High-end SUVs have a lot to offer the discerning consumer. And, the 2015 Range Rover Evoque and the 2015 Porsche Cayenne are no exceptions. This year the Range Rover Evoque has undergone a significant re-design, turning it into one of the more stylish and outright beautiful SUVs available. Although featuring very similar specifications on the face of it, the 2015 Range Rover Evoque and the 2015 Porsche Cayenne nonetheless have significant differences, which we will try to elaborate here.
Both the Evoque and the Cayenne pack a lot of horsepower and they are on paper tied at a very respectable 240 hp. This number doesn’t tell the whole story, however, with the Evoque offering a much quicker zero to 60 mph time and a seven MPH higher top speed. This points to the 2015 Evoque’s engine being significantly spritelier than the Cayenne’s, which would need some tuning to compete. The 2WD or 4WD versions of the Evoque are made to go off-road, proving that the Evoque is more than just a gorgeous vehicle.
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport has the most convincing answer to the sporty-SUV conundrum.
Porsche does make a family car, and this is it; the 2014 Cayenne runs the gamut from sporty errand mule to track-worthy sports SUV, with some interesting green options in between.

The largest single difference between the Range Rover Evoque and the Porsche Cayenne is the fuel type in use.
The Range Rover Evoque recommends the use of premium gasoline fuel. However, the Porsche Cayenne burns expensive diesel fuel – which, unlike gasoline, remains at historically expensive levels. The Evoque also provides slightly better fuel economy, edging out the Cayenne by 1 mpg both in the city and on the highway.
The Evoque is a Range Rover – big and bold, with strong lines. Although there is a significant evolution in the styling of the Evoque, you can still tell it is, underneath, a Range Rover. Compared to the 2014 model, the 2015 Evoque is decidedly more stylish. The Cayenne is, on the other hand, regrettably reminiscent of a Subaru Outback, with sloped lines and a subdued profile.
Range Rover here shows their long history in the SUV/4WD sector whereas Porsche has attempted to move into a sector they have little experience in. Exterior styling is, of course, a matter of personal preference, but in consumer surveys the Evoque comes out on top virtually every time. The Evoque also offers an unprecedented number of color and finishing options to allow you to really customize and personalize your ride.
