As the current flagship of the Cayenne line-up (a Turbo S or S E-Hybrid aren’t unlikely future propositions), the Turbo requires a suitably large financial commitment from potential new owners: £99,291, to be precise, or £1279.57 per month on contract hire. And those sums come before options.
Our test car included, among other features, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (£2315), PCCB (£4217), PTV Plus (£1052), black roof rails (£413) and a two-tone leather interior (£422). All up, the additional kit fitted to it cost an extra £15,269. Still, rivals have the ability to be just as expensive: a Range Rover Sport SVR starts at £101,145.
At least the Porsche should fare relatively well in terms of depreciation. Our experts predict that, after 36,000 miles and three years of ownership, the Cayenne will still be worth 60% of its original asking price. The Range Rover Sport is tipped to retain 55% of its value.
