The third-generation Cayenne S is mighty sleek, bringing its look closer in line with other new P-cars like the refreshed Macan and the 992-generation 911.

What I like the most is that it's not a try-hard: It's not riddled with complex lines or flashy protrusions.

Every four-door S model Porsche makes wields the same engine: a 2.9-liter, twin-turbocharged V6.

I'm a big fan of this engine, as there's plenty of available torque at lower rpms and it has no problem screaming its way to redline over and over.

The eight-speed automatic transmission is generally fault-free, working its way up through the gears with little drama in the cabin.

It is, however, a little janky when the vehicle slows to a stop, jumping a little bit on downshifts between third, second and first gears.
