There is no doubt that the BMW X6 was one of the instigators of the SUV coupe fashion, of which it still remains one of the most prominent pillars. Long a benchmark in this segment, it has recently seen its supremacy challenged by the Porsche Cayenne Coupé, one of its most serious competitors. And for some versions, such as the very sporty BMW X6 M Competition 2020, the Porsche SUV even takes its crown in its Turbo S E-Hybrid version! This is why Porsche Quebec, your benchmark Porsche dealer in the city of the same name, gives you, in this BMW X6 M Competition VS Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé comparison, the reasons to choose this very sharp variant of the Porsche SUV if you consider a high performance sport utility.
Exterior design: very pure lines
First of all, the exterior design, which will necessarily be your point of contact with the BMW SUV as with the Porsche SUV. And on this point, the two vehicles are in significant opposition. While the Munich sport utility hesitates between curved lines and sharp angles in particular for its front and rear optics and its grille, the Porsche prefers to play the card of simplicity and refined elegance. Contoured headlamps in the shape of a drop of water, a very ventilated front fascia, muscular hollowed out sides, and a roof sloping towards the rear overlooking the now iconic Porsche light strip: the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé offers a design while finesse and timeless, expressing its sportiness with great measure and subtlety.
Add to that a colorful color chart featuring exclusive and elegant shades, including the very demonstrative lava orange, and a selection of sport wheels that enhance its features a little more, and you have THE most successful profile currently among Premium SUV coupes in the Capitale-Nationale region. As for us, you already know our opinion: faced with lines as racy as those of the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé in Quebec City, the 2020 BMW X6 M Competition cannot compete.
Engine: more performance and eco-responsibility for the Porsche Cayenne Coupé Turbo S E-Hybrid.
But in high-performance luxury coupe SUVs, it’s under the hood. And on this point, neither of the two competing competitors is demerit on the roads connecting Trois Rivières to Ste-Foy. Indeed, on the side of the BMW X6 M Competition first of all, it is an overpowered turbocharged V8 of 617 hp for 553 lb-ft of torque which drives the four-wheel drive via an eight-speed gearbox. The BMW is therefore very sporty!
But once again, it cannot withstand the shock of the powertrain of the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé. Indeed, this one, composed of a V8 with two turbos and an electric motor, delivers overwhelming added power and torque combined for the X6 M Competition, with no less than 670 horsepower for 664 lb-ft. The Porsche puts all this cavalry on the ground with an 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox that is as smooth as it is sporty. The result: 0-100 km / h is smashed in just 3.8 seconds with the Sport Chrono package, all for an incredible top speed on the circuit (295 km / h!). Add to that an ultra-efficient all-wheel drive playing in a league far superior to that of the BMW, and you get an SUV with unparalleled performance, usable summer and winter in the Capitale-Nationale region.
So you will understand: in the round of technical specifications, it was again the Porsche SUV that won the round near Lévis against the BMW in this BMW X6 M vs Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe match!
A road-oriented and highly technological interior for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid.
However, it is still inside the most powerful 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupé that you will enjoy the most of this one between Trois Rivières and Quebec City. And it starts with the interior design. While the 2020 X6 M Competition still hesitates between curves and clean lines, the Porsche is focusing on a less loaded and more rectilinear design, especially for the dashboard. Add to that a steering wheel offering bulges at the 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock time positions for optimal handling, and a rising center console putting all the functions at your fingertips, and you get a cockpit that allows you to become one with your Porsche SUV.
But it's also a very luxurious interior that can offer all the comfort and technologies you would expect from an SUV of this rank near Ste-Foy. Electric seats adjustable in 18 positions at the front, interior that can be adorned with Alcantara, carbon or aluminum, or even a premium sound system signed Burmester: you will have everything you need to make each of your journeys a unique moment, whatever the distance traveled!
So stop by the Porsche Quebec center now, your Porsche dealership located in the city of the same name, to find out why the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé is a better SUV than the BMW X6 M Competition!
