2022 Porsche Cayenne vs. Its Competition

2022 Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

No automaker offers quite the breadth of performance-oriented models seen in the Porsche Cayenne portfolio, though BMW and Mercedes come close.

The X5 and GLE-Class are both offered in numerous flavors and body styles, even if neither can match the finesse of the Porsche Cayenne.

Land Rover’s Range Rover Sport balances serious off-road ability with astounding handling, though it’s not quite as polished as the Cayenne on a winding road.

The Audi Q8 intrigues with its hunchback shape and prodigious power, though underneath it’s a distant cousin to the Cayenne.
