The 2019 Porsche Cayenne for sale ranks among the top-rated luxury midsize SUVs. Building over its reputation of utmost athleticism, comfortable interior, and hi-tech features, Porsche has completely redesigned the 2019 Cayenne. On the outside, the new styling looks familiar but it is the Cayenne's interior that not only looks cleaner and technologically upgraded but offers 15% more space inside the cabin. With the hotter S and Turbo versions of the 2019 Porsche Cayenne, the base model's 335-horsepower V6 might be unappealing to some, yet it goes from 0-60 mph in under 6 seconds. On paper, the 434-hp Cayenne S and 541-hp Cayenne Turbo offer ridiculous performance and sports car acceleration.


2019 Porsche Cayenne For Sale

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne carries a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $65,700 which is higher than most SUVs in its class. Climbing up to the $79,900 Cayenne E-Hybrid and $82,900 Cayenne S also bumps the prices significantly over the base model, which is why we'd recommend going for the entry-level Cayenne. Its potent 335-hp V-6 and standard all-wheel-drive provide plenty of power to satisfy most buyers. Also, it includes desirable features such as leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 10-speaker audio system, front and rear parking sensors, and the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touch screen and navigation. Based on listings, the average list price of the used 2019 Porsche Cayenne is $71,900. The Used 2019 Cayenne prices may range from $68,888 to $117,216, depending on the vehicle’s condition, mileage, features, and location.

2019 Porsche Cayenne Buying Advice

Porsche completely redesigned the Cayenne for the 2019 model year. The new Cayenne improves significantly on major complaints in the 2018 Porsche Cayenne. For 2019, the Cayenne goes on sale with a streamlined trim lineup, and the base engine gained 35 horsepower. Also, the new model is about three inches longer and offers more cargo space with the rear seats up. Further, the interiors have neat look as Porsche eliminated many of the physical buttons and added a bigger touch screen. Used car shoppers must stick to the 2019 Cayenne, which is available at an average list price of $71,900 depending on the vehicle's condition, mileage, features, and location.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is all-new this year, with increased use of aluminum, a stronger platform, a new 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine, and a clean interior with more features. The car now weighs less and makes more power than the previous model. This luxury SUV offers seating for five and a combined mpg of 21.

The Cayenne impresses on the road with its fantastic performance credentials and track-worthy specs. The Cayenne goes up against the 2019 Maserati Levante, the 2019 Audi Q8, and the 2019 Jaguar F-Pace S. In its 2019 avatar, the Cayenne steps into its third generation and promises to be better than ever, but is it? Let's check it out in detail.


Buying Advice

If you are looking to squeeze out value from your Porsche Cayenne, then the base trim has pretty much what you are looking for at a relatively reasonable price. Jumping up to the S is not meant for the faint-hearted and the fact that you can essentially option out the Cayenne to include another Cayenne’s MSRP can be a little daunting. In all fairness, Porsche has always charged through the nose for their options and the Cayenne is no different, but even in its base trim, the Cayenne remains to be very impressive.

Features

The 2019 Cayenne base model prices start at $65,700 while the S costs $82,900, excluding the destination fees. The top-spec Cayenne Turbo starts at around $124,600 and is the most-powerful Cayenne model in the lineup.

  • Standard features on the base Cayenne model include LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, front and rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, and a rear-view camera.
  • The Cayenne S features a 434-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine and adds a panoramic sunroof over the base trim features. 
  • The Cayenne Turbo features a 541-horsepower V8 and adds a 14-speaker Bose audio system, heated front and rear seats, and 18-way power-adjustable front sport seats.

There are two main packages on offer, the Premium Package, and the Premium Plus Package. There is also the Sport Chrono Package. Apart from the packages, you have a ton of stand-alone options such as transmission, ventilated seats, ashtray, etc. that all cater to enhancing the Cayenne’s performance, interior and infotainment, exterior, and safety, and also a palette to choose from colors that suit your style. 

Engine and Performance
8.5/10

The base Cayenne comes equipped with a very potent 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that produces 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The V6 helped the Cayenne to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, with a maximum top speed of 152 mph. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 in the Cayenne S makes 434 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque which shaves about 1 second in 0-60 mph time. All engines are mated to an 8 Speed Automatic transmission instead of the more desirable PDK unit. The transmission feels extremely capable and up to the task. The 541-horsepower twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 is reserved for the Cayenne Turbo. The 2019 Cayenne has more to like than just the engine power, it offers sharp steering and agile handling for its size.

