Porsche Cayenne

BASE PRICE RANGE: $47,675-$105,775
BODY TYPE: Midsize/Luxury SUV

WHAT'S NEW: Pretty much everything: The 2011 Cayenne is lower in height, about 400 lb lighter, structurally stiffer, more fuel-efficient, boasts a revamped cabin (looking very much like the Panamera's), and sports a new, optional 8A. Green-friendly features include Automatic Start Stop (shuts off the engine when the vehicle stops) and the new S Hybrid model.

COOL FACT: The 500-hp Cayenne Turbo rockets from 0-60 MPH in just 4.4 seconds.

SUM UP: Make demands. It'll answer them.
RATING: *****
