Design & Style

The 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman shows excellence in design in its exterior and interior. With a solidly constructed body, you will appreciate every line and detail on its front. In fact, if you will take a closer look at it, you will notice how it has been polished. Inside this car, you will appreciate that the maker has included the same design offered by the more expensive Porsche 911. The seats are comfortable too which really adds up points to the Cayman.

In the case of its rival, the 2018 Audi A5, you will see how it has been styled in a modern way by its maker. It has a versatile cabin that has also been designed only with the best quality materials acceptable in the world of supercars. While the dashboard is pleasant to look at, you will notice that the rear seats are cramped up, being able to accommodate only passengers who are smaller.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology and safety features, there are a lot of things to love in the 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman. Take note of how the controls have been made functional enough to get the infotainment system going. Advanced driver safety aids are included on top of blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning among others. The 7-inch touchscreen display goes well with its six-speaker audio system.

In the 2018 Audi S5, you will see the user-friendly MMI infotainment system working to your delight. It also has logical controls that make the system dependable. Stability control and traction, forward collision warning, and blind spot morning are added for safety. However, there is one thing you will be disgusted about in this car model.
