Edmunds' Expert Review
Senior Vehicle Test Editor
Kurt Niebuhr has worked in the automotive industry since 2005. A automotive photographer by trade, Kurt is now one of Edmunds' high-performance test drivers. He's driven and photographed hundreds, if not thousands, of vehicles all over the world, so Kurt's library of automotive experiences would certainly make for a good book. When not dreaming about getting his racing license or trying to buy out-of-date film for his cameras, Kurt can usually be found cursing at his 1966 Mustang.
- Truly impressive handling for a crossover SUV
- Wide selection of powerful engines available
- Exquisite interior and build quality
- Plenty of customization options
- Quite a few optional features should be standard given the price tag
- Gloss-black interior panels can look dirty almost immediately
- Poor rear visibility
- Fans are weak at low speeds and too noisy at high speeds
- Completely redesigned and restyled
- More powerful engines
- New and improved E-Hybrid model
- This is the first year of the third-generation Cayenne
The 2019 Porsche Cayenne has been redesigned from front to back and now bears more of a resemblance to the 911 than ever before. Power from every available engine has been increased and there's a new Cayenne E-Hybrid, which replaces last year's S E-Hybrid. Porsche has also managed to make the Cayenne weigh less than the previous year.

Avg. Midsize SUV
Inside, the Cayenne sees an updated interior, complete with a 12.3-inch touchscreen for control over most of the SUV's systems. It's very similar to the one found in the current Panamera. The instrument panel, too, has been updated with two 7-inch multifunction digital displays. The cargo area has been made larger for 2019, too.
Of course, Porsche still provides a myriad of personalization options for every Cayenne. Combinations can seem almost endless and include a wide variety of colors, wheels, interior materials and performance-related upgrades. But all of these options can send the price straight into orbit.
As well-rounded as the Porsche Cayenne may be, there are some drawbacks to keep in mind. We consider the rear seat and cargo area to be adequate, but other SUVs in the class offer more room. And some features, which are standard on competitors, are pricey options on the Cayenne. But we've always been fans of the Porsche Cayenne, and with the improvements Porsche has made to the 2019 model, we see no reason to change our opinion.
Notably, we picked the 2019 Porsche Carenne as one of Edmunds' Best Luxury SUVs for this year.
Edmunds' Expert Rating8.1 / 10
Redesigned for 2019, the Porsche Cayenne has something for everybody. It's an SUV renowned for its performance potential, yet it's also luxurious and easy to drive. Engines start with a V6 and range all the way up to a wildly powerful twin-turbo V8. And there's even a hybrid.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Porsche Cayenne w/ Air Suspension and 21-inch wheels (turbo 3.0L V6 | 8-speed automatic | AWD).
|Overall||8.1 / 10|
Large SUVs aren't expected to feel so quick, but when that SUV wears a Porsche badge, it's assumed. The Cayenne unspools steady streams of power from any double-digit speed and has seemingly endless grip in curves. The steering is heavier than a family SUV requires, and only the brakes feel less than seamless.
The Cayenne accelerates without effort, swifter than you'd think possible of a 4,700-pound SUV. It's not a pin-you-to-your-seat kind of speed, but rather steady and robust for passing and a raging gallop when you really need it. Flooring the pedal from a stop produces some lag, but the Cayenne still makes the 0-60 mph sprint in 5.3 seconds.
The pedal feels firm, but the pedal action is longer than we'd expect of a Porsche. It also doesn't transmit much feel, so it takes a bit of familiarization before you can accurately judge your input. Our test sample executed a panic stop from 60 mph in just 106 feet at our track, an impressively short distance for a large SUV, even if it was aided by expensive optional tires.
The steering is almost unnecessarily heavy and resistant at lower speeds, but that's part of the bargain with Porsche. Some drivers will like it. We think it's heavy for heavy's sake, especially in what is essentially a family SUV. The effort and feedback make a lot more sense on a winding stretch of road, where the steering imparts a keen sense of control.
The optional wide (and expensive) tires skew the performance here, but the Cayenne's inherent balance is remarkable. This Porsche is the kind of SUV where you can pick a line through a curve and continue to coax power from the throttle without inducing any noticeable body roll. It's about as controlled as it gets.
