Porsche Cayenne Turbo

is it?

This is the all-new Porsche The Cayenne was the car that broke the for Porsche; its continued success has that there is a bright beyond sports cars for the car maker. Trouble is, the original lacked the styling finesse and quality to see it win universal appeal.

changes to the styling, including a bonnet, added contouring the body sides and a more raked rear screen, it much look less and, dare I say, sporting.

The positive impressions inside. The Panamera-influenced cabin is a beyond the drab cabin of the old providing added class and levels of finish. New, contoured seats also additional support and greater up front, although vision, to the rear three-quarter, is quite

With a 40mm stretch in the over its predecessor, the new Cayenne is and more versatile than A sliding rear seat you to alter rear leg room, and the seat backs now fold in one easy action, either or via an optional electric system, to you extend the nominal 670 litres of space.

When it goes on here, Porsche’s new SUV will be with five different a 300bhp 3.6-litre V6 petrol, a 3.0-litre V6 diesel, a 400bhp V8 petrol, and the combination of a supercharged V6 petrol and electric drive a total of 380bhp in the new Cayenne

The highlight, though, remains the Turbo. Its twin-turbo 4.8-litre V8 is over virtually unchanged the final version of the outgoing With 500bhp and a sturdy ft of torque, it’s got more than many celebrated – and more pace than the old Turbo, according to Porsche’s

Part of the performance gain can be to a new Tiptronic S eight-speed automatic that comes with the of remote shift paddles than the wheel-mounted rocker of the old Cayenne. It provides faster, shifts than the old six-speed while also contributing to a gain in fuel economy and an reduction in CO2 emissions.

At 2170kg, the new Turbo tips the scales a 185kg less than its And its power-to-weight ratio has increased by 20bhp per tonne in the top-of-the-line This gain, the new gearbox and gearing help to lower the time to 4.7sec, and add 2mph to the top at 172mph.

What’s it like?

The really thing about the Cayenne is its to be sports car or luxury cruiser. The air suspension that the Turbo fitted with is an improvement on the springs fitted to the rest of the both in terms of body and isolating occupants from the surface.

At low speeds it can be slightly but at higher speeds on uneven roads or on typical motorway the Turbo is relaxing transport. cabin refinement and a comfortable also goes a long way to the Cayenne a soothing long companion.

And yet, select ‘Sport’ on the converter 8-speed auto and air suspension (both don’t to be selected together) and there are few cars — saloon, or SUV — that offer the precision of the Cayenne Turbo.

isn’t to say that you aren’t aware of the car’s significant shifting around, but the suspension effectively restrains body and so it takes little effort to the Cayenne through high-speed despite its height and dimensions.

The assisted steering is also a revelation compared to the light, detached sensation the previous offered. There is immediate even around the dead-ahead, and the weighting gives an immediacy allows the driver to make the of the prodigious grip levels.

More than anything, it is the new drive system, which 100 per cent of the power to the rear unless the car senses any need for at the front end, that transforms the Cayenne Turbo a rewarding sports car. a completely different experience to the Cayenne, and whatever your on high-powered SUVs, it’s an way to travel.

Should I buy one?

The new is a big improvement, then. But at a hefty the new Cayenne Turbo comes in at above the old model and is £1914 than the BMW X6 M. It’s good – but I help but think the Cayenne S be a smarter buy.
