The Cayenne Coupé is a big SUV so, no matter how tall you are, you should have plenty of head and leg room in the front. And shoulder room is also generous; there’s no risk of you and your front passenger banging elbows.
Wide door bins add to the practicality, as do the selection of other cubbies, which include a good-sized storage space under the front armrest.
This is one area where there’s a noticeable difference between the regular Cayenne and the Coupé, with the latter’s swooping roofline reducing head room. The seat bases are mounted 30mm lower to compensate, but you still might want to think twice about specifying the optional panoramic sunroof if you’ll regularly be carrying tall adults in the back.
Fortunately, leg room remains generous, with a six-footer easily able to fit behind a similarly tall driver. And, while you get four rather than five seats as standard (with a storage tray running between the rear two), you can swap this setup for a more traditional five-seat layout for no extra cost.
The rear door bins aren’t as big as those up front, but you can still fit a 500ml bottle of water in each of them. Plus, there’s an armrest, containing a pair of cupholders, that folds down out of the rear bench.
Seat folding and flexibility
Both the four and five-seat arrangements offer rear seats that can be slid forwards and backwards to prioritise rear leg room or boot volume. What’s more, you can vary the angle of the backrests to improve comfort and the seats fold three ways in a 40/20/40 split.
Like the driver’s seat, the front passenger’s seat is electrically adjustable but doesn't have lumbar support adjustment unless you upgrade to the 14-way powered seats.
This is another area in which there's a difference between the regular Cayenne and the Coupé. The Coupé’s boot is 100 litres smaller, but that still leaves you with a generous space into which you can pack plenty of suitcases or flatpack furniture. It also scores points by being usefully square, although there's a bit of a load lip at the entrance to lift luggage over.
Sadly, if you go for a hybrid model you lose another 100 litres of space, because the batteries sit under the boot floor.
