Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

You might be swayed by the fact the entry-level version of the Porsche Cayenne Coupé has a lower list price than the cheapest Audi Q8 or Range Rover Sport, but, over three years, the Q8 is predicted to hold on to more of its value. That means the Cayenne Coupé's PCP finance rates aren't usually any more impressive than its rivals, especially when you consider that Porsche, unlike Range Rover and Audi, doesn't do discounts.

All the regular petrol models occupy the top 37% bracket for benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax, making them very expensive to run as company cars. The low CO2 emissions of the E-Hybrid variants could slash your company car tax bills.

Equipment, options and extras

Beyond the infotainment system and visibility aids (parking sensors, LED headlights lights, etc), you don’t get a huge amount of standard equipment in the Cayenne, Cayenne S or E-Hybrid.

For example, while you get some luxuries, including cruise control, heated front seats, two-zone climate control, keyless start, power-folding door mirrors, 19in or 20in alloy wheels and a powered tailgate, that's not an overwhelming tally relative to the competition. In fact, it leaves you paying extra for many niceties, such as adaptive cruise control and keyless entry.

Overview

As with the regular Cayenne, the biggest strengths of the Coupé are its handling and performance. In fact, the GTS, which is the sweet-spot in the range, offers about as much fun as you can have with a car that's this tall and heavy. And, while the Cayenne Coupé is not as practical as its squarer stablemate, it will still meet the needs of most families.

  • Powerful engines
  • Fantastic handling for a big SUV
  • Classy interior
  • Expensive to run
  • Stingy kit list
  • Pricey air suspension option is a must
