Both the Range Rover and Cayenne have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The Cayenne’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Range Rover offers optional Intelligent Emergency Braking, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The Cayenne offers an available collision warning system without the automated brake feature which would prevent or reduce the collision if the driver fails to react.

The Range Rover offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Cayenne only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that beep or flash a light. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

To help make backing safer, the Range Rover’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Cayenne doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

Both the Range Rover and the Cayenne have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front and rear seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

The camshafts in the Range Rover’s engine are driven by a hardened steel chain, with no maintenance needs. The Cayenne 3.6 DOHC V6’s camshafts are driven by a rubber belt that needs periodic replacement. If the Cayenne’s cam drive belt breaks the engine could be severely damaged when the pistons hit the opened valves.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Range Rover has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the Cayenne. The Range Rover’s optional 22-inch wheels are larger than the 21-inch wheels optional on the Cayenne.

The Range Rover offers an optional full size spare tire so your trip isn’t interrupted by a flat. A full size spare isn’t available on the Cayenne, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Cayenne, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover has a standard automatic front and rear load leveling suspension to keep ride height level with a heavy load or when towing. The Range Rover’s height leveling suspension allows the driver to raise ride height for better off-road clearance and then lower it again for easier entering and exiting and better on-road handling. The Cayenne doesn’t offer a load leveling suspension.

The Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Cayenne doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Range Rover is 1.3 inches wider in the front and .6 inches wider in the rear than on the Cayenne.

The Range Rover’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50.7% to 49.3%) than the Cayenne’s (52.3% to 47.7%). This gives the Range Rover more stable handling and braking.

The Range Rover Supercharged executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the Cayenne Diesel (26.7 seconds @ .71 average G’s vs. 27.1 seconds @ .64 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 2.93 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Cayenne (11.63 vs. 8.7 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Range Rover’s minimum ground clearance is .88 inch higher than on the Cayenne Turbo (11.63 vs. 10.75 inches).

The Range Rover’s standard easy entry system raises the steering wheel and glides the driver’s seat back, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. An easy entry system costs extra on the Cayenne.

On a hot day the Range Rover’s driver can lower all the windows using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Cayenne can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Range Rover has a standard rear speed-sensitive intermittent wiper with a full on position. The rear wiper standard on the Cayenne only has an intermittent setting, so in a hard rain visibility isn’t as good.

When the Range Rover is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Cayenne’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

The Range Rover’s optional Parallel Park can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Cayenne doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
