PORSCHE CAYENNE 4x4 S 5dr

Pretty much as quick as the Turbo in real life, yet the best part of £30,000 cheaper, this is our pick of the range - by some way.

Engines

Cayenne E-Hybrid
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.
Cayenne Turbo
This 542bhp monster can accelerate from 0-62mph is just 3.9sec with the optional Sport Chrono Package, thanks to a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. It sounds a little more muted than the S and the heavier engine means it isn’t quite as agile. A bit of an overkill.
Our pick
Cayenne S
An additional turbo means the S model gets 434bhp – enough to knock a second off the 0-62mph time, even though this 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 the one we’d pick.
Cayenne
With a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged V6, the standard Cayenne can still manage 0-62mph in 6.2sec without options. It can sound a little strained near the redline and is pretty thirsty, though.
