The Porsche Cayenne, in the Turbo S E-Hybrid, completely transcends the world of utility and enters the realm of supercar performance and capacity. It adheres to the idea at Porsche that the highest performing model on any product will be a hybrid. This makes the E-Hybrid overcome its exceptionally well-made and powered sibling the Cayenne Turbo look underpowered. The exceptional performance comes with a premium and well-spaced interiors that make the SUV go up against the big dogs in the SUV segment.

The Electric motor adds a new dimension of capacity and response, with even all-electric mode available to help ease out the output. The Porsche and the Bentley Bentayga, which incidentally are based on similar platforms, offer exceeding amounts of convenience with their all-electric drive modes, which makes either of them future proof. The battery can be recharged at an electric power outlet, or even be completely charged based on the output of the monstrous V-8. all this technology combines to offer performance and handling that is a salute to the experience at Porsche, and far exceeds any other SUV on the road. Overall the SUV is Porsche's attempt to compete and overcome the growing luxury SUV segment.

The Cayenne also has a similarly specced Coupe variant on the Turbo S E-Hybrid, which improves the dynamics and handling with the same basic powertrain and setup. The Coupe is more agile on the road and has a much lower ground clearance. Although it costs about $3,000 more than the SUV and even takes away a bit of the rear row headrooms.

Overall Rating


The Porsche Cayenne has its pull in the market for its standout styling and practicality combined into a powerful frame. The Cayenne is well built, has loads of space, luxurious interiors, and drawing from Porsche’s pedigree, outstanding performance. Perhaps Porsche forgot that the Cayenne was an SUV and added blisteringly fast engine options on the lineup. The lower models have a 3.0L twin-turbo V-6, while the Cayenne GTS and the Cayenne Turbo have a twin-turbo V-8. Over and above its sibling the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid stands atop the pile with the 541-hp V-8 from the Turbo and adds a powerful 134-horsepower electric motor to the mix.

The Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is a new addition to the lineup and redefines what the SUV can do, with an overall output of 670-hp. The transmission is the 8-speed Trip-Tronic that has great sporty character and refinement, and the drivetrain is a refined and composed AWD. It comes in at a price tag of $163,200 pinning it against some of the best performance SUVs by other luxury automakers in the market. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid goes up against the Mercedes Benz GLS 580 and the Land Rover Range Rover P400 Autobiography.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Porsche is well known to offer some of the best refinement and capability on the market. The brand employs German engineering prowess and exceptional engineering to offer cars that perform exceeding expectations. Porsche cars also come with an aluminum-intensive frame and well-made structure that can take on all and any wear and tear you might encounter on roads. Porsche cars are known to have great drivability and reliability, with a decent response in the resale market.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

The best way to gauge reliability is to consider consumer reviews and the experiences with owning the car. The J.D. Power website ranks and rates cars based on actual consumer interaction. The Porsche Cayenne is known to have a high degree of finish and exceptional quality. It scores an exceptional 82 on a possible 100 in the overall J.D. power rating, making it the #2 ranked SUV on the website.

Porsche has a highly modernized and precise manufacturing process. The tolerances for their components are low enough to allow seamless fits in even their lower-priced models. This gives the brand a well-founded reputation for precision and exceptional driving. The Cayenne has a great driving experience, and the discounts and customizations offered at the dealerships also give it a high rating in that department. As the updated Cayenne is a comparatively new model, it has a rather low rating in terms of Quality and Reliability. While the decent response Porsches enjoy in the used cars market shows up in its rating as well.

The cost an automobile incurs throughout ownership can far exceed its price tag in many cases. The $163,200 Porsche costs cover up only the expense to the dealer. Which can later balloon up as years pass. The depreciation takes a huge chunk from the pricing in the first year itself, and in the case of luxury cars can even keep on going on a lowering slope to make the cars quickly lose value. The expert maintenance required for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid aligned with imported parts can bump up maintenance costs over the years. One positive attribute of the E-Hybrid setup is that fuel efficiency is sure to be low and quite affordable.

The Porsche Cayenne can set you back to the tune of $120,000 throughout 5-years of ownership. While this does not touch at the price, it can be minimized by efficient driving and timely maintenance. Additionally, since the E-Hybrid is a new addition to the lineup, it can have a few defects in the build, which will be ironed out in the future. This makes it paramount to have an extended warranty to bring down the ownership costs even further.

Porsche Warranty

Porsche like other luxury car manufacturers offers a 4-year warranty on all its models. The engineering and the technology in the cars are well made and fit to ensure that the car retains exceptional performance for extraordinary durations. The long warranty signifies Porsche’s confidence in their cars.

Criteria

Period

Basic Warranty

4 years or 50,000 miles

Powertrain Warranty

4 years or 50,000 miles

Hybrid Battery Warranty

8 years or 100,000 miles

Corrosion and Perforation Warranty

12 years, unlimited miles

Porsche Parts and Accessories

Porsche also offers roadside assistance for the duration of the warranty. Warranty extension packages can be bought on both pre-owned vehicles as well as new vehicles as required from dealerships. Maximum warranty extension to the tune of 10-years or 100,000 miles can also be purchased.

