When it comes to power, the 2019 Range Rover Sport seems to have the upper hand with its impressive engine lineup. Its standard engine is a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that delivers 340 horsepower. It also has a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 diesel engine that is rated at 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. For more power, you can opt for the 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 that belts out an incredible 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. With this engine, the Sport can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in just 5 seconds.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne S, on the other hand, draws power from a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 that produces 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. It can make zero to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds.

In addition, the Range Rover Sport may deliver a smoother and more controlled ride than the Porsche Cayenne S because it has air springs in its front and rear suspension systems. Air springs improve ride quality by absorbing vibrations and maintaining proper ride height. The Cayenne S uses coil springs.

Measurements

The wheelbase of the Range Rover Sport is 1.1 inches longer than its rival's, which contributes to a more composed ride. Also, the SUV's minimum ground clearance is 2.7 inches higher than that of the Cayenne S. As such, it can move over uneven surfaces and off-road obstacles more easily while sustaining less damage. Another noteworthy difference between the two crossovers is their fuel tank sizes. The standard fuel tank of the Range Rover Sport can hold 3.9 more gallons of fuel than the Cayenne's, allowing you to travel farther between fill-ups.

Safety & Security

Both the 2019 Range Rover Sport and 2019 Porsche Cayenne S are fitted with many basic safety features and advanced driver assistance technologies. However, the Range Rover offers a number of additional features for enhanced safety. The crossover comes with optional pre-crash front seatbelts that automatically tighten to improve protection against injury when a collision occurs. Additionally, it has an available driver alert monitoring system that gives out a warning and suggests a break when it detects drowsiness or inattentiveness in the driver. These features are unavailable in the Cayenne S.

Although it costs more than the 2019 Porsche Cayenne S, the 2019 Range Rover Sport may offer better value for your money thanks to its powerful engines, excellent ride quality, and thoughtful safety features.  If you want to know whether the Range Rover Sport is the right SUV for you, feel free to visit Hennessy Land Rover Buckhead and arrange a test drive.
