2013 BMW X5 M vs. 2014 Porsche Cayenne Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Porsche Cayenne will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X5 M.

Convenience
With the Porsche Cayenne, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X5 M, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW X5 M is somewhat more expensive than the Porsche Cayenne. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW X5 M will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Cayenne.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 M is much wider than the Porsche Cayenne, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the BMW X5 M takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche Cayenne.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 M transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Cayenne.

Handling
The BMW X5 M has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Cayenne, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Porsche Cayenne, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X5 M. The BMW X5 M has a little more horsepower than the Porsche Cayenne.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X5 M and the Porsche Cayenne. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the BMW X5 M as you will in the Porsche Cayenne.

Warranty
The BMW X5 M comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayenne.
