For better stopping power the Cayenne Coupe’s front brake rotors are larger than those on the e-tron Sportback:

Cayenne opt.

e-tron Sportback

Front Rotors

16.3 inches

17.3 inches

15.7 inches

Rear Rotors

14.4 inches

16.1 inches

13.8 inches

The Cayenne Coupe offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The e-tron Sportback doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.

The Cayenne Coupe Turbo has standard air brakes, which adjust the spoiler automatically during high-speed braking in order to shorten stopping distances. The e-tron Sportback doesn’t offer air brakes.

For better traction, the Cayenne Coupe has larger standard tires than the e-tron Sportback (F:275/45R20 & R:305/40R20 vs. 255/50R20). The Cayenne Coupe’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the e-tron Sportback (F:285/40R21 & R:315/35R21 vs. 265/45R21).

The Cayenne Coupe’s standard 275/45R20 front and 305/40R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 45 series front and 40 series rear profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the e-tron Sportback’s standard 50 series tires. The Cayenne Coupe’s optional 285/35R22 front and 315/30R22 rear tires have a lower 35 series front and 30 series rear profile than the e-tron Sportback’s optional 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Cayenne Coupe offers optional 22-inch wheels. The e-tron Sportback’s largest wheels are only 21-inches.

The Cayenne Coupe has a standard space-saver spare (not available on E-Hybrid) so you can replace a flat tire and drive to have the flat repaired or replaced. A spare tire isn’t available on the e-tron Sportback; it requires you to depend on roadside assistance and your vehicle will have to be towed.

The Cayenne Coupe offers active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The e-tron Sportback doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The Cayenne Coupe offers an available adjustable active suspension system, which counteracts cornering forces actively, limiting body roll and improving handling and stability. Audi doesn’t offer an active suspension on the e-tron Sportback.

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Cayenne Coupe is 1.5 inches wider in the front and 66.2 inches wider in the rear than the track on the e-tron Sportback.
