Porsche Cayenne Overview

Porsche revealed the new-generation Cayenne at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The SUV enters into its third generation and comes with new looks, updated features and revised engine options.  The new Cayenne is already on sale in Germany. The Stuttgart-based carmaker will debut the new-gen Cayenne in India shortly given the overwhelming sales record the SUV garnered in India. It will continue to rival against the likes of the BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz GLE, Audi Q7 and the newly launched Range Rover Velar

The new gen Cayenne seems to have adopted the design language set down by its younger sibling, the Macan. The headlamps are new and get Porsche’s new four-point LED signature. The front bumper consists of horizontal slats with bigger air-intake vents. The silhouette is noticeably sharper with a raked D-pillar to lend the SUV a sportier stance. The length measures at 4,918mm which is 63mm longer than the outgoing model. The width has increased by 44mm now measuring 1,983mm. However, the height has been reduced by 9mm to lend a sportier appearance. The wheelbase remains the same at 2,895mm. At the rear, the bulbous tail lights are replaced by new sleek LED taillight design which runs across the rear. Overall, the new Cayenne looks sleeker, sportier, better proportioned and more handsome as compared to the outgoing car. The new gen Cayenne is based on the new MLB Evo platform of the Volkswagen Group. Thus, the SUV sheds 65kg of weight over the previous model tipping the scale at 1985kg.

On the inside, the cabin is fresh with a lot of influence from the Panamera. The offroader also gets the new Porsche Advanced Cockpit integrated with the revised dashboard. The centre console is dominated by a large 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen borrowed