The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S is speculated to be a continuation of the 2021 model year. Meaning it will host the same 434 hp 2.9L Twin Turbo V-6 engine that marks a 4.9 seconds 0-60 MPH acceleration. Expected to be priced at $86,800 for sale, the Cayenne S features a premium interior with a cargo capacity of up to 60.3 cu-ft. And the myriad of customizations with "Paint To Sample" further give wings to its exterior styling. 



Moreover, the Porsche Cayenne S can be leased at $1,169/month for 42 months with a $7,999 down payment. Also, there are other sportier Porsche including the 434 hp Porsche Cayenne S Coupe and the 455 hp Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid in production too that can be an asset to drive. Regarding its rivals, the BMW X5, Mercedes-AMG GLE-Class, and Audi SQ8 are among a few to name contending to offer the parallel ooze.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

"The Cayenne is the driving enthusiast's first choice for a luxury SUV." - Car And Driver

Though the 2022 Porsche Cayenne S might remain unchanged yet its towing capacity of 7,700 lbs is a class prowess on its own. Being a single trim production, it offers a melange of both comfort and luxury interior at an assumed price of $86,800. Its 2.9L V-6 with 434 hp thrusts a 0-60 MPH dash of less than 5 seconds, leaving no gap for it from being a complete sport-luxury SUV. 

In general, the Porsche Cayenne S depreciated by 50% in a 5-year time span meaning the resale value might estimate around $43,000 ballpark. While the charges for maintenance rounds off to a hefty $8,000 in these 5 years and repairing costs almost $3,800. However, it does sport some inspiring packages such as the Off-Road Package at $2,000 and Premium Package at $4,590 that can push the overall cost to own it a little higher too.

Buying Advice

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S has been given all the features that make it a worthy luxury SUV. Be it high performance audio or enticing accents, it justifies their presence and relevance. Also, the corresponding tech-ends on the inside and power surge on the outside would leave anyone spellbound. So, one should consider it but with Sport Chrono Package and optional massage-ventilation seats to really get the best out of it.

Features
8.5/10

"With powerful turbocharged engines, an agile multi-link suspension, and race-inspired technology, much of the Porsche Cayenne's spec sheet reads like that of a world-class sports car." - TrueCar

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S ravishes the space with its feature-rich cabin that includes the Porsche Communication Management System and Connect Plus with Navigation. Along with these, the 10-speaker Hi-Fi Sound System and 12.3-inch touchscreen build up for infotainment and entertainment engagement. 

The Porsche Cayenne S has been designed to go in flow with its dynamic 19-inch Cayenne S wheels. The comfort is bestowed with its 8-way power-adjustable high-cushioned seats with partial leatherette. And handling is flashed over with the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management and Power Steering Plus working in sync with each other.

Engine and Performance
7.0/10

"Truly impressive handling for a crossover SUV." - Edmunds

Sitting right at the heart of the 2022 Porsche Cayenne S is a 2.9 L twin-turbo V6 engine that churns out 434 hp and 405 lb-ft  of torque. Mated with an 8-speed automatic transmission, it delivers the power performance  to all the wheels through an AWD. And to fine tune such power distribution it comes with driver selectable mode switching among Normal, Sport, Sport Plus, and Individual.   

The Porsche Cayenne S integrates an Adaptive Air Suspension at $2,170 that adjusts the suspension firmness to dampen the undulation. It also monitors the wheel alignment and maintains the ride height. Though it gets Porsche Traction Management and Porsche Active Suspension Management as standards for maximum grip but it is that optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus at $1,500 that enables it to have that extra nudge at the contact patch. 

The Cayenne S rages on the track from 0-60 MPH in 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 164 MPH. However, the clock ticks 0.3 seconds less when it comes equipped with the Sport Chrono Package priced at 1,130. Also, it has been armed with 15.3-inch front and 13-inch rear vented disc brakes along with ABS, Brake Assist, and Hill Descent Control for optimal braking.

Based on the comparison, the BMW X5 is faster than Cayenne S by 0.8 seconds in 0-60 MPH acceleration. Part of the reason goes to its 89 hp more power figure than the latter. The SQ8 is also 0.6 seconds quicker than the Porsche but costs almost $5,000 more. The GLE-Class being $13,000 less expensive lags behind the Cayenne by 11 MPH when it comes to their respective top speeds.  

Fuel Economy
5.0/10

"Porsche Cayenne is great at most things, but not fuel efficiency." - The Car Connection

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S returns a fuel economy of 20 MPG on average. And with such mileage, its range goes up to 521 miles when coupled with its 23.7-gallon fuel tank. However, this particular parameter hardly makes any sense while choosing an SUV in this segment.

As far as rivals are concerned, the Cayenne S has the best-in-class range reach, even more than the GLE-Class by 25 miles. This gap increases to 78 miles against X5, thanks to Cayenne's 1.2-gallon bigger tank and 2 MPG better economy.  

