2015 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid or 2015 Lexus RX Hybrid?

The 2015 Lexus RX Hybrid is a better value than the Cayenne Hybrid. Though not as powerful as the Porsche, the Lexus’ standard powertrain is more than strong enough for daily travels while also delivering outstanding fuel economy. The RX Hybrid has a comfortable ride and composed handling. Inside, you'll find a quality cabin with roomy seating and a higher maximum cargo capacity than the Cayenne Hybrid. Unless you're yearning for a nicer interior or a more performance-oriented vehicle, the RX Hybrid is the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2015 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid or 2015 BMW X5?

The nonhybrid 2015 BMW X5 is another cost-effective alternative to the Cayenne Hybrid. Beyond delivering one of the most enjoyable rides in the luxury midsize SUV class, its available diesel engine provides outstanding fuel economy. The BMW’s roomy, well-appointed cabin features an intuitive infotainment system with a massive 10.2-inch display. That said, the Porsche's significantly higher reliability rating and added level of refinement make it a better vehicle than the X5.
