It was just yesterday when I ran a review featuring two rather interesting competitors. That would be the Porsche Macan Turbo and the Range Rover Velar SVAutobiography.

Well, we're going to do a round two. This time, their siblings are going head-to-head.

Stepping up a size into more roomy accommodations, now we're pairing up the likes of the Cayenne versus the Range Rover Sport. This time it's a wee bit different though. That's because I think the match up is a bit closer.

In one corner we have the Cayenne Coupe in its standard trim. No Turbo variant here to help push it over the edge. In the other corner is the Range Rover Sport with the 400 horsepower six-cylinder motor. Also, this is a standard engine option — no SV trim here.

So, what's it going to be, Spies?


First place: Porsche Cayenne Coupe

The Cayenne Coupé is the better choice if you’re after a sporty SUV. It’s more engaging to drive than the Range Rover Sport, while also being more comfortable. It’s less expensive too, allowing you to add more key options at the same budget. This base model makes the most sense in the range, but we’d still recommend the more practical standard Cayenne over this Coupé.

Second place:
Range Rover Sport

The Range Rover Sport isn’t as agile as its rival, nor as comfortable, but it does have one significant advantage. There’s much more room inside, particularly in terms of boot space, and there’s the option of seven seats as well. This means it’s a better choice for more people as an overall model – yet this thirsty P400 model isn’t our pick, despite its smooth engine and long list of standard kit.
