The 2022 Porsche Cayenne is a mid-size luxury SUV that stands apart from the rest of the competition as it offers utility, off-road capabilities, and handles like a dream. It comes with various engine options all of which are put to good use thanks to the best engineers on work at Stuttgart who put up their efforts in making it as enjoyable to drive as any Porsche car

It competes against cars like the BMW X5, the Audi Q8, and the Maserati Levante. The Audi and Porsche are the same cars as both are based on the same MLB platform from Volkswagen. The combination of a powerful engine, and intuitive driving dynamics make the Cayenne the most desirable choice amongst enthusiasts.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Features

6.5/10

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne is available in two body styles SUV and Coupe. The Cayenne SUV is available in a total of six trims while the coupe is available in a total of seven trims out of which the Tubro GT is the new addition for this year. The six trims available for the Cayenne is Base, E-Hybrid, S, GTS, Turbo, and Turbo S E-HybridFor this review we will be covering the base model of the Cayenne while the rest of the trim levels have been covered by us separately, so don't forget to check them out. The 2022 Cayenne starts at $69,000 excluding any kind of charges and optional features.

This trim is powered by a 335 hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that is mated to an eight-speed automatic and sends power to an AWD system. The base Cayenne trims packs in mostly basic features which are these days standard on SUVs which are two segments below it. Another bummer is that most of the advanced safety features and driver aids are part of an optional features list or packages. Although the optional features and packages do let you customize your Cayenne as per your taste provided you are okay with the inflated final MSRP. 

A couple of noteworthy optional features to look at includes an Entertainment package that adds a 14-speaker Bose sound system or a 21-speaker Burmester premium sound system, rear-seat entertainment, DVD/CD player, etc. Performance upgrade package includes sport exhaust, upgraded performance brakes, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), upgraded wheels, and Sport Chrono package. While driver-assist package gets you adaptive cruise control, head-up display, lane change and keep assist, night vision assists, and a few more.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Engine and Performance

7.0/10

Various engine options come with the 2022 Porsche Cayenne to meet the needs of everyone. Although the base Cayenne sports get the smallest engine of them all which is a 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine that puts out 335-horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox that sends power to an AWD system. This setup helps the 2022 Porsche Cayenne go from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.9 seconds and hits a top speed of 152 MPH. With the Sports Chrono Package, the time further reduces to 5.6 seconds, which is astonishing for a car the size of Cayenne.

2022 Porsche Cayenne SUV In Action

Despite being a large-sized SUV it is a marvel as it has the best combination of engine and driving dynamics thanks to the powerful engine, AWD, and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus. The ride quality isn't compromised for better handling and when had with the available adaptive air suspension the Cayenne simply glides over bad roads. The braking performance is also at par with the vehicle's capabilities and the Cayenne under panic braking stops under 160 feet from 70-0 MPH.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Fuel Economy

6.0/10

Powered by the base turbocharged V6 engine the 2022 Porsche Cayenne has an EPA estimated gas mileage of 19 MPG in the city, 23 MPG on the highway, and 20 MPG combined. Being a hefty SUV with AWD as standard these figures are respectable and as for the range-conscious customers Porsche has given it a 23.7-gallon fuel tank which is the biggest among the rival SUVs below.

Despite its performance, BMW X5 has better fuel efficiency than the rest of the competition which makes up for a better range, which is followed closely by the Cayenne which has the largest fuel tank making it compete with the BMW with ease. While the most powerful Maserati Levante is the least efficient among all the SUVs here.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Interior

7.0/10

Inside the 2022 Porsche Cayenne is just like every other Porsche comes with a well-built and premium-feeling cabin. It is made from the best materials available and is beautifully designed. The center console is kept simplistic with a clean layout and a large touchscreen which is biased towards the driver for ease of reach and usability. While the traditional analog cluster in front of the driver seen on older Cayenne has also been replaced by a digital gauge cluster. The standard cabin color theme is beige and black but Porsche offers a bevy of color and material choices to make your unique cabin.

2022 Porsche Cayenne SUV Interior Overview

The cabin space and overall seat comfort are excellent on the Cayenne SUV. The front seats are the ones to be in if you are looking for the most comfortable place. While the rear seats are equally comfortable but miss out on the optional comfort features which are available for the front seats. The Cayenne also comes with a host of tech and features like heated and ventilated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control keyless ignition, and much more. There is also an option for four-zone climate control. The trunk of the Cayenne offers 27.2 cubic feet of space which is less than most other SUVs in the segment.

