How can you decide which luxury performance SUV is right for you? Few brands are as capable and iconic as Range Rover and Porsche, but there are several differences that that will make the difference between finding the right vehicle for your lifestyle and driving habits, and making a purchase that you’ll regret. While both the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S and the 2017 Range Rover SUV provide the luxury and power that drivers expect from a modern luxury performance vehicle, they clearly aren’t created equal. Take a look at our vehicle research page to learn more about the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S, available at our dealership in Los Angeles, or continue here to get more details on differences between the German-engineered Porsche SUV and the 2017 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|
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.
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.
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.
