Expert Quotes:

safety junkies will appreciate such technologies as a dynamic Bi-Xenon light system, lane-change assist (aka, blind-spot monitor), and adaptive cruise control.
Motor Trend

thick A-pillars allow the Cayenne to pass the NHTSA's new roof-crush standards, yet they also hamper forward visibility, particularly when making left-hand turns
Edmunds

With the Cayenne’s high nose and the machine jacked up, we couldn’t see what was directly in front, especially when cresting a grade.
Car and Driver

The Cayenne hasn't been crash-tested by either of the U.S. agencies, due to its relative niche status compared to other crossovers—and its very high price tag. Yet there are plenty of assurances built into this Porsche's feature list.

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.

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

Conclusion

You'll find plenty of reassurance from the active and passive features in the 2014 Cayenne—even in the absence of crash-test results.

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.
