2019 Porsche Cayenne vs 2019 BMW X5

Serving Houston, TX

Driving a luxury SUV means having plenty of space in the cabin and taking advantage of impressive features that are now more technologically advanced. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne and the 2019 BMW X5 are top choices that are known as rivals of one another. When selecting the model you want to purchase, it's important to compare each vehicle and how they stack up to one another on the road.

Interior Features

As the third-generation Cayenne, the SUV has more advanced features that make it desirable and cutting-edge. The car features smart cruise control that slows down once traffic or upcoming cars are detected on the road with the use of a sensor and camera. Additional features include tall and wide rear doors, a panoramic roof, adaptive cruise control, heated and ventilated front seats, a 21-speaker Burmester premium audio system, a 360-degree view camera system, four-zone climate control, keyless entry, soft close doors, and sports seats.

The 2019 BMW X5 comes equipped with an elegant cabin that is more spacious but lacks leg and hip room that makes it difficult for adults to ride in the second and third rows. An optional power-controlled cargo cover offers convenience with protecting items that are transported in the back of the vehicle. Glass controls, a leather-wrapped dashboard, and a digital instrument cluster are all optional, meaning the SUV has fewer standard features that are advanced compared to what the Cayenne provides without having to pay for upgrades.

Exterior Features

The staggard-width tires are a new addition on the 2019 Porsche Cayenne and increase the traction on the car while also contributing to its commanding stance. Matrix LED headlights are also impressive with cutting-edge lighting technology that uses advanced technology to shut off certain bulbs when oncoming cars are approaching. There are even adjustable grille shutters on the body that open and close to minimize drag or cool the engine. The spoiler that is added is also active and deploys in specific dragging conditions to increase the aerodynamics of the vehicle. The SUV is also designed to be 49 pounds lighter than its predecessor and uses aluminum on its shell.

The exterior of the 2019 BMW X5 stands out for its kidney grille that is larger but looks awkward and outdated compared to the modern design of the Cayenne. The car appears more athletic with its side surfacing and wide lights, which are stylish but look similar to what you'd find on a sedan.


The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is known to be more powerful and quicker than its predecessor, promising plenty of acceleration on the road. The car even offers a smoother ride due to two additional chambers on the suspension system for more effective spring rates. The car is equipped with a 4.0-liter V-8 engine that can reach 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, which is extremely competitive for its class.

The performance of the 2019 BMW X5 is subpar compared to the 2019 Porsche Cayenne with its 335-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter that accelerates slower than its rival. Fortunately, the shifts are snappy, and the engine is smooth with how it drives. All-wheel drive comes standard on the X5 for added traction on different types of terrain.
