Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Cayenne, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi e-tron, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi e-tron will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Cayenne. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi e-tron carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Cayenne.

Dimensions
Since the Audi e-tron is much slimmer than the Porsche Cayenne, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Audi e-tron takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche Cayenne.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi e-tron and the Porsche Cayenne are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Audi e-tron has the same turning radius as the Porsche Cayenne, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Porsche Cayenne is clearly the choice over the Audi e-tron for pulling heavy loads. The Audi e-tron has a little less horsepower than the Porsche Cayenne.

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

Warranty
The Audi e-tron comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayenne.
