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.

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.

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.