With specs like Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, Rear Wheel Steering, Air Suspension, and Porsche Active Aerodynamics, the Cayenne is one of the most dynamic, fun-to-drive vehicles in the class. However, if you opt for the optional 20-inch alloy wheels the ride is jittery, otherwise, with the standard setup the cabin is quiet, and the ride comfort is excellent. The Cayenne can tow up to 7,700 pounds when properly equipped.

Much like other options from Porsche, the Cayenne could also be had with either the standard braking setup or an upgraded and extremely pricey carbon-ceramic package that could be a little too aggressive for many, but for 2019 the Cayenne brings a certain “PSCB” to the table too. The Porsche Surface Coated brakes have been introduced for the 2019 model year and these feature a thin layer of tungsten carbide on the standard rotors that claim to prolong the brakes by upwards of 30% while also producing negligible brake dust.

The Jaguar manages to stand tall when it comes to outright acceleration as it vrooms past with a significant lead of 0.8 seconds over the Cayenne. The Porsche sadly comes in last amongst the competition in its 0-60 run, but it is the Maserati that loses out to the rest in a quarter-mile run. The Jaguar again has the best quarter-mile time at 13.8 seconds. The lighter curb weight of the Jaguar lends it a distinct advantage over the rest which straight away translates to better performance. The Porsche Cayenne however has the highest top speed at 164 mph.

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

The 2019 Cayenne with turbo V6 and AWD returns 19 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined. The fuel economy ratings may not look all that impressive, but they are average in the class. With a 23.7 gallons fuel tank capacity, the Cayenne's base engine delivers a driving range of 450.3/545.1 miles on city/highway respectively.

The new Cayenne offers better fuel economy than its predecessor which could be attributed to the newer cylinder deactivation tech and more modern nannies. In comparison to the rivals, the BMW X5 is slightly better, with an EPA rating of 21/25 mpg city/highway.

Interior
8.5/10

For 2019, the new Cayenne's interior boasts a much cleaner appearance.  Porsche's Direct Touch controls on the center console replace the individual buttons in the previous model. The analog center tachometer is flanked by dual 7-inch digital gauges and a massive 12.3-inch touch screen looks stunning on the center stack. The flat surface panel delivers a sleek look and haptic feedback to control vehicle, climate, and infotainment functions. Overall comfort is on point and Porsche claims that the new Cayenne gains 15-percent more interior room, mostly in the cargo area and rear seat. 

The Cayenne uses top-quality materials inside such as soft, stitched black leather covering the dash, center console, door panels, and seats. It's cabin but also opens up a lot of space both in the front and the rear to keep even the taller occupants happy. Space in both rows is sufficiently comfortable, even with three adults across the back. However, there is no third-row option in the Cayenne. Both front- and rear seats are supportive, with options for heating, and ventilation.

The Cayenne also offers a generous 27.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row that expands to 60.3 with the rear seats folded. The Cayenne Turbo models drop those numbers to 26.3 and 59.3 cubic feet, respectively. In comparison, the BMW X5 offers a maximum cargo capacity of 72.3 cubic feet.

Some of the interior features on the 2019 Cayenne are:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Cruise Control
  • Climate control
  • Keyless ignition
  • Universal door opener
  • Internal air filtration

The large 12.3 Inch Porsche Connect Plus Infotainment System on the Porsche Cayenne is a definitive highlight as it is a pleasure to operate. The touch response is extremely fluid while the user interface feels intuitive to navigate and upmarket to look at. The 10-speaker standard audio setup on offer is more than enough for most as it offers great sound separation and thumping bass, but if you are an audiophile at heart, then upgrading to the 14 Speaker Bose system or the ear-shattering 21-speaker Burmester System might be something you want to look at.

The 1455 watts of the combined power output of the Burmeister system elevates the overall infotainment experience to the next level and portrays a sound signature that is tough to replicate in the segment. Although the system does come shod with Apple CarPlay, the lack of Android Auto does appear to be a very strange omission.

Some of the more notable infotainment features are mentioned below:

  • Apple CarPlay
  • Sirius XM
  • Wifi Hotspot
  • 12.3 Inch Infotainment Display
  • Porsche Connect Plus System
  • 10-Speaker Hi-fi Audio System/14 Speaker Bose System/ 21 speaker Burmester System
Exterior
8.5/10

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne's look is familiar but has a sleeker silhouette that is bedazzled with a set of wonderful Matrix LED headlamps and taillamps. With a lower stance, the Cayenne uses staggering front and rear tire widths on the standard 19-inch wheels. Moving up the ladder, you can get larger wheels and tires (up to 22 inches) as well as unique front-end treatment and colors.

