Costs & verdict
Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is
The starting point for Levante ownership might seem reasonable, but it’s possible to add a five-figure sum in options. Standard equipment includes leather seats, climate control and a touchscreen infotainment system, but you have to pay extra for heated seats, sportier exterior design and a truly sumptuous interior.
Running costs are also on the high side, no matter which engine you go for. The diesel unit emits 207g/km of CO2 and offers records official fuel consumption of 35.8mpg. In practice, we found the figure to be just over 30mpg.
