2022 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan

The 2022 Rolls-Royce Cullinan is a dapper and extremely powerful SUV, which has a cabin so extravagant that it is comparable to a royal palace. But does it have what it takes to defeat the 2022 Porsche Cayenne, an SUV which is renowned for its excellent handling, regal cabin and unbelievable power?

Design & style

The Cayenne has a conservative shape, with a roofline that slopes elegantly and the option of a hybrid plugin. The outer curvature is smooth and the 19 inch wheels are pronounced, and within the cabin passengers will be presented with a large 12 inch touch display. The seats are extremely comfortable and capable of being adjusted numerous ways, and can also be heated or cooled while providing soothing back massages.

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is as smooth as silk, both inside and out. While the cabin is ornate and full of all sorts of amenities, the seats in back are not as adjustable as they should be, especially for an SUV with its price tag. Still, buyers get the option of Crystal paint which looks fabulous along with twenty two inch wheels that have seven spokes and a central console which features the whiskey decanter and dual champagne flutes.

Technology & Safety

The Rolls-Royce Cullinan is well equipped with protective gadgets of all types. These include automated emergency brakes, cruise control which is adaptive, frontal impact alerts, lane management and night vision. Amenities within its cabin include a twelve inch display, wifi, Apple CarPlay, climate control and an audio system with eighteen speakers.

The Porsche Cayenne is equipped with every feature found in the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. It has parking sensors, automated emergency brakes, and a camera with surround view, lane control, blind area monitoring and multiple airbags. Luxuries within its cabin include a 12 inch touch display, panoramic sunroof, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, adaptive dampers, multiple drive modes and climate control.


Those that purchase the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid will get a 670 horsepower engine that is capable of accelerating from zero to sixty in an amazing 3.6 seconds, with a maximum top speed of 183 miles per hour. Those that purchase the Rolls-Royce Cullinan will get a V-12, 6.7 liter engine that can generate 563 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in 4.5 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Despite carrying a price tag which exceeds the value of many American single family homes, the Rolls-Royce Cullinan doesn’t offer more than the Porsche Cayenne, and in fact offers less. Its horsepower and zero to sixty acceleration time is inferior and this combined with its minimal adjustable rear seats and terrible fuel economy makes the Porsche Cayenne the winner.
