2022 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid vs. 2022 Tesla Model Y

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid easily earns a spot near the top of the luxury hybrid and electric SUV class, owing to its balanced ride and handling, powerful engine performance, comfy and stunning interior, and user-friendly controls. To get a more in-depth view of the Porsche Cayenne, take a look at our comparison article below where we have put it up against its class rival, the 2022 Tesla Model Y.

Design & Style

The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid aims to deliver efficiency in its cabin design which manages to be a feast for both the hands and eyes. It has an elegant design of its dash along with excellent fit and finish. Everything is well put together and feels highly substantial with many leather-wrapped surfaces and nice placement of its toggles and buttons. The car seats five people on well-cushioned and supportive seats equipped with power adjustments. Leg and headroom are just as impressive, making sure travelers can move around comfortably.

The Tesla Model Y focuses on exhibiting a minimalistic approach to its interior styling with a subdued looking cabin that does not have that much going on. Its surface coverings are mostly of a mediocre quality whereas its panels are covered in cheap-looking plastics that are not well-fitted.

Technology & Safety

The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid features a selection of tech devices that include USB ports, 10 speakers, satellite radio, HD radio, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 12.3 inch touchscreen. Safety tools of the car include auto emergency brakes, rear and front parking sensors, collision warning, and a rearview camera.

The Tesla Model Y comes with a number of technological tools such as WiFi hotspot, navigation, HD radio, a 15 inch touchscreen, four USB ports, Bluetooth, 14 speakers, and wireless charging. For safety, the car features several devices that include rearview camera, collision warning, sign recognition, Autopilot, blind spot monitor, cruise control, and auto emergency brakes.


The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is a hot hybrid, generating a combined hp of 455 running through its 3L turbo V6 engine paired with an electric motor. Its estimated EPA rating can fetch up to 21 mpg in combined city/highway driving.

The Tesla Model Y is regarded as a rapid people mover, coming equipped with a dual motor all-wheel drive system. It has enough brawn to spare but Tesla is not showcasing its hp ratings as of the time of writing. The car can get up to 122 mpg-equivalent rating for combined city/highway driving.

The Bottom Line

The Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is definitely a terrific choice of a luxury midsize SUV. It is comfortable to drive while still being agile and fast. Its high price tag is definitely a worthwhile investment to make in view of its apparent extravagance from both its interior style and performance perspectives.
