The BMW X6 is slightly lighter and can reach 60mph in just 5.3, which is 0.8 seconds faster than the Porsche Cayenne GTS, having lower CO2 emissions at the same time. But when it comes to the very important fuel consumption, Porsche Cayenne GTS’ figure comes up to 15.54 miles per gallon, which means it’s 14% lower than the BMW X6.
Magazine Autobild wanted to find out how these very expensive vehicles would do on the race track, so they performed a series of tests at the ring in order to compare best laps, acceleration, top speed and braking for the BMW X6 and the Porsche Cayenne GTS, noticing that the figures above are sometimes irrelevant on the track.
So what were the results of the test? The models were pretty similar when it came to braking, as it took the Cayenne GTS 37.4 meters to brake from 100km/h to 0, whereas the BMW X6 made it with a 30cm longer distance. Porsche Cayenne GTS won the top speed test scoring 263km/h, with BMW X6 staying at 252km/h. But the BMW X6 gained ground in the acceleration test, going from 0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds. Cayenne GTS was a whole second behind. The last test was lap times, with BMW X6 having a best lap of 8 minutes and 54.4 seconds and Cayenne GTS of 9 minutes and 1.9 seconds, so it was left far behind the BMW X6.
So there’s no doubt about it! BMW came out on top on this competition. Moreover, BMW X6’s price is lower than Porsche Cayenne GTS’, therefore it’s truly a better and more appealing purchase.
