2011 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 8A)
My wife loved the new look of the Cayenne so we decided to purchase one. It has been a great vehicle for the time we have owned it. We bought the VR6 model instead of the V8 as the $14k increase in price didn't seem worth it. The performance of the VR6 is everything you could want out of a SUV. Gas mileage is great at around 23mpg during city driving and up to 27 mpg on trip to the airport. If you want a sporty SUV and still have it practical, I don't know if there is a better vehicle on the market for you. I gave it an 8 for performance as the V8 and TT give the ultimate performance. The ride is a little rough but what do you expect with this good of handling.
Updated interior, LCD screen in the instrument cluster, handling, navigation system, 8 spd transmission, brakes, steering, IPod interface.
The VR6 could be smoother, but is acceptable. Needs a clock when using navigation. Larger center console would be nice.
