You'll find standard Matrix-design LED headlights as standard fare on the Cayenne, an available feature on the Panamera, which offers LED headlights standard. The panoramic roof system is standard fare on the Panamera and available on the Cayenne but if you're looking for extra cargo room, you'll only find it on the Cayenne with available roof rails.
