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.
I agree with everything but the interior comparison. IMO, the Porsche interior, just like all Porsche interiors to date, is terribly distasteful and bland (like a Nissan Altima's all-plastic interior pre-2004 model). All other statements were well said.
