Stuttgart. The readers of “OFF ROAD” trade magazine voted the Porsche Cayenne the “Off-road vehicle of the year” in the “Luxury SUV” category. The choice was between models from eleven manufacturers in this category alone. Porsche’s sporty SUV attracted more than 20 per cent of the votes, putting itself in the lead by a clear margin.
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG received the “OFF ROAD AWARD 2012” yesterday evening at a prize ceremony in Munich. This award illustrates yet again just how popular this sporty SUV is. The 100,000th Cayenne of the current generation was built only a few weeks ago in Leipzig. The monthly trade magazine’s reader poll has been held since 1982. This year there were 143 vehicles from 40 manufacturers in twelve categories in the running and more than 57,000 readers took part in the poll.
