Porsche Cayenne (2010-2017) review – design
It might be big and ugly, but the Cayenne is amazingly agile and truly involving to drive
The Cayenne has never been described as a pretty car, and despite the latest design being the most attractive yet, it’s still not a looker. Despite some similar elements, it doesn’t look half as good as its smaller brother, the Macan.
You can tell the plug-in S E-Hybrid model from other 2015 Cayennes by its acid green brake callipers (a lurid hue borrowed from the 918 Spyder) and the green background to its badges.
The GTS shares much of its front end with the Cayenne Turbo but adds a Sport Design package comprising thicker side sills and flared arches. Unique 20-inch black alloy wheels are another GTS signifier, as are the badges on the front doors.
The GTS gets the most distinctive interior, too, with ‘GTS’ embossed Alcantara and leather sports seats and very nicely executed stitching on the dashboard. The whole thing can be ordered with an appropriately loud ‘go faster’ paintjob as well.
