If you blend a rather sleek, modern utility-vehicle silhouette in with the rough approximation of the 911's curves, you'll get the Cayenne—which is at odds with the more traditional SUV, but ever closer to the crossover styling norm with each new model year, it seems.

There's very little rugged about this design—even though it's deft off-pavement. It's also a far cry from the design of Porsche's legendary sports cars, like the legendary 911 and now-iconic Boxster, but it does have just enough of those models' style and panache. You'll notice that the hood is a bit longer than in some other crossover models; there's also in recent years been more of a styling synergy between Porsche's SUVs and sports cars, if only in the grille and front fascia. In back, there's only a gentle hat-tip to Porsche's sports cars, with gentle roof spoilers and an upright-yet-aerodynamic look that flows all the way to the back. 

The array of 2014 Porsche Cayenne models—each offering a somewhat different level of performance—can be positively bewildering. But keep in mind that all of them—even the base model and the Diesel—are strong and satisfying. Although it's worth running through all the levels before deciding which one is the best fit. 

The base Cayenne V-6 has more power and less weight compared to the last-generation Cayenne, and its 300-horsepower 3.6-liter (VR6) V-6 engine is sharp enough to execute quick passes—and relatively fuel-efficient—but do keep in mind that at 7.1 seconds to 60 mph it's not all that much quicker than any number of V-6 crossovers or minivans.

Above the base model is the Cayenne S, which performs considerably better and packs a 400-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 engine. Zero-to-60 mph times are shortened to 5.6 seconds, top speed is 160 mph, and the brawnier powertrain is a more appropriate fit for the look and feel of this performance SUV.Porsche can be as much a luxury brand as it is a sports-car brand, and the 2014 Cayenne is one of the models that best showcases the luxury side—all without abandoning the sports-car side, of course.

Supportive, comfortable sport seats are what you'll find in front throughout the entire model range; drivers of all sizes should be able to get well-positioned, with decent visibility and a beltline that isn't too high. Rear passengers are able to slide fore and aft, more than six inches if you're willing to give up some cargo space; and the rear seatback angle adjusts. 

Move up to higher model lines, and you'll also step up to higher-rent materials. In the GTS, for instance, you'll get special eight-way sport seats with Alcantara (suede-like) accents, while Turbo S models get.

If folding down the back seats and hauling larger pieces of cargo are part of your normal routine, you might want to double-check the space available in the Cayenne. The rear seatbacks don't fold completely flat, limiting the usefulness of the space, and actual cubes aside its a notch smaller than you might expect from a vehicle this size. Hybrids tend to give up some cargo space, typically, but that isn't the case here as Porsche has packaged the battery packl down below, where the spare tire would otherwise go.