The throttle feels well-calibrated. It's easy to dial in precise amounts of speed and just as easy to back off without the transmission getting jumpy. Selectable drive modes are offered, but you'll only ever need Sport on the street. (Comfort is comparatively dull and Sport Plus is high-strung.)
The adjustable chassis height and four terrain modes that optimize traction and throttle settings give the Cayenne legitimate off-road ability absent in many of its rivals. And that's before you factor in standard all-wheel drive and up to 9.4 inches of ground clearance from the optional air suspension. It's not a Jeep, but this optional package makes it more capable than its direct rivals.
Porsche's secret sauce for combining athletic and confident handling with a firm and cushy luxury ride quality is on full display in the Cayenne. The standard seats stay comfortable over long distances for a range of body types. There's some noise but little vibration. But you'll want to keep a hand fan within reach. Hot and cool air dribbles weakly through the vents at low fan speeds.
The seats are a fairly generic shape but quite comfortable with firm cushioning, moderate thigh bolstering and thigh extenders. Some of our test drivers, however, wished for more lateral support under hard cornering. Lumbar support can get pretty aggressive if you need it to.
The air suspension absorbs bumps with quick, tight compression. The ride is firm but not hard, jarring or shaky. It's more like tight and controlled. Its quickness and responsiveness soak up road rash, too. Porsche expertly manages the trick of combining the sort of firm, controlled ride that conveys sportiness with excellent comfort.
Noise & vibration7.5
There's a bit more ruckus than you might expect of a Porsche, mostly wind noise, followed by white noise fizz from the road. However, it's not enough to impede a conversation at normal voice levels, and it's negated somewhat by the satisfying engine and exhaust noise. The suspension keeps things nicely damped despite the huge wheels, with not much vibration.
The airflow is surprisingly weak at lower settings, but cranking up the fan speed also cranks up the fan noise. This system does not move a lot of air otherwise, but it cools the cabin nicely. A set point of 75 degrees actually feels a bit on the cool side. Seat heaters are a stand-alone option ($530) and work quickly.
A broad range of driving positions and spacious quarters allow the Cayenne to feel either like a proper sports car or a more conventional SUV. It's easy to slide in and out of, even with the rear "stadium-style" seating. The unique exterior shape makes seeing out the rear sides a challenge, though.
Ease of use7.5
The center console buttons and functions have haptic feedback. The knurled dials, rocker and roller-type controls are nice, but some are placed awkwardly and tightly in front of the gear selector. And these are redundant controls; most drivers will default to the steering wheel controls.
Getting in/getting out8.0
Getting in or out is easy at the vehicle's standard height and even easier when you lower the body via the adjustable suspension. The relatively low seat bolsters make it easy to slide into and out of the seats. The doorsills are narrow enough not to provide an impediment, but the rear seats are perched slightly higher on a raised platform.
There's a wide range of seat adjustment, whether you like to sit low, sports-car style, or perched high in conventional SUV style. The power-adjustable steering column also means anyone can find a comfortable, confident driving position.
The wide, straight and horizontal instrument panel feels almost like the cabin of a small aircraft, but the dashtop is angled down and creates a nice visual space. A broad center console creates some distance between the driver and the passenger. There's plenty of elbow room in front and back and ample rear legroom and headroom, too, even for 6-foot-tall or taller riders.
An expansive windshield and angled dashtop offer a good view of the hood, which in turn gives a good sense of the space around the front side fenders. But the comically thick rear pillars interfere with visibility to the rear sides. And blind-spot monitoring isn't included here either.
Build quality is excellent all around as you might expect from Porsche. The interior handles and surfaces feel rock-solid, and the knobs and switches have a confident heft. Detail worth noting: the window seals. They open and close with a damped quality and tight seal that no doubt helps keep plenty of outside noise at bay.
Cargo space is on the low side, and interior storage is a mixed bag, but there's enough here to give the Cayenne real daily usefulness. A 40/20/40-split folding rear seat boosts versatility, and the optional air suspension comes in handy to lower the load floor height for large and bulky items. It isn't a cheap option but worth it for heavy cargo users.
