Maserati just added a second SUV to its lineup, the all-new Grecale. It brings with it elegant Italian styling, a powerful range of engines, and seating for 5. But the Maserati SUV that was the only SUV in the lineup until now – the Levante, also offers all of those things, so Maserati Louisville put together this short guide to help explain what the differences are in these two great Maserati SUVs.

Maserati V8

A Passion For Performance

Maserati has offered two different engines for each model, with different power outputs for each trim level. The Levante offers higher power numbers, and a wider range of options. But it is also a mid size SUV, compared to the smaller, lighter, and more compact Grecale. 0-60 numbers are therefore actually pretty similar when comparing similar power outputs. All-wheel drive comes standard on both models, as does the 8-speed automatic transmission. No matter which engine and trim you select, you’ll get the handling that Maserati is famous for, as well as the exhaust note you’ve always wanted in a performance SUV.

Maserati Grecale Interior

Luxurious Interior

Both of these SUVs offer luxury as well as performance. The Levante takes a classic approach to luxury, with such options as a silk and leather interior by Ermenegildo Zegna. The Grecale takes a more technology-focused approach, with 33 inches of display surfaces in total, including a heads-up display and two touchscreens, compared to the single touchscreen in the Levante. But both offer navigation, SiriusXM, voice-activated virtual assistant, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration as standard. Both also have premium stereo options, with the Grecale offering a 21-speaker Sonus Faber system, while the Levante gives owners the choice between a 14-speaker Harman/Kardon or 17-speaker Bowers & Wilkins system. As previously mentioned, the Levante is also a bit bigger than the Grecale, which can be the difference for buyers looking for a bit more shoulder and leg room. The more compact Grecale is a tad more nimble, making navigating tighter city driving environments easier, while still offering nearly the same cargo capacity as its larger sibling.

Maserati Levante

Exotic Design

The Levante and Grecale have both been styled with the kind of sophisticated Italian flair that you can’t find in competing SUVs. Not that either one needs help feeling special, but the styling is one more area where Maserati sets itself apart. Up front, you’ll find Maserati’s signature fender vents, with trim badging above them. Moving back, there are trident badges on the headrests and the C-pillars.

These are both enthusiasts' vehicles, which have been built to speak to you on an aesthetic and emotional level. It is therefore best to experience them in person. Fortunately, Maserati Louisville is here with a friendly and knowledgeable team to help you pick the right Maserati SUV for you.
