Used test: Maserati Levante vs Porsche Macan verdict

You can buy either of these two premium-badged SUVs from Maserati and Porsche for under £30k used, but which one will cut a dash on your driveway? We have the answer.....

Jaguar F-Pace vs Porsche Macan

Our verdict

It’s an easy win for the Porsche Macan. Not only is it cheaper to buy at this age than the Levante, but it’s also more comfortable, much more fun to drive and has a better infotainment system. Only the stingy standard equipment and comparatively tight rear leg room let it down.

The Levante can’t compete on economy either, and it's nowhere near as quick. Your rear-seat passengers may be happier in it, but we'd be selfish and buy a used Macan – it's a much better car and, if you want a diesel-powered Porsche, buying second-hand is now the only way to get one.
