2015 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs. 2016 Porsche Cayenne Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Porsche Cayenne.

Convenience
With the Porsche Cayenne, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz G-Class 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. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Cayenne.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is much slimmer than the Porsche Cayenne, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is slightly shorter than the Porsche Cayenne, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche Cayenne.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a significantly larger turning radius than the Porsche Cayenne, making it much 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 Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a little less 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 Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Porsche Cayenne. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Porsche Cayenne.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayenne.
