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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How?

What Owners Say

"By a wide margin best handling vehicle ever driven"

PAUL F., NC (2016 Porsche Cayenne)

"Car feels kind of "heavy" on the road. Does not maneuver as well as I would like, would rate it as average."

MONTE F., FL (2016 Porsche Cayenne)

"It is an S model and unlike many large SUVs it drives like a large sports car"

Anonymous, CA (2016 Porsche Cayenne)

"Took awhile to break in and had problems with hesitation up to e seconds when accelerating after a ninety degree turn. Worked with the dealership in addressing the issue. Found i had to start braking with my right foot which helped alleviate the problem. Still experiencing hesitation occasionally. Have over 9200 miles on it and found it generally very responsive and smooth driving."

LEE D., FL (2016 Porsche Cayenne)

"Great handling and acceleration, good ride, very comfortable seats, a little noisy"

Anonymous, GA (2016 Porsche Cayenne)

"Great acceleration, braking and handling. Safety features like the blind spot detection, and back up camera are great additions. Lots of leg room in front and back."

BOB B., NH (2016 Porsche Cayenne)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seats not cl.fortable"

Anonymous, NY (2016 Porsche Cayenne)

"Best seats and HVAC i have ever experienced. Averaging between 25-27MPG on interstate driving with a fully load and two passengers. Gas tank holds 26 gallons allowing a range of 550-600 miles between gas stops. Handling is best i have experienced in a SUV. Fit and finish is superb. Excellent gauges and ease of use."

If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
