In the year Porsche introduced its smaller Macan, it didn’t let the newcomer take all the attention from the Cayenne. Instead, Porsche updated the Cayenne to improve its performance, economy, and equipment, as well as freshen up its styling inside and out. The V8 of the Cayenne S has been replaced by a turbocharged V6, its power rated at 420 hp. The Turbo gains 20 hp for 520 hp from its turbocharged 4.8-liter V8, Porsche shelving both the GTS and Turbo S Cayennes until 2016.
The new-for-2015 plug-in S E-Hybrid enables somewhat limited, battery-only propulsion. Like the entire Cayenne range, the plug-in model gets freshened exterior styling to sharpen its looks, while Porsche has busied itself tweaking the Cayenne’s dynamics to retain its position as the best-driving SUV on the market. There are a dizzying choice of options, none of which are cheap, but not even the comparatively small interior and luggage space seem to deter customers from buying Porsche’s biggest SUV.