The center console is large and bulky but not especially roomy. There's enough space for a couple of wallets and phones but not much else. A phone cubby and two cupholders with anti-tip claws sit behind the gear selector, and the door pockets offer molded spaces wide enough for medium-size bottles.
The Cayenne's 60.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo space isn't exceptional — some compact crossovers offer more. But the shape is useful, and the netting helps make use of the wheelwell space. The adjustable air suspension can drop the load height, making it easier to load heavy or bulky items, but it's a pricey option.
Child safety seat accommodation8.0
Standard Isofix anchors are easy to access at the base of the rear seat cushions but are nicely hidden out of the way behind plastic tabs. The upper anchors are easily located on the rear seatbacks, and there's enough room for large rear-facing seats to fit without impinging on the comfort of front-seat occupants.
Like the last-generation model, this Cayenne can tow up to 7,713 pounds, a pretty stout number for a turbo V6-powered SUV. The hitch package comes with a seven-pin wiring socket and is pre-wired for any electric trailer brake controller you may want to add.
Redesigned infotainment is a highlight of this refreshed Cayenne, and the wide touchscreen is the centerpiece. It's one of the best interfaces in the class, easy and intuitive to use and highly configurable. A more extensive range of voice commands, the addition of Android Auto, and at least some basic standard driver assistance features would make the system even better.
Audio & navigation9.0
The widescreen 12-inch touchscreen display is excellent, with crisp map colors and graphics and a customizable home screen using drag-and-drop tile icons. Keep microfiber towels on hand, though; finger smudges collect and show up quickly. The standard 10-speaker audio system sounds fine but distorts as volume increases. Serious music lovers will want the optional Bose or Burmester upgrade.
Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay come standard, but Android Auto is still absent. Controlling smartphone features through the Cayenne's native PCM system is easy and seamless enough, though.
The automatic emergency braking comes standard, but most everything else — blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, parking sensors, adaptive cruise — are options. It's unsurprising given Porsche's traditional sales model, but we think that blind-spot warning should come standard given the Cayenne's poor rear-side visibility.
The native system responds well to normal speech patterns, but it offers a fairly narrow range of commands for controlling audio sources, routing navigation or placing calls. The voice button can be held to break through to Siri on an iPhone, but Android users will lament the absence of Android Auto's similarly expansive voice commands.
Which Cayenne does Edmunds recommend?
If we're able to put our high-performance urges aside, the Cayenne S offers an excellent balance of performance, luxury and affordability. While it lacks the outright pace of the Turbo and even the E-Hybrid, we like its subtle styling, feature content and ample performance.
2019 Porsche Cayenne models
The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is a five-passenger midsize SUV available in four trim levels: base, S, E-Hybrid and Turbo. These trim levels mainly differ by what engine is under the hood, though they do typically include a few extra features with each step up as well. All come with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The base Cayenne is nothing to sneeze at, with plenty of performance coming from its turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine (335 horsepower, 332 lb-ft). Nineteen-inch wheels are standard, as are LED headlights, partial leather seats and a 12.4-inch touchscreen, among other features.
The Cayenne S comes with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine (434 hp, 406 lb-ft), different 19-inch wheels, an adaptive suspension — dubbed Porsche Active Suspension Management, or PASM — tinted taillights and a panoramic roof.
The E-Hybrid is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine aided by an electric motor (455 hp, 516 lb-ft combined). A plug-in hybrid, the E-Hybrid can drive about 27 miles on all-electric power before the gas engine switches on. It adds PASM and the Sport Chrono package as standard equipment.
The Turbo replaces the V6 engine with a twin-turbo V8 engine (541 hp, 561 lb-ft). Over and above the standard Cayenne, the turbo includes upgraded front sport seats, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive LED headlights, an air suspension with PASM, upgraded brakes, front and rear heated seats, and a 14-speaker Bose audio system.
Many features that come standard on upper trim levels can be ordered as stand-alone options. Indeed, like other Porsches, the Cayenne is one of the most customizable vehicles you can buy.
