The 2021 Porsche Cayenne lives up to its description as a ‘five-passenger sports car,” but can it really keep up with the indomitable 2022 Range Rover? If you don’t plan on road tripping, don’t need much cargo space, and don’t plan on going off-road, you and your passengers might be satisfied with the Cayenne. If you do need a vehicle that’s ready for anything, the Range Rover deserves your full attention. Our Range Rover vs. Porsche Cayenne matchup has all the details.
The Porsche Cayenne does offer an off-road driving mode, but the Range Rover excels in ways that no other brand can match:
We don’t yet have complete specs for the expected 2022 Range Rover engine lineup, so it’s difficult to say which SUV offers more horsepower and torque for your adventures in Chandler and Tempe. With that said, the Range Rover and the Cayenne have both offered a wide range of engine options, and each can be expected to deliver more than 500 horsepower in some upper-level configurations.
We also know that the base-level Range Rover offers more power than the base-level Cayenne: 355 hp vs. 335 hp.

Although Porsche does not advertise the interior dimensions of their models, Phoenix and Gilbert drivers can compare the two models on cargo space:
That’s right: the Range Rover is offered with an extended wheelbase (designated LWB) which makes its advantage over the Porsche Cayenne even more significant. Choosing this extension will also increase your second-row legroom from 39.2 inches to 46.8 inches. We’d be surprised if the Porsche Cayenne came anywhere close.
