Porsche Cayenne Overview

The midsized Cayenne is one of the sportiest, most agile SUVs on the market. While the base V6 provides good power, the V8 and hybrid engines deliver even more. The eight-speed automatic is super-smooth. The ride is supple and steady but rather stiff at low speeds. The seats are comfortable, and the cargo area is roomy enough. Interior fit and finish is impeccable, but the controls are confusing. The stop/start feature shuts the engine off at idle to save fuel but is slow to restart at times; luckily it can be disabled. A 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 is also available. Reliability has improved to average.
