How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Cayenne is a big SUV, so it comes as no surprise to find that there’s plenty of room for the loftiest of adults. Even with a space-sucking panoramic roof fitted, there’s ample head room and the front seats go back a fair bit to accommodate long legs. Width, too, is no issue; we doubt any elbows will clash on the wide front armrest.

Seat folding and flexibility

The Cayenne is based on the structure of the Audi Q7 and both models have rear seats that can be slid forwards and backwards to prioritise rear leg room or boot volume. You can also vary the angle of the rear backrest to improve comfort, and the bench splits in three parts, 40/20/40, to allow individual passenger perches to be sacrificed for added luggage space.

The front passenger seat is electrically adjustable but doesn't offer lumbar support adjustment. This feature is added when you upgrade to 14-way powered front seats (These are standard on Turbo models).
