2018 Porsche Cayenne S review


If it still won’t be easy for everyone to fall for the overall silhouette, Porsche has sharpened the sheetmetal, emboldened the front end with larger air intakes, trimmed some height (9mm) from the roof line, and added some cool details such as the horizontal rear light bar incorporating LED tail-lights.

Sitting on the same MLB Evo architecture as the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga, the Cayenne stretches another 6cm to touch 4.92m (though the 2.9m wheelbase remains unchanged). It pares mass by up to 65kg, however, courtesy of revised construction.

Pricing bulks up slightly for the entire range. Whereas the mid-range Cayenne S we’re testing here was formerly a sub-$145K model, it is now priced from $155,100. That positions it a fair jump over the $116,300 base model, but well below the $239,400 flagship Turbo.
