At the base level, the 2014 Porsche Cayenne is surprisingly sensible—yet you can easily push the price sky high with higher-performance models, accessories and options.

Expert Quotes:

as usual with Porsches, your susceptibility to options will have a huge effect on the final cost
Car and Driver

Porsche gets credit for including a USB audio input and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as a touchscreen infotainment interface, as standard equipment across all 2011 Cayenne models.
Edmunds

high on our wish list is an updated navigation system, as the current incarnation with its undersized and graphically so-so display is definitely a full cut below those found in more recently redesigned M-B models
Kelley Blue Book

Our biggest gripe is that the nav screen is still located low on the dash

For audiophiles, an available Bose and Burmester premium sound system produces lovely lows, mids, and highs
Motor Trend

The 2014 starts at around $50,000, but Turbo models can easily top $150k with options, and the top Turbo S starts at $146,975.

Go with the base model, and there's really no sacrifice in features versus a BMW or Mercedes-Benz product in the same price range. Bluetooth, iPod/USB, and more are all standard.

While the top Turbo S models are arguably worth it from a performance standpoint alone, what you get at the base end of the lineup isn't shabby at all. Base V-6 Cayenne models offer a respectable base set of features--nearly complete, in fact, with all of the luxury, connectivity, technology, and comfort features you'd expect. Bluetooth, iPod/USB, and more are all standard.

This Sport Chrono package also adds an analog and digital timer located at the center of the dash, keeping the driver updated with information such as the total driving time, lap distance covered so far and individual lap times. It also shows latitudinal and longitudinal acceleration via the TFT display in the instrument cluster.

Available options, some of which are standard on the top-end Cayenne Turbo, include ParkAssist with rearview camera, an electric slide/tilt moonroof, dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, and both Bose and Burmester audio systems. The Burmester in particular is an auditory feast.

The optional Adaptive Cruise Control system can maintain following distances at speeds between 20 and 100 mph, and it will prime the braking system when needed and even stop. A quick press of the accelerator will reactivate the system.

Conclusion

At the base level, the 2014 Porsche Cayenne is surprisingly sensible—yet you can easily push the price sky high with higher-performance models, accessories and options.

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.
