Head To Head Luxury: 2019 Maserati Levante vs. 2019 Porsche Cayenne

Zeigler Maserati of Schaumburg is excited to bring to you the 2019 Maserati Levante. Ever since Maserati debuted the Maserati Levante three years ago, they’ve been aiming to make their foray into the SUV world a worthy endeavor. Boasting engines built at the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy and class-exclusive Ermenegildo Zegna silk upholstery, this SUV is equal parts athletic, luxurious and Italian. Let’s see how it stacks up against its competitor: the 2019 Porsche Cayenne.

Performance

Maserati vehicles are often praised as elegant, but when you take the 2019 Maserati Levante out for a spin, it’ll prove to be more than just another luxury brand SUV. The powerful turbocharged V6 engine comes standard, which lends the driver 345 horsepower and makes the 2019 Maserati Levante capable of reaching zero-to-60-mph in 5.8 seconds. And if you really want to leave them in the dust, consider the V8 engine option, offering up to 590 horsepower and reaching 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne, while no slouch, can’t keep up the pace with its standard 335 horsepower and arriving at 60 mph in 5.9 seconds.

Technology

For those who are not easily swayed by horsepower and acceleration, might we suggest you turn your attention to the center stack? The 2019 Maserati Levante is enhanced by its standard features such as Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. On top of the entertainment features is SiriusXM Travel Link, giving the driver constant updates on traffic and weather conditions in real-time. Not to mention, five available USB ports are also available, just in case everyone in the vehicle needs to charge their phone at once. On the other hand, the 2019 Porsche Cayenne offers a substantial infotainment system but lacksAndroid Auto™ and only provides two USB ports.

Convenience

It’s not just the center stack that can make a drive more enjoyable, sometimes it is the little features that make life just a bit easier. The 2019 Maserati Levante offers remote start and a hands-free power trunk feature. Both are great for when you’re trying to get from Point A to Point B with as little hassle as possible. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is equipped with a power-operated liftgate as well, but the kick sensor, which comes standard in the Maserati Levante, is only offered as optional.

Certainly, both of these luxury SUV have enough features to make any driver envious. However, in terms of what’s under the hood and in the cabin, the 2019 Maserati Levante is the clear winner.
