For:Monstrously fast and monstrously capable
Against:Monstrous-looking and expensive to run, has a certain image
What is it?
A car we want to hate. Only it’s a bit good and helps pay for more extreme 911s. The Cayenne might finally be growing into its awkward skin, but it’s always been something of an over-achiever. Sure, it can off-road, but its real ability lies on the road, where it drives with quite silly pace and ability for a 4x4.
It was facelifted last year, with a Macan-style front end and enhancements for all the engines. Big news is plug-in tech for the hybrid, but all are greener.
