Porsche has really outdone themselves with their line of new Porsche SUVs, and more importantly the 2020 Porsche Cayenne. Our customers at Porsche Nashua are raving about the latest Porsche Cayenne, yet many wonder – how does it compare to its lead rival, the 2020 INFINITI QX50?
Both the Porsche and INFINITI SUVs are stylish, leaping ahead of other competitors for their brilliant design and individuality. That said, it takes more than just great styling to make a phenomenal SUV. Behind every great luxury SUV is a well-oiled engine, and while the 2020 INFINITI QX50 is no small fry, its standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine can only put out around 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft worth of torque. And with a CVT backing it, the performance is far from record-breaking.
The 2020 Porsche Cayenne, on the other hand, breaks expectations even at the base model. Equipped with a 434 horsepower twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne can leap from zero to 60 in simply 4.2 seconds. And that’s just the start, as specs only increase from there as you pay more.
That said, a luxury SUV isn’t only defined by engine performance; luxury amenities count too. The 2020 INFINITI QX50 is no econ car, with its leather seats, wooden trim, and Bose sound system. We’d have liked to see a bigger infotainment system, which can be easily found in the Porsche Cayenne. No matter what trim you choose, you’re getting genuine materials for the cabin as well as a 12.3-inch touchscreen slapped in the middle of the dashboard. You’ll also still get a Bose speaker system, as well as a 4G LTE mobile Wi-Fi hotspot.
While the 2020 INFINITI QX50 is a good luxury SUV, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne pushes expectations beyond the standard. If you’d like to know more, our Porsche dealers at Porsche Nashua can fill you in on all the details and show you what makes this luxury SUV a real hit throughout the Bedford area.
