What's the used Porsche Cayenne 4x4 like?

The Porsche Cayenne is a proper Porsche. It performs and handles more like a sports car than any other 4x4, with sharp steering and incredible composure and agility for such a big car.

Down a twisty road, you simply forget you're in a 4x4 rather than a performance car. Despite this impressive showing on-road, it's also very good off-road, although whether you'd really take such an expensive car into the wilds is another question. The only real complaint is a firm ride.

Even from the driver's seat, the car is designed to ape the 911. The view over the bonnet and the dials are all very much the same as in its supercar brother.

Where it differs from the 911 is that it's also quite practical. It may not have the same space as in a BMW X5 or Range Rover Sport, but it's not far off, and the boot is very impressive.
