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.

Trim: S

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

Engine: 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.
