2017 Porsche Cayenne S vs. 2017 Range Rover SUV: Performance

2017 Porsche Cayenne S vs Range Rover

While both SUVs are designed with performance in mind, the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S and 2017 Range Rover SUV couldn’t be more different when it comes to on-road performance. The new Porsche Cayenne S was developed with the DNA of a sports car and the body of a modern luxury crossover. The latest edition of the Range Rover SUV is built to mirror the handling of a luxury sedan, but it’s not nearly as responsive or dynamic as the new Cayenne S. Key performance specs for the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S and the 2017 Range Rover SUV include:

2017 Porsche Cayenne S Model 2017 Range Rover SUV
3.6L turbocharged V6 Engine 3.0L supercharged V6
420 HP Horsepower 340 HP
406 lb.-ft. Torque 332 lb.-ft.
17 MPG city 24 MPG highway Fuel Efficiency 17 MPG city 23 MPG highway
8-speed shiftable automatic Transmission 8-speed shiftable automatic
AWD Drivetrain 4WD

In addition to the differences listed above, the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S can reach a top speed of 161 MPH under track conditions while accelerating from 0-60 MPH in 5.2 seconds. While the 2017 Range Rover SUV is a capable vehicle, it simply can’t match the Cayenne S when it comes to speed and acceleration.

2017 Porsche Cayenne S vs. 2017 Range Rover SUV: Design & Technology

2017 Porsche Cayenne S vs Range Rover

When it comes to design, both models offer classic styling, but the overall look of the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S is much more contemporary than the newest edition of the Range Rover SUV. On the exterior, the Cayenne S mixes traditional Porsche design with sophisticated front and rear ends, while its sport-minded wheels offer a hint as to the performance drivers can expect. On the inside, Cayenne S borrows a few design cues from the iconic 918 Spyder, but also offers ergonomic functionality and intelligent styling. Upon entering the new Cayenne S, passengers will be warmly greeted by comfort-focused seats with eight-way electric adjustment in the front and backrest angle adjustment in the rear in partial leather. In addition to the unique design features, the Porsche Communication Management system included with the new Cayenne S SUV provides navigation, hands-free calling, media management, and smartphone connectivity with an intuitive design and ease of use that few systems are capable of offering.

2017 Porsche Cayenne S vs. 2017 Range Rover SUV: Safety

Featuring racetrack level safety systems, the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S keeps its occupants protected from the unforeseen with active and passive features. The 2017 Range Rover, while a sturdy vehicle with several adaptive driver aids, doesn’t offer quite the same levels of security.

  • The Cayenne S features Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) designed to offer similar levels of stopping power to high-performance sports models.
  • Both models provide advanced stability control, but when paired with the Sport Chrono Package, the Porsche Stability Management system can be initiated later for greater driver freedom.
  • The Porsche Dynamic Light System, available only with the Cayenne S, provides optimum illumination with Bi-Xenon or LED lighting available.
  • Adaptive cruise control with Porsche Active Safe monitors the road up to 650 ft. ahead and applies the brakes when distance suddenly decreases.
