2016 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

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

With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Porsche Cayenne, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Destination Charge for the Porsche Cayenne is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Touareg.

Since the Porsche Cayenne is much wider than the Volkswagen Touareg, 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

With somewhat higher torque, the Porsche Cayenne transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volkswagen Touareg.

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

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.

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.

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