Then you've got even more choices from a dizzying options list. It starts with two main packages — Premium and Premium Package Plus — and then goes to a huge list of stand-alone choices. All serve to enhance the Cayenne's performance, technology and audio, comfort, safety, and exterior and interior style. All for a price, of course.

2019 Cayenne Hybird, so close, yet so far away...
2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 8A)
This is my third Porsche. My other two cars right now are a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Diesel and a 981 Boxster S (manual). The car was leased new and has around 600 miles on it so these are initial impressions. Lets address the pros first. The car is very fast and handles exceptionally well. When is Sport or Sport + the car accelerates faster than my Boxster S (or at least … feels that way) and handles the curves superbly well. The seats are comfortable and there is a lot of room in the back seat. The battery gives you about 20 miles of range on fully electric which is speedy enough to get you around short errands easily. Now for the cons. First, my vehicle had an MSRP of around $91K so pretty basic trim. Premium package plus the ventilated seats. But this is still $91K! I compare that against what I got in my Jeep Grand Cherokee (~$45K) and the value is simply not there (even for a Porsche). Second, the are some pretty bad fit and finish quality issues. The paint is a joke and will scratch and get holes it in as if it were Play Doh. It also has an area where it looks like the paint dripped. How this got through quality control in Bratislava is concerning. I've toured the factory in Stuttgart and it wouldn't have gotten through those guys. I had to get ceramic coating because the paint is so bad and its a lease! There are also panels inside the car that do not align well (e.g., A pillar). Finally, I hear rattles with certain radio songs (at moderate volume) and it just doesn't seem as well put together as the JGC when going over bumps which is nuts to say about a Porsche. Third, with the government subsidy the e-hybrid is the one to get over the S but if I were buying and not leasing I'd get the base. The hybrid tech is truly amazing (good job to the engineers), its hard to tell when the vehicle goes from electric to gas. However, if I were planning on owning (as opposed to leasing) I'd worry long-term about the impact of the hybrid drive and power train on the engine. The car needs to engage the ICE engine at any time (even if cold) and it will constantly need to go back and forth which is a lot for any engine to handle. The range of 20 very limiting and once its over, you don't have the speed anymore (just the weight). Overall, if you want an electric car, get a Tesla Porsche is just not there yet and the uncertainty of long-term residuals is too much to buy vs. lease. Plus the tech is changing at an exponential rate. Fourth: Porsche, please go pick up a 2014-2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee and make it a required course for the folks who design your ergonomics. I've had Jeep, Toyota, Nissan, MB, and other Porsches and this is the worst ergonomic design I've ever seen. Simple things like being able to select previous track on the steering wheel, hang grocery bags in the back seats (or rear), and ability to easily control music are impossible in the new Cayenne. The controls look great but I think this car is a step back in this respect relative to the previous generation. Fifth: The Bose Stereo system is not great. I have a lot of Bose products (e.g., headphones, speakers, stereo in Boxster) and this one is just not as good. It sounds only slightly better than the system in my JGC. I've tried every setting combination, multiple different sources, and even Tidal which streams at more than CD quality. Its just not a great system. Having owned a couple of other Porsches, this doesn't feel of the same quality. Frankly it doesn't feel special. I think they need to bring the production back to Germany ASAP. Will report back after a few months.

3rd time is a charm
DM Taylor, 12/29/2019
2019 Porsche Cayenne 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
This is my 3rd Porsche. Previously owned a Boxster S and traded in a 2015 Macan S for the base 2019 Cayenne. Have put 4,000 miles on it over five months. Picked it over a Panamera. Likes are the interior which is the most comfortable and elegant I have seen. Actually prefer the Cayenne’s ZF transmission over the PDK in the Macan! The Macan was always sluggish to get the turbo to spin … up. I always felt the programming was off. The handling and acceleration are top shelf. Reliability has been bulletproof and the Biscayne Blue get s many compliments Dislikes: The Macan could scroll through my favorite radio stations using the thumb ball on the steering wheel, and also adjust volume. Can’t do that on the Cayenne. Macan also displayed the speed limit on the dash. Again missing from Cayenne. I have completely given up on using my foot to get the rear to open. It has never worked for me, and when the dealer tried it, most of the time they couldn’t get it to open either.

