2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 4MATIC vs 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

The competition between Mercedes-Benz and Porsche goes way back. Both were founded in Germany, and while Mercedes-Benz first set the standard for luxury vehicles, Porsche began following suit shortly afterward. The legacies of both are carried on today, as they both sit atop the automotive industry when you look at luxury combined with performance. Two of their signature models are suited up and ready for takeoff in this comparison between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 4MATIC vs 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

When you look at these two, the first thing that probably jumps out at you is the cost. Sure, you might expect to pay a little more for a luxury performance SUV, but that doesn’t mean it should break the bank. Besides coming in over $15,000 less, the AMG GLE 63 4MATIC also gives you more horsepower than the Cayenne Turbo. Check out some additional comparisons below.

An Expensive Nameplate vs a Tradition of Excellence

The 2018 AMG GLE 63 4MATIC edges out the Cayenne Turbo when it comes to performance (just consider the possibilities of the AMG GLE 63 4MATIC’s 5.5L V8 engine compared to the Cayenne Turbo’s 4.8L V8), but there are a few other areas where the Mercedes-Benz model outshines its competitor. It comes equipped with intelligent features not included in the Cayenne Turbo, such as:

  • Front Power Headrest

  • Front Power Lumbar with Massage Feature

  • Standard Cooled Front Seats

  • Vehicle Location System

  • Exterior Mirros with Integrated Turn Signals

and much more. You can choose the reputation that comes with owning a Porsche, but for a lasting legacy that empowers a sense of excellence and a tradition of performance, you may want to consider the brand that traces its roots back to the very first automobile created.
