So, let’s start with the presentation of these two examples. The first to be announced is a large car of German origin, here is the Porsche Cayenne. It is none other than it is SUVs sports (and luxury) par quality; one of the first models of this segment to appear on the market. In fact, the photo house from Stuttgart was one of the first Europeans to believe in the project of high wheels, even before the fashion, which still dictates the law on the streets today, made everyone and in fact all drivers and brands love …
Cayenne was born in 2003, back in 2003, and year after year it has been able to become one of the queens of the car market worldwide. Last year 2022, the nineteenth year of the respective model, brought many innovations; first of all the new configuration of the Platinum Edition, but also other improvements in the standard version, and additions (with a green eye) in terms of engines.
In turn, the Range Rover Sport, a model released by the legendary American company land rovers already in 2005, it is now presented in a completely new version, more spacious, even sportier and more luxurious. The 2022 model has been updated technically and aesthetically, but this update certainly has not caused the traditional characteristics of power, elegance, comfort and technology to be lost, which have distinguished the model since its first series. Here too the speech connected to the engine expands.
Dimensions and aesthetics, in your opinion, which car is the best?
Talking about Porsche Cayenne specifications is a bit boring and difficult, in fact it is a longer discussion than the ones about all other cars. Indeed, in this case the steps vary slightly depending on the version of the selected model. Speaking more generally, we see that the GTS, Turbo and Turbo S E-Hybrid sports trim levels are a few centimeters lower than the other variants. However, we can talk about a length of 4.90 meters, about 2 meters in width and about 1.70 meters in height, with a wheelbase of 2.90 meters.
This third generation Cayenne comes with some updates in terms of style and aesthetics; but fortunately the face of the model has not changed a single bit, remaining as elegant and sporty as before… On the outside, in the lower part of the body work we find a grille with horizontal strips and air inlets on its sides; above these you can see the small peak of the House and at the same level the LED light poles. The bonnet, on the other hand, is made up of two ribs that serve to simplify the model.
In the passenger compartment, a good combination of luxury and sports victories. The first impression is given by the beautiful covers and attention to every detail; but also a pleasant and refined three-spoke steering wheel, a large and technological dashboard that is divided into analog and digital, dominated by a 12.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment and navigation.
Range Rover Sport flexes its muscles in its super SUV dimensions that reach 4.94 meters in length and 2.20 meters in width and 1.82 meters in length; wheelbase instead in this case is equal to 2.99 meters. Aesthetically, the model presents itself as an elegant, “double” and at the same time sports car; just now after fixing the headlights complete Well-integrated LED lights with a thin mask, new air intakes now with horizontal growth, and a narrow nose.
In the interior, on the other hand, a minimalist vision of design prevails, characterized by great purity of design. In the middle of the dashboard we find a 13.1″ infotainment touchscreen, and the Pivi Pro navigator is integrated as usual.
Settings, engines and prices, this is where the game comes into play…
Cayenne is very focused on personalizing its cars and for this reason it offers its customers five different engine types (three petrols and two plug-in hybrids). The base version features a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder gasoline engine capable of producing up to 340 HP, while the S trim level has a 2.9-liter 440 HP. The most active proposals (petrol) are instead represented by the GTS and Turbo trim levels, which have a 4.0-liter 8-cylinder engine that is rejected in the 460 HP version for the GTS and in the 550. HP for Turbo.
The E-Hybrid trim level always has a 340 HP 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine coupled with a 136 HP electric motor for a total maximum power of 462 HP. But the most powerful engine is represented by the Turbo S E-Hybrid configuration; in this case the 136 HP electric motor supports the 550 HP V8 engine, with a maximum combined power of 680 HP.
