2018 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2018 Buick Enclave

Looking for your first ever car is something that you have been wanting to experience all this time. Now that you are ready to make an investment, you also need to know about the different options that you have. If you are looking for a supercar, you will end up comparing the likes of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne and that of the 2018 Buick Enclave. Let us compare these cars to give you a better idea of what will be best for you and your family.

Design & Style

The rugged exterior features of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is complemented well with modern elements that are also seen outside it. Consider the edgy wheels and the impressive grille design, and you will realize how beautiful the car is. Inside it, you will see that this family-worthy car is more than willing to provide the amount of space that you need for a long ride. On top of this, all seats are soft to the touch with other cabin features working to your delight.

There are also a lot of reasons to be impressed with the 2018 Buick Enclave, especially when looking at it on the outside. It may be solid in terms of construction, but it lacks the appeal that the Cayenne has. The third-row seat inside it is not even gracious enough to accommodate tall and older passengers.

Technology & Safety

The reasons to be impressed with the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is multiplied by the technology and safety features that you will find inside it. The infotainment system is always one to love with Porsche car models, including the Cayenne. Safety wise, it has been gifted with blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and adaptive cruise control as some of the features to love.

For the 2018 Buick Enclave, the support that the infotainment system gives to its smartphone integration capabilities is impressive as well. Other features are a failure for this car model though. The lack of safety driver aids and a soothing audio system will make you back out of the purchase.


Inside the hood of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is a remarkable V6, 3.6-liter engine whose capability reaches up to a maximum output of 406lb-ft of torque and 420 horsepower. These numbers prove that it defeats the V6, 3.6-liter engine in the Enclave. The latter can only produce up to as much as 302 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

Now that you have compared these two cars, you already know which one deserves of your investment. Going for the 2018 Porsche Cayenne will truly be the wisest choice you will make.
