Serving Middleburg Heights, OH

The 2019 Maserati Levante and Range Rover Sport are undoubtedly excellent luxury SUVs. The Levante is an elegant, stylish vehicle made by a powerhouse in the luxury category. The latest Range Rover Sport blesses us with yet another installment in the admirable history of one of the most successful SUV manufacturers in the world. This article will compare these models in three different categories in order to decide which is best for you.

Performance

Both the Levante and the Range Rover sport are available in a variety of trims with distinct specifications. In terms of engine performance, Maserati offers four different options: the standard Levante with 345 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, the Levante S with 424 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque, the Levante GTS with 550 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque, and finally the Levante TROFEO which offers an astounding 590 horsepower and 538 lb-ft of torque. Similarly, the latest Range Rover Sport comes in five separate variations with differing performance capabilities. Both the SE and HSE trims offer 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. However, the standard Levante does boast better acceleration and max speed than these alternatives. The Sport’s HST model, which offers 395 horsepower and 406 lb-ft of torque is also short on acceleration and speed compared to the Levante. In addition, the Supercharged Dynamic and Autobiography dynamic versions of the Range Rover Sport offer comparatively less power and performance capabilities than the Levante GTS. The highest performance trim of the Sport, the SVR, boasts an impressive 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, but it is still not up to scratch when contrasted with the TROFEO. These objective performance figures indicate that if you are looking mainly for performance in your luxury SUV, the Levante is clearly the best choice.

Safety and Security

Both the Levante and Range Rover Sport are responsible choices when it comes to safety. Driver assistance features are prominent in both vehicles. The 2019 Levante offers the Advanced Driving Assistance System which provides the driver with increased confidence when maneuvering in tight spaces. Front and rear parking sensors alert the driver when an object is nearby, and an impressive technology called Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) allows the Levante to monitor itself with regards to any issue that could cause instability quickly correct them. The Sport also offers parking sensors, but it lacks an equivalent technology to IVC. Additional features on offer for the Levante but not the Sport include Forward Collision Warning and the Highway Assist System, which keeps the vehicle centered in its lane. It seems clear that in terms of safety and security, the Levante takes the cake.

Design

When it comes to design, it is tough to beat the elegance and craftsmanship of Maserati. Exterior design features of the Levante include iconic triple air vents and a tri-coat paint finish. The interior is crafted with detail and attention, with hand-stitched decals present throughout. The Range Rover Sport boasts impressive design, but Maserati’s legacy of creating beautiful cars is unrivaled.

It is clear that when it comes to the three categories examined, the Maserati comes out on top. We invite you to come to Maserati of Cleveland and experience what the Levante can do for you.
