Design & Style

The rugged 2018 Porsche Cayenne is an SUV that can seat up to five adults. This is available in 6 different trim levels with the base level already a great image of a stylish car. It has 18-inch wheels, power-folding heated mirrors, xenon headlights, and a great driving position. It also offers the level of comfort that you want in a car where you can easily get in and out, as well as seat comfortably with plenty of headroom. Materials quality is superb for this car as well.

In the case of the 2018 Mercedes Benz C-Class, you will also see that it has been gifted with a level of class that you are looking for from a car of your dreams. With five trim levels to its name, it only has a set of 17-inch wheels, which is smaller than that found in the Cayenne. Space inside the cabin has been compromised by the maker too.

Technology & Safety

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne remains to be undisputed in terms of its infotainment system which is a crucial part of its technology features. Among its safety features are adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and forward collision warning.

The C-Class, on the other hand, has the COMAND infotainment system that works with its 7-inch display. It may be given a trace pad to complement the interface but this part is not as user-friendly as you have imagined. Advanced driver aids are not available on the base level.
