 Pros Low emissions makes it an environmentally friendly option.

 Pros Phenomenal acceleration; it is significantly faster than most would expect from a hybrid.

 Pros Strong towing capacity at 7,716 pounds.

 Pros All-wheel drive makes it ready for changes in driving conditions at any second.

 Pros Porsche Traction Management monitors the wheels and transmits torque appropriately if one starts to lose grip.

 Pros Self-leveling air suspension maintains ride height to ensure a smooth ride.

 Pros Cayenne S Hybrid handles a variety of terrain beautifully from muddy surfaces to boggy ground to snow\"covered steep ascents.

 Pros Revised steering system offers a more immediate response over previous years.

 Cons For a hybrid, fuel-economy is not a good as you would expect, returning 20 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. In fact, the Cayenne Diesel is better.

 Cons Although a good amount of cargo space is offered, it is not nearly as much as others in this class.

 Cons Dash is a little cluttered and overwhelming with too many controls.

 Cons For a vehicle of this size, the turning circle is larger than what most would think it is. Although it won’t be difficult to drive by any means, parking could be a chore.
