Consumption & performance

Porsche’s engine, drive and performance are entirely attributed to the concentration on creating a sports-performance SUV. With this in mind, the Cayenne is a perfect embodiment of the ingenuity and innovation in Porsche’s engineering. The vehicle comes with 5 on-road driving modes, and electrically operable anti-roll bars and rear-wheel steering. Consequently, this provides a top of the line standard of grip and performance.

The vehicles at entry level come equipped with a 3litre V8 turbo-charged engine with 335bhp. The model variant Cayenne S comes at a slightly lower capacity of 2.9litres, but with a second turbocharger for an overall stronger vehicle.

Cayenne Turbo models come with a V8 engine and 4.0litre engine, being the powerful flagship model variant in the series.

The Porsche Cayenne is a relatively high maintenance car, this relative to its immense power and significant weight. The high-performance SUV requires besides the regular fuel expense a regular maintenance, and costly consumable parts. Moreover, it is significantly costly to insure. It is however not unlikely to resell the vehicle as the entry level models depreciate relatively slower than most SUVs.
