Oct 31, 2014  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team

From the outside, it doesn't look all that different from other SUVs, but Porsche has packed enough inside to get it to stand apart. Starting at $74k (and rising up to at least $114k), the tiptronic S E-Hybrid boasts 420hp at 6,000rpm, with a  3.6-liter twin-turbo V6  that hits a 0-60 advancement in 5.2 seconds (5.1 when in Sport Chrono) and a top track speed of 161mph.
