In a market filled with luxury SUV models all vying to be the latest and greatest, year after year two models find new and creative ways to set themselves apart from the pack: the 2020 Range Rover Evoque and the Porsche Cayenne.

At Land Rover Baton Rouge, our team is dedicated to helping drivers near Baton Rouge, Gonzales, and Lafayette make the best decision about their next purchase or lease. To determine which SUV deserves a special place in your garage, continue reading our 2020 Range Rover Evoque vs. Porsche Cayenne comparison.

Range Rover Evoque vs Porsche Cayenne: Performance and Efficiency

Delivering hair-raising performance to match their elegantly crafted designs, the 2020 Range Rover Evoque and the Porsche Cayenne are for drivers looking to add a little adventure to their everyday drive.

Equipped with a 2.0L turbocharged engine, the Evoque provides quick acceleration along with the supreme confidence you expect from a Range Rover. Its 9-speed Automatic Transmission and All Wheel Drive system help supply this luxury SUV with actual off-road capability.

By comparison, the Porsche Cayenne more than lives up to the Porsche legacy. Offering a turbocharged V6 engine that delivers lightning-quick acceleration, it's paired with an 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission that seamlessly manages its supercharged performance.

While the Cayenne is an SUV that commands the straightaway, its overall versatility tends to fall short of the Evoque's more exploratory qualities. This can especially be felt at the pump. When properly configured, the 2020 Evoque receives an EPA-estimated 20 city/27 highway/23 combined MPG.* Meanwhile, the Cayenne receives an EPA-estimated 19 city/23 highway/21 combined MPG.

The capability to travel across any surface is also a primary reason that the Range Rover Evoque continues to appeal to a wider segment of motorists. For example, this SUV comes with features like the Terrain Response® 2 system that will automatically adjust the driving dynamics to match your surrounding environment. You can also manually adjust these specifics, with modes that include General Driving, Mud and Ruts, Grass/Gravel/Snow, and Sand.

The performance boosts don't stop there, however. For drivers eager to explore the unpaved path, you'll also benefit from features such as:

  • Wade Sensing - Alerts the driver if water is beginning to pass the vehicle's wading depth limit of 23.6 inches
  • All-Terrain Progress Control - Maintains a consistent speed between 1 MPH and 18 MPH while on slick surfaces
  • Hill Descent Control® - Prevents the vehicle from moving when placed on a steep incline
  • Low Traction Launch - Provides optimal torque control while maneuvering slick surfaces at low speeds

Range Rover Evoque vs Porsche Cayenne: Design and Interior Space

One of the major differences that sets the Evoque apart from its competition is its unique configurations, including a 2-door convertible option. This is perfect for cruising the back roads or when heading off for a day at beach. It also features a standard 5-door option that includes wide, comfortable seating and a massive cargo area.

On the other hand, drivers who choose the Cayenne will have to remain content with a hard top, although its luxe cabin more than makes up for its traditional design. Similar to the Evoque, the Cayenne supplies a spacious interior with room for up to five passengers.

Only the most acclaimed materials find their way into the Range Rover Evoque as well. There are a few favored options, including the eucalyptus fiber textiles, Windsor leather, and Kvadrat premium wool blends.

The customization options are also quite varied for both models. However, Range Rover offers a more comprehensive package to provide you with a cabin that more closely reflects your own interior styling preferences.

Range Rover Evoque vs Porsche Cayenne: Technology

Travel farther with confidence knowing that-wherever your path leads-the 2020 Evoque will keep you connected to everything you love back home. Thanks to the Land Rover suite of InControl® Apps™, you can easily access all your favorite music, navigation, and services.

There's also the Touch Pro™ system that touts standard 10-inch Touchscreen displays and easy-to-use pinch-to-zoom capabilities. Another notable screen is the Interactive Driver Display that measures 12.3 inches in size and prominently houses information, including navigation, phone settings and applications, plus media controls.

To help you stay better focused on the road ahead while remaining aware of key vehicle information, there's the Head-up Display.  This available feature will showcase need-to-know data, such as speed limit, gear position, and navigation directions on the bottom of your windshield. So, you'll never veer off course while trying to locate that trendy new restaurant downtown.

If you continue to explore technology, you'll find the Navigation Pro system that can display 2D or 3D crystal-clear graphics while giving you a sense of the upcoming topography or the traffic pattern you can expect. To stay in the loop while you're out on the road, the 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot makes it easy to connect devices of yours or those of other passengers.

There's also the Pro Services compilation that includes a number of worthwhile features, most notably:

  • Real Time Traffic Information
  • One-box Search
  • Online Routing
  • Planning Routes and Door-to-Door Routing
  • Commute Mode

Likewise, the Cayenne features a long list of standard tech features that can be controlled through the Porsche Connect app, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
