2012 x5 vs porche cayenne

Did any one compare it?

X5 is last model year and cayenne is new model, better on reliability and a hybrid version is also in consideration. X5 diesel still did not get my heart, ESP leaving it alone not upgrading to 40d for USA

I believe I read that the next gen x5 will either be a 2014 model or introduced in 2014, either way it'll be around for a while longer.

I crossed shopped quite a bit. Came down to X5, Cayenne S and X5 50i. All 3 have very different drives. I liked the Porsche but thought it was the least intriguing and had a very complex dash (so many buttons). The Porsche was also impossible to get exactly what I wanted. Their allocations are low so you pretty much get what they have on the lot (at least here in Orlando).

Personally, I liked the Range Rover Sport the best, but looking at a full picture (maintenance and overall cost of ownership included) I went with the X5.

If I had the money to do go for a Turbo Cayenne, my outcome would have been different.

The design has taken time to grow on me but I like the new cayenne, IF you have the extra 15-20k to cover the options. A well optioned 50i will run you around 70k but a well optioned cayenne S runs into the mid 80s with ease. I love bimmers, but considering the e70 is in its last few years I would be tempted to get something more fresh.

A few members here have had reliability issues with new X5s or 6s ers. I switched after having the X6M with BMW for 3 months for engine trouble and numerous other issues. Couldn't continue and was forced to change.

The Cayenne is an awesome truck, if you can afford the $$$, make the change.

Cheers,

Cross-shopped the Cayenne V6 vs the X5, Cayenne came out to be more money after both were similarly equipped. The Porsche had a nicer interior IMO, and the multifunction dash is really nice compared to the BMW. The allocations were pretty poor at my local Porsche dealership, so we had to wait 3 months to get the exact one we wanted. Couple that, with the fact that the V6 uses a VW motor (had bad experiences with VW in the past), and the X5 3.5 is quite a bit faster sealed the deal.

If BMW sticks with the past, 2014, should be the last model year and 2015 will be the new style ready for purchase sometime in 2014.
