2022 Porsche Cayman vs. 2021 BMW 5-Series

The 2022 Porsche Cayman is pure class. This one has that driving demeanor that luxury car lovers will definitely appreciate. It even has that open-air driving feature to make you enjoy the experience even more.

In the case of the 2021 BMW 5-Series, you will appreciate its functionalities with its 12.3-inch touch screen display. The ride has been rated excellent in terms of safety too.

Design & Style

If you are looking for more room to stuff your bags during a trip, the 2022 Porsche Cayman allows you to do that. Thanks to the combination of the front trunk and rear cargo. This sports car is ready to be customized to transform all surfaces to leather upholstery. It also has a great layout inside, giving comfort to users who ride it. Those comfortable seats and properly-placed controls will make you want it even more.

With seats wrapped in synthetic leather upholstery, the 2021 BMW 5-Series is gifted with 16-way power adjustments in front. The co-pilot and the driver might find this feature quite disturbing at some instance though. The cabin looks fancy, but it does not impress the same way that the Cayman does.

Technology & Safety

There is much to love too for the Cayman’s infotainment system. Its standard set-up is easy to navigate, and comes with a screen that easily responds to user inputs, while displaying crisp graphics as well. It is also fitted with a built-in navigation system, Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. There is also an option to transform the standard audio system to the more premium 12-speaker versions. Safety wise, it is equipped with front and rear parking sensors, with the availability of blind-spot monitoring, and adaptive cruise control for update.

Gifted with the iDrive infotainment system, the 2021 version of the 5-Series seems to be impressive for having a humongous 12.3-inch touch screen and a 12.3-inch digital driver display to complement that. It offers support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well. The setup, all in all, is confusing to use especially for first-timers. It carries driver aids like lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and forward collision warning.


The long list of engines for the 2022 Porsche Cayman will make you want to invest in it even more. This ride has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that can generate up to 300 horsepower. The most powerful of all engines is one that carries a six-cylinder and results in 414 horsepower.

Carrying a base turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine under its hood, it is embarrassing that a luxury ride like the 5-Series can only heat up the road at 248 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

You definitely will want to own the 2022 Porsche Cayman with all these good features that it has been blessed with. The 2021 BMW 5-Series tries to overpower the Porsche, but it finds a hard time doing so.
