The Cayenne Turbo keeps your V8, but he’s 37 and 20 HP extras more pound-feet of torque from this year. More had tuned performance Turbo S and GTS trims a year model. They will return to the 2016 along with the base model.

Interior of the shows its age a little Cayenne on the standard 7-inch diagonal touchscreen, a modest extension compared to the flashy screen systems found in some rivals (X 5, for example). The menu structure is simple, however, and the system is fast to process entries. Center console can seem overwhelming at first with its more than 50 buttons, but the more time you spend in the driver’s seat, most will appreciate the logic of the project. As in all Porsche today, that center console rises dramatically to fulfill the script, creating an environment of steady driving, as jet fighter that emphasizes the sporty character of the Cayenne.

Do you feel capable of so it is more than capable, period. Is a feeling that is not present on the smaller Macan, which feels more like a Porsche philosophy behind the wheel.
Although the Cayenne travel is never what we call Teddy, is flexible and sophisticated and the air suspension improves compliance. And while the Cayenne 2015 is not advertised as a hallway full of desert, is still very capable in situations short of end of the road.
Under the hood, the changes to the year 2015 has left the Cayenne with four ACEs in his hand. The V6 engine guttural explores the line and returns the big fuel, while the turbo V6 ‘s liner is faster and more efficient than the V8 it replaces. Hybrid and S, meanwhile, almost nothing the regular in terms of performance, and adds the flexibility of pure electrical autonomy for quick trips. Once the Turbo is faster and crazier than ever. You really can’t go wrong here. Read : Best Crossover 2015 : Mazda CX-5 SUV
