Fine handling and strong performance are the Cayenne's big strengths, but it's also a practical SUV capable of meeting the family's needs. The best version is the Cayenne S, because the Turbo and hybrid models are a little less nimble. It's not that well equipped, though, there's no seven-seat option, and you need to put up with a firmer ride than a BMW X5 or Range Rover Sport.get the best price
The standard model comes with a 12.0in infotainment screen fitted with sat-nav, a DAB radio and Apple CarPlay. 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’ll probably still end up 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 matches a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine with an electric motor. You can accelerate (softly) up to 84mph on electric power alone, and drive for up to 27 miles 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.
