The redesigned 2019 BMW X4 draws a lot of praise for its athletic performance and practical Cabin, while Porsche Cayenne has user friendly technology features. Are you looking to purchase one of them? The below comparison will help you in making a choice.
Design & Style
The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is a 5-seater model, while most of its competitors have a third row as well. If you are on an extended trip, the front seats are the best position to take, because you may feel cramped at the back. The interior has a clean and attractive look, but rivals like X4 offer more opulence and functionality.
The BMW X4 has two spacious rows that can easily accommodate 5 adults. Unlike other rivals, even rear seats have ample headroom and legroom. You can find the comfort and stability, while on a long drive. The cabin is replete with premium-grade materials, and every trim piece looks opulent and stylish. The cargo space is also much better than most rivals.
Technology & Safety
Standard technology features in the 2019 Porsche Cayenne include the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) system, along with 12.3-inch screen, satellite radio, 10-speaker system, Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay and USB ports. The system has been upgraded as a part of redesign, but it takes time to understand the controls. It can be distracting when you are driving. Standard safety features include parking sensors and a rearview camera.
The 2019 BMW X4 comes standard with an iDrive infotainment interface featuring navigation, Apple CarPlay, 12-speaker audio system and a panoramic moonroof. Wireless charging and satellite radio are optional. The user friendly system has easily accessible controls. Some of the standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, emergency braking, forward collision warning, parking sensors and a rearview camera.
Speaking of performance, the 2019 Porsche Cayenne comes with a base 335-HP V6 powertrain that moves the vehicle with ease. However, you may notice lag while accelerating from a stop. There are no such complaints for the 2019 BMW X4, which comes with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. If you want more excitement behind the wheels, you can also choose the 6-cylinder model. Most reviewers prefer sticking to a base model for better fuel efficiency.
The Bottom Line
The redesigned BMW X4 has all the elements of a luxury car model. It offers better performance than almost all other SUVs of its class. It looks clean and fresh from inside, and there’s no reason why you wouldn’t consider it a good deal. Cayenne is a popular choice as well, but not a winner in overall aspect.