2019 Porsche Cayenne - The Real Deal
2019 Porsche Cayenne 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
We were shopping for a new vehicle and narrowed it down to three vehicles: BMW X5, Range Rover HSE Sport, or a Porsche Cayenne. There is no comparison. The Porsche Cayenne is the best. X5 is nice, but cheap feeling interior and not very comfortable. RR Sport just does not have the quality fit, finish, and mechanical dependability. The Porsche Cayenne is a work of art that is quite … functional as well. My wife is in love with her new Cayenne! Update (7-28-20) Still love the Cayenne. Had a few more issues with car than I thought we should have. Replaced all taillights for issues with edges of lights, software issues, and waiting 9 months for a new gas tank as it is making noise when idling for more than a minute or so. Update (2/14/21) Very disappointed in Porsche. Replaced the gas tank in late 2020 only to have the same "rattling noise" in fuel tank. At the time, they claimed "mine was the only one". After some research, Porsche has a TI or Technical Information bulletin out stating that they do not have a fix and it affects all years 2019-2021. Porsche is still selling this vehicle even though it has a known issue for which they have no solution. The arrogance of this manufacturer is unbelievable. Imagine selling a car with a know problem that they cannot fix. Disgraceful.

Awesome to drive
2019 Porsche Cayenne S 4dr SUV AWD (2.9L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Love driving this car. Only problem is the squeaking when breaking at low speeds. I’ve owned RR sport and q7 and after driving this there really is no comparison.
2019 Porsche Cayenne videos
[MUSIC PLAYING] CARLOS LAGO: Right here is the all new third generation Porsche Cayenne. We've come all the way to Greece to drive it. But before we do that, let's talk about what's different between this version and the previous generation. Up front you have new headlights for the new character and the lights. You'll see more and more headlights of this style across Porches as they come out. But the big difference is this wide grill that runs almost the entire width of the body. But this visual appearance is something that makes it feel a bit wider than the previous model. You also might not notice until you look up close is the Cayenne now has staggered wheels. The front wheel and tire are a little bit smaller than the rear wheels. You have a light bar that now runs across the entire of the rear. That's something that you would see on the 911 Carrera 4, and it's a nice little design element that brings some cohesion across the Porsche brand. And, of course, this is the turbo so it gets unique exhaust pipes-- [CAR ENGINE] --and up around 540 horsepower. So we're inside the new Cayenne Turbo. Of course, we're driving the Turbo model, because who could say no to 540 or 550 odd horsepower? The first thing you notice is, of course, the acceleration. There's a ton of it. This thing delivers power very quickly-- immediately when you crack the throttle-- and it's very satisfying. The second thing that's really impressive about this particular Cayenne is the steering. There's an immediate sensation of rotation that comes from the vehicle when you start cracking the wheel. But the real thing I've noticed with driving this Cayenne is the nimbleness that Porsche has managed to find in what effectively is a large SUV-- a large, powerful, and heavy SUV. There's just an eagerness that the Cayenne displays as soon as you turn the wheel. It feels very satisfying. Not a lot of feedback coming from the road itself, but the control you get through the steering wheel feels really good. Now, there's a couple of things that could be helping that. This vehicle-- this Turbo-- is optioned with rear wheel steering that's going to turn the rear wheels in and out of phase with the front wheels depending on the speed you're going which can help you turn in tightly like we just did there or keep you stable at high speeds. We've also got a Torque Vectoring Plus system on this vehicle that's selectively overdriving the outside rear wheel to help the thing rotate in corners. Now, one of the reasons I appreciate this nimbleness is because we're driving this car in Greece and their roads are basically a lane and a half wide and don't have center markings on them. And as we've been going pretty quick, it's been I feel like I can put this vehicle exactly where I want it to be in each corner. That's something you don't expect from an SUV so it's nice when it delivers that. Of course, this is a Porsche so there is a higher expectation on the sports car-like behavior. And so far it feels like the Cayenne is delivering that experience quite handily. But the road quality gives us a chance to talk about the suspension. All the Cayennes we've been driving so far have the optional air suspension. And when you take it