The subtle updates to the Cayenne models have helped, further distancing unflattering comparisons to the Volkswagen Touareg. Though the cosmetic changes are now pretty clear, the mechanical enhancements are harder to see through a zoom lens. But those gaping air intakes do suggest a big power increase.
Props to the Cayenne
The Cayenne successfully defended its leading position as the benchmark in the SUV market with several magazines. Readers of Off Road, a specialist magazine for vehicles of this type, chose the Cayenne in their “Off Road Award 2008” as the best luxury SUV. Diners Club Magazine lauded the Cayenne as the “Best Offroader of the Year“, and the internet portal Autoscout24 presented the Cayenne with its “Internet Auto Award” as the best sports utility of its class throughout the whole of Europe. Porsche’s SUV also won the national competitions in Germany, France and the Netherlands, with Autorecht24 placing the Cayenne Turbo right at the top in 2008 as the “Car of the Year”.
The 2008 Cayenne is a step up from previous years with a boost in power, a suspension that works hard keeping a 5,000 pound behemoth agile on the road, and an exterior look that is easy on the eyes. If driving is your game, but need a work mule that is a step apart from the plethora of SUVs on the road today, the Cayenne could be the right ticket for you.
