2012 Porsche Cayenne Safety

9.0
Safety
Like other high-end sport/luxury SUVs, the 2012 Cayenne hasn't been tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The Cayenne does, however, come with standard anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, a full complement of airbags, plus options like dynamic lighting, Lane Change Assistant, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more.

In off-road situations, hill descent control and speed-set control help when going downhill, while on the road, the Cayenne's capable handling helps avoid obstacles and accidents.

Despite the lack of official safety ratings, the Cayenne's standard and available safety equipment provides a degree of comfort and ease.
