Cayenne Turbo (late 958) test drive review
Cayenne Turbo, test drive
The other day, when I sent Panamera for the second year inspection,It was decided to lend the predecessor Cayenne as a substitute car.So my husband who brought Panamera to the Porsche Center,I drove to work in Cayenne and the next day I was able to wind and run around the city togetherSo I would like to review Cayenne Turbo, though it is easy.
By the way, what I borrowed this time is "Cayenne Turbo (late 958)"model. 4.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine. “Maximum output is 520ps, maximum torque is 750Nm”.
Cayenne's impression (from a female perspective)
I was the first to drive Cayenne almost a year ago.New Cayenne test ridewas. until now"Although it was made by Porsche, it is an SUV, so it is far from a sports carI was surprised when I got on.
I was amazed by the smoothness, handling, and lightness.Cayenne, yeah! I want this!(Laughs)
One year later, I got a very valuable opportunity to drive the predecessor Cayenne Turbo, but the first thing I felt when I got into the driver's seat was ``Good view from the driver's seat" If this is the case, even a small woman seems to be driving quite easily. At the same time, Panamera that I usually ride well understood "how it feels to crawl the earth"
When I started the engine,A quieter engine sound than Panamera TurboI received the impression. Although Panamera in my house says, “The engine sound became much louder as I drove compared to the time after delivery.”
And when I stepped on the pedal and checked the seat position,The accelerator pedal is slightly to the right than the cars we usually rideI felt. Even if you move your toes to the right, starting from the position where you normally put your heel, there is no accelerator pedal there.
To my husband, "Eh, is that so?"I wonder if it was just the difference in the size of the legs of men and women. However, the first person was confused, but got used to driving for 10 minutes.
I felt that I started driving again.Pedal and steering are light overall"I'm saying that. Panamera Turbo is heavier in steering and pedals.(Of course, the generations are different, so if you compare with 958 Cayenne, you should compare with 970 Panamera)I thought it would be easy for women to drive.
However, because it is a powerful car, as soon as you step on the accelerator a little harder,Boon! ! !"I was going to run with the engine sprayed, so at first I couldn't get that feeling well and was afraid of driving.
But when you get used to it,This is so easy to drive!”, And there was one who was driving in Norinori (laugh) Panamera Turbo's PDK, the reaction was directPashun, Pashun"Since the gear changes, this is also in battle mode.
On the other hand, the Cayenne that I drove this time is “Torcon AT”, so the reaction is not as direct as PDK, but it feels lighter. I felt that this feeling would be good for women and wives who have a lot of scenes to ride on the streets.
I also went to Arisu, but the handling is amazing. It bends. "SUV turns like this! ?"Surprisingly, it turned out, so I felt that it was a Porsche.
On the other hand, I was worried about "Ride comfort in the passenger seat" … No, it ’s not bad, I think it ’s a good one. The impact is not picked up one by one, and there is a feeling of grounding and is stable. HoweverThe comfort of the current Cayenne was too smooth and wonderfulSo, compared to that, I felt that there was quite a lot of usability.
So, I want to move on to my husband ’s review
