2013 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid vs. 2015 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid 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 Hybrid, 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 Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the BMW X5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid and the BMW X5 have similar Destination Charges.

Performance

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