Review

As with the regular Cayenne, the biggest strengths of the Coupe are its handling and performance. And, while it’s not as practical as its squarer stablemate, it will still meet the needs of most families.

The standard model comes with a 12.0in infotainment screen fitted with sat-nav, a DAB radio and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring. Other standard features include 19in alloy wheels, LED headlights, cruise control, two-zone climate control, eight-way electric part-leather seats and an electric tailgate. Even so, you should consider raiding the options list for items such as air suspension, heated seats, adaptive cruise control and a more impressive sound system. For the E-Hybrid you get the means to charge your Cayenne through a domestic three-pin plug socket as standard but, amazingly, you have to pay extra to make the charging system compatible with a 7.2kW wall box.

This plug-in hybrid version of the Cayenne Coupe pairs a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine with an electric motor. You can accelerate (softly) up to 83mph on electric power alone, and drive for up to 23 miles in the city (at least officially) before the petrol engine joins in. It’s an impressive collaboration, offering zero-emissions driving in the city while still fulfilling Porsche’s sporting brief elsewhere, but grabby brakes and the extra weight of its batteries detract from the driving pleasure.
