To ensure fairness, we’ve chosen similarly-priced variants of both the Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover Sport for this comparison. For many buyers in this segment, performance remains a top priority. Performance luxury SUVs offer the same exhilaration as their sedan and coupe counterparts, coupled with everyday versatility and practicality.

For the ultimate in exhilaration, the obvious answer is the Porsche Cayenne S. The Cayenne S offers an impressive 468 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque produced by its muscular 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Conversely, the Range Rover Sport Dynamic is hindered by its complex 6-cylinder gas engine featuring a Mild Hybrid (MHEV) system. Conventional wisdom would lead you to believe that such sophisticated engineering would produce higher performance and efficiency numbers for the Range Rover Sport. Sadly, that’s simply not true.

The gap between two in terms of power produced is impossible to miss, especially horsepower, where the Cayenne S has a 73-horsepower advantage. This underwhelming power is especially noticeable when comparing both the top speeds and 0-60 times of both SUVs, and the optional Sport Chrono package will drop the Cayenne’s 0-60 to 4.4 seconds. Part of this is down to the Cayenne’s power advantage, but it also has to be noted that the Cayenne has a 200-pound weight advantage on top of that. The Cayenne isn’t just quicker either, it packs some serious stopping power. The 14.9-inch rotors on the Range Rover Sport would be large compared to what you’d find on a lot of competitors, but not the Cayenne. Not only are the rotors bigger, at 15.3 inches, but they come with six-piston calipers for absolutely unbeatable stopping power.

Safety is important too, and the Cayenne’s advantage in this area doesn’t end with the brakes. Front knee airbags are often overlooked as an important safety component, but Porsche hasn’t forgotten. Porsche also hasn’t forgotten that you probably want to protect your wheels from thieves, and wheel locks are therefore standard, an optional extra on the Range Rover Sport.
