Considering the kind of cars that the Porsche Cayenne is up against and the kind of category this SUV falls under, there isn’t any room for error in terms of quality and materials used. The 2014 Porsche Cayenne's interior seats five for long-haul comfort. The upscale materials and unique design of the center stack are praiseworthy. Infotainment features include a 10-speaker stereo system with a 7-inch touch-screen display screen, Bluetooth, and more. The Cayenne's cargo hold offers 62.9 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded, which is average in the luxury midsize SUV category. For the 2014 model year, Porsche has introduced a new line-topping flagship Turbo S model, which offers a carbon-black interior with two-tone leather upholstery in black/Carrera red or black/Luxor beige with contrasting Carrera red or Luxor beige stitching.

2014 Porsche Cayenne Dashboard

The 2014 Porsche Cayenne is considered to be one of the best driving luxury SUVs out there and has a very exquisite look both on the inside as well as outside that makes the competitors like the BMW X5, the Audi Q7, and the Acura MDX look a bit mediocre and less exciting in comparison. The interior of the Porsche is designed in such a way that the moment you are seated behind the wheel, it stimulates the driver to drive it like a sports car.

Inside, the Cayenne has a cockpit-like cabin - especially visible with the instrument-panel arrangement, curved surfaces, sloping center console, and even an analog clock. A lot of interior elements are similar to the Panamera four-door interior. 

Though all Cayenne variants feature similar interior layout and space, moving up to higher model upgrade to higher-rent materials. For example, in the GTS, you'll get special eight-way sport seats with Alcantara accents, while Turbo S models get unique two-tone leather trim and more.

The cabin space is almost identical among these cars but the Audi and the Acura offer an extra third row making the total passenger hold 7. However, the fit and finish and the quality feel far superior in the Porsche and the BMW. The seating capacity can be a deciding factor for many but if 5 passenger vehicle is what you’re looking for, the Porsche will definitely surprise you.

2014 Porsche Cayenne Infotainment System

The Cayenne is on par with its competitor in terms of the offerings and the car and this SUV comes standard with a 10 speaker audio setup. Users can also pick the Bose Audio package that offers a 14-speaker setup or go high-end with the $5,690 1,000-watt Burmester 16-speaker premium stereo system.

  • 10-speaker standard setup
  • Optional 16-speaker Burmester surround-sound system
  • Optional dual-screen rear-seat entertainment module
  • Speed sensitive volume control
  • USB ports

What are the creature comforts offered inside the 2014 Porsche Cayenne?

It’s clear that the Cayenne offers a ton of features but what keeps the occupants very comfortable are the 8-way adjustable leather-wrapped heated seats with ventilation function available for the front seats. Additional seat adjustability and upgraded leather upholstery are all available for grabs as an optional package or on the higher trims.

What is the cargo capacity on offer?

SUVs are generally regarded to have large cargo space and even though the Porsche isn’t an SUV that is preferred to haul cargo in, it offers a large trunk for its class. The 22.6 cubic feet trunk might not be the biggest you’ve seen but is a leap ahead when compared to a few of its competitors. The maximum cargo capacity inside the Porsche Cayenne is 62.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

The Porsche Cayenne and the Audi Q7 offer the same cargo space and these figures were measured with the cabin completely occupied by passengers. Folding down the seats would extend the space but the Acura falls behind with the tiniest trunk of them all.

What are the other storage spaces inside?

The Cayenne apart from the cargo space offers just the basic storage facilities like the heated/cooled glove box along with a storage compartment under the armrest. The center console houses two cup holders and also the regular door side storage compartment.

Is the 2014 Porsche Cayenne interior practical enough?

The cars that Porsche makes are generally considered to be complete driver’s cars but with the Cayenne, they’ve made sure that the SUV is equally as practical as it’s fun to drive. The 2014 Porsche Cayenne manages to find the balance between practicality and performance and this car has one of the best cabins in its segment both in terms of comfort and styling. It’s not just the passengers that get ample space in this car but the cargo space offered is the best in class too.
