The 2020 Porsche Cayenne is the Perfect Well-Rounded Family Vehicle

The Porsche Cayenne is a surprisingly versatile luxury SUV option that you may not have considered taking for a test drive before. For everything they have to offer, they aren’t necessarily the most affordable car on the market, though many buyers would claim they are well worth the price. Buying one slightly used, like a 2020 model, could mean big savings on a car that’s practically new, and you probably couldn’t tell much of a difference — but your wallet sure would. Overall, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne is the perfect well-rounded family vehicle that may tick all of your boxes.

Spacious, comfortable, luxurious

Sitting down in any seat of the 2020 Porsche Cayenne won’t leave you feeling disappointed. While it isn’t as cumbersome to drive as many full-sized SUVs, the interior is incredibly spacious and comfortable, with adjustable lumbar support for the front seat and rear seating that can comfortably fit most adults. It does all of this without sacrificing ample trunk space, too, and with the option for roof racks, it’s the perfect daily driver, weekend vehicle, and road trip car all in one, and Edmunds seems to agree.

Sports car quality

For a large, heavy SUV, you would probably guess that the 2020 Porsche Cayenne offers a somewhat mediocre acceleration and handling experience — and you’d be wrong. While the base model offers a smooth and nimble drive, higher trim levels with more powerful engines give the Cayenne a surprising amount of performance and power, making it a family-oriented vehicle that’s genuinely enjoyable to drive.

A more practical option

In order for a car to be described as being ‘well-rounded,’ it has to offer…well, everything. This means that for the average driver’s list of demands, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne has to tick off a majority of the boxes, and it does that surprisingly well. As a family vehicle, it’s incredibly practical, with plenty of space and comfort. Along with that, it offers luxury, utility, and a surprisingly sporty driving experience, especially among the higher trim levels.
