KBB Expert Review

Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

Inside the 2014 Porsche Cayenne are sumptuous, finely stitched leather and overlays of wood and metal. The look strongly recalls the up-market Porsche Panamera sedan. Rear-seat passengers enjoy a sliding and reclining seat and a pair of LCD screens in the front headrests. Like all of Porsche's current offerings, the Cayenne's cockpit is filled with buttons, knobs and switches, and while that might sound complex, most of us still find operating conventional controls far less distracting than sifting through multiple on-screen menus.

Exterior   photo

An abundance of muscular curves and a forward-leaning rear window convey the Cayenne's purpose of speed. Big brake calipers peeking through the wheel spokes also relay this Porsche's sporting ambitions. Black calipers denote the base V6 and Diesel models, silver the Cayenne S and Cayenne S Hybrid, and red the high-performance GTS and Turbo models. The high-end ceramic brake option sports a yellow-painted setup. Up front, we like the larger trapezoidal grille of the Turbo models and the four exhaust outlets at the rear.

Notable Standard Equipment

The 2014 Porsche Cayenne comes in seven trim levels: Base, Diesel, S, S Hybrid, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S. Base models include all-wheel drive, water-repellent front side windows, a height-adjustable power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers and a 10-speaker audio system with a 7-inch touch screen. For improved fuel economy, especially in the city, all Cayennes with the automatic transmission include a start/stop function that automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop, then restarts it when the brake pedal is released. Safety comes in the form of six airbags, a full suite of electronic stability aids, and complimentary roadside assistance through the duration of the warranty.

Notable Optional Equipment

Anyone who wishes to take the Cayenne's already impressive handling capability to another level should opt for Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control. This real-time roll-control system adjusts sway bar loading in response to conditions and selected drive mode. If your tastes run to exceptional sound quality, you can choose the 1,000-watt, 16-speaker Burmester audio system option. In-vehicle connectivity, formerly a Porsche weakness, is well covered in the 2014 Cayenne via the Aha Radio smartphone application, which offers a variety of customizable news, music and social networking services.

Under the Hood

Seven engine choices are available in the 2014 Porsche Cayenne, each representing a distinct trim. The base Cayenne uses a 300-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 linked to a 6-speed manual transmission or, as with every other model in the lineup, an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic. The Cayenne Diesel has a highly efficient, torque-rich turbocharged V6. Moving up to the Cayenne S brings a 400-horsepower naturally aspirated V8, while GTS models use a version tuned for 420 horsepower. The Cayenne S Hybrid employs a 333-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V6 along with a pair of electric motors that add 47 horsepower to the total. At the top of the line are the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the Turbo S – they deliver a whopping 500 and 550 horsepower, respectively.

Pricing Notes

The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of a base 2014 Porsche Cayenne with a manual transmission starts just under $50,000. Opting for the excellent 8-speed automatic transmission adds $3,000. The Cayenne Diesel begins about $58,000, while the range-topping Porsche Turbo S comes in at around $147,000. The 2014 Cayenne shares a similar starting price with its BMW and Mercedes-Benz rivals. Be sure to check KBB.com's Fair Purchase Price below to see what others in your area are currently paying for the Porsche Cayenne. At resale time, the 2014 Cayenne is expected to retain a good percentage of its original value after five years of ownership, though likely won't quite match the strong values of the BMW X5 and the 7-Passenger Audi Q7.
