Offering comfortable seats to accommodate the needs of passengers during long rides, the 2019 Volvo XC90 and the 2019 Porsche Cayenne are among the favorites of car buyers in Manhattan. These cars also have excellent styling. Want to know more about what they can offer based on a set of factors that will affect the purchase. This comparison will help.

Design & Style

The 2019 Volvo XC90 knows how to impress in terms of design and style, with a great exterior built to boast to its peers in the car world. This car has 18-inch wheels, fitting weight requirements perfectly. It also has LED headlights that can bring you to a night trip without much of a hassle. Combining quality materials with gracious space, the cabin has been designed to surpass everybody's expectations.

In the case of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne, it is easy to be wowed by its sporty styling on the outside, however, it merely looks like a big matchbox with all those rugged edges. This one does impress in terms of offering comfortable seats but many notices that instead of offering three rows of seats that can seat seven, this one offers only two rows that seat five adults.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 Volvo XC90 has planned its technologies very well, lessening the buttons on the dashboard, thus de-cluttering the space. It has a nine-inch touchscreen where functions for the Bluetooth interface, navigation system, and temperature control can be found. When it comes to safety, there is a long list of aids to look forward to, including driver attention monitoring, road departure mitigation, and speed limit recognition.

An overwhelming 12.3-inch touchscreen has been incorporated by the makers of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne in order to get rid of all buttons that previous models had. This is intuitive but the problem is it requires you to get your attention off the road just to be able to navigate the entire system depending on your needs. Traffic sign recognition, lane keeping assist, and blind spot monitoring are part of its driver aids.


Boosting up to 400 horsepower in the 2019 Volvo XC90 is a reliable engine that can beat the one found in the 2019 Porsche Cayenne, as the latter can only generate up to as much as 345 horsepower. Also, the XC90 results in 21mpg for city driving and 29mpg for highway driving. Fuel efficiency ratings for the Cayenne, meanwhile, can only reach up to 19mpg for city driving and 23mpg for highway driving.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Volvo XC90 offers styling, personality, and class that is hard to beat even with a tough opponent like the 2019 Porsche Cayenne. It has technologies that have been refined to meet the expectations of modern day car lovers as well. It also generates a lot of power with its fuel-efficient engine. All these make this car worthy of a second glance, and of course, a purchase later on.
