Third-best 2013 luxury SUV: Porsche Cayenne
Base price: $48,850
Expect to leave all of the other soccer moms and dads in the dust if you drive a Porsche Cayenne, as the high-performance SUV offers as much as 500 horsepower.
"I call the Cayenne 'The Porsche of SUVs' because it's got plenty of engine power," Homan says. "If you need to win an SUV (cross-country race), this might be the vehicle to do it in."The base Cayenne has a beefy 300-horsepower V-6 engine, but 400- and 500-horsepower V-8 versions are available -- as are diesel and hybrid editions. Yet the Cayenne still manages to start at less than $50,000, which Homan calls "cheap for a Porsche."
