The Porsche Cayenne first hit the market back in 2003 as one of the first truly luxurious SUVs, offering the speed, handling, and build quality of a premium sports car. It continues to lead this particular pack, although the intervening years have seen a number of competitors arise, such as the Land Rover Discovery Sport. However, the Cayenne is still the only car in its class with the unrivalled prestige of a Porsche. It’s aesthetically appealing, a joy to take around town, and also a safe, convenient option for large family outings.
