The word "Sport" may be part of "SUV," and plenty of them claim to possess sporting credentials of some sort. Dynamic handling! 0- 60 in 5 seconds! That's all well and good, but few actually deliver a truly engaging driving experience that comes anywhere close to a sports sedan or sports car. The 2020 Porsche Cayenne, on the other hand, comes extremely close, besting virtually every other SUV when it comes to being fun to drive. It also offers a diverse selection of models, powertrains and, for 2020, body styles, thanks to the new Cayenne Coupe. Inside, there's easy-to-use technology, sensational build quality and an endless array of customization options (the counter to that is Porsche nickel-and-dimes you a bit on features). So if you're looking for a true sport utility vehicle and you've got the money, the 2020 Cayenne is a very good place to start. What's new with Cayenne for 2020? There's a new body style this year: the Cayenne Coupe. It still has four doors, but it has a more rakish "coupe-like" roofline vaguely reminiscent of a 911. It provides a different look some prefer, but it comes at the expense of practicality and a higher price. Also noteworthy for 2020 is the new, range-topping Turbo S E-Hybrid model available in both body styles. This is the hyper-performance model that utilizes Porsche's plug-in hybrid technology to bolster acceleration as much as fuel economy.

Although better than past efforts, the Cayenne isn't as overtly luxurious in materials or ambiance as some may expect for its hefty price point. There are also commonly standard features you have to pay extra for, such as proximity entry and keyless start. Now, the options list can be utilized to rectify both situations (note the especially fancy extended leather interior below), but the price tag will inevitably start moving faster than the Cayenne itself. That said, fit and finish is up to Porsche's usual exceptional standards, and the design certainly speaks to the Cayenne being different than the norm. The center console rises to meet the downward-sloping dash in a manner that evokes Porsche's sports cars. Apart from toggle switches for certain climate controls and a roller wheel volume control, the center console's various "buttons" are actually touch-sensitive with haptic feedback to confirm that you actually pressed what you intended to. Though such controls have a dubious track record of success, the Cayenne's actually work quite well. Porsche's touchscreen interface is also exceptional – it's a wide 12.3 inches that's easy to reach and see. The best bit is the customizable home screen, which is divided into three tiles that you can assign to whatever controls or readouts you prefer. You can also subdivide those tiles in half or into quarters to add even more preferred functions and readouts. For example, we put radio presets on the left, radio info in the middle and the navigation map on the right. When using Apple …
