The E70 is a fantastic SUV as far as driving dynamics go. I would not have hesitated buying one even in it's last model year if it wasn't for the nagging fuel delivery issues with the FI engines. We need a reliable SUV so this time the contract went to Porsche. The steering on the Cayenne has nice feel as long as you omit the variable assist Servotronic that IMO ruins the feel by over boosting it at city speeds.

Exhaust is sportier and most importantly the suspension is incredibly firm, a bit to firm but one should expect this if you get a Msport, unless its an f10
You would think a sedan would be treated with the sportier version but not in this case
Rumors has it that one of the main goals with the F10 LCI is to "re-engineer" the steering for more feel. It will be interesting to see the result and what that will entitle. Whatever the result it's good to hear that it could be a priority.
