2021 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2021 Infiniti Q50

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne easily takes the top spot when it comes to the world of luxury midsize SUVs. After all, it is gifted with all the amenities that you are looking for in an elegant ride. Sporty as it looks, it is also blessed with powerful engines. Add to that, it also reintroduces the GTS trim for this edition.

Those who want to know what the Q50 offers will surely be amazed merely because it now has a Wi-Fi hot spot forming part of its standard features. The ride also promises spacious seating configurations working for the comfort of its users.

Design & Style

Looking outright lavish, the 2021 Cayenne is something that you will definitely want to boast to your peers. It has a standard SUV body type, as well as the coupe version. This SUV can carry up to five people. Buying a rear middle seat is optional too. The ride is gifted with the best interior materials. Leather upholstery as well as the eight-way power-adjustable front seats are added features in the design and style arena.

Having five seats comfortably spaced inside, the 2021 Infiniti Q50 is definitely one ride that will accommodate the needs of a small family. Note, though, that because of humps found on its rear wheels, there is an area inside that feels tight. There are plenty of soft touch plastics in the ride, but it does not have the same flair that the Cayenne offers.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne has a lot to boast in the technology side. This one carries the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system which is paired with a 12.3-inch touchscreen. It integrates Apple CarPlay, as well as other features like the navigation system, four USB ports, Bluetooth, 10-speaker audio, and satellite radio. This ride has safety elements like the basic rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors.

The 2021 Q50 uses a dual-screen setup to match the requirements of its infotainment system. While this may look good and impressive, it cannot be denied that the driver easily gets distracted when using it. When it comes to safety, the ride has the rearview camera, forward collision warning, and forward automatic emergency braking as a standard.


The 2021 Porsche Cayenne features a V6 engine that is configured to deliver 335 horsepower. There is another engine version found in the Cayenne S, and this one results in 434 horsepower. The Cayenne Turbo, meanwhile, secures a power for 541 horses. All these numbers defeat what the only engine in the Q50 can produce, that is, 300 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne indeed deserves to be in the top spot for luxury cars. It certainly brushes off the 2021 Infiniti Q50 aside.