As for infotainment, the 2022 Cayenne offers a new touchscreen setup along with the addition of Android Auto smartphone connectivity. The infotainment system up till now offered only Apple CarPlay. The new screen looks good and the display is sharp but the touch is overly sensitive thus needing time to get a hang of it. While for the audio the setup is a 10-speaker stereo while available as an option is a 14-speaker Bose sound system and a 21-speaker Burmester premium sound system.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Exterior

5.0/10

The exterior of the 2022 Porsche Cayenne has carried forward the looks which were seen on the 2021 model. The 2022 Cayenne comes with an aggressive-looking front fascia that gets slimmer headlights and a more aggressive front grille, and a slimmer bumper with integrated LED DRLs as well.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Safety

8.0/10

For an SUV costing close to $70,000 it is bound to come with class-leading safety features and tech but for the 2022 Porsche Cayenne, this isn't the case as most of the advanced driver aid features and safety tech are part of the optional features list. Also, expensive cars like the Porsche Cayenne are rarely crash-tested by any of the federal agencies like the NHTSA or the IIHS. Thus making it even more difficult to come to a conclusion on the vehicle's safety.

Safety Features:

  • Adaptive cruise control w/ stop-and-go technology
  • Blind-spot monitoring system
  • Rear-cross traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane-keeping assist

2022 Porsche Cayenne Competition

5.0/10

2022 Porsche Cayenne vs 2022 BMW X5

The toughest competitor to the Cayenne is undoubtedly the X5 which offers spacious two rows of seating, better standard cargo space, is more fuel-efficient than the Cayenne, comes with more standard safety features. 

2022 BMW X5

The optional features top off the list making it way bigger than the Porsche, it has an equally premium interior and comes with a lesser price tag than the Porsche, which easily makes it the winner. 

2022 Porsche Cayenne vs 2022 Audi Q8

Technically both these cars are based on the same platform and are corporate cousins but where the Cayenne is a car that is more intriguing to the driver, Q8 caters to the needs of both the driver and the occupants.

2022 Audi Q8

 Audi also manages to offer better MPG figures, spacious interior, and a few more safety features, but in the end, choosing between the two becomes a choice of personal preference. 

2022 Porsche Cayenne vs 2022 Maserati Levante

If you prefer looks over anything else then yes, there is no better-looking SUV than the Levante, but it comes with a list of drawbacks. Levante offers good performance and driving dynamics, but the MPG figures are worse than the Porsche.

2022 Maserati Levante

Further, the cabin might be more spacious but fails to match the build quality of the Porsche. It is also more expensive than the Cayenne. 

2022 Porsche Cayenne Final Verdict

8.0/10

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne sees a bit of the change being brought to the interior and the exterior of the car, which would make it look even more aggressive and sporty all while carrying the same driving characteristics, respectable fuel economy, excellent build quality, and powerful engines. With such brilliant packaging, we expect the Cayenne will again prove to be the best driving SUV, that will bring a smile to the face of every enthusiast.

Pros - *Soft suspensions *Well-cushioned seats *Turbocharged V6 engine *Good gas mileage

Cons - Everything is perfect in my Cayenne

Exceptional smooth performance Its driveability is better on all kinds of roads; the suspensions are very soft and we feel like gliding on highways while driving at 80+mph. The seats are well-cushioned and make it comfortable during long drives. Its turbocharged V6 engine takes the performance and acceleration to the next level. Unlike its traditional V6, this turbo engine renders better gas mileage and, I'm satisfied with the 23mpg. So far, so good, we never had any issues and kinda love our Porsche Cayenne. I got ...

Pros - Tonnes of power Blissful handling Extremely luxurious cabin.

Cons - Not really for off road Definitely not cheap.

An enjoyable SUV The moment I hear SUV, there are a few things that I’m reminded of and one of those things are off road ability and the Cayenne definitely doesn’t feel like it belongs on a rough trail and every time I land on a broken patch of road, I just don’t feel confident enough and I’m always scared if the alloy wheels would take some beating. Meanwhile, take the Cayenne to a smooth strip of asphalt and it does wonders as the SUV is fun to drive and does not feel like its massive. The turbo charged engine has ample...
