as intended and harden in aggressive drive mode. However, even in its default setting the suspension is sprung towards the stiffer side and your ride might get jittery due to road undulations. A softer setting would have been appreciated for better passenger comfort. All trims will be equipped with powerful brembo brakes equipped with dual cast discs to reduce unsprung mass.

All the SUVs are equipped with a 3.0L engine in different configurations. As a result, the difference in their performances is very negligible. The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 is the most powerful of the lot and despite being the least powerful, the BMW X5 is faster than its competition. It does a 0-60 mph sprint in 5.3 seconds and a quarter-mile drag is done in about 13.8 seconds. It is followed by Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 at 5.5 seconds, Maserati Levante at 5.8 seconds and Porsche Cayenne at 5.9 seconds. 

2022 Maserati Levante Fuel Economy

The 2022 Maserati Levante is surely a fuel guzzler when compared with its competition. The efficiency of the V-6 powered model is similar to other V-8 powered cars. Its EPA rating for the base model is 16 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 18 mpg in combined driving conditions. With a fuel tank capacity of 21.1 gallons, it can travel up to 337 miles in the city, 464 miles on the highway, and 379 miles in combined driving conditions. Most of its competitors offer much better fuel efficiency.

2022 Maserati Levante Interior

The interior of the 2022 Maserati Levante will surely be a place to behold. With a perfect blend of Italian craftsmanship and modern design elements, it’s definitely one of the better-designed cabins. The 2022 model is expected to receive minor changes in the interior department. However, most of the functions are bound to be the same as the 2021 model. It will accommodate up to five passengers comfortably. All the seats will be trimmed in leather upholstery and the front seats will receive heating functionality as well.

The Levante was designed to look like an arrow in motion and it surely does. The front fascia will retain its twin sleek LED headlights with LED DRLs and a signature front grille with an updated Maserati logo in it. The front bumper will be highlighted with a black mesh grille and twin circular fog lamps. The side profile will be the same as before but will now get trim badging above the fender vents.

2022 Maserati Levante Safety

Just like the 2021 model, the 2022 Levante has not been tested by the NHTSA or IIHS and we don’t expect it to get tested anytime soon. The Maserati Levante comes with some passive and active safety features to ensure the safety of its passengers. Some basic safety features like airbags, traction control, stability control, anti-lock braking system, etc. The 2022 Levante will also get features like a blind-spot monitoring system, highway assist system, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, surround-view camera, forward-collision warning system, hill descent control, and some more.

2022 Maserati Levante Competition

2022 Maserati Levante V/S 2022 BMW X5 xDrive40i 

The BMW X5 produces less power than the Levante but its performance is slightly better. It is also much more fuel efficient than the Levante. It is also much more practical than the Levante considering a much higher cargo capacity.

2022 BMW X5 xDrive40i 

However, the Maserati aces in the handling department and its exhaust note is unmatchable. It also comes with better designed interiors and cocoons its passengers in sheer luxury. The Italian craftsmanship is clearly visible even in some finer details of the Levante’s interior and exterior. It is also definitely a better looking SUV between the two. However, it is much more expensive than the BMW X5 XDrive40i. We feel the BMW X5 is a better choice between the two of them. 

2022 Maserati Levante V/S 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 is very similar to its fellow German BMW X5. It is more powerful than the Levante and offers better performance than it. Despite being more powerful, it offers much better fuel economy than the Levante. It also offers better cargo capacity than the Levante. However, the Levante is lighter and handles very well. It also offers a higher ground clearance than the GLE 450.

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 Front Angle View

The Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 comes with a more subtle design language whereas the Levante is a flamboyant Italian with its aggressive styling. It is also more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. The MErcedes-Benz GLE 450 is also premium and features a luxurious cabin but can’t match the Levante. However, we would pick the GLE 450 considering all the other features. 

2022 Maserati Levante V/S 2021 Porsche Cayenne 

The Porsche Cayenne comes very close to the Levante in terms of handling and even surpasses it under certain conditions. It is less powerful than the Levante but offers nearly the same performance. It is more fuel efficient as well. The interiors of both the cars are on par with each other.

2021 Porsche Cayenne 

However, we feel that the Levante just looks better with its aggressive front and elegant rear profile design. The Porsche Cayenne offers a better cargo capacity than the Levante and is lighter too. The Levante sits on a longer wheelbase and comes with a higher ground clearance than the Porsche Cayenne. Also, the infotainment experience might be a notch better than the Porsche Cayenne. 

2022 Maserati Levante Final Verdict

The Levante is Maserati’s vision of a performance SUV and it surely succeeds at fulfilling it. It handles well and is fairly practical too. The aggressive exterior design, well designed interiors and high-specced infotainment system are surely its USPs. However, the low fuel efficiency is the Achilles heel of the new Maserati Levante

The aural experience from its V-6 engine is surely a bliss and quite unmatched in its segment. It comes with many safety features however, most of the active driver assistance features are optional. So, it all narrows down to your personal preference. If you want more visual flair and a thrilling aural experience, go for the Levante. If you are high on better performance and practicality then check out some other SUVs in the segment.
