The market for mid-size luxury crossover SUV’s is filled with a variety of options. Making the choice between a Porsche Cayenne and a Mercedes GLE might not be as difficult as you would think. Most car brands tend to focus on one or two main aspects like performance, technology, and style. None of these brands can do it quite like Porsche can.


First and foremost, it doesn’t matter if it’s a sedan or an SUV, all luxury vehicles need to have a certain degree of performance and agility. Porsche has been known for years to be able to effortlessly blend those two factors. And don’t just take our word on it, Eric Stafford from Car and Driver says, “The 2022 Porsche Cayenne has a particular set of skills—specifically those that have to do with driving enjoyment. Despite being a two-row luxury SUV with a heavy curb weight, it moves deliberately and gracefully.”


As with all big SUV’s, they need to be able to handle the curves of the road and do it with comfort in mind. Cody Trotter for Car US News says, “The Cayenne is a blast to drive. Well-weighted steering, strong brakes, and a stiff suspension all help turn this SUV into a corner carver. At the same time, the ride is generally comfortable, even if the pavement gets bumpy.”


Overall, the Porsche Cayenne checks all the boxes needed to be considered a great luxury vehicle. Dan Frio from Edmunds says “The 2022 Cayenne expertly melds midsize luxury SUV utility with precise handling, a range of powerful engines, and what feels like an intravenous connection to the road from the driver’s seat.”
