Editor's Overview

With the ability to dash to 60 mph in less than five seconds, the Porsche Cayenne is as much a sports car as it is an SUV. Pure driving pleasure is the top priority for this family hauler, so the fact that it can carry up to five passengers and piles of gear is simply icing on the cake.

Report Receipt Date:

Summary:
