More than I expected in a SUV
By el415 on
2008 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
You wonder how they do it, other than you being high off of the ground you hardly notice the weight and size of this car.
No it doesn't have Porsche speed, but it's plenty quick for any base luxury SUV. I had a Discovery 2 and a 540i. It really drives a like the 540i, but not as quick, it's very similar to a 528i or an Audi A6 3.0. As to the Disco, the Cayenne is far more nimbler and much more responsive. It's a European sports sedan that's tall, big, and can go off-road (if that's important to you, check out videos on Youtube).
- Handling for an SUV
- "Sports" mode (it feels like the gas pedal grabs onto your foot and pulls it down, it turns into an totally different car! After getting up to a unsafe speed, you look down at the tachometer and you are still only at 3,000 RPM. I can't believe it'll still wants to go!)
- Off-road capabilities
- The cache
- The 1st practical Porsche
- Lots of standard features
