Coming to the interior, both the SUVs (Sport Utility Vehicles) offer an amazing cabin. High-quality materials are used all around adding to the premium look and feel of the interiors. The XC90 benefits from third-row seating, something that the Cayenne misses. However, the Cayenne makes up for it with reclinable second-row seats. Second-row passengers, hence, can relax throughout the journey. The Cayenne gets leather upholstery as standard while the XC90 offers synthetic leather upholstery. Sure, the higher trims are dressed in genuine leather. But the absence of them on the base trim sure does hinder the overall reach.

The Cayenne comes with a precision-engineered infotainment system fitted with a wide range of infotainment features. The base Cayenne gets a 12.3-inch touchscreen display along with Android Auto™, wireless Apple CarPlay, HD Radio, and a 10-speaker sound system, to name some of them. The touchscreen’s feedback is flawless, and the overall usability is simple. Sure, the XC90 also offers a similar set of features. But the smaller nine-inch screen slightly takes away the user experience.
