The Porsche flagship SUV gets new interior and better off-road performances.
Let’s see whats new with this upgrade.
Front and rear headlights– At the front is possible to have, as an optional, the brand new HD-Matrix LED Headlights, replacing the original LED Matrix headlights. This hi-tech headlights are formed by 64.000 camera controlled pixels, with the lights adapting to every driving and weather condition. At the rear there is the classic LED bar that virtually unites the two parts of the car.
Engines – For the new Cayenne and Cayenne E-Hybrid we have a V6 engine 3.0 liter 348 hp and a drag torque of 369 lb-ft. The Cayenne S, instead, has a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 capable of generating a maximum power output of 468 hp and a drag torque of 442 lb-ft.
E-Performance – The Cayenne E-Hybrid, in addition to the V6 engine, has a new electric motor that generates an output power of 174 hp. The result is a superior driving performance in e-mode and a greater support for the combustion engine. All of this is obtained by the new traction battery with a capacity of 25.9 kW/h
Chassis and brakes – The Cayenne features the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which increase the comfort and the safety while driving. As an optional is possible to have the adaptive air suspension that makes better the driving experience. Here we have also the new version of the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus). This system reduces the number of agile braking and improves performance and agility while driving in sharp turns. For this reasons all Cayenne models are equipped with a six-piston brake system at the front and four-piston brake system at the rear.
Interior – The new interior features a brand new digital instrument cluster. It is a 12.65-inch curved display that is concisely in the field of vision of the driver. At the center there is the Porsche Driver Experience display, that gives the access to the navigator and infotainment. Under the display, on the console, there are the clima controls. There is also an optional 10.9-inch touchscreen display for the passenger. This is very particular because of the optional In-car Video that makes the display visible only for the passenger without distraction for the driver.
Models and price – There are 3 different models: Cayenne, Cayenne E-Hybrid and Cayenne S, each one with the coupè version. The starting range price for the Cayenne is from $79,200 to $95,700* of the Cayenne S. For the Cayenne Coupè the starting range price is from $84.300* to $102.100*.
