The Porsche Cayenne Turbo for 2021, powered by a 541-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine with an eight-speed sports transmission, is fantastic in both performance and efficiency. The Turbo S E-Hybrid model (powered with the same powertrain) offers even more extreme power and performance figures of 670 horsepower. 

The Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid employs a similar powerful V-8 found on the standard Turbo model to reach an unforgettable 670 hp output. The Porsche Cayenne Turbo was recently upgraded by adding a 134-hp electric motor for improved performance and increased fuel efficiency. 

The 2019 Cayenne Turbo S fuel efficiency is astounding, and its acceleration is incredible. The only drawback we found in our vehicle testing was that it seats up to five passengers. 

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The fuel economy of the Turbo is good, as it has an EPA rating of 15 mpg city and 19 mpg highway. Fuel efficiency rivals the BMW X5 M with a 14/19 MPG and Jaguar’s F-Pace SVR with 16/24. 

Its acceleration battery pack can complete a full recharge in about 2.5 hours when connected to a 240-volt, 30-amp source, and the SUV has a pure electric range of more than 20 miles is also impressive. The Cayenne Turbo reaches 60 mph in just four seconds and hits 120 mph a mere 12 seconds later, making it the world’s quickest SUV.

Futuristically luxurious, the 2021 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S interior is as visually impressive as it is thrilling. Build quality is exceptional; complete customization of the cabin allows for individual selection of everything from seat trim to colorful seat belts and more (optional luxuries). 

All Cayenne Turbo models (Turbo and S E-Hybrid) come with a heated steering wheel and heated front and rear seats. The dash is similar to Porsche’s 911, with an analog tachometer flanked by two 7.0-inch screens that display selectable information such as navigation maps for the passenger and driver, respectively.
