cayenne is a killer...this is more like a soccer mom suv...

plus cayenne has the new 500 hp Turbo S...I personally think there is no comparison..I have seen both from the inside and comfort wise cayenne is better..and look wise anyday cayenne is..

cayenne Turbo S is below 5 sec mark.. i think if i remember correctly...plus the 350+hp V8 FX45 will smoke this..too bad this will cost 1.5 times that of the FX

How the hell did the Cayenne come into this topic?

Anyway, I hope they've done something about the ride. Clarkson, in his review of the Toureg had said, you have two modes to adjust the harshness of the suspension - sports and comfort. In sports mode, the ride becomes so hard that it is unbearable. In comfort mode, the ride becomes so soft that the whole vehicle wallows like a buffalo. People in the rear seat will definitely throw up.

Looks like the Touareg just couldn't resist the Cayenne Turbo charm. And i guess Porsche got it's E51 power upgrade ready just in time too. Let the SUV-BHP wars begin!

PS: In 2003/04, Porsche sold 39,913 units of the Cayenne. Not bad, i say.
