The 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe attracts a lot of attention at school drop-off, especially in this ‘Montego Blue Metallic' colour! What I love about the Porsche Cayenne Coupe is, yes it looks amazing, but it feels fantastic to drive, too and it's pretty practical as a family car!

When it comes to installing child seats, there are ISOFix points in the two outer rear seats; they are within plastic guides and are nice and easy to connect to.

There are top tether anchorages on the back of all three rear seatbacks. They are within labelled plastic guides and easy to connect through the boot.

Three Infasecure child seats fit really easily across the rear seats of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe. I installed the Infaecure Attain More and Momentum More forward-facing and the Adapt More infant capsule rear-facing.

The Cayenne Coupe is a fantastic car for tall families. The legroom is very good and we could easily fit a 186cm driver in front of a rear-facing Infasecure Adapt More Infant Capsule.

Rear passengers are comfortably looked after with cup holders in the central seat fold-down armrest. A child's drink cup or reusable or disposable coffee cups fit in them.

Net map pockets on the back of both front seats will hold an iPad or book but not conceal them and there is a phone storage tray in the back of the central console box and 12V and USB-C sockets for charging.

The rear door bins will hold a refillable water bottle.

In the front, the door bins are bigger and will hold an iPad and refillable water bottle.

The central console is quite minimal in the front, with just two cup holders and a small storage well in front of them where small items like keys can fit.

Behind them is a shallow central console box.

In the front of the central console is a phone charging tray underneath a retractable lid.

The glove box will hold an iPad and purse, and it's fully lined, so anything stored in there won't rattle around.

The cabin of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is nice and light with the cream leather upholstery and dash fitted to this test car. Of course with a Porsche the sky is the limit with colour customisation, if you're willing to pay the extra!

Around in the boot, the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is very practical for families. With a big opening, it is easy to load prams into.

The boot of the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe will hold fifteen shopping bags, which is one less than I fitted in the non-coupe version of the previous model Cayenne. This coupe version holds the same amount of bags as the Audi Q8 and VW Touareg. The BMW X5 will hold sixteen bags of shopping in the boot, the Range Rover Velar will hold fourteen and the Jaguar F-Pace thirteen bags of shopping.

If you have a family dog or fur baby, then you can transport it in the boot of the Cayenne Coupe comfortably.

There are aircon vents in the back of the central console box in the 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe…

… and in the rear side pillars. Which are perfect for keeping little rear passengers at the right temperature while driving along.

The media system in the Cayenne Coupe is lovely, modern and easy to use.

It has some great features within it like the weather forecast.

You can control the climate through the media screen for the front and rear separately…

… as well as being able to see the air quality and clean it if you need to.

You can control the car's settings through the media screen, including the lighting.

One of the best features of the car is you are able to control the movement of the front passenger seat through the screen…

… using the driver seat controls.

The 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to easily access your phone's navigation, listening and communication apps while driving.

In reverse the camera images are lovely and crisp and clear.

You can change the camera view easily by pressing on the screen.

The Cayenne Coupe has a 360-degree camera…

I also like being able to squirt the rear camera to make sure it's clean enough to see out of it, by pressing on the icon on the screen.

The 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a fun and punchy car to drive. It has a smooth ride, and you are cocooned from any wind and road noise (but when you put your foot down, the exhaust lets you know it's there!) The turning circle is good in the Cayenne Coupe, making parking in tight school and supermarket car parks nice and easy.

When you have three Infasecure child seats installed in the back, the visibility is still good and you can see over the top of them and out the back windscreen.

There is a passenger seatbelt removal visual in the driver's display screen and it tells you the distance to empty clearly too so you can plan to refill your fuel when you don't have the kids in the car!

There is a button in the ceiling in the front that allows you to turn on and off the rear light easily.

The 2023 Porsche Cayenne Coupe makes a fantastic family car and BabyDrive. It comes with ten airbags but has not been ANCAP crash-tested.

Dual front, dual front knee, front side, rear side, and curtain airbags are standard.
