Overview of the Porsche Cayenne

Learn about the Porsche Cayenne

Summary

High-quality, luxurious SUVs are becoming more common on Canada's roads. The Porsche Cayenne is a popular option for those seeking a sizable but good-looking vehicle. You can choose between three engine types depending on your preference: V-6, V-8 or a hybrid engine. If you choose a gasoline engine, you'll enjoy impressive performance but lose out in terms of fuel economy. Though highly customizable, not as many options as you would expect come as standard for a vehicle at this price point. Overall, the Porsche Cayenne stands out with impressive handling, power, and design and build quality.

Safety

Porsche Cayennes generally come equipped with an abundance of safety features. You can easily find a 2012 with the following features as standard:

  • Front, side and rear airbags, ensuring you're protected from every direction
  • Emergency brake assist to aid with sudden stops
  • Remote anti-theft alarm system, which triggers when the door is opened
  • Child safety locks and child seat anchors

The Cayenne also comes with some unique visibility features not commonly found in other vehicles, such as dusk sensing headlamps, front fog lights and a high-intensity headlamp. All models come with four-wheel antilock disc brakes and stability control to help keep the car from skidding on slippery surfaces.

Interior

The Porsche Cayenne has a truly premier interior. From the high-quality build materials to the intuitive layout, every inch of the cabin feels as though it was built with care. It comes with a standard fabric interior, or you can upgrade to leather. There is an impressive number of colour combinations for the interior: black, grey, beige, espresso, saddle brown, cream and garnet red. The standard cabin is equipped with electric windows, heated front seats and air conditioning. Heated seats in the rear are optional for all models 2014 and later.   

Technology

All of the standard technology features drivers and passengers might expect in an upscale SUV can be found in the Porsche Cayenne. Starting in 2014, the base model comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, auxiliary input and 10-speaker sound system, while the Cayenne Turbo adds satellite radio, a navigation system and USB connection. Connect your phone to the stereo and play your music through the impressive Bose surround sound system. The most notable technological feature is the large beautiful touchscreen media centre. It comes with Apple/Android Bluetooth connectivity and GPS. In the 2019 model, the touchscreen is a huge 12.3 inches and is accompanied by two full-colour 7-inch instrument panel screens.   

Space

Though cargo space is slightly limited in the Porsche Cayenne, the rear seat bench can be folded down in a 60/40 split to expand the trunk. The cabin of the Porsche Cayenne is very spacious and features ample head and legroom in both the front and back seats. Overall, space in the Cayenne is adequate for its segment.

Comfort

Porsche is known for creating vehicles that feel high-quality, and this SUV does not disappoint. Coming as standard with all-wheel drive the Cayenne grips the road, making for a smooth ride. If passengers choose the V6 or V8 engine, they'll feel the power of the engine under their foot each time they press down on the gas pedal. If they choose the hybrid option, they'll enjoy that same power but in a quieter and more environmentally friendly package.
