Overview

What's New in the 2020 Porsche Cayenne?

The Cayenne was all-new for the 2019 model year and doesn't add any significant updates for 2020 other than a new "coupe" body style with a sloping rear roofline that looks cool but cuts into cargo space. See the 2020 Porsche Cayenne models for sale near you

Which Cayenne is the Best?

The higher-performance variants of the Cayenne are tempting, but it's hard not to recommend the base model of the Cayenne, which we think offers the best value. For most drivers, the turbocharged flat-six engine in the base model is more than sufficient, but if you really crave stronger performance from your SUV, the S and Turbo models are always there if you have the budget for them. No matter which Cayenne you go with, you're getting one of the sportier offerings in midsize luxury SUVs that's just as at home on a winding canyon road as it is on your everyday commute. Find a Porsche Cayenne for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Porsche Cayenne Cost?

There's quite a bit of variety in the Porsche Cayenne lineup, with each iteration offering its own satisfying blend of performance and luxury. Every Cayenne is a 2-row SUV with five seats with no third row available. A few nice perks that come standard on every trim include AWD, a very customizable 12.3-in infotainment system with navigation, leather seats and much more. The coupe body style is available for every trim except the E-Hybrid.

The base Cayenne ($66,800, Coupe: $75,300) is no slouch. It has a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engine, which makes 335 hp, achieves 0-to-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, and gives the Cayenne a top speed of 152 mph. Standard equipment includes AWD, 19-in wheels, a 12.3-in infotainment system with navigation, a 10-speaker premium audio system, four USB charging ports, LED exterior lighting, two high-resolution displays in the instrument cluster and more.

The Cayenne S ($84,150, Coupe: $88,600) upgrades this SUV with a more powerful 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 434 hp, hustles from 0-to-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 164 mph. As for creature comforts, standard equipment is similar to the base model.

The name of the Cayenne Turbo ($125,850, Coupe: $130,100) might sound redundant considering all Cayennes are turbocharged, but in this case, "Turbo" means a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine under the hood packing 541 hp, a 0-to-60 time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph. This performance model gets upgrades including 21-in wheels, Porsche Surface Coated Brakes, which are optional on the lower trims, a panoramic roof, a Bose 14-speaker surround sound system, a heated steering wheel with paddle shifters, an Alcantara headliner, front and rear heated leather seats and more.

The Cayenne E-Hybrid ($81,100) comes with a hybrid 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that makes 455 hp, achieves 0-to-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and has a top speed of 157 mph. That means the hybrid is quicker and more powerful than the Cayenne S at a more affordable starting price. We can also pretty safely assume it's more efficient, but as of this writing, EPA fuel economy estimates are not available for the Cayenne E-Hybrid. The E-Hybrid model comes standard with the Sport Chrono package, which gives you a mode switch on the steering wheel allowing you to select from Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual drive modes. The Sport Chrono package is optional on the base Cayenne.

Competition

2020 Porsche Cayenne vs the competition

2020 Audi Q7 -- The Audi Q7 is built on the same platform as the Porsche Cayenne. The big differences are that the Q7 is a little less performance-oriented, has different engines, there's no coupe option and it's a bit more affordable. If you prioritize comfort over performance and want to save a few bucks, the Q7 is a good choice.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class -- The GLE-Class is a great, well-rounded midsize luxury SUV which, like the Cayenne, offers a coupe body style. The GLE has a lower starting price than the Cayenne, outstanding AMG performance variants and an available third row of seats.

2020 BMW X5 or X6 -- The BMW X5 is a bit more affordable than the Cayenne and is also a very driver-focused luxury SUV. However, it can't quite match the performance potential of the Porsche, even with the enticing X5 M50i. If you like the idea of a coupe SUV, consider the BMW X6.

Used Land Rover Range Rover Sport -- If you want a high-end luxury SUV that's big on performance but also want or need a third row of seats, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport might be perfect for you. It has a premium cabin, available high-performance variants and is also a capable off-roader.
