New Porsche Cayenne Turbo Is A Massive Improvement Over Its Predecessor

Despite Porsche claiming that the new Cayenne is more 911-like than ever, you cannot really compare the large SUV with a sports car.

However, that doesn’t mean it isn’t mindbogglingly good, especially in the potent Turbo version, no matter if you’re driving in the city, the motorway, or on a winding backcountry road, as Autocar found in their review.

It’s equipped with some clever new technologies that reduce body roll significantly, and make it more agile going around corners. Porsche allows users to select between various driving modes, which make its suspension either softer or stiffer, and prepare the SUV for gravel, mud, sand, or rocks, but don’t expect to get far on challenging terrains with the stock Pirelli road tires.

Downsizing its engine from 4.8 to 4.0 liters has made the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo less sonorous than the previous model, but throttle response and turbo lag have been improved significantly, and the vehicle is now faster.

550PS (542hp) and 700Nm (568lb-ft) of torque help propel it from 0 to 100km/h (62mph) in just 3.9sec, if the Sport Chrono Package is selected from the options list, and top speed stands at 286km/h (178mph).

Of course, benefiting from its new design, both on the outside and in the cabin, and impressive performance means paying top money: about £100,000 ($132,076) in the United Kingdom for the base Turbo, but spec it with some additional goodies and the price will reach £120,000-£130,000 ($158,491-$171,699).
