Best high-end sports SUV

Porsche Cayenne Coupé GTS

Car of the Year 2022 - MotorEasy

If money isn’t really an issue, why should you choose the Porsche Cayenne Coupé GTS over even more exotic sports SUVs such as the Lamborghini Urus? Well, for one thing, the GTS offers exceptional handling, even by the standards of this class. You’ll marvel at how agile it is as you guide it through corners using the perfectly weighted steering, while body lean is tightly contained.

Yet once you’ve finished hooning around, the GTS is remarkably civilised for something so talented in the twisties. As a bonus, it’s not insanely fast in the way that the Urus is. And as odd as it sounds, that really is a good thing; on public roads, you’re too busy watching the speedo to really enjoy the Urus, whereas the GTS lets you savour revving it out, and can still dispatch the 0-62mph sprint in 4.5sec if required. Trust us, that’s more than quick enough.
