2014 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2013 Acura ZDX Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
The Porsche Cayenne requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura ZDX, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Porsche Cayenne will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Acura ZDX, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Porsche Cayenne is much higher than that for the Acura ZDX.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Cayenne is much slimmer than the Acura ZDX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Porsche Cayenne takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Acura ZDX.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Porsche Cayenne does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Acura ZDX.

Handling
The Porsche Cayenne has the same turning radius as the Acura ZDX, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Porsche Cayenne is clearly the choice over the Acura ZDX for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayenne greatly out-muscles the Acura ZDX.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Porsche Cayenne and the Acura ZDX. The Porsche Cayenne has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Acura ZDX.

Warranty
The Porsche Cayenne comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Acura ZDX.
