A passengers review of two luxurious off road vehicles, the Porsche Cayenne and the Range Rover Vogue Supercharged.
The Porsche Cayenne is comfortable and for such a large car it handles corners and speed bumps well, especially at speed. It travels well for a smooth, sturdy ride. The car is relatively quiet, engine noise is minimal, however at higher speeds some noise builds up around the doors.The interior of the Porsche Cayenne is finished to a very high standard, the radio controls and screen set up extremely high quality and the controls are precise and easy to work. The seats are large and comfortable and the heated seat device is extremely efficient, with the seats heating almost instantly. The seats are electrically adjustable in the front and the car's interior is gorgeous leather upholstery. The different road settings are easy to access, at the simple touch of a button the car can be changed into a different setting to suit the terrain. Back-seat television screens can also be fitted, providing entertainment in the back. Climate control is very efficient and works instantly. The car also has a useful reversing camera at the back of the car which comes up with an image on the display screen when reversing. The Porsche Cayenne also contains full size passenger and driver advanced airbags and cruise control is available on long journeys. The Porsche Cayenne is made with five seats, with plenty of room in the back and the front it is the perfect family car. However, there is no seven seat version of the car. The boot is very large and practical and can be automatically shut with the push of a button. However, the Range Rover Vogue Supercharged also has its advantages, with the supercharged pack adding speed to the vehicle it makes it perfect for family use, yet a fast car as well. As a passenger, the Range Rover makes you feel comfortable and safe as the car appears sturdy. It handles the road smoothly and holds the road around corners well. At high speed the Range Rover seems less agile and less able to handle corners with such ease. The engine itself makes very little noise and is very smooth. The car is very reliable and has little problems and always appears to be in excellent working condition. However, with the supercharged kit added, this appears to bring more problems, with the supercharger overheating when travelling at a high speed. The Range Rover is extremely powerful when towing, unlike the Porsche Cayenne. The Range rover also has audible rear parking sensors and large driver and passenger airbags. The interior upholstery is extremely high quality with large leather seats. Even though the seats are large, there is plenty of space in the back for passengers. The technology is advanced with a touch-screen display screen with a selection of settings for radio and CD's. There is a six-disc CD player located in the front which is easy to access. The front seats are automatic and easy to adjust. The car has plenty of space and the boot is large, with a useful split tailgate. Making it more useful for family life than the boot of the Porsche Cayenne. Overall, the Range Rover is a fantastic, practical family car that offers great advantages, however it doesn’t compare to the luxury handling and comfort of the Porsche Cayenne.
