Porsche has offered its diesel SUV in markets since 2009, but the Cayenne has been held out of the mix in favor of a range of gas-powered and a gas-electric hybrid. As Porsche’s diesel car in the United States did sell some diesel in the United States back in the the Cayenne diesel represents short of a sea change for the German maker. For U.S. customers, the provides a serious alternative to utes offered by Mercedes-Benz.

Unless your demands the adrenaline rush of a Turbo, the new Cayenne diesel serious consideration for those the luxury SUV market. The diesel premium is minimal, while the in fuel economy and power are If you can’t get your head the idea of Porsche and diesel in the sentence, then just that not too long ago we were with the idea of Porsche and SUV and that seems to have out OK.
