Porsche Cayenne 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 Base 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

The midsized Cayenne is one of the sportiest, most responsive SUVs available. The V6 and eight-speed automatic work well together. V8 and hybrid engines are also available. The eight-speed automatic is supersmooth. The ride is steady and composed but rather stiff at low speeds. The seats are supportive and comfortable, and the cargo area is roomy enough. Interior fit and finish is impeccable, with high-quality leather and brushed aluminum trim, but the controls can be confusing at first. The touch screen for audio, navigation, and phone interaction is easy to reach and straightforward to use. A plug-in hybrid is available and has a 14-mile electric range. It takes 2½ hours to charge with a 240-volt connector.

2011 Redesign Year
Porsche Cayenne 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Base

A comprehensive 2011 redesign made the Cayenne one of the sportiest, most agile SUVs on the market. Available in V6, V8, turbo V8, and hybrid versions, all have a slick eight-speed automatic transmission. A turbodiesel V6 arrived for 2013. Be apprised though, the diesel came under scrutiny in 2016 for alleged cheating on emissions testing, make sure it passes smog before you buy. The ride is a bit stiff at low speeds, but steady and controlled as you pick up the pace. The cabin is well finished, but many controls are over-complicated. Blind spot monitoring and a rear-view camera are optional.

Porsche Cayenne 2010 Trim Shown: 2010 Transsyberia

Modest styling changes arrived for 2008. Over the road dynamics continue to be among the best in the category, with outstanding steering, handling and braking. The ride is controlled, but very stiff. The complicated nature of the controls might be off-putting for some, but the Cayenne comes across just as luxurious as it is capable. Off road capability is enhanced by low range, center- and rear-differential locks. The body can also be raised to improve ground clearance.

Porsche Cayenne 2006 Trim Shown: 2006 Sport Utility

Porsche's luxury, midsized SUV offers V6 and V8 engines. Low-range gearing and advanced electronics support strong off-road capability. The S and Turbo models are very fast; the Turbo S has even more power. Some controls are overly complicated.
