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 T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

By:

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value
