The stylish Maserati Levante SUV offers Italian flair and a sporty driving experience in a package unlike anything the brand has offered before. This new model could prove a compelling alternative to other luxury SUVs such as the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X6.
To help you decide, we’ve pulled together dimensions data for the Levante so you can get an idea on whether this sizeable Italian SUV will fit in your garage.
Maserati Levante exterior dimensions
The Levante is a large vehicle but dramatic exterior styling helps to disguise its bulk well. It’s just more than five metres long, a little more than both the Cayenne and the X6, but around the same as the Mercedes GLE Coupe. It’s within a few millimetres of its main rivals in terms of width, too, but the Maserati has a noticeably lower roofline.

Maserati Levante interior and boot space
The Levante is by far and away Maserati’s most practical model to date, but the car’s styling does demand a few compromises compared to the class best. Space in the front is ample for two drivers, but the rear isn’t quite as generous as you’ll find in similarly sized cars – in fact, even the smaller Jaguar F-Pace offers more passenger space. Four adults will be fine, but anyone sitting in the centre rear seat will find head- and legroom tight.
Boot space is a similarly mixed story – the 580-litre bay is well shaped and features a flat load floor, but it’s around 100 litres smaller than its main rivals – disappointing considering its ample exterior dimensions. Maserati hasn’t yet released figures on the space once the standard 60:40 split rear seats are folded, but we expect it to lag a little behind key rivals. Nevertheless, it’s more than ample for most buyers provided they don’t have any particularly spacious hobbies.

Maserati Levante fuel tank and turning circle
You might expect the Levante’s large exterior dimensions would make it a bit barge-like to park, but its 11.7-metre turning circle is smaller than all its rivals. It’s a whole metre better than the BMW X5/X6.
A fuel tank of 80 litres is reasonable and, with the Levante’s 39.2mpg claimed from its 3.0-litre V6, a theoretical range of 690 miles is possible. Provided you can control your right foot…
|Fuel tank||80 litres|
|Turning circle||11.7 metres|
Maserati Levante weight and towing limits
The Levante is actually rather portly, despite its size, weighing more than even the heaviest BMW X6 M50d and within 50kg of the Cayenne Diesel S – a car with a much larger V8 engine. Towing limits are also a little disappointing, with rivals being able to tow up to 3,500kg.
