Comparing the Maserati Levante vs. Range Rover Sport is a great way to start your search for your next high-performance SUV. After all, while the 2021 Maserati Levante obviously excels against the more laid-back Range Rover Velar, the 2021 Range Rover Sport certainly has what it takes to go head to head with the exceptionally potent and stylish Maserati SUV. 

Although the Levante once again wins out as the model of choice for performance enthusiasts, we’re sure you’ll want to dig into the numbers to learn more.

Range Rover Sport vs. Maserati Levante: Engines & Speed

Would any high-performance SUV comparison be complete without a look at each model’s engine lineup? Here’s what you should know about your options:

Maserati Levante Engines & 0 to 60 Times

  • 345-hp 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 – 0 to 60 in 5.8 seconds
  • 424-hp 3.0L Twin-Turbo V6 – 0 to 60 in 5.0 seconds
  • 550-hp 3.8L Twin-Turbo V8 – 0 to 60 in 4.0 seconds
  • 580-hp 3.8L Twin-Turbo V8 – 0 to 60 in 3.8 seconds

Range Rover Sport Engines & 0 to 60 Times

  • 355-hp 3.0L I6 – 0 to 60 in 6.2 seconds
  • 254-hp 3.0L V6 Diesel – 0 to 60 in 7.2 seconds
  • 398-hp PHEV powertrain – 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds
  • 395-hp 3.0L I6 – 0 to 60 in 5.6 seconds
  • 518-hp 5.0L V8 – 0 to 60 in 5.0 seconds
  • 575-hp 5.0L V8 – 0 to 60 in 4.3 seconds

The Range Rover Sport holds up better than some Scottsdale drivers might expect, but the bottom line is that the Levante easily outpaces its rival in either its standard or range-topping configurations. Plus, you can easily reach a covetable 5.0-second 0 to 60 time without moving all the way down the line.

Since they offer similar amounts of power, and both include AWD as standard, you might wonder about the source of their performance differences. Just for starters, the Levante weighs around 500 pounds less than the Range Rover Sport, and it also achieves a much lower drag coefficient (0.31 vs. 0.35)

Range Rover Sport vs. Maserati Levante: Luxury & Features

Yes, the Levante is the clear speed champion in this high-performance SUV comparison–but that doesn’t mean it makes sacrifices on interior quality or standard features. Here, we’ve highlighted just a few of the features that are standard or available in the Levante, but require an upgrade in the Range Rover Sport:

  • Heated front seats (Standard in Levante, available in Range Rover Sport)
  • Ventilated front seats (Available in Levante, requires upgrade in Range Rover Sport)
