Any Cayenne owner that's ever taken their SUV beyond the soccer field curb knows that the Cayenne is actually a fairly capable off-road performer. In fact, if you have the chance, we would highly recommend checking out the off-road course at Barber Motorsport Park, built specifically for the Porsche Sports Driving School, it's a great way to get familiar with the extraordinary capabilities of your luxury SUV.
Given what we know of the Cayenne's off-road capabilities, it's no wonder that "OFF ROAD" trade magazine awarded Porsche the award for the most popular luxury SUV. Gathering more than 20% of the vote, the Porsche Cayenne won out over models from eleven other manufacturers.
The readers of “OFF ROAD” trade magazine voted the Porsche Cayenne the “Off-road vehicle of the year” in the “Luxury SUV” category. The choice was between models from eleven manufacturers in this category alone. Porsche’s sporty SUV attracted more than 20 per cent of the votes, putting itself in the lead by a clear margin.
The award was presented at a prize ceremony in Munich
The sales manager for the Cayenne model line, Julian Baumann, accepted the award:
“This award illustrates yet again just how popular our sporty SUV is. The 100,000th Cayenne of the current generation was built only a few weeks ago in Leipzig.”, said Baumann.
The monthly trade magazine’s reader poll has been held since 1982. This year there were 143 vehicles from 40 manufacturers in twelve categories in the running and more than 57,000 readers took part in the poll.
