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.
