2016 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2016 Lexus GX 460 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus GX 460 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Porsche Cayenne.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Porsche Cayenne, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460.

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 Lexus GX 460, 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 Lexus GX 460.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Cayenne is much wider than the Lexus GX 460, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Porsche Cayenne takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GX 460.

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 Lexus GX 460.

Handling
The Porsche Cayenne has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, 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 the Lexus GX 460. When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayenne greatly out-muscles the Lexus GX 460.

Utility
The Porsche Cayenne has less seating than the Lexus GX 460, making the Lexus GX 460 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche Cayenne has less cargo space than the Lexus GX 460, 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 Lexus GX 460.
