As a single dad, I had resigned myself to the necessity (and boredom) of driving your standard SUV. Thank goodness for the Cayenne. It has plenty of room for the field hocky sticks and gear, yet when Dad wants to recall his younger years, the performance is great. The styling is sophisticated for a night on the town but not over done. The acceleration and handling are truly like a sports car with the practicality and benifits of an SUV thrown in. This has been a great vehicle which has been exceptionably reliable.
