2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 Porsche Cayenne

Mercedes-Benz has a total of five crossover SUVs and the most captivating is probably the GLC. It has plenty of strengths on top of its exquisite beauty. Majority of car enthusiasts agree that is the car of choice in terms of practicality. With tons of customization options, once can easily make a dream car out of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC.

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is an astonishing vehicle being able to bridge the gap of an SUV and the luxurious branding of a Porsche. It will be fun to compare the two vehicles as they both have incredible styling and impressive performance.

Design & Style

The GLC is designed to be massive. Even the details are on the hefty side such as the big LED taillights and the bigger star logo up front. Its semi-voluptuous shape completes its perfectly sexy crossover looks. Inside its cabin is a whole new level of luxurious styling. The application of wood and metallic trim is sensational to the point of being dramatic.

While the latest Cayenne is noticeably bigger, its styling had very minimal changes. The slim LED taillights and ribbed front intakes are very similar to its previous versions. Aside from the obvious reuse of its old style, it also looks a bit like the Panamera at the rear and its fascia.

Technology & Safety

The GLC has all the essential tech features that most drivers use on a daily basis. The surround-sound audio system will keep everyone entertained during long rides. The menu structure for the navigation system is easy to get used to. The GLC has the standard safety features. Among its driver aids, the adaptive cruise control is commendable as it is very precise.

The infotainment features of the Cayenne are highlighted by a 12.3-inch display and a pair of instrument panels. While it does have a set of driver aids, the Cayenne is not yet crash-tested so its safety credentials remain a mystery.


The turbocharged engine of the GLC base model can get up to 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It is enough to give a smooth driving experience. Higher trims have more oomph but they also come in a heavier price tag.

The Cayenne comes strong with a V6 engine for a 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. This strength for a base model is a very bold move for Porsche.

The Bottom Line

Despite its hefty engine and superb performance, it does not change the fact that there are more at stake when having the 2019 Porsche Cayenne. First, it is not yet safety-tested. This is disappointing since the Cayenne is a luxury vehicle. The recycled design is also a let-down for being too uninspiring.

Overall, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC gets the nod against the Cayenne. Its performance and tested safety features set it apart from its rival.
