For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Porsche Cayenne have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers. The Toyota Land Cruiser doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

The Cayenne’s optional blind spot warning system uses digital cameras monitored by computer to alert the driver to moving objects in the vehicle’s blind spots where the side view mirrors don’t reveal them. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer a system to reveal objects in the driver’s blind spots.

For better protection of the passenger compartment, the Cayenne uses safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment. It provides extra impact protection and a sturdy mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. The Land Cruiser uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

Both the Cayenne and the Land Cruiser have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front and rear side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

For better traction, the Cayenne’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Land Cruiser (295/35R21 vs. 285/60R18).

The Cayenne’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Land Cruiser’s standard 60 series tires. The Cayenne’s optional tires have a lower 35 series profile than the Land Cruiser’s 60 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Cayenne offers optional 21-inch wheels. The Land Cruiser’s largest wheels are only 18-inches.

For superior ride and handling, the Porsche Cayenne has fully independent front and rear suspensions. An independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort. The Toyota Land Cruiser has a solid rear axle, with a non-independent rear suspension.

The Cayenne offers an available adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Toyota doesn’t offer an active suspension on the Land Cruiser.

The Cayenne offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Land Cruiser’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Cayenne’s wheelbase is 1.8 inches longer than on the Land Cruiser (114 inches vs. 112.2 inches).

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

The Cayenne GTS handles at .95 G’s, while the Land Cruiser pulls only .75 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Cayenne Turbo executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 4.1 seconds quicker than the Land Cruiser (24.8 seconds @ .81 average G’s vs. 28.9 seconds @ .58 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the Cayenne Turbo has a 1.85 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Land Cruiser (10.75 vs. 8.9 inches), allowing the Cayenne to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Porsche Cayenne may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 850 to 1350 pounds less than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

The Cayenne is 4.1 inches shorter than the Land Cruiser, making the Cayenne easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The Cayenne is 7 inches shorter in height than the Land Cruiser, making the Cayenne much easier to wash and garage and drive (lower center of gravity).

Unibody construction makes the Cayenne’s chassis much stiffer, which contributes to better handling, and enables softer springs to be used for a better ride. Unibody construction’s stiffness also contributes to better durability and less body squeaks and rattles. The Land Cruiser doesn’t use unibody construction, but a body-on-frame design.

A low lift-over cargo hatch design makes loading and unloading the Cayenne easier. The Cayenne’s cargo hatch lift-over height is 25.5 inches, while the Land Cruiser’s liftover is 32.9 inches.

A standard locking glovebox (which can’t be accessed with the valet key) keeps your small valuables safer in the Cayenne. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer locking storage for small valuables.

The Cayenne’s liftgate lifts up in one piece, completely out of the way of loading and unloading, while sheltering the cargo loading area. The Land Cruiser’s tailgate’s top part raises up, but the bottom part lowers, getting in the way of loading and making an uneven surface for sliding cargo.

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier, especially for short adults or children, the Cayenne has a standard power rear liftgate, which opens and closes automatically by pressing a button. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer a power tailgate.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Land Cruiser, the Cayenne offers an optional passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position (with optional power wheel adjuster) and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The power windows standard on both the Cayenne and the Land Cruiser have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the Cayenne is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Land Cruiser prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Cayenne to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

Consumer Reports rated the Cayenne’s headlight performance “Very Good,” a higher rating than the Land Cruiser’s headlights, which were rated “Good.”

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the Cayenne detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Cayenne offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Land Cruiser doesn’t offer cornering lights.

The Cayenne’s power mirror controls are mounted on the armrest for easy access. The Land Cruiser’s power mirror controls are on the dash, hidden behind the steering wheel, where they are awkward to manipulate.
