The Parkers VerdictShould you buy a Porsche Cayenne Coupe?

Absolutely – if you’re looking for an SUV that covers a broad range of options. Arguably, the more practical regular Cayenne is even more impressive in this regard because of its greater versatility, but the Coupe retains all of that car’s traits that makes it a great buy.

If you want it for a luxurious SUV, it ticks all the boxes. It may not be quite as plush and traditionally luxurious (and enormous) like a BMW X7 or Mercedes GLS – it takes a more techy approach with an interior that’s packed with the latest kit and an incredibly high-quality finish. It’s also surprisingly roomy despite its coupe roofline, and you can have five seats if you really want. But we think if you’re considering this car, you’re not as interested in the practical elements – you’ll want it because it offers something different like the Mercedes GLE Coupe and BMW X6 offer over their counterparts.

While the superfast Turbo and Turbo S E-Hybrid will undoubtedly appeal, if your budget doesn’t stretch to more than £100,000, we’d usher you in the direction of the E-Hybrid. The V6 engine it uses still sounds fantastic and it feels every inch the Porsche in the way it drives and handles, but the electric motor gives it an element of environmental-friendliness (ish) that means you can pootle around town with no tailpipe emissions.

It’s very easy to spend a fortune on optional extras, though, and Porsche leaves a lot of equipment on the options list, so spec your car carefully or you’ll end up with one with a surprisingly high list price.
