2014 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2014 Volkswagen Touareg 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche Cayenne as you will with the Volkswagen Touareg, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Volkswagen Touareg, 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

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

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 Volkswagen Touareg.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Porsche Cayenne will do just as well as the Volkswagen Touareg, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Cayenne greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Porsche Cayenne and the Volkswagen Touareg. The Porsche Cayenne has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Touareg, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Porsche Cayenne than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
