Comparing the Cayenne to the Competition

2016 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2016 BMW X5

Both the Cayenne and the X5 provide the athletic drive, features, and comfort you’d expect from a luxury crossover. However, the X5 can’t hold a candle to the Cayenne’s off-roading options. With a variety of off-road drive modes, the Cayenne will give you the confidence to take on any trail.

2016 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2016 Land Rover Range Rover

Performance capability puts the Cayenne ahead of the Range Rover. The Cayenne can go from 0-60 in as little as 3.8 seconds when you choose the Turbo S trim, an amazing feat for any SUV. If you prefer fuel efficiency, the Cayenne is available with a hybrid powertrain.

2017 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2017 Audi Q7

The Cayenne bests the Q7 with a tight and maneuverable drive thanks to an impressive lineup of V6 and V8 engines. The Cayenne also stands out thanks to its superior off-road handling. Despite its rugged strength, the Cayenne still offers the luxurious comfort you want in an SUV.

How Does the Porsche Macan Stack Up Against Competitors

2016 Porsche Macan vs. 2016 BMW X4

The Macan continues Porsche’s trend of off-road capable SUVs with a dedicated off-road drive mode. You’ll also enjoy the convenience offered by the Macan, with nearly four more cu.ft. of available cargo space than the X4.

2016 Porsche Macan vs. 2016 Jaguar F-Pace

With 252 horsepower compared to the F-Pace’s 180, the Macan outclasses the Jaguar in power. The Macan also offers a smooth drive, thanks to its PDK transmission, for a vehicle that has a sports car feel and crossover convenience.

2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2017 Audi SQ5

The Macan’s performance-oriented design give it the edge on the aging Audi SQ5 crossover. With compelling sports-tuned tech like PDK transmission, the Macan will have you surprised you’re driving a crossover. Porsche also holds an advantage when it comes to luxury features, like the available heated steering wheel and rear-window sunblind.

Choose the Right Porsche for You

No one can compete with Porsche when it comes to design and performance. Once you settle on Porsche, the biggest decision ahead of you is which model you should choose.

2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2017 Porsche Cayenne

Porsche has already established their dominance over other luxury SUVs, but which Porsche SUV is the better of the two? Your answer will depend on your needs. The Macan has a lower MSRP and better gas mileage, making it an ideal everyday crossover. The Cayenne is larger, and offers greater towing capacity, making it the better pick for families and people frequent travelers.

2017 Porsche 911 vs. 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman

The Porsche 911 and the Porsche 718 Cayman both give drivers the kind of white-knuckle exhilaration only Porsche can offer. The 718’s mid-engine layout provides drivers with near perfect balance. If you crave unparalleled performance, the 911 is the pick for you. However, this boost in speed comes with a price increase when compared to the 718.
