Superb bit off kit. I should imagine RR have already acquired one of these to strip down to try and find out how the hell it manages to go round corners without leaning over.

Great flexibility as an Intercontinental express or a shopping trolley to the local hypermarket followed by a trip to the Gymkhana or Point-to-Point towing the horsebox.

This particular Cayenne must be one of the most effortless machines to drive over widely ranging roads and surfaces.

My last trip in a Cayenne was in a snow storm in Munich, which posed no threat to the stability of the vehicle.

Much a detest Diesel's,not for the fact they are hard to pass,it's there global warming properties,Diesel is STILL 4 or 5p a litre dearer than Petrol(WHY?,can anyone explain?),but,in this context,it's the ideal package,lots of power and torque,comfy interior,not sure about the key fob,must rattle a bit on the fascia,and,as Steve said,a lot of car for the money.

I'm not in the market for a big SUV but, if I was, I think I would have to be mad to buy a Range Rover rather than one of these.


I'm a disillusioned former Citroëniste.
