The 2022 Porsche Cayenne is a sporty crossover that is popular in Russia and has long gained cult status. Among the competitors of the model are other Germans and the Italian exotic Maserati Levante. In terms of looks, the automaker remains true to itself. The front end is still firm. It will always be recognizable as a Porsche. From generation to generation, the car undergoes minor changes in appearance. The last time they touched the taillights, which received a jumper. In the minimum configuration Tiptronic for 6,280,000 rubles under the hood of the cross there is already a powerful 340-horsepower engine, which allows it to accelerate from zero to one hundred in 6, 2 seconds. At the top is the Tiptronic Turbo S E-Hybrid at a price of 14,040,000 rubles. The SUV in this design is equipped with a 550 horsepower engine. In this case, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is achieved in 3.8 seconds. These are the indicators of a sports car.

The car received a whole range of motors. The most affordable is a 340-horsepower three-liter six-cylinder turbo engine. Its torque is 450 N * m. Acceleration from zero to one hundred is 6.2 seconds at a top speed of 245 km / h. There is also a hybrid version. There, the maximum speed is 253 km / h, and the acceleration time to 100 km / h is reduced to exactly 5 seconds. One step higher is a biturbo unit with a capacity of 440 horsepower and a volume of 2.9 liters. Its maximum torque is 550 N * m. The acceleration time from 0-100 km / h is 5.2 seconds, and the top speed is increased to 265 km / h.
Next comes the even more powerful 460 horsepower 4-liter twin-turbo engine with a maximum torque of 620 Nm. Together with it, the acceleration time from 0-100 km / h is 4.5 seconds, and the top speed is 270 km / h. It is also the first engine in the eight-cylinder range. At the top is another 4-liter biturbo engine. It develops 550 horsepower at 770 N * m of torque. The maximum speed is 286 km / h. The first "hundred" is reached in 4.1 seconds. A hybrid version is also available. It is even more dynamic. In this case, the maximum speed increases to 295 km / h, and the acceleration time to 100 km / h is already 3.8 seconds. All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The Porsche Cayenne 2022 is a safe car, as confirmed by Euro NCAP crash tests. The models were awarded five stars. Here is how the ratings were distributed: 95% - for the protection of the driver and front passenger, 80% - for passengers-children, 73% - for pedestrians. And finally, 62% were given for the presence of all kinds of security systems. Let's note one unpleasant moment. So, in a head-on collision across the entire width of the body of the passengers painted orange (low level of protection).
Handling and off-road performance
The Porsche Cayenne 2022, as we have already noted, is a car with a sporty character. Even in the basic version, it is capable of providing good dynamics and handling, but it may lack the softness of the suspension. Of course, a lot depends on the version. Turbo gives one of the most dynamic acceleration among all crossovers in the world and excellent "steering", which can not be provided by cheaper configurations. The car is designed primarily for city driving. However, he is able to travel outside the asphalt. Air suspension, aerodynamic underbody and various systems contribute to this.
Advantages and disadvantages
Of course, the Cayenne has a long list of advantages, but the disadvantages are felt much more acutely at this cost. Let's start by listing the advantages:
- good dynamics, especially in expensive versions;
- a comfortable interior, including for rear passengers;
- modern multimedia system;
- large trunk;
- the car provides a high level of safety.
And now about the cons, without which there is no way:
- high cost and expensive service;
- rigid suspension;
- a lot of additional options that I would like to see by default, especially in versions with a price tag of more than 10 million.
Porsche design is another story. The Cayenne remains recognizable and the changes are very minor. The look has become more sporty and impetuous. The taillights now form a single unit thanks to the light strip connecting them. At the front - all the same headlights, which are recognizable to all previous generations and almost any other Porsche. Below are the radiator blinds, which are active here.
The salon is quite luxurious, and it, of course, depends on the equipment. For example, it can be included in Alcantara and wood trims. On the front console, the enlarged display of the infotainment system is striking. In general, this part is similar in design to the Porsche Panamera. A lot of buttons can scare someone off, although everything is clearly done with taste.