The redesigned 2019 Cayenne run atop a stronger platform, and the SUV is almost 2.4 inches longer and an inch wider than the previous model. Also, the new car is lighter and more rigid, thanks to the increased use of aluminum throughout the body.

The 2019 Cayenne’s exterior does follow more in the footsteps of the Porsche 911. The design is curvier and larger than before. At the rear, the design does remind one of the Porsche Panamera.

All of the vehicles in question offer some great-looking exteriors, but we would have to point out that the coupe-like design of the Audi Q8 does stand out quite a lot. Even though the Q8 sports the humblest badge amongst the lot, the designers at Audi have certainly made the Q8 extremely pretty and it certainly sits well with the likes of the Porsche and Maserati.

The Levante is a very pretty vehicle to look at too, but in our eyes, we do believe that the design of the Cayenne is much more graceful. The cars come close in terms of dimensions, and it's the ground clearance that makes the cars appear taller or shorter. Some of the other exterior features that make the Porsche Cayenne stand out are as follows:

  • LED Headlights and 4-point LED DRLs
  • 3D LED Taillights
  • 19-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires
  • Rear-wiper Privacy glass for rear windows
  • Aluminum accents on body panels
  • "PORSCHE" logo and model designation on the rear hatch in High Gloss Silver
  • Integrated rear spoiler
  • Twin single-tube tailpipes in brushed stainless steel
  • Active Aero Flaps in the Front
Safety
9.0/10

Like many other higher-end vehicles, the 2019 Porsche Cayenne hasn’t been crash-tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS. The Cayenne does offer some great active safety features. All Cayenne models get a rearview camera, forward-collision warnings, and automatic emergency braking. The available safety features include adaptive cruise control, active lane control, surround-view cameras with off-road modes, LED-matrix headlights, and night vision.

Some 2019 Porsche Cayenne Safety Features highlights include:

  • Automated Emergency Braking
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Night Vision
  • Infrared Camera
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors
  • Blind Spot Monitoring
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alerts
Competition
7.9/10

2019 Porsche Cayenne vs 2019 Maserati Levante

The diminishing reputation of Maserati coupled with a lukewarm interior and high price tag serves to make a very weak argument for the Levante. Yes, the Maserati is quicker by the tiniest of margins, but the moment you step to the Cayenne, the Maserati Levante is blown to smithereens.

Moreover, Porsche's racing DNA and exquisite interior quality are unmatchable. It is tough to recommend the Levante over the Cayenne as the latter is not just a better product, but also offers a significantly better after-sales experience as well.

2019 Porsche Cayenne vs 2019 Audi Q8

This comparison goes neck-to-neck, as both the Audi and Porsche come with an AWD and handle the twist and turns with ease.  Yes, the Q8 lacks the sheer power in front of a Porsche, but the Q8 offers the third-row of seating.

Though both the vehicles offer an opulent interior and a comfortable ride, we would recommend going to the Cayenne in case you want that extra oomph. It is pretty evident that Audi has managed to create a fantastic product that would go on to serve as a threat to vehicles even a segment above.

2019 Porsche Cayenne vs 2019 Jaguar F-Pace

The Jaguar F-pace has consistently impressed us in the past when it comes to handling and performance, and even in front of the cayenne, it doesn’t disappoint. Yes, the Cayenne does sport a richer badge on the bonnet, but when it comes to brass tacks, the Jag manages to be significantly faster in its S guise when compared to the base Cayenne while also being significantly cheaper.

Yes, the overall luxury quotient of the Cayenne is a step above, but the Jaguar F-Pace is still a very worthy opponent. The Jaguar may not offer agility around the corners, as good as, Cayenne, it offers a good value for money.

Final Verdict
8.2/10

The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is everything that the Cayenne has stood for in the past and is more for the future. The third generation of the Cayenne features lavish interiors, striking exteriors, and some very meaty mechanicals. The Cayenne can be shod with plenty of technological features, though some of them can be a tad bit too pricey for our liking.

Although there is some stiff competition in the space, as the Cayenne leans more towards performance than practicality, we certainly believe that the Cayenne is the perfect buy for an individual that wants to get a 911 inside his heart, but needs a practical vehicle to lug the family around too!