Miles Per Dollar

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid already offers surprising amounts of efficiency considering the large displacement its engine makes. The electric motor, with its added efficiency, gets the mileage figures for the Porsche lower. All these factors contribute to 5-6 miles per dollar, based on mileage of 17 MPG. These figures aren't that high, but the standout performance and driveability still make the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid a convincing package.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV Buying Advice

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid already is the best possible build you can get on the model. Porsche further throws in premium finishes and technology from the lineup to justify the premium price tag the car asks for. Over and above these, the car already comes well equipped to fulfill almost all of your needs, however certain accessories and luxuries can further be added to it. We would advise you to go for the Sports Chrono package which seriously bumps up the acceleration and performance of the car, and also adds the classic time-piece to the center of the dashboard. Another addition would be the Assistance package which contains additions to driver-assist and safety tech, which makes handling and parking the large SUV much easier.

Is buying a used Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid a good idea?

The Porsche Cayenne is well made and exceptionally appointed with materials that can last for decades. The performance is known not to be a decade for very long, and the refinement and novelty of the car are projected to remain throughout its life. Porsches lose about 12-15% of their value in the first year, which combined with the lower tax you would need to pay makes the Cayenne a convincing model to look for in the used car space

However, the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV is newly added for 2020 and as such will not be available anywhere else but as new in a Porsche dealership. And honestly, the added performance and capability is definitely worth the price.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is all about power and speed. Whereas most manufacturers tend to use electricity to give their cars a bump in efficiency, Porsche has gone the opposite way. The Turbo S E-Hybrid is blisteringly fast and is comparable to some sports cars with its power output. Porsche even offers an option of a much more utilitarian and pocket-friendly alternative to Hybrid-tech in the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid engine

Powering the SUV has a twin-turbocharged V-8 gas motor, from the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, which makes 541 horsepower and 567 foot-pounds of torque. Added to that is a powerful electric motor that makes about 134 horsepower on its own. The combined output from the Cayenne is an awesome 670 horsepower and 663 foot-pounds of torque. The electric motor can be used in an all-electric mode up to speeds of 83 mph. The battery is a 14.1 kWh lithium-ion unit which can be charged at a 240-volt 30-amp power source in about 2.5 hours.

The gearbox is the Trip-Tronic transmission taken over from the Volkswagen and Audi lineup, which does a great job at interworking with the hybrid system. Although the gearbox is not as quick as the PDK, the car barely needs it as the refinement and linear motion is apparent. The suspension is a 3-chamber air-spring unit that can handle the 5623 pounds of weight the SUV carries. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system, further enhances these to work in tandem with the powertrain to allow the best of road grabbing as well as comfort. An addon in the Sports Chrono Package can bump up the performance to mind-boggling levels of acceleration and speed.

The Porsche Cayenne SUV seems more attuned to offer comfortable on-road mobility and space rather than offroad character. Nevertheless, it is the most powerful SUV on the lineup, and even has more push behind the wheel than the legendary Lamborghini Urus. The Mercedes GLS 580 is more attuned to luxury and linear movement, although it still offers a hefty bit of performance. The Land Rover Range Rover P400e Autobiography seems the most underpowered in the competition, although it does have exceptional off-road performance and uncanny responsiveness over terrain.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Acceleration And Braking Performance

Blisteringly fast acceleration is what the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid offers. The V-8 with its gurgling rhythm and super-powered output, mated to the direct torque of the electric motor gives it exceptionally quick acceleration on just gently nudging the throttle. Even under normal operation, in start-stop conditions, the SUV shuts off the motor and gives instant movement to the wheels to give the SUV an almost instantaneous response. With the Sports Chrono Package, the Cayenne can overcome the 0-60 acceleration in just about 3.6 seconds, and in actuality goes much faster.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid hits 0-60 mph just in 3.6 sec

The large brakes are racing spec, and come painted in a standout neon-green. The brakes include regenerative braking functionality that charges the battery by harvesting energy lost while braking. The system offers quite well-made and does wonders for battery life, to the extent that most owners simply don't even need to charge their batteries. However, the brake feel is a tad inconsistent and gives off the feeling that the interworking of the performance brakes and the regen-system is not quite up to tune. Nevertheless, they do quite a capable job at stopping the SUV instantaneously.

The Range Rover mostly uses its electric torque to overcome obstacles.

8.1/10

While the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid does not have the most fuel-efficient implementation of the electric motor, it is to smoothen the drive and offer extreme acceleration. Porsche still loads up the SUV with enough technology and capabilities to achieve the best mileage.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Hybrid and the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid have similar setups, and that in turn gives them a similar range, which just amounts to about 300 miles on a full tank. The Mercedes with its larger fuel tank has an astounding capability of 400 miles. The Land Rover Range Rover Hybrid is the most frugal, and coupled with its 24-gallon fuel tank is sure to have exceptional range.

