How Does One Compare the 2015



The Porsche Cayenne has proven the doubters wrong time after time. Not only is it a great SUV for the family on the go, it can take off the road to get you to your ultimate destination – including up in the Wasatch Ranges. The Cayenne also performs like a Porsche – great acceleration, strong performance and fine driving dynamics.


Still, the doubters do not believe it. How can Porsche prove that the Cayenne is a great SUV? A comparison was made with the Cayenne against its top two rivals – the BMW X5 and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class – to see where its stands once and for all..

When comparisons are made, it is good to read beyond the table. There are some reasons to love the Cayenne. It’s lighter weight, better fuel economy, and wide range of models - including a diesel and a plug-in gas-electric hybrid – gives the Cayenne the advantage as a viable SUV. No matter which Cayenne you choose – it is still a Porsche to the core.


This is why the Cayenne is a familiar sight in the Valley and up in the mountains. It just seems that no one doubts the Cayenne’s capabilities as a SUV around here. In fact, Ken Garff Porsche loves the Porsche Cayenne than any other SUV in its class.
