2019 Porsche Cayenne vs 2019 Porsche Cayenne S

Serving North Olmsted, OH

The Porsche Cayenne is among the most exciting SUVs you’ll find. It’s powerful, luxurious, and spacious enough for families. One-of-a-kind styling also helps separate the Cayenne from every other midsize crossover in the class. Many drivers will ultimately be choosing between the base Cayenne and the Cayenne S. Let’s take a closer look at how these two trims compare.


Even the base Cayenne packs a serious level of performance. Motivation comes from a turbocharged 3.0-liter, V6 engine. It cranks out a satisfying 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed transmission optimizes the SUV’s power delivery. You’ll also enjoy a standard AWD system, which ensures the optimal traction on and off the street. If you desire a sportier drive, consider getting the Cayenne S. Porsche equips it with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter, V6 engine. Total output increases to 434 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. While the Cayenne can hit 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, the Cayenne S rips a 0-60 mph time of 4.9 seconds. You can also expect the sports-tuned Cayenne S to offer tighter handling. An adaptive Porsche Active Suspension Management system helps ensure a genuine sports car experience.


Whether you choose the base Porsche Cayenne or the Cayenne S, you’ll cause heads to turn. Both trims have the classic body lines of a Porsche. A long, sweeping hood accentuates the SUV’s sleek profile. All-new LED headlights come standard. Some of the available paint options include Carrera White Metallic, Biscay Blue Metallic, and Mahogany Metallic. Despite the many similarities between these trims, there are some key differences. Instead of twin exhaust outlets, the Cayenne S comes equipped with quad exhaust tips. You’ll also notice the S trim’s unique 19-inch alloy wheels.


When you test drive these Cayenne trims, don’t expect to notice any big interior differences. Like the more powerful Cayenne S, the base Cayenne provides a new 12.4-inch touchscreen with navigation. Leather upholstery lines the cabin. Touch-sensitive buttons are found on the center console. Forward collision detection with automatic braking comes standard as well. Porsche offers 14-way power front seats as an option. Drivers who demand a more exciting music-listening experience will want the available 14-speaker Bose audio system.
