2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

Pros: Excellent handling; powerful engines; nicely finished interior

Cons: Base prices are high and quickly escalate with options; bigger wheels compromise ride

CG Says: Porsche’s midsize 5-passenger SUV is redesigned for 2019, gaining more powerful engines, new styling, and new technology features. The new base engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with 335 horsepower—up 35 hp over the previous naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6. The step-up engine is the S model’s 434-hp 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. The most powerful Cayenne is the Turbo with a 541-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. The E-Hybrid pairs a 3.0-liter turbo V6 with an electric motor for a total of 455 hp—up from the 416-hp rating of the previous hybrid. All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard. Available features include air suspension, 4-wheel steering, tungsten-coated brake rotors, and matrix LED headlights. Available safety features include autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, night vision assist, and adaptive cruise control. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne combines the utility of an SUV with sporting driving experience expected of a Porsche. Prices are high and get higher still with the long list of optional equipment, but for many shoppers only a Porsche Cayenne will do.
