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

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class 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
The Porsche Cayenne requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Cayenne is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Porsche Cayenne transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Handling
The Porsche Cayenne has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Porsche Cayenne, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class. When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayenne greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Porsche Cayenne and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The Porsche Cayenne has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

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