7.9/10

The interiors are a balance between true luxury, finely detailed styling, and sporty character. The interior has been styled to portray futuristic finesse and at least on the front row ends towards aiding the driver, in its cockpit-style layout. The rear row is another ballgame and has acres of space and executive style seating, which is sure to make the car enjoyable while being chauffeured. The cabin is completely customizable as Porsche offers you a wide variety of material options, which even includes Alcantara, along with a wide array of paint schemes to choose from.

The seats are comfortable 18-way power-adjustable units, which can be swapped with 14-way adjustable seats with massage functions, or even racing-style bucket seats with more support. The catalog offers an endless list of luxuries and added tech into the cabin. These include heated and ventilated front seats, four-zone climate control, heated and ventilated rear row seats as well as a heated steering wheel. The rear row can be had in two captain chairs, with reclining and other luxuries or a single row. There is even a standard sunroof along the length of the cabin.

Even though the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is a performance car in all senses of the word, it has acres of space in the cabin and a highly utilitarian layout. The doors as well as the interior feature cubbies and storage spaces which make it a rather usable daily driver, or a family car. The cargo hold has 27 cubic-feet of real estate that can carry almost any luggage a family of four may require for a small vacation. The Bentley Bentayga swaps out storage space and ease of use for better materials and more space on the rear row.

How’s the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid infotainment system?

The exceptionally refined and standout infotainment system comes in form of a large 12.3-inch touch display which sits snugly in the center of the dashboard. It's the same unit featured on the Porsche Panamera or the Porsche 911. The system rides the balance in ease of use and extensive styling and is rather easy to operate even for the driver on the go. It includes several features including 4G LTE mobile Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay. The system however still misses out on Android Auto, as maybe Porsche thinks its elite clientele would be unlikely to use anything other than the largest iPhones.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid infotainment system

The Turbo S E-Hybrid gets an exceptionally well-tuned 14-speaker Bose audio, which even has a subwoofer included. There is uber-premium audio on offer in the Burmester 21 speaker system although it comes at a $5810 price tag. There is even wireless phone charging. Included satellite navigation, Bluetooth compatibility, SiriusXM Satellite package, and so on.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid gauge cluster

The driver’s gauge cluster comes in the shape of a huge center dial for the RPM counter, flanked by two large full-color displays, and also includes a head-up display. The digital display can be completely customized according to your preference, alternatively displaying the gear you chose or even the map. When you switch between drive modes, the layout changes from a sedate and laid back option to an aggressive track friendly one in the blink of an eye. Some of the standout features in infotainment are:

  • 18-way electric seats
  • Porsche Communication Management (PCM) 
  • 12.3-inch touchscreen display
  • Voice Control

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV Exterior

8.8/10

The Porsche Cayenne is available in two distinct body styles, the large and aggressive SUV, and the streamlined and distinctly “Porsche” Coupe. The Coupe gets larger wheels and some more exterior options, while the SUV tends to move more towards more space and higher ground clearance. Overall, all Cayenne models show their DNA, with the simplistic sides, and the arched design on the roof and the back. The headlamps also resemble some of the sportier models by the automaker, particularly the Porsche 918.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid three quarter view

The front has LED-Matrix headlamps and features dynamic cornering lights, which include distinct 4-point daytime running lights. The lamps include Automatic High Beam Assist in the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus. The Cayenne Turbo gets a distinct front fascia, revamped air intakes, and a sportier front bumper. The taillamps are in the form of a striking LED strip that is flanked by full-LED lights that have a four-point design like the front. The rear bumper has aluminum exhausts, which can be upgraded to Sports Exhausts for a better sound. The SUV model gets roof rails on the top.

The added weight of the E-Hybrid setup does hinder the movement and agility of the CAyenne by a tiny bit. Although their capable suspension and steering do a great job in easing the driving feel. The Cayenne does not feel like the lighter and sportier Panamera, but it has its own larger appeal. The Bentley is heavier than the Porsche, even though the underpinnings are the same, this is due to the “weight of luxury” as some would say.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV Safety

7.7/10

The Cayenne is a premium vehicle that has not been tested by the IIHS or the NHTSA. Although the aluminum-intensive frame is sure to have been well tested and designed to take on the rigors of extended driving. Porsche makes their cars able enough to take on the race track, and as such, there is very little that can phase the Cayneen on the road. Even then Porsche barely includes most safety tech and driving assist as standard, and must be purchased. The brand offers the most modern technology in terms of assistance, although each of them has to be individually purchased. The Assistance Package includes the head-up display and the 36-degree surround view system. Some of the driver’s assistance and safety features included are:

  • Automatic Headlights
  • 360-degree camera
  • Forward-collision warning and 
  • Automated emergency braking
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Traffic sign recognition
  • Night vision assist

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Vs Mercedes Benz GLS 580

The Mercedes GLS 580 offers some of the best interiors and space amongst all luxury SUVs. It even offers 7-row seating with capable legroom on the last row. In terms of utility and for being chauffeured around it largely exceeds the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid.

Mercedes Benz GLS 580

Although the hybrid system just provides a mild boost, it does not include Plug-in charging or an all-electric drive mode. Even the performance of the SUV seems a bit too mundane.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Vs Land Rover Range Rover P400e Autobiography
