Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is a richly appointed luxury SUV that earns its Porsche badge. It's one of few cars on the road that manage to feel special in standard or top trims, despite a $100,000 price difference.

Pros
Strong engines
Superlative handling for the big SUV
Lots of options to consider
Good performance from hybrid

Cons
Not particularly efficient with space inside
Base model isn’t really thrilling
Unbelievably expensive options

By: 
thecarconnection.com

There are no significant changes to the 2018 Porsche Cayenne.As far as performance and luxury go, we're confident that most shoppers will find the base Cayenne to their liking. Porsche buyers tend to crave a bit more performance, however, so we think the Cayenne S hits a good balance point for power and price.

PROS
Truly impressive handling for a crossover SUV
Wide selection of powerful engines available
Exquisite interior and build quality
Plenty of customization options

CONS
Quite a few optional features should be standard given the price tag
Relatively small cargo capacity for the segment

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne ranked #3 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Porsche Cayenne has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 58 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Potent optional engines
Sharp handling
Handsome, well-built interior
Quiet, comfortable ride

Cons
Small cargo hold
Abundant buttons and knobs can be overwhelming
Starting price and options are more expensive than most

By: 
usnews.com

The BMW X6 M is available in only one feature-loaded trim, so there's not much to recommend. This is a BMW, however, so there are several other option boxes you can check, and the most appealing might be the Executive package. Highlights include cooled front seats, heated rear seats, wireless smartphone charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a host of driver safety aids (including blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, surround-view cameras). It's a pricey package, but it's packed with details that will make the X6 M that much more enjoyable.

PROS
Performance is astonishing for an SUV
High-quality interior packed with features
Seats are comfortable and supportive

CONS
Distinctive exterior design limits rear-seat room and cargo space
Sporty suspension may feel too firm for some drivers, passengers
Gas pedal sometimes responds slowly in low-speed driving

By: 
edmunds.com

The X6 M is a style item: it has sleek lines, a plush interior, and a coveted badge on the hood. It’s also stunningly quick and handles more like a sports car than anything that weighs 5000 pounds has any right to. It’s powered by a 567-hp twin-turbo V-8. An eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard, and up to 100 percent of torque can be routed to either the front or rear wheels, depending on driving conditions. It’s less practical than the boxy X5 M, but it’ll turn more heads.

Pros
Blistering performance,
commanding seating position.

Cons
Harsh ride,
constricted cargo space.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The BMW X6 M is a large SUV with a coupe body that offers sports car handling with all the practicality of a big 4×4.Driving is where the X6 M not only impresses but even amazes – there is endless grip and you rarely feel the 2.3-tonne weight of the car.

Pros
Astonishingly fast
High-quality interior
Great engine

Cons
Little bit of road noise
A tad firm
Not cheap
