Although a new hybrid trim is added to the Cayenne lineup in 2020, no changes are in store for the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo in this model year. Both trims stand out for their exceptional power, one of the most distinguishing characteristics between the Cayenne and most other SUVs. The Cayenne excels in performance, handling, and capabilities at all trim levels, although the S and the Turbo have their engines that offer even more power. A lengthy list of standard features is added to the S trim, while the Turbo trim has added amenities. Along with the standard features that they have, both the S and the Turbo have a wide range of available options.


Performance characteristics vary between the S and the Turbo trims. The S trim gets a turbo 2.9L engine with a V6 configuration. This engine gives the S a powerful kick of 434 HP and 406 LB-FT in torque. The engine is paired with a Power Steering Plus mechanism that reduces your steering effort while driving at lower speeds. The engine on the Turbo is an upgraded V8 engine with four cylinders. Equipped with this engine, the Cayenne produces more power at 541 HP, and it creates over 560 LB-FT in torque. There is also a hybrid variant of the Turbo trim that creates over 650 HP.


Both the S and the Turbo have a sporty and luxurious appearance. A panoramic sunroof is standard on the S, while the Turbo adds adaptive headlights and lights with bright LED bulbs. The Turbo also gets a panoramic sunroof. Custom packages are available to add more features for both trims, including night vision and sporty exterior styling accents.

Parking sensors are included in front and back. The Turbo adds faux suede headliner to the list of features. It also gets a power-adjustable steering wheel.
