Video review: Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Could this latest Cayenne be the ultimate high-performance SUV?

Would you pay £100,000 for an SUV? Bentley’s Bentayga has proved that price is no barrier to buyers if the product is good enough – and now here is the latest Porsche Cayenne Turbo attempting to reconfirm that principle at a whisker under £100,000.

Built on a shortened version of the Bentayga/Audi Q7 platform, and priced smack in between those two, the third-generation Cayenne Turbo has 542bhp and a sportier driving ethos. Well, as sporting as anything weighing nearly 2.2 tonnes can be, anyway.

Grip is bonkers for a car of this size, or any size really.

But the Cayenne Turbo does have a guilty secret. Check out the video to discover what it is.
