Porsche Cayenne SUV (2017 - )

The Porsche Cayenne has always been the car every manufacturer of large, luxury SUVs has tried to emulate. Although they may not have the same level of desirability, rivals like the Range Rover Sport, BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE have come close in terms of performance, refinement and quality. Unfortunately for them, the Cayenne has put paid to their challenges. Lighter, leaner and faster, with a posher cabin that’s been stuffed with the latest driving, safety, and infotainment tech, Porsche has simply blown the opposition clean out of the water.

Our expert review

Hands up who thinks the Porsche Cayenne is going to be cheap to run? If you do, go to the back of the class. Granted, the Cayenne is extremely desirable as a used buy, so it will hang onto its value better than most SUVs, but it’s eye-wateringly expensive to buy in the first place. What’s more, consumables like brakes and tyres will need changing on a regular basis and will cost you dear. On top of this, insurance rates will be exorbitant and fuel consumption will be especially wicked on the more powerful petrol versions. The Turbo model doesn’t come with a huge 100-litre petrol tank for no good reason, and even when you’re just pussyfooting around in one of the V6 cars, you’ll be lucky to get more than 25mpg.

Servicing and labour costs from main dealers will also be very steep. Having said all that, if you can afford to buy a Porsche, you can probably afford to own one, and that strong resale value should keep the costs down overall.
