The midsized Cayenne is one of the most agile SUVs on the market. It packs genuine Porsche DNA into its driving characteristics with communicative steering and responsive brakes that feel direct and precise. Even when it's asked to carve its way around a racetrack, the Cayenne remains in its element. And yet, it's also a luxurious and functional SUV with ample passenger and cargo room.
