Porsche is continuing to blast ahead with its sporty SUVs, the latest being their largest, this 2019 Porsche Cayenne. Now we’ve already driven the Turbo and E-Hybrid versions… so this is the base model… but it’s hardly a compromise for those who need lots of room… and want that Porsche experience behind the wheel. 

And it certainly delivered on our first drive in Northern California. For this 3rd generation, the new 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 creates a healthy 335 horsepower… matched with a new smooth shifting 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission. Steering is sports-car precise… and even more agile with its rear axle steering. And for the first time… staggered “tires” add even more of Porsche’s sporty heritage.

The Cayenne is steady and stable through the curves… with great grip front and rear. Adding the updated air suspension offers the best combination of ride and handling. 

Plenty of Panamera influences inside… like the 12-point-3-inch touch screen. Porsche Connect Plus brings more tech to the driver oriented cabin. And all these updates to the 2019 Porsche Cayenne roll on a new lighter chassis… helping this nimble sporty ute…drive like a Porsche more than ever before. Dealers have them now, starting at under $66,000.
