Benefits of Driving a 2010 Porsche Cayenne Sport Utility

The 2010 Porsche Cayenne appeals to people who want a nimble, high-performance SUV that features the kind of driving experience expected of Porsche, combined with the ability to tow a trailer or take on rough terrain.

What's new for 2010?

Big news for the 2010 Porsche Cayenne line is the addition of a new gas/electric hybrid version as well as a limited edition S Transsyberia model. The hybrid is what Porsche calls a 'full hybrid,' which means it can run on either one of its two power sources independently or together, depending on driving needs. The gas engine is a direct-injected 3.0L Audi V6, which is joined by an electric drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission, and Porsche claims the combination delivers 385 horsepower and 25% better fuel economy than a regular V6-equipped Cayenne. The S Transsyberia model features unique exterior styling, available off-road lights, and four additional colors, as well as the 4.8L 405-horsepower engine from the GTS. The GTS sees the addition of new 21-inch wheels and Porsche's Air Suspension Management, which allows the driver to select between sport and comfort modes. The Turbo S also gets new 21-inch wheels and Air Suspension Management, as well as a new exterior color and several new interior styling options.

Model Review

The 2010 Porsche Cayenne is offered in six different models--the base V6, the S, the GTS, the Turbo, the Turbo S and the S Hybrid--each offered with a different powertrain. A 290-horsepower, 3.6L V6 comes with the base model, paired with either a standard 6-speed manual or 6-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission. The S utilizes a 385-horsepower, 4.8L V8, and is available only with Tiptronic S transmission. The GTS squeezes 405 horsepower from the 4.8, with the 6-speed manual as standard and Tiptronic S available. The Turbo and Turbo S make use of the 4.8 as well, but it's fed by twin turbochargers. The Turbo's engine makes 500 horsepower, while the Turbo S churns out 550. The new S Hybrid pairs a 3.0L V6 with a battery-powered electric motor to make a combined 385 horsepower, can run on either on or both of its power sources, and requires no plug-in charging. It also comes with a new 8-speed automatic transmission, and it maximizes mileage by using electric motors to run accessories such as the power steering, air conditioning, brake booster, and transmission oil pump. It's 310 pounds heavier than a standard base-model Cayenne, including the 88-pound 'Hybrid Manager' computer, which is said to be one of the most powerful units ever fitted to a motor vehicle.
