When looking at luxury SUVs, it can be easy to get excited about all of the interesting features and enhanced innovations. But when you are really trying to narrow down your search, you need to dig a little deeper and really compare what each vehicle offers. Let’s examine the differences between the 2019 Maserati Levante and the 2019 Porsche Cayenne.

Head to Head: The Cayenne vs. the Levante

Feel the difference

When you get behind the driver’s seat of a luxury vehicle, you should have certain expectations. The vehicle should offer great handling and you should feel comfortable behind the wheel. To its credit, the Levante provides 5-way active air suspension to deliver a smooth ride. While this works for a basic trip on the highway, the Cayenne takes it a step further, offering Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) and Porsche Active Suspension Management. The enhanced systems from Porsche combine to allow steady movement around tight corners and adjustable damping forces on each wheel individually. With the Cayenne, you have a better sense of control in a wider range of scenarios.

Trending tech

The Levante comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to help you stay connected, displaying your smartphone’s apps on the center screen. The latest Cayenne offers these convenient resources as well, but also enables compatibility with the Porsche Connect app. The app lets you enjoy online navigation details, including real-time traffic alerts, so you can stay one step ahead.


Additionally, Porsche Voice Pilot lets you name a location and provides turn-by-turn directions in no time. Using My Porsche service with your compatible device means you can check to see if you locked your doors or if you need gas, all without having to leave your couch.

Light the way

Driving isn’t all about fun features. You need a vehicle that can keep you, your passengers, and other drivers safe on the road. The Levante is equipped with full LED headlamps to provide a clear view of the road ahead. But what about the areas that aren’t so easy to see? That’s why the Cayenne offers the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) Plus that utilizes electronic cornering lights that shine around corners to give fair warning of approaching terrain. Night Vision Assist also makes it easy to spot pedestrians thanks to an infrared camera.
