2022 BMW X4 vs 2022 Porsche Cayenne


We’ve all been there before, staring down the car aisle at the local dealership trying to decide between two vehicles that look almost identical on the outside but offer very different experiences on the inside. With such similar features and specs, you may wonder what makes the 2022 BMW X4 different from the 2022 Porsche Cayenne in terms of performance, quality, and overall value. Let’s take a closer look at some of these differences so you can make an informed decision on which vehicle will suit your needs best.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

Since both cars have so much in common, it’s hard to determine which one is better looking. The same applies to their exterior design language, as they both sport a very similar front-end styling. The three-bar grille with chrome horizontal accents adds some aggression to their overall look, and despite not having many creases or additional lines, they look pretty good. From a profile view, things are different, though as BMW has done a great job at hiding most of its mechanical bits under its clamshell hood while Porsche uses more traditional vents on the side for cooling down some of its powertrain components. 

  • Interior Design

Both cars have very different interior designs. The seats are very comfortable in the 2022 BMW X4 and give a royal look, while in 20222 Porsche, they are elder fashioned. The touchscreen is bigger in the 2022 BMW X4 and can be easily operated, while the 2022 Porsche Cayenne’s touchscreen is smaller and not so easy to operate. In the 2022 BMW X4, you will feel much better comfort than the 2022 Porsche cayenne. It gives you a sporty feel which makes you drive faster than other cayennes. 

Technology & Safety

The groundbreaking infotainment system offered in the 2022 BMW X4 is one of its major pros. While it has an older look and feels compared to its competitors, it provides you a crystal-clear display for GPS navigation and media streaming and compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink for easy integration of your smartphone. You also get plenty of standard safety features like lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control. To make things even better, there is also an optional night vision system as well as surround-view cameras that make parallel parking a breeze! The unique 3D navigation system in the 2022 BMW X4 uses high-resolution maps that provide more than enough detail to help you get where you need to go easily!


In a speed and price point comparison between 2022 BMW X4 and 2022 Porsche Cayenne, the 2022 BMW X4 significantly faster than 2022 Porsche Cayenne. With exceptional power, you will be impressed by quick acceleration. The acceleration of the 2022 BMW X4 is 8-10 seconds faster than that of the 2022 Porsche Cayenne. In terms of fuel efficiency and performance, it takes 3 gallons less to fill up your tank, and you save around $20 per month on the gas cost by driving the 2022 BMW X4 instead of 2022 Porsche cayanne.

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for an all-around vehicle that can handle anything, get your family around town with ease, and is still equipped to take on most any terrain in a pinch, there’s a lot to like about both of these SUVs. The thing that sets them apart is performance. When it comes to handling and horsepower, there are no two ways about it: the 2022 BMW X4 is king. That said, if you have your heart set on a performance machine—then let me introduce you to the 2022 Porsche Cayenne!
