Poll: Porsche Cayenne or Maserati Levante?
Which high-performance luxury SUV would you rather drive: A Porsche Cayenne or Maserati Levante?
First up, the Porsche. This utility vehicle is like a 911 on stilts; it drives amazingly well for something as large as it is. Looking at the Cayenne S for instance, it features a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that puts out a stout 420 horses. Torque measures 406 lb-ft. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, as is all-wheel drive.
Next we have the Maserati Levante. This vehicle isn’t out just yet, but the production version should debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week. It will be the brand’s first SUV ever. Powertrain information has not been released at this time, but expect all-wheel drive, an eight-speed transmission and an array of gasoline and diesel engines.
So, which if these vehicles do you like more? Vote in the poll below.
