One of the main attractions of the 2022 Levante Trofeo is its Ferrari sourced engine. If the German and Japanese carmakers failed to nurture your senses, this Italian maker surely will! Being priced at around $150,000, the new Levante Trofeo is challenged by the likes of Audi RS Q8, Land Rover Range Rover SV Autobiography Dynamic, and Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT.

In comparison, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is the most powerful of the lot churning out monstrous 631 horses. It is also the most expensive of the lot but the 3.1-second 0-60MPH dash justifies its price tag. While other rivals sport a twin-turbo tech under the hood, RR SV Autobiography comes equipped with a 5L supercharged V8, which is not the quickest. Audi’s RS Q8 is the cheapest of the lot and offers similar performance as its Maserati counterpart. All cars in the competition are pretty capable, unleashing over 500 horses on the tarmac.

2022 Maserati Levante Trofeo SUV Fuel Economy

6.0/10

When you buy an SUV that comes powered with a twin-turbo V8 engine, efficiency is the last thing to give a thought about. V8 engines are known to be extremely powerful but are revered gas-guzzlers. Once you’re pampered with astonishing power and performance, you’ll hardly think about efficiency. Nevertheless, the 2022 Levante Trofeo doesn’t turn us down. It manages to offer 14,18 and 15 MPG in the city, highway, and combined driving cycles respectively. Being built with a 21.1-gallon fuel tank, it offers a respectable fuel range of 379 miles on the highway

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT despite being the most powerful offers the best fuel efficiency in the lot at 17 MPG combined. It also comes with a large fuel tank at 23.7 gallons which pushes its driving range well over 450 miles. Levante Trofeo and RS Q8 offer the least fuel economy in the lot but the latter comes with a slightly larger fuel tank as compared to the Maserati. This helps it in pushing the driving range over 400 miles. The Land Rover RR SV Autobiography Dynamic despite having a large engine under the hood offers decent fuel economy. Moreover, it has the largest fuel tank under its hood of 27.9-gallons and can cover 440 miles without any difficulty. 

2022 Maserati Levante Trofeo SUV Interior

7.0/10

Maserati has flaunted excellent craftsmanship, which is apparent when you look at the cabin of the 2022 Levante Trofeo. It can accommodate 5 people and the seats are covered with Pieno Fiore Leather. The seats are 10-way power-adjustable at the front and are padded well. The front seats offer an excellent view of the road ahead. On the contrary, the back seats are laid back and restful. As standard, the cabin is embellished with wooden inserts and matte carbon fiber inserts. Moreover, the dashboard is further wrapped with leatherette and has subtle elements like an analog clock which add to its luxurious appeal.

For further comfort, the cabin is fitted with quad-zone climate control with interior air filtration. On the flip side, when you look closely, you’ll notice buttons and other parts of brands like Jeep inside the cabin. This remains one of the disappointments. Else, the controls are user-friendly and well within comfortable reach. The Levante despite being an SUV doesn’t offer much trunk space. At the back, you get a 20.5 cubic foot cargo trunk that can accommodate small bags and luggage. Furthermore, the rear seats can be folded in a 60/40 split for further space.

2022 Maserati Levante Trofeo SUV Exterior

9.0/10

When you look at the Levante, you’ll notice how the Italians are as good as the Germans when it comes to looks. The exterior is composed of galvanized sheets and the quality of paint is admirable. The 2022 Levante Trofeo brings sharper and meaner headlights, while at the back a redesigned tail lights spice up the SUV’s look. At the front, the cleaver-shaped headlights fit well and house the DRLs and projector headlamps.

In between the headlamps, the aggressive-looking grille with double vertical bars adds to the aesthetics. The rear part looks like a coupe due to the tapering roofline. Moreover, the spoiler and chrome-plated quad tailpipes add to its sporty characteristics; typical of a Trofeo variant. Moreover, as standard, you get 22” forged aluminum wheels.
