2013 Porsche Cayenne
2013 Porsche Cayenne

New For 2013

The Cayenne Diesel finally comes to the U.S. and beats its Hybrid counterpart by 6 mpg on the highway.


For those who still need convincing that the Cayenne is a “real” Porsche, look no further than the proliferation of variants: there are now six of them using five different engines. The newest member is a diesel. Its downright decent fuel economy—29 mpg on the highway—combines with still snappy performance to make it a more appealing green option than the more expensive, less efficient Cayenne S Hybrid. The Hybrid achieves 20/23 mpg, thanks to the 47-hp electric motor paired with its Audi-sourced 3.0-liter V-6, but suffers from the dynamic pitfalls typical of this technology, including strange-feeling brakes. Those who’d rather not save the planet in their German luxury crossover can opt for the Cayenne Turbo and its 4.8-liter twin-turbo V-8, which feels much more agile than its predecessor. In fact, all Cayennes are slimmer than they once were, owing to an aluminum-intensive structure and a revised all-wheel-drive system that shaves up to 400 pounds from the previous generation, depending on options. There are, of course, lots of options, from carbon-ceramic brakes to $2330 painted air-conditioning vents. The interior, even without those fancy A/C vents, will please even the pickiest luxury customers. The cornucopia of buttons on the center console will confound drivers at first, but it becomes rather intuitive over time.


Front, front side, driver’s knee, and side curtain air bags are standard, as are traction and stability control and ABS.

2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel Front Right View 1
Although diesel-powered cars are becoming less of an oddity in the U.S., they are still relatively rare in the sport-utility segment. The Porsche Cayenne clatters a bit at start up and idle but otherwise drives like a gas-powered vehicle. Acceleration is less explosive than in the Cayenne S and GTS but it still gets to 60 mph in a respectable 7.2 seconds. Acceleration is most impressive from a stop and all-wheel drive prevents embarrassing tire squealing off the line.
