Which Porsche Cayenne model is right for you?

Posted 30th January 2023

Heralded as ‘The Third Porsche’ when first launched, the Porsche Cayenne sits atop the range in terms of size, practicality and family friendliness.

At Dick Lovett Porsche, we understand that it can be confusing when looking at all of the Porsche Cayenne models available and determining which derivative is the perfect match for your everyday needs. We have summarised the key points below, to help make that first step easier.

The Cayenne is now in its third generation. A testament to the admiration the model receives in the SUV market. With a dynamic design and sports car D.N.A, the Cayenne is perfect for everyday driving and adventurous getaways.


All Porsche Cayenne models are fitted with intuitive 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmissions. This allows for the most effective gear changes, fuel efficient journeys and unrivalled ride comfort.

SUV or Coupé?

The Porsche Cayenne is available in two unique body styles. The SUV shape exudes adventuristic traits and effortless practicality while the Coupé body design is more dramatic and sleeker, sporting the iconic 911 fly line shape. Whichever model shape you opt for, the unique Porsche silhouette is unmistakable.
