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.

This plug-in hybrid version of the Cayenne combines 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 22 miles before the petrol engine joins in. It’s good to drive for a plug-in, but isn’t as agile as non-Hybrid Cayennes while emissions and economy aren’t particularly impressive for a plug-in hybrid.
