DESIGN

The Cayenne is now in its third generation and now features a deep front airdam with triple air intakes beneath a sculpted bonnet line. Headlights reveal the four LED running lights, a Porsche family signature, and the front view has echoes of the 911 sports car. The side is strongly contoured and draw the eye to the rising waistline and coupe-like tailgate. The effect is both athletic and muscular, while inside, there’s ample room for five with a 40/20/40 split folding rear seat to make the most of the versatile loadspace.

PERFORMANCE

The Porsche Cayenne comes with a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6, packing 340hp, it’s capable of sprinting the two-tonne SUV from 0-62 in 6.2 secs, reaching a top speed of 152 mph. All models are able to pull a max trailer load of 3,500kg, which is enough for pretty much any leisure boat or caravan. Mixed wheel widths inspired by the Porsche 911 improve handling and 4D Chassis Control suspension with rear axle steering improves manoeuvrability at slower speeds. Porsche offers five driving modes, four of which are for off-road use; mud, gravel, sand and rocks. The Porsche Traction Management and fully-active all-wheel drive system ensures the new Cayenne can comfortably handle itself off the tarmac.​​

TECHNOLOGY

The Cayenne is packed with Porsche-specific technology. The exceptional new digital network brings the whole world into the cockpit. The centre console takes features from the Porsche Panamera: haptic switches and general smartphone-like sophistication delivers a new-age user experience. Accompanied by cutting-edge driver assistance systems, the 12.3” HD touchscreen display contains the all-new PCM infotainment system. Quality and versatility are clearly present throughout the new top-of-the-range model, delivering an immersive and satisfying driving experience.

SAFETY

Driver assistance features include the optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses a radar sensor in the front apron to monitor the road up to 200 metres ahead. Lane Departure Warning and Lane Change Assist help keep you and your passengers safe on crowded motorways, while at journey’s end Park Assist uses an acoustic signal and front/rear displays to alert the driver of any obstacles at the front or rear of the car.
