2017 Porsche Cayenne

There are plenty of quality SUVs out there, but for discerning Wayne and Newton Square drivers who expect the pinnacle of luxury, style, and performance, the list gets smaller. The 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport and 2017 Porsche Cayenne are both high-end luxury SUVs with premium cabin accoutrements like leather upholstery and soft-touch surfaces, as well as high-tech features and spacious cabin seating. But in critical areas like power, drivetrain, and off-road capabilities, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport easily beats out the competition. Do your research with this comparison guide, and then get behind the wheel of the Land Rover model at Land Rover West Chester.

Base Power and Drivetrain

Both of these luxury SUVs are available with a range of robust powertrain options, but if you want more power from a base model, then you’ll want to go with the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. The base engine is a 3.0L V6 that generates 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, which it sends to a full-time four-wheel drive system. If you choose the base engine on the 2017 Porsche Cayenne, then you’ll only get 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from a 3.6L V6 machine, with power being sent to an all-wheel drive system.

Off-Road Capabilities

In terms of off-road performance capabilities, the 2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport seriously outclasses the 2017 Porsche Cayenne.

  • Land Rover Range Rover Sport: This luxury SUV comes with a constantly engaged, full-time four-wheel drive system, as well as an abundance of other off-road performance features. The Terrain Response system boasts different driving modes based on the road below, and the Terrain Response 2 system engages those different driving modes automatically. There’s also an All-Terrain Progress Control system which initiates crawl control, as well as an available two-speed transfer case.
  • Porsche Cayenne: The Porsche Cayenne’s all-wheel drive system isn’t as capable of handling serious off-road situations, and none of the systems mentioned above are available on this model.