Interior
6.0/10

"One quick glance and it's easy to see the Panamera's influence on the Porsche Cayenne's stunning interior." - Kelley Blue Book

The interior of the 2022 Porsche Cayenne S is simply premium and exotic for its 5-interior trims. Right from the standard Slate Grey and Black/Mojave Beige at $390 standard interior formats to Club Leather ones at $5,170, the cabin casts a contrasting appeal. And it is further expounded by its 6-seating accents that include the shades of Graphite Blue/ Chalk at $4,180 and many more.

The Porsche Cayenne S caters to insiders with its 8-way power-adjustable front seats. However, one can opt for 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats Plus with comfort memory after spending extra $1,710. Not just that, there are plenty of inspiring assets on offer namely the front massage seat function and front-rear ventilation with an investment of $2,850. Regarding its cargo space, the volume ranges from 27.2 cu-ft to 60.3 cu-ft.

Collating such dimensions notes that the Cayenne S lacks cargo space of nearly 6 cu-ft against the X5. Even SQ8 has an edge of 3 cu-ft of cargo capacity over Porsche. However, it is the seating capacity of 5 passengers that remains consistent throughout. Apart from all these, Porsche has calibrated an array of features in the Cayenne infotainment unit such as the Porsche Communication Management System as standard.

Cayenne also hosts a Hi-Fi Sound System with 10 speakers in its 2022 S lineup. The Connect Plus with Online Navigation and SiriusXM Satellite Radio are also embedded. Alongside these, there is a Head-Up Display at $1,720, Night Vision estimating $2,420, and Ambient Lighting at $430 that can be availed of for a more generous cabin. Some of the notable features have been listed below:

  • Power front seats
  • Partial/Full leather upholstery
  • Porsche Communication Management System
  • 12.3 touchscreen infotainment system
  • Hi-Fi Sound System with 10 speakers
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • WiFi hotspot and Porsche Connect
  • Connect Plus with Online Navigation
Exterior
6.0/10

"The Cayenne is expensive no matter how you spec it, and it's disappointing how many features we'd expect to be standard are expensive optional extras." - Motor Trend

Sculpted with fine curves and patches, the 2022 Porsche Cayenne S is a class of innumerable color cladding with its Paint To Sample. In addition to that, Porsche offers an 11-exterior color pallet that has Carrara White Metallic at $800 and Carmine Red at $3,150. The front comes with Automatic-Activated LED headlamps that can be upgraded with Porsche Dynamic Lighting with a $960 investment.   

The Porsche Cayenne S enjoys a dominant road presence that is complemented by its 19-inch, 20-inch, 21-inch and 22-inch wheels. It also receives a panoramic roof on top for both rows. Along with that, the carbon fiber rear diffuser, high-gloss black roof spoiler & front air intakes, and carbon fiber C blades are engineered to silhouette with the SportDesign Package (Carbon Fiber) charging $8,370.

All these happen to aid in better dynamics when deprived of technologies and assistance. The same is true when it is pitted against the SQ8 as well. Some of the notable exterior values have been mentioned below:

Safety
8.0/10

"The Cayenne isn't likely to be crash tested anytime soon, but it comes with a reasonable set of active safety features." CarsDirect

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S has not been given a safety rating either by NHTSA OR IIHS simply for its limited stature and price tag. However, its Integrated Porsche 4D-Chassis Control and Porsche Side Impact Protection System explicitly indicate the structural integrity and relative impact resilience it might possess. Some of the active and passive safety features have been listed below: 

  • Integrated Porsche 4D-Chassis Control
  • Porsche Side Impact Protection System
  • Tire pressure monitoring system 
  • Park assist
  • Warn and Brake Assist
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Traffic sign recognition system

2022 Porsche Cayenne S vs. 2022 BMW X5

The 2022 BMW X5 produces quite a lot of power and torque compared to the 2022 Porsche Cayenne S. It is comparatively larger as well than the latter. But the Bimmer does struggle in its handling dynamics and range reach against the Porsche Cayenne S. However, it is that price tag for which the values one gets in the X5 is satisfactory and hence makes it the preference here. 

2022 Porsche Cayenne S vs. 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLE-Class

The Mercedes-AMG GLE-Class has an edge in luxury and ambiance over the 2022 Porsche Cayenne S. It has got that spaciousness inside the cabin too alongside a slightly lowered performance curve. The tech-ends are also top-notch in the GLE-Class and that too at a relatively lower price. Therefore, it has to be Mercedes-AMG over Porsche Cayenne S.  

2022 Porsche Cayenne S vs. 2022 Audi SQ8

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S often finds itself in misery against the SQ8 when it comes to acceleration prowess. However, that gets even with a higher top speed. As far as accents and touches are concerned, both appear to be at par with each other. Even the exterior styling does not tend to make any difference between the two. So, one can go for any one of them. 

 

Final Verdict
7.0/10

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne S has got the agility and nimble handling that make it a fun to drive SUV. The comfort inside the cabin and safety prowess ensure a carefree throttling and highly involving experience altogether. However, this segment does have other potent rivals too at a more reasonable price. Therefore, it is recommended to look for the rivals as well alongside Porsche Cayenne S.
