If you like to stand out from the crowd, and have a keen eye for value, the Cayenne Platinum Editions reward a closer examination. These final generation two Cayennes come with a long list of standard equipment and feature unique styling details. Models available include the Cayenne Diesel, Diesel S and E-Hybrid Plug-in Electric Vehicle, but stocks are limited.
Safety features include full-size airbags for driver and
front seat passenger, side airbags at the front integrated into the seat and
curtain airbags across the entire roof frame and side glazing from the A-pillar
to the C-pillar. Pre-tensioning seat belts are fitted to the front and two
outer rear seats.
Standout features of the Platinum Editions include gloss black or white exterior finish as standard (metallic finishes are optional), with distinctive alloy wheels, body-colour wheel arch extensions and privacy glass. Inside, the Platinum editions have front sports seats with Alcantara™ inserts, black gloss trim and unique Platinum Edition door sill guards.
The Platinum Editions are unchanged from the performance specification of the models they are based on. Porsche Traction Management, Porsche Stability Management and 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission are all standard.
All Platinum Edition models feature dynamic Xenon headlights, front and rear Park Assist, heated electric leather and Alcantara sports seats with Porsche crests, the Connect Plus sat-nav and infotainment module and a Bose surround sound system.
Although the generation three Cayenne has been launched, it will be some time before the full range is in production. Until then you can bag yourself a high-specification Cayenne Diesel, Diesel S or E-Hybrid for a highly tempting price, and stand out from the crowd thanks to a distinctive special edition design package into the bargain.
