We recommend

However, you can further enhance the safety of your vehicle with the available Assistance package. 

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Release date

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is expected to be released by the end of 2021.

Engine and Performance
2.0/10

No changes will be made to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo in 2022, neither in its mechanicals nor its powertrain. The new model will be powered by the same 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 541 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission, which will transmit all the power to all four wheels. It is capable of towing 7,700 pounds. 

The 2022 Cayenne is Porsche's most versatile SUV, with the emphasis on off-road capabilities, but it has a lot of riding comfort too. This transmission provides smooth and slick operation. The turbocharger allows for extra power that releases upon acceleration. These features combine to boost the Cayenne Turbo to 60 mph in just under 4 seconds. This Porsche drives like a sports sedan despite being a big SUV. A dynamic handling style is evident, as the steering is deft and the car is eager to corner. In spite of its stiffness, the suspension helps to smooth most bumps on the road. Because of the larger wheels on the Cayenne Turbo SUV, it rides a bit harsher.

Under the hood, all of the aforementioned vehicles have V8 engines that can generate huge amounts of power. With the Audi, you have an exceptionally balanced V8 that generates exceptional torque and horsepower. With the exception of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the Audi RS Q8, the BMW X5 M is the most powerful and is also one of the fastest SUVs. With a 0-60 time of 3.7 seconds, the Audi RS Q8 is the fastest accelerating car, followed by the BMW X5 M at 3.8 seconds. 176 mph is the top speed of the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR. 

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo, though equipped with a bigger V8, drives more efficiently than its competitors. Porsche always seems to be turning out cars that defy numbers, which is why the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV is no surprise. Despite packing 4.0 liters of power, this lightweight sedan still manages to get 19 mpg on the highway. This is just one of the numerous surprises you will get with this brand-new model. A Cayenne Turbo with a combined drive can achieve approximately 17 MPG when driven 15 miles in the city and 19 miles on the highway. As a result, it ranked among the top models in this segment on a comparative basis. The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a 23.7-gallon fuel tank, which allows it to travel 403 miles on a single fill-up.

When compared with its rivals, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo has a combined fuel economy of 17 mpg. The Range Rover Sport SVR, which offers 16 MPG in combined drive and has the largest fuel tank in the segment, follows closely behind. BMW and Audi have marginally lower figures and smaller fuel tanks than Porsche. 

Interior
8.0/10

Energy flows through the Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV. Its cabin is a masterful blend of form and function, beautiful materials, and premium workmanship that wraps you in a sleek cocoon of luxury and refinement. From top to bottom, inside out, it's performance--and comfort--from every perspective. The first thing you notice when you open the door to a 2022 Porsche Cayenne SUV is the feeling of comfort and convenience. The Cayenne is already a masterpiece of technology and design. The new interior is expected to be full of surprises: a spectacular panoramic glass roof that runs from the front to the rear seats, and especially a roomy luggage compartment, and innovations in sound reduction and active safety. And the backrests of the front seats have ventilation outlets that are also used for optional air-conditioning. 

The 2022 Cayenne Turbo seats up to five passengers and is one of the most spacious SUVs in its class. The Cayenne will soon be available with a new-generation Porsche Communication Management system that includes voice command, music streaming services, and connected navigation. From the interior to the exterior, the Cayenne is designed to give you a friendly experience. With spacious legroom and ergonomic seats, the Cayenne will keep you comfortable no matter where your adventure takes you.

Safety
3.0/10

Our opinion on its safety cannot be provided since the model has not yet been released. Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA has tested the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo. This vehicle, however, comes with a variety of safety features and in-car assistance options that ensure driver safety. Designed to offer a safe, secure, and comfortable driving experience, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV crushes the streets with its Turbo engine. As with all Porsche vehicles, safety is paramount with features like Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Stabilization Program (ESP), Advanced TPM (tire pressure monitoring). 

In the 2022 Cayenne Turbo, many safety features will be available including warning and brake assist, Porsche side-impact protection system, park assist (front and rear sensors) with a reversing camera, cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system, traction control, among others.

Competition
6.0/10

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV vs 2021 Audi RS Q8

While the Audi RS Q8 has a more powerful engine, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo offers better fuel efficiency. The Audi RS Q8 becomes an affordable alternative to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo and offers more standard features. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV will provide you with a smooth ride around town. It can also take you off-road if you ever need to. If you like to go fast with an SUV, the 2022 Cayenne is for you.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV vs the 2021 BMW X5 M

It is the Porsche Cayenne Turbo that reigns supreme when it comes to SUVs. Even with its more powerful engine and better performance, the BMW X5M offers lower mpg figures and a smaller range than the Cayenne. While the X5 M offers more space as well as more cargo space, it is also cheaper than the Cayenne. Although it offers a smoother ride, it cannot match the Turbo's ultra-smooth driving dynamics.

2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV vs the 2021 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR

Land Rover for its part doesn't require any introduction considering its standing in the SUV segment, especially the Range Rover Sport SVR, which is a worthy rival for Porsche's Cayenne Turbo. They both feature a unique design, powerful engines, and distinct technology controlled by smart controls. There is a V8 engine in the Range Rover Sport SVR, while the Porsche Cayenne Turbo SUV also has one. Both vehicles offer similar performance statistics in terms of horsepower, but the Cayenne Turbo SUV has a slightly higher top speed due to its more aerodynamic design. However, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR is a far superior vehicle with regard to space and comfort.

Final Verdict

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne is designed to be a sport utility vehicle that will give you the confidence to conquer any road whether it be on or off-road. This SUV has everything you could ask for. It comes with two rows of seating in which every passenger will have ample legroom. It features an array of luxury and convenience features including a surround sound system, heated front seats, and leather upholstery throughout. Whether you are looking for performance or comfort, the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Turbo is a smart choice.
