2022 Porsche Cayman vs. 2021 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class

Holding true with its brand image of supremacy and elegance, the 2022 Porsche Cayman deserves all the attention that it gets. Consider how it added two more color variants to its usual offerings, and that means you have more options to choose from. There is even a way to match the body with the interior color.

As for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, you will love it for its high-end interior. Expect comfort when riding this vehicle as well.

Design & Style

The 2022 Porsche Cayman is such a revelation when it comes to giving more room for cargo. It transforms the front trunk so that you can fit in two more duffle bags in it. The sports car also gives you the option to cover all surfaces in leather for that modern, classy vibe. There are comfortable seats awaiting its passengers as well.

The Mercedes-Benz SL, on the other hand, is also a two-seat sports car. This comes with a power-retractable roof that is fitted with a glass panel. This can be lowered when the car is moving at 25 mph. The ride also offers comfort to all passengers, including taller occupants. While it has high-quality materials inside, it is not as impressive as its other brothers from the brand, not even toppling down its rivals.

Technology & Safety

One of the things that you will love in the 2022 Porsche Cayman is its straightforward infotainment system. The touch screen easily responds to user inputs, plus it also displays crisp graphics for every command. There is also an option to include Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and built-in navigation for this ride. A total of 12 speakers await those who want to invest in an upgrade. In terms of safety, it offers front and rear parking sensors, and has available blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

The SL has the COMAND infotainment system which is fitted with an eight-inch touchscreen. This also has Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto integration. Among other technologies included in the base trim is a satellite radio, two USB ports, Bluetooth, and a nine-speaker audio system from Harman Kardon. Overall, the system looks older when compared to those found in its competitors. Safety features include the Pre-Safe for automatic window roll up during frontal collision. It lacks front and rear parking sensors though.


Performance wise, the engines of the 2022 Porsche Cayman are impressive – starting off with the base turbo-four that releases 300 horsepower to the flat-six engine that produces 414 horsepower. The SL, has two engine variations – one results in 362-horsepower and the other accumulating 449-horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 Porsche Cayman knows how to please avid followers of the brand. It is simple to understand, and is not as complicated as those of its opponents. It is better in all aspects than that of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
