2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS 4dr SUV AWD (4.8L 8cyl 6M)
Was surprised how good the ride, comfort, and build quality was. With winter tires, handles great in snow. My cousin who just bought a BMW 3 series, took it for a hard drive and couldn't stop talking about fun it was to drive. If only I didn't have to fill the tank every other day. Get the dynamic chassis control option if you can; worth all the pennies.
Dynamic Chassis control. It is a different feeling when you can turn such a massive vehicle on a dime and your body doesn't roll one bit. It makes the car truly special and unique. Well worth the extra cost.
Manual shifter is above average. Improved gas mileage; maybe hybrid. A little less weight while retaining the same feel. The navigation screen is mounted low and not comfortable to view.
