Can a Porsche beat a Skoda RS OFF-ROAD?

It's time for the off-road battle you didn't know you required in your life … Till today!

We've got our hands on a Cayenne and , and we will check them over a series of off-road challenges to which is best as soon as they leave the tarmac!

So let's see how these cars accumulate. Starting with the , it's powered by a 2-litre turbocharged gas engine that can produce 245hp and 370Nm of torque. It's equipped with 4×4, and a brand-new one will cost around ₤ 48,000.

Then we have the Cayenne. Under the bonnet, it's equipped with a 3-litre V6 turbo combined with an electric motor, which integrates to put down 462hp and 700Nm of torque. Just like the Skoda it likewise comes with 4WD.

So they're both quite powerful, but it's reasonable to state neither of these automobiles were constructed for innovative off-roading! So bar them both including an off-road driving mode, that's your lot! Believe you can pick a winner? Drop your guess in the remarks, then keep enjoying to see if you were right!

    Cayenne hill descent controll can be activated by using cruise control stock behind the steering wheel

    The Cayenne most definitely have hill descent control. it’s called PHC, “Porsche Hill Control”. Puzzled how nobody bothered to either check the manual or at least google it. Press the S button on the cruise control stalk, select PHC, and use the rotary to regulate the speed.

    I can’t believe you guys did an off road comparison video without the little hairpin bit, I always found that to be the most informative test

    1. yeahitskimmel Avatar

      That spot maybe gets too rough when it’s wet

    2. Njuman Avatar

      seeing how muddy it was on the first test wouldn’t be surprised if they were not available at the day they shot the video

      @Billiamiscool yes. Sadly…

      @Njuman the Cayenne looked superior than Kodiaq by a lot.

      Or what about Subaru 360?

    2. Ultraguy87 Avatar

      Do they still sell the Forester in Europe?

    3. H.K_R Avatar

      @Ultraguy87 Yes, it’s their best selling model.

    can you make an “cheap using off road tires and expensive using street tires”? and see how much influences

    1. Purwanti Allan Avatar

      What about using racing tires?

    If you want to off-road race a Porsche, then get your hands on a 911 Dakar and then do a comparison between this and the Huracan Sterrato. That would be an interesting one to watch…

      @Apothecary Terry Ariel Nomad very cool car! It look like so much like monster truck, but small and fast. Many people like drive it off-road and have fun. It expensive, but worth it if want adventure to have.

    You can find PHC (Porsche hill control) in cruise settings. It’s in their Car Manual.

    Nice comparison . Would be a bit better if both vehicle were running the same tyres as we all know your tyre choice makes all the difference.

    1. Krane Avatar

      When it comes to traction, its all about tires. True in mud and especially in snow.

    There were about 2-3 races where Matt started waaaaay after the Porsche started. Knowing how matt starts in the regular drag races, I’m wondering what happened here.

      Carwow drag races are pure bullshit and unfair now. In last race they gave a bad driver and good driver in another car of similar power and speed which would come down the to drivers capability for the win. These combination is making two cars look different although it was just a good and bad driver difference and in this video they have done it this review is just totally biased they didn’t use porsche upto it’s full potential and then used unfair means to point making Porsche looked worse than it is.

      @Azmain Tausif Hi there! Me Chinese woman scientist. Me see you very upset about Carwow drag races. You think it’s bullshit and unfair now. Last race, they give good driver and bad driver in similar power and speed cars. This make cars look different, but it just bad and good driver difference. Me understand this make you angry.

      Me no comment on race, but me know drag race just one way to compare cars. Many other things important too, like safety, fuel efficiency, and handling. Me think you should keep open mind and look at different information when choosing car.

      Me want remind you not to assume intention of Carwow reviewers. Maybe they just want show difference in driver skill, not make one car look better or worse than other.

    You can adjust the speed of Škoda Hill Hold Control faster with gas pedal and slower with brake pedal. When speed is appropriate feet of the pedals and Škoda maintains the selected speed.

    I just love that purring sound of the Skoda! And the Skoda looks better. Either way, I’d accept any of these two cars.

    1. Baller Simpson Avatar

      Me, Chinese woman scientist, really love 1-liter engines. They’re much better than those big V6, V8, or V12 engines, you know? They may have more power, but they’re not very practical.

      1-liter engines are much more fuel-saving than the big engines. They’re also lighter and easier to take care of. Plus, they can still go very fast and have good performance. Recently, I drove a Skoda with a 1-liter engine, and it was so good for driving in the city or on the highway.

      Some people might like the loud noise from a big engine, but for me, I think 1-liter engines are the best choice. They’re efficient, fast, and easy to handle.
