On paper---Turbo= 450 hp 0-60= 5.3
x5 4.8 355hp 0-60 = 6.0

The porsche's handing is a little more sophisticated because all it has made up to this point is sports cars that focus on turning and handiling. They both have smooth rides as you could presume. The turbo is extremely fast and rivals almost every sports car ( M3, Boxster, Audi S4). So purley power trubo wins. As for hangling they are about the same maybe a slight edge to the cayenne turbo. Both interior's are phenominal, as all porsche's and bmw's are.--- Eaither one chosen is great---These are the fastest two SUV's made porsche being that fastest.
