The Edge SEL/Titanium/Sport offers a remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver\'s house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Cayenne doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
On a hot day the Edge’s driver can lower the front windows from a distance using the keyless remote. The driver of the Cayenne can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.
In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the Edge SEL/Titanium/Sport’s exterior keypad. The Cayenne doesn’t offer an exterior keypad entry system.
To improve rear visibility by keeping the rear window clear, the Edge has a standard rear fixed 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.
To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Edge has standard extendable sun visors. The Cayenne doesn’t offer extendable visors.
Optional SYNC AppLink for the Edge allows the driver and passengers access to select programs on their smartphones, including reading text messages aloud, tagging songs to buy them later, searching the internet and other connected activities without taking their eyes off the road or their hands from the wheel. The Cayenne doesn’t offer factory integrated smartphone program access.
The Edge SEL/Titanium/Sport offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The Cayenne doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.
The Edge Titanium/Sport’s optional Active Park Assist 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.
