Expert Quotes:

front and rear park assist are standard on the Turbo

available safety features include ABS, traction control, and antiskid system with rollover sensors
Consumer Guide

Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA have crash-tested the 2010 Porsche Cayenne, but Porsche engineering and a wide selection of standard safety equipment, including front-seat side airbags, rear seat thorax side airbags and front and rear side curtain airbags, plus a bumper system with high-strength cross-members and two crush elements.

The 2010 Porsche Cayenne comes standard with a wide array of safety features. Kelley Blue Book likes the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) system that’s standard on all Cayennes, noting that it "guards against rollover and increases the effectiveness of the brakes on loose and slippery surfaces." Edmunds reviewers praise the Cayenne’s long list of standard safety features, including the full complement of airbags. The only difference in standard safety features among the trim levels is that the Porsche Cayenne Turbo gets a "front- and rear-obstacle-detection system," according to Consumer Guide.

That obstacle detection system aids overall visibility and driver awareness, as Consumer Guide notes, thanks to its "rearview camera," though this feature "requires [the] navigation system." Motor Trend also points out the Cayenne’s unique “software program that helps to eliminate trailer sway.”

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
