Few, if any, SUVs can match the Porsche Cayenne in terms of luxury, performance, handling, and agility.
Thanks to its innate performance and solidness, the Cayenne is right at home zipping up winding mountain roads or crossing shallow riverbeds.
And with its base 3.0-liter V6 turbo, you can expect fast acceleration and plenty of power as you go. Because it’s a Porsche you can, of course, expect luxury. The interior is stylish and streamlined – finished impeccably with comfortable, supportive seats for everyone.
And we weren’t kidding about that riverbed. The Porsche Cayenne is offered in an off-road package that includes, among other things, skid plates, a disconnect for the rear sway bar, and a locking rear differential.
But that’s just one of many other options when it comes to this luxury midsize SUV.
There’s a coupe body style and two hybrid powertrains, including the Turbo S E-Hybrid model, which pairs a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with an electric motor for an impressive total of 670 horsepower.
Here’s what US News and World Report and other media outlets loved about the Porsche Cayenne:
• Exhilarating power
• Precise handling
• Luxurious interior
• Plush, comfortable seats
In essence, because it’s a Porsche it’s not just another luxury SUV. It’s a great luxury SUV.
In fact, it’s peerless when it comes to comfort, power, and drive. It received a perfect 5 out of 5 from Car & Driver due to its mix of German engineering and craftsmanship, superb handling, and glove-like comfort. It’s actually derived from the 918 Spyder, according to Porsche. That means it’s rooted in the very history of motorsport.
Inside, it’s all about comfort, convenience, and accessibility.
The cockpit features a rising center console and a multi-function steering wheel that brings all functions within reach of the driver for easy access and control. Among the features: Porsche’s PCM or Porsche Communication Management System, which includes a navigation system. The PCM system is standard in all Porsche models and contains all information and entertainment in one console. Within the same system, you also get 2 SD card readers, an internal hard drive for all your sound system connectivity needs as well as Bluetooth capability.
Other features worth noting about the Cayenne:
The seats are awesome. Standard seats are ergonomic and comfy and can be power adjusted into eight different positions. Rear seating can recline and you can upgrade to include rear-seat heat.
It has advanced safety. Standard airbags and side curtain airbags for both the first and second row make the Cayenne one of the safest SUVs on the road. It also comes standard with rear child safety locks, ABS, and driveline traction control. You can add cornering lights, directionally adaptive lights, as well as lane departure, and blind-spot warning systems.
Pricing can be reasonable. The basic Cayenne model starts at just around $59,600 while the fully loaded turbo version comes in at $159,600.
You have so many options. There are eight different Cayennes available to you: the Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne Platinum Edition, Cayenne GTS, Cayenne Turbo, and Cayenne Turbo S. Yearning for a hybrid? Choose from the Cayenne S E-Hybrid and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition.
