ITA with UncleJ. The V6 I drove did not inspire as much confidence as the non-turbo X3. However, both the Cayenne Hybrid and the S (and Turbo of course) are excellent performers.

My money would be on very few changes.

Strategically the model is selling well, there is no shortage of buyers and why fix it if it ain't broke.

Drove both and X3 is more nimble without a doubt, especially if you are comparing the base Cayenne to the 28i. However a fully loaded Cayenne Turbo, with Torque Vectoring, PASM, PDCC and other...
