2014 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2015 BMW X5 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 BMW X5.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Porsche Cayenne, 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 Porsche Cayenne will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW X5, 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 Porsche Cayenne will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the BMW X5.

Dimensions
The Porsche Cayenne is about the same width as the BMW X5. When looking at overall length, the Porsche Cayenne takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X5.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Porsche Cayenne doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW X5.

Handling
The Porsche Cayenne has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Porsche Cayenne is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayenne greatly out-muscles the BMW X5.

Utility
The Porsche Cayenne has less seating than the BMW X5, making the BMW X5 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche Cayenne has less cargo space than the BMW X5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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