2021 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2021 Aston Martin DBX

In recent years super car manufacturers have been getting into the SUV market and this includes the 2021 Aston Martin DBX, which is a lovely vehicle with a serene and opulent interior that belies its earth shattering power. But how does it compare to the 2021 Porsche Cayenne, a sport utility vehicle which has dominated the market for years due to its incredible towing capacity, lavish interior and formidable power?

Design & Style

The Porsche Cayenne is one of the most customizable SUVs in the world. From seatbelt colors to cabin trim and surface materials, every object can be modified individually. This combined with the impressive gauge cluster and analog style tachometer makes it a joy to drive.

The DBX is the very first SUV to be offered by Aston Martin. Its handling is comparable to its car based siblings, with the ability to perform both on and off-road while hauling heavy loads. Like the Cayenne, it offers numerous personalization choices and has a number of different packages and themes, with elegant names such as Capri Machine or Malibu Opera. The frame sits on twenty two inch bronze and black wheels that are very impressive.

Technology & Safety

While the Aston Martin DBX offers a degree of driver assistance gear, it isn’t as extensive as it should be, especially considering the six figure price tag. For instance, while it has a camera with 360 degree view and parking sensors for the back and front, it lacks lane management. Luxuries within its cabin include a sound system with fourteen speakers, navigation that is built in, Apple CarPlay and a touchpad which is integrated with a ten inch infotainment display.

The Porsche Cayenne doesn’t cut corners when it comes to the safety of its passengers. It has all of the countermeasures found in the Aston Martin DBX along with lane management, night vision, and front impact alerts and its camera incorporates infrared technology. Luxuries within its cabin include a Burmester sound system that has twenty one speakers, leather seats that can be cooled or heated and Wi-Fi with Apple CarPlay.


Those that buy the Porsche Cayenne GTS will be treated to a V8, 4 liter engine that can generate 460 horsepower and accelerate from zero to sixty in just 4.2 seconds.  The 2021 Aston Martin DBX is powered by a 542 horsepower engine that can accelerate from zero to sixty in 3.9 seconds.

The Bottom Line

While the Aston Martin DBX provides plenty of horsepower, it is lacking when it comes to driver assistance, it sound system has fewer speakers than the Porsche and its infotainment is dated, which makes the Porsche Cayenne the winner.
