We could spend most of our lives learning the difference between good and bad, but when it comes to the 340-horsepower engine Cayenne Coupé, reviewed separately, and this 541-horsepower Cayenne Coupe Turbo, the difference is between good and great. Using a twin-turbo V-8 powertrain with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, the Coupe Turbo faithfully covers the road as the Associated Press reports. An even more powerful electrified version, the Cayenne Coupe Turbo S E-Hybrid, puts out 670 hp. The Coupe version comes with a sloping roof for a more aggressive look than usual SUV Cayenne Turbo, is also considered separately, but its looks sacrifice some rear cargo space and headroom for passengers.

What’s new for 2020?
The Cayenne Coupe Turbo is an all-new take on the 2020 model year and adds more horsepower to the fastback version of the Porsche Cayenne SUV line-up.
Price and which one to buy
We love the regular Cayenne, which comes standard with a 12.3-inch touchscreen, 10-speaker stereo and Wi-Fi hotspot—among other popular devices—and the configuration. Our favorites will expand upon that with thoughtful options.
Engine, transmission and performance
The Cayenne Coupe Turbo rips through the atmosphere thanks to a 541-horsepower twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that produces 567 pound-feet of torque. The Cayenne Coupe Turbo S E-Hybrid uses that engine plus a 134-horsepower electric motor to increase total output to 670 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque. Porsche’s fast-acting eight-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift handle shifts gears for both Cayenne Turbo powertrains using standard 21-inch wheels with a staggered setup, i.e. rear wheel and tire wider than the front wheel. Like the Cayenne Turbo square SUV, the Coupe’s handling is precise and nimble, while delivering a smooth ride. When we first sampled Cayenne Turbo Coupé, we compared its handling to that of a full-size sports sedan. Driving enthusiasts will appreciate its eager and sporty nature.
Towing capacity and tonnage
The Cayenne Turbo has plenty of towing capacity, with a maximum towing capacity of 7,716 pounds.
Real-world fuel economy and MPGe
The Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid is the most economical of the two, achieving a combined city and highway rating of 18 MPGe. It also has an all-electric range of 12 miles. The petrol-only Cayenne Coupe Turbo achieves fuel economy estimates of 15 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway by the EPA. Although the number of highways is unimpressive, plug-in hybrids are the most eco-friendly option for those living in urban areas.

Furniture, amenities and merchandise
Basically, Porsche provides a blank canvas inside the Cayenne Turbo Coupe for customers to customize. Everything from interior trim to seat belt colors to surface materials can be individually selected. The driver is faced with a stylish instrument cluster with an analog tachometer flanked by two 7.0-inch screens displaying selectable information.
