The 2020 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid is one of the few SUVs that can rival a high-performance sports car in handling and acceleration capability. And while that might be expected from an SUV wearing the Porsche badge, the degree to which it combines that performance with traditional SUV versatility impresses us.
Befitting a Porsche, it far surpasses its competitors in its handling abilities, making it a true pleasure to drive.
The powertrain range is diverse, including two powerful V6 engines, a turbocharged V8 and two plug-in models — including the new, range-topping Turbo S E-Hybrid.
There is also a bevy of performance enhancements, an off-road package, and more luxury and safety options than you thought were possible.
Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid has a few downsides — including poor rear visibility, a smaller-than-average cargo area and a high price tag. These minor drawbacks aren’t enough to keep us from recommending the Cayenne, however.
If you’re in the market for a performance-minded SUV, or just want a well-rounded luxury crossover, you should put the 2020 Porsche Cayenne on your short list.
