Porsche will always be inextricable from the 911. But it isn’t this storied sports car that makes the company one of the world’s most profitable car makers; it’s the Macan and Cayenne SUVs.

The larger of the pair is entering its third era. The new Cayenne has the manifesto of being faster, better to drive, more practical and plusher than its already very accomplished predecessor.

To achieve this, it’s based on a larger yet lighter chassis and all variants are more potent. The entry-level model gets a 335bhp petrol V6, the S a 434bhp turbo V6 and the Turbo a 542bhp turbo V8. A 456bhp plug-in hybrid is also available and diesels are on their way.

We invited our readers to Porsche’s UK offices to see what they make of the new Cayenne.
