Luxury SUVs are some of the most desirable vehicles on the market for their high-end features, powerful engines, and comfortable cabins. At Land Rover Norwood, we are proud to offer some of the most renowned luxury SUVs on the market, including the Land Rover Range Rover. The Range Rover offers all the comfort and style you expect but with the size and capabilities of a true off-road vehicle.

Its performance sets the Range Rover apart from much of its competition, but let's see how it compares blow by blow.


The X5 is a midsized SUV with plenty of style and refined, BMW style, but once you stack it up with the Range Rover, it starts to look a little less appealing. Both vehicles seat five passengers and prioritize comfort and passenger space when it comes to the interior.


The Range Rover's base 3.0-liter V6 Supercharged engine gives you 340 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. This is considerably more than the X5's 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. Not to mention, the Range Rover's deep bench of available motors that quickly leave the X5 in the dust. These extra options include a turbocharged diesel engine and a staggeringly powerful V8 gas engine.

Off-road enthusiasts near Boston should opt for the Range Rover with its host of performance features like Terrain Response 2, Electric Air Suspension, and All Terrain Progress Control that make it easier to take on some of the toughest conditions and trails. The X5 doesn't have anything similar to offer drivers who need some extra capabilities in their SUV.

Additionally, the X5 does not offer standard AWD, while the Range Rover uses its AWD system to take on tough conditions right from the base model.


Both vehicles offer plenty of high-end technology so you can enjoy your daily drive in luxury, but the Range Rover goes the extra mile with convenience features and an innovative entertainment system. For Range Rover convenience features that you won't get standard on the X5, we've got Remote Engine Start, a hands-free liftgate, satellite radio, and a rear A/C.

The Range Rover also offers a premium sound system and the Touch Pro™ Duo entertainment system, giving you a whole new way to access your entertainment.

Porsche Cayenne

The Cayenne offers a classic design with a sporty drive, but the Range Rover's refined cabin and distinct style give it a strong edge along with its impressive performance.


The Range Rover beats out the Cayenne easily with its standard and available engines, with more horsepower and torque available at the base level and a wider range of engines available. This extra strength translates to more capabilities like more towing capacity than the Cayenne. The Range Rover also offers more features like tow hooks, an optional full-size spare tire, and four-wheel drive to make your life a little bit easier during tough conditions around Newton.


Safety is a huge priority when shopping for a new SUV and the Range Rover gives you plenty of advanced safety features that the Cayenne does not. Basic solutions like integrated turn signal mirrors and a hands-free communication system keep you safe on the road while advanced features like Lane Departure Warning and available Cross-Traffic Alert use tech to raise your awareness and prevent accidents in Quincy.

The Cayenne just doesn't offer as many safety systems, so if you want the latest and greatest tech behind you, go with the Range Rover.

The Final Decision

Ultimately, the Range Rover beats out both models with its powerful performance and advanced standard technology. If you need some more convincing, just stop by our Brookline area dealership today and see this impressive vehicle for yourself firsthand.
