Game Changing Luxury SUVs: Which Is Best for You?

The current crossover and SUV market is red-hot. These family-friendly vehicles have become efficient and versatile thanks to the evolution from traditional body-on-frame designs to car-based platforms. Two vehicles critical to that evolution are the BMW X5 and Porsche Cayenne.

The X5 was introduced in 1999, followed by the Cayenne in 2002. There were other crossover SUVs on the market at the time, but these two vehicles proved you could build a family-friendly vehicle that still embodied the best attributes of a performance or luxury brand.

Flash forward to 2019, and both the X5 and Cayenne are extremely upscale yet athletic SUVs. Both have also been redesigned for the 2019 model year. So which one is the right one for you? Read on to learn how these two vehicles stack up using the data from U.S. News & World Report Best Cars rankings.
