Third-generation Cayenne starts adding models to the lineup

Sports car performance and poise in an SUV with seating for five, that’s what the Porsche Cayenne provides. There are actually few compromises in return for its performance, with the suspension managing to mix agility and ride comfort, even in the most extreme models. Heading the lineup from 2020 is the Turbo S E-Hybrid, which adds hybrid assist to the Turbo’s already powerful 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 for a combined output of 670 hp. That delivers eye-widening performance, yet it has the ability to run for short periods on battery power alone.

The Turbo S E-Hybrid is perhaps the most extreme example of the Cayenne’s duality, combining a sporting drive with family-friendly practicality. It isn't admittedly as roomy inside the cabin and trunk as many of its rivals, and it's even less so if you pick the Cayenne Coupe, with its sloping rear trunk. But buyers seem won over by its fine driving dynamics, luxurious interior, and the allure of that Porsche badge on the hood.
