The Cayenne's closest rivals have been the Infiniti FX37 and FX50; those Infiniti models are getting renamed this next year, though—to the QX70.
Otherwise, the Audi Q7 might seem like the natural alternative to the Porsche Cayenne, it's significantly larger inside, with an available third-row seat, a different range of engines, and its own take on luxury and style.
Its supercharged V-6 engine also emerges as stronger in many respects compared to the Cayenne's base V-6.
BMW's X5 is new for 2014.
The Range Rover Sport is a similar mix of on-road performance and off-road ability to the Cayenne's, but its aging design and somewhat cramped quarters pull up short; the Sport is due for a redesign this next year.
And for a very capable alternative, check out the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8; it's an even better competitor to the Cayenne Turbo than before, at a much lower price.
