Comparison Review

Convenience
The BMW X6 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche Cayenne, 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). Clearly, the BMW X6 is a better financial choice over the Porsche Cayenne, when considering 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 BMW X6 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Cayenne.

Dimensions
The BMW X6 is a little wider than the Porsche Cayenne, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW X6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche Cayenne.

Performance
With the Porsche Cayenne, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X6. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X6 has a lot less horsepower than the Porsche Cayenne.

Powertrain
The BMW X6 has much lower torque than the Porsche Cayenne, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X6 and the Porsche Cayenne.

Warranty
The BMW X6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayenne.
