Not so long ago, anyone after coupé style had to accept two doors, a low-slung driving position and rear seats that would make an Oompa Loompa feel claustrophobic. However, cars like the Porsche Cayenne Coupé promise SUV practicality in addition to their swoopy rooflines.
The BMW X6 was the model that created this niche, but the Cayenne Coupé also faces competition from the Audi Q8, Lamborghini Urus and Mercedes GLE Coupé, as well as more conventionally shaped but still sporty SUVs such as the Range Rover Sport and indeed the regular Cayenne.
So, just how different is the Coupé? Well, its roof is just 20mm lower, with the steep angle of the rear window and the shape of the side window contributing at least as much to its slinky appearance. However, you do lose some boot space and the Coupé is available in a more indulgent four-seat layout.
Otherwise, there’s a lot of the Cayenne formula that has served so well over the years, securing more than 770,000 sales. But should you add to them and, if so, is the Coupé now the model to choose?
