2016 Porsche Cayenne 3.0L V6 Diesel Review

I drive a diesel 2016 Porsche Cayenne and give you the quick info on what this car is about. If you’re looking for an SUV in the $72k range, you can get a Porsche Cayenne with a V6 diesel. You’d think a diesel Porsche SUV is a crazy idea, but it’s a strange mix of abilities, details, and it’s subtle about its ways.

  1. wasn’t it originally a v-8 twin turbo? What happened? They down-sized it?

  2. Hey Bryan, what suv do you recommend me to buy? I was thinking about the Q5 but its really kinda small, Q7 too big.

  3. Surprising that a Cayenne has a lot of road noise! Big turn off the road noise for a $65K base price car! Totally crappy! Diesel are suppose to be louder to then gasoline engines and not be able to startup in the cold climates too! I not going with a diesel!

  4. You can no longer buy a new Cayenne diesel, or a certified used one from Porsche, here in the USA. VW put a "stop-sale" order on all of their 3.0-liter diesels in all of their brands until their "fix" is accepted by CARB and the EPA. That hasn’t happened yet.

  5. Nice car! And for a "base" model it seems pretty well equipped… I say that because in Europe, a base model is pretty basic and you can easily double the price with options you’d think would come standard. If not, why not a Touareg V6 TDi? Other than badge snobbery, it’s pretty much alike but a lot cheaper!

    On another note, have you ever looked at the 2015 Skoda Superb they have in Europe? It’s GORGEOUS but yet so inexpensive and has all the components of a VW!! And it’s similar to an Audi A8 in size!!! It would sell well over here I think. Unfortunately, we’re stuck with the american Passat…

  6. The sexiest suv on the planet with that Diesel engine reminding me of a regular sport sound with a very deep voice. Beautiful interior hands down👍🏾 "AWESOME " job Porsche.

  7. mine all mine!

  8. Toyota land cruiser might be better at this price range

  9. +Vlad Saghin While the VW Touareg TDI is identical to the Porsche, the problem is that an Audi Q7 TDI is available for roughly the same price as a loaded Touareg. As for the Cayenne, it makes sense if you don’t want a BMW X5. Although, if you like the Cayenne and if the price is too high, you can get a Touareg TDI. Some will argue that the Q7 TDI is the better choice. Either way, the Touareg TDI, Q7 TDI, and Porsche diesel are putting out similar power. The Q7 has a 3rd row and seats 7. The Porsche is definitely rides and sounds the sportiest. The BMW X5 is probably the closest competition to the Cayenne. The Audi Q5 is much smaller than the Cayenne and the new Macan is actually based on the Q5. An SQ5 is the closest competition to a Porsche Macan S. However, none of these cars have anything to complain about besides the fact that a radical new Q7 will be here by January or March 2016.

  10. Why don’t you do more truck like used diesel trucks