out of sport mode-- like I'm going to do right now-- the ride does calm down appreciably. It feels like a very smooth riding vehicle. And that's impressive because all the cars we've been driving have 20 inch or 21 inch wheels. That's a lot of wheel to be moving around and a lot of weight to be moving around and controlling. But this air suspension-- this adaptive air suspension-- seems to do a really good job on rough roads like this one. Another thing I've noticed driving this car so far is how quiet it is. We have optional acoustic and thermally treated glass. And right now it's doing a great job of eliminating a lot of the wind buffeting, exhaust sound, and other exterior unpleasantness that you would not want to hear in a luxury car. It's a very quiet experience inside this vehicle and that's nice because this is also a luxury car with a luxury price tag. The vehicle we're driving right now is optioned up to about $155,000. A lot of money but you're also getting a lot of car for that money. We should also talk about some of the brake options. You have the normal breaks like you would on any standard vehicle. And then there's this carbon ceramic brakes-- like you'd expect from a Porsche sports cars-- but in between there's a tungsten carbide coated brake option. Now, what that is there's a coating on the brakes that helps them last longer, provide more braking force, and reduce brake dust. And Porsche says they should last longer than the standard brakes. So hopefully the ownership costs won't be as long either. A lot of the stuff that's come from the most recent Panamera has looked really nice and worked really well. Down here at the bottom there touch sensitive controls for most of the vehicles functions and when you touched them there's a little haptic response, or a little feedback, that you get in the form of a vibration. It works generally well, of course I would prefer real buttons but this is what you get. The only downside I can think of so far is that this piano black finish is going to attract all kinds of fingerprints, smudges, and hairs and oil and stuff. So you want to keep some kind of cloth with you if you want to keep that clean. With this being the twin-turbo V8 you would expect massive performance out of the Turbo model. The base model and the S-- which use V6s-- the base model has a single turbocharger, the S has a twin turbocharged engine. Both of those supply decent acceleration too. You'd probably be totally fine with the base model, although the GPS is a little bit faster-- as you would expect from having 100 horsepower more. That turbo is just ridiculous in terms of acceleration. But again, that's what happens when you have 500 plus horsepower. Cayenne's nimbleness is quite an accomplishment but that's kind of what we expect from Porsche these days. This is a company that keeps making extraordinarily high performing vehicles that have less than 400 horsepower. So they keep setting the bar for themselves. And they keep overcoming it. This being a large SUV, it's important to talk about things that may not be as exciting as horsepower. There's plenty of head, leg, shoulder room in both front and rear seats. The optional sports seats have the head rest integrated into the seat back-- kind of like what you would expect out of a sports car-- but they don't seem to affect the rear seating space at all. It's pretty comfortable back there-- at least for the outboard seats. There's little bit more cargo capacity in the back as well. So if you're concerned about hauling a bunch of stuff there's a solution there. One of the other features improving the handling on this vehicle is an active anti-roll system. While previous Cayennes used a hydraulic actuated system, this one is electronically controlled by the 48-volt system that Cayenne now has. What does that mean? Well, it means it works and you can't really feel it working. You just notice the vehicle stays flat in corners and stays pretty smooth on the road because that would be the advantage of adjusting the anti-roll. Where it doesn't work when you're going straight but it works when you're in the corners. But you can tell that it's working because there's a little display in the gauge cluster here that tells you, hey you're getting some active anti-roll here and some here and here. But other than that you just notice that this vehicle just handles really well. As far as performance goes the base Cayenne Porsche says will do zero to 60 in the high fives. And the S and Turbo models will do zero to 60 a second faster than each. So you have high fours and high threes. That's a lot of performance, especially out of the Turbo vehicle. But hey, again, it's a Porsche. Overall this first impression of the Cayenne is a very good one. And we're eager to test it more once it shows up on our shores in some time next year-- like July or something. [MUSIC PLAYING] Well, thank you for watching.
