2021 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2021 Lexus GX

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne easily attracts luxury car buyers with its astonishingly handsome interior. This elegant midsize SUV is made even better by the trimmings inside its cabin. With reliable features to offer, you will never go wrong investing on this one.

As for the 2021 Lexus GX, this one promises a solid list of safety aids. The off-road vehicle now comes with two extra USB ports, as well as an added feature called the Amazon Alexa.

Design & Style

The Cayenne is a ride carrying nothing but the best materials. Its exterior is solidly-constructed making it even more rugged and sporty as it has to be. Inside it, you will feel materials that are soft to the touch. The seats are well-padded thus giving comfort to its four passengers. The seating configuration can be updated to accommodate five with a rear middle seat. There is plenty of room awaiting its occupants, making them feel comfortable during the trip.

The Lexus GX is one ride that can accommodate up to seven passengers across its three rows of seats. The first two rows have supportive seats and are comfortable, but the third row does not offer the same thing. The ride has a cargo area of 54.7 cubic feet but that is when the last two rows are folded. Overall, the cabin looks boring and dated.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Porsche Cayenne has a lot to offer in terms of technology. This setup supports Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and has four USB ports, a navigation system, Bluetooth, 10 speakers, and a satellite radio. The system works flawlessly at all times, displaying crisp graphics and responding quickly to user inputs with its 12.3-inch touch screen. It has front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera included for your safety.

Having an easy-to-use infotainment system that has an eight-inch touch screen, the GX does not really impress in terms of technology features. It does not offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay despite trying hard to impress with the addition of other features. On the safety side, it has pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and a rearview camera.


The 2021 Porsche Cayenne covers a power for 335 horses for its base trim’s V6 engine. Another engine version is capable of aspirating up to 434 horsepower. This one has a twin-turbocharged engine setup. Lastly, the V8 gives off 541 horsepower, impressive enough for adventurous passengers.

When compared to what the Porsche Cayenne delivers in terms of engine performance, the 2021 Lexus GX fails to impress. Considering having a V8 version that only delivers 301 horsepower, you will note that it is quite sluggish in this aspect.

The Bottom Line

With attributes considered to be the best in the world of luxury cars, nothing beats the 2021 Porsche Cayenne. The 2021 Lexus GX easily bows down in this battle.
