2015 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
When it comes to mid-size luxury crossover SUVs, your final decision will probably rest between the 2015 Porsche Cayenne vs. the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. Both vehicles provide premium performance and luxury, but the Cayenne wins out in terms of practical efficiency and features for all passengers. In terms of overall value, the Cayenne packs more speed, comfort, and style into its crossover frame.
Performance and Efficiency
One of the main advantages of the Porsche Cayenne is that it offers significantly better gas mileage than the Range Rover Sport, providing 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway compared to 17 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, respectively. In addition, the Cayenne zips around with a top speed of 173 mph and 0-60 acceleration of 4.1 seconds, compared to the Range Rover Sport’s 162 mph and 4.5 second acceleration.
Features for All
The Cayenne is made to be a family car, giving passengers plenty of additional leg room over the Range Rover Sport, in addition to some extra standard and available features. For example, while both mid-size luxury crossovers offer multi-way driver’s seats, the Cayenne’s offer 18-way adjustment, while the Range Rover Sport offers a less accommodating 16-way adjustment. A focus on passenger entertainment gives the Cayenne an edge as well, since the 2015 Porsche offers an available Bose Surround sound system, which helps drivers and passengers alike enjoy the ride without overpowering them. While the Range Rover Sport offers two Meridian sound system options, the Bose audio on the Cayenne provides a better value sound solution with the following features:
- 585 watts of output
- 14 speakers
- 9 amplifier channels
- 200-watt subwoofer
Design and Style
Drivers notice the difference in design between the 2015 Porsche Cayenne and the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. While the Land Rover is functional, it just doesn’t offer quite the same aggressive styling as the Cayenne, particularly when compared to the GTS model. An additional available sound tuner for the exhaust, unavailable on the Range Rover Sport, gives the Cayenne a little extra chutzpah for the next road trip. Both vehicles offer comfortable seating, but the Cayenne’s sport seats add extra bolstering to keep passengers secure and cozy.
