For a rather large, performance-focused SUV, the 2014 Porsche Cayenne isn't as bad as you might expect. In fact, with either the Diesel or Hybrid options, it could be called downright responsible.

The Cayenne Diesel factors in at an excellent EPA-rated 19 mpg city, 29 highway Meanwhile, the Cayenne V-6 and S Hybrid (20 mpg city, 24 highway) models are quite impressive considering their stunning, quick acceleration.
