2013 Porsche Cayenne Safety

9.0
Safety
Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) typical test high-priced luxury vehicles. And with its niche-model status relative to other SUVs, the Cayenne is no exception.

Safety equipment in the Cayenne is very good, however. Standard items include anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, a full complement of airbags; pay a little more and you can get active-safety options like Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Assistant, and dynamic lighting.

Whether on- or off-road, the Cayenne's especially capable handling may also prove a safety asset, helping to avoid obstacles and accidents; on the trail, hill descent control and speed-set control help keep it safe.

Even though there's a lack of official safety ratings, the Cayenne offers plenty of active and passive features to put you at ease.
