2021 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2021 Audi Q8

There is a lot of reason for avid Porsche followers when it comes to loving the 2021 Porsche Cayenne. This ride, after all, is a combination of ruggedness and classiness in one. It also has a reliable set of features to offer.

For the 2021 Audi Q8, the handsome ride is also praised for having an upscale interior. It now offers the athletic V8 engine, plus it promises user-friendliness for its MMI infotainment interface.

Design & Style

Styled with no less than the best materials that make it look athletic and modern at the same time, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne has a lot of things to boast to its would-be buyers. It has a remarkable setup inside, one that assures comfort to its users. It also comes with two rear seats and an option to upgrade to one with a rear middle seat to expand seating capacity to five. It has a generous amount of legroom and headroom at both rows, promising plenty of room to stretch even for taller adults.

Easily expanding its cargo space to accommodate 60.7 cubic feet of space when the rear seats are not in use, the 2021 Audi Q8 is definitely one of those rides that you will appreciate in terms of spaciousness at the back. Note though, that while the styling is nice, it lacks some design components that the Cayenne readily offers.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne is equipped with the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system. This one is super easy to use, and its highly configurable 12.3-inch touch screen is remarkable. This responds quickly to user inputs regardless of which feature the user wants to access, whether Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, or the navigation system. Safety features include a rearview camera and a pair of parking sensors each for the front and rear.

Gifted with 10 speakers, HD radio, three USB ports, Amazon Alexa, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the 2021 version of the Q8 seems to be impressive. Along the safety side, it has a rearview camera, and an assortment of driver aids like the Audi Side Assist, Audi Pre Sense Front and Rear, and the Audi Pre Sense Basic.


The 2021 Cayenne is setup to have a base engine that can reach up to 335 horsepower. This is for the V6 engine. As for its V8, results are slated at 541 horsepower. That of the Q8’s engine delivers 335 horsepower, but lacks the power that the Cayenne gives its users.

The Bottom Line

A stylish ride that has all the amenities that you are looking for, it is easy to understand why residents of New Jersey look forward to owning the 2021 Porsche Cayenne. Even a car as handsome as the 2021 Audi Q8 does not beat the said ride.
