Porsche Cayenne Diesel 3.0 Review
Dirty diesel it is not!

Porsche purists would scoff at the thought of a diesel tainting the marque’s well established motorsports DNA but one can’t deny that the brand has seen much success with its most un-Porsche Porsche. The Cayenne has brought the brand the fortunes it needed to continue their passion for making one of the world’s greatest sports cars. So it really should deserve more affection than enthusiasts give it.

While the Cayenne Turbo and S models are better suited for those looking for a performance oriented SUV, the Diesel is for the pragmatic. Under the bonnet, is a Volkswagen derived oil burning V6 that it shares with the Touareg.

Like most diesels, horsepower isn’t particularly impressive at 262bhp. However for a family workhorse where load pulling is more important than top speeds, the engine produces a healthy amount of torque.
