Sorry, did you say 627lb ft? In a Cayenne?
Yes, if ever there was a car the ‘stump-pulling’ cliché was invented for then you’re looking at it. The Cayenne Diesel S produces such a prodigious figure from just 2000rpm. The fact this hefty two-tonne SUV promises up to 35.3mpg as well is mind-boggling, such is the performance offered.
Linked to an eight-speed automatic gearbox with traditional torque-converter, the Cayenne Diesel S will grunt, for grunt is the word, from 0-62mph in just 5.3 seconds (5.4sec without the Sport Chrono pack). And the Cayenne will continue hurling its 2.2-tonne silhouette towards the horizon until it reaches 157mph, all the while emitting a deep-chested, eight-cylinder rumble more muscle car than miserly fuel-sipper.
Lag-free, the twin-turbo V8 is a fantastic engine, offering unrelenting acceleration that is only amplified and exaggerated by its sheer bulk and weight should your right foot require it.
While most Cayennes will furrow Chelsea roads or jostle for wing mirror width outside private schools, anyone enthusiastic enough to carve up corner apexes might just be blown away by its abilities.
Slow in and fast out, just like a 911, is the cornering stance the S Diesel requires; you’ll relish the grip from the front axle, worry for a nanosecond about turn-in bodyroll, then delight in the cheeky wag of the tail on power exit. Switch the electronic stability systems off and you’re in a gargantuan go-kart with real cornering swagger.
Even the sternest critics of Porsche must surely recognise what the Cayenne has done for the business. In 2013, it sold 84,000 of them – more than half the company’s total car production. It could be argued this mid-life tweakery is rather unnecessary, but 2014’s facelift has endowed the Cayenne with a better-looking style, more equipment, and performance and efficiency gains.
A statement that rings true for the S Diesel especially; nearly as quick as the Cayenne Turbo, far cheaper to run, equally refined, with a larger range and just as sharp to drive (but £32,289 cheaper), it’s this twin-turbo diesel V8 that’s the most captivating Cayenne sold in the UK.
The Cayenne S diesel backs up its Santa Pod-style acceleration with a combined economy figure of 35.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 209g/km.
Which, broadly speaking, means it is twice as economical as the first Cayenne Turbo, and less than half as bad for the planet into the bargain.
On the road the S diesel really is a remarkably competent car. It feels as fast as it is agile, as refined as it is rampant, if and when you find the space to bury your foot in the carpet and hold it there for a while.
It also rides far better than before in its Comfort setting thanks mainly to several software tweaks, Porsche says, and yet it feels sharper and more alert than ever in Sport.
Porsche claims that the Cayenne’s twin-turbo diesel V8 engine provides the normal advantages of a tradition diesel engine – unmatchable economy, in a nutshell – with the emotional appeal of a petrol engine.
We’d agree with that almost entirely in this extraordinary instance, but for one aspect – the fact that it won’t rev beyond 5000rpm. But then this is simply never going to happen with the diesel combustion process, what with a 16:4 compression ratio and common rail diesel injection.
In practical terms it means you have to short shift like mad when in manual mode under full throttle to avoid constantly engaging rev limiter. Everywhere else, though, it delivers the best of everything. It even sounds like a proper rumbly V8, for heaven’s sake.
Should I buy one?
At £61,474 the Cayenne S diesel represents a comparitively incredible amount of car for the money, seemingly.
Admittedly, however, its options list is long and could – if you got completely carried away – hike the price to not far short of six figures.
This aside, and whichever way you cut it, the Cayenne S diesel is a phenomenal machine. One that the good people at Landrover might well be somewhat flummoxed by when they realise how and why it can do, what it can do.
