Review

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.

get the best price

The main thing you pay for here is the more powerful 2.9-litre V6 engine and bigger brakes. You also get different 19in wheels and four round exhaust pipes, but otherwise the kit list is the same as the standard Cayenne Coupé's.

An additional turbo over the entry-level 3.0-litre car means the S model produces 434bhp – enough to knock the 0-62mph time down to 5.0sec, even though its V6 is smaller at 2.9 litres. It’s more expensive to buy but barely any more expensive to run and feels much sportier. With that in mind, it’s a great choice.
