One the few dedicated performance crossovers, the five-passenger Porsche Cayenne offers all-weather capability along with thrilling handling and potent acceleration on dry pavement. Yes, that even applies to the eco-conscious S Hybrid.

Choosing Your Porsche Cayenne Hybrid

The S Hybrid is powered by a supercharged 3-liter gas engine and a 34kW electric motor. Combined, they pump out 380 horsepower and 427 pound-feet of torque. It’s not surprising that the Cayenne is quick: zero to 60 mph comes in 6.1 seconds. What’s unexpected is its robust towing capacity of 7,700 pounds, which puts it in contention with truck-based SUVs.

The hybrid setup is matched to an eight-speed automatic, and permanent all-wheel drive is standard. Expect about 21 mpg in combined driving.

Like other Cayenne models, the S Hybrid comes equipped with luxuries such as leather seating with driver memory, LED running lights, a power liftgate with a separately opening window, a 10-speaker sound system with a 7-inch touchscreen, and a sliding and reclining rear seat. The S Hybrid also gets an upgraded power steering unit that’s optional on other models.

You have of choice of no less than 11 wheel designs, three front-seat styles, and interior trim in wood, aluminum or carbon fiber.

Most popular options are grouped into packages:
