The Levante has standard Active Headrests, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Headrests system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Stelvio doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Levante. But it costs extra on the Stelvio.

The Levante offers an optional Surround View System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Stelvio only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

Both the Levante and the Stelvio have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available crash mitigating brakes and lane departure warning systems.

The Maserati Levante weighs 643 to 883 pounds more than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The NHTSA advises that heavier vehicles are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

For better traction, the Levante has larger standard tires than the Stelvio (265/50R19 vs. 235/60R18). The Levante S’ tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Stelvio (F:265/50R19 & R:295/45R19 vs. 255/45R20).

The Levante’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 50 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Stelvio’s standard 60 series tires. The Levante’s optional 265/35R22 front and 295/30R22 rear tires have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile than the Stelvio’s optional 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Levante has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the Stelvio. The Levante’s optional 22-inch wheels are larger than the 20-inch wheels optional on the Stelvio.

Suspension and Handling

The front and rear suspension of the Levante uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Stelvio, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Levante has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Levante’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Stelvio doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

The Levante’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Stelvio doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Levante’s wheelbase is 7.4 inches longer than on the Stelvio (118.3 inches vs. 110.9 inches).

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Levante is .7 inches wider in the front and 1.4 inches wider in the rear than the track on the Stelvio.

The Levante S handles at .91 G’s, while the Stelvio AWD pulls only .84 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Levante S executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.4 seconds quicker than the Stelvio Ti AWD (25.5 seconds @ .74 average G’s vs. 26.9 seconds @ .67 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the Levante has a 1.6 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Stelvio (9.7 vs. 8.1 inches), allowing the Levante to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The front grille of the Levante uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Stelvio doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

The Levante has .2 inches more rear headroom and 2.7 inches more rear legroom than the Stelvio.

For enhanced passenger comfort on long trips the Levante’s rear seats recline. The Stelvio’s rear seats don’t recline.

The Levante has a larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the Stelvio with its rear seat up (19.4 vs. 18.5 cubic feet). The Levante has a larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the Stelvio with its rear seat folded (57.3 vs. 56.5 cubic feet).

The Levante’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The Stelvio has neither an oil pressure gauge nor a temperature gauge.

Manual rear side window sunshades are available in the Levante to help block heat and glare for the rear passengers. The Stelvio doesn’t offer rear side window sunshades.

When the Levante is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Stelvio’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

Optional air-conditioned seats in the Levante keep the driver and front passenger comfortable and take the sting out of hot seats in summer. The Stelvio doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats.

The Levante has a standard heated steering wheel to take the chill out of steering on extremely cold winter days before the vehicle heater warms up. A heated steering wheel costs extra on the Stelvio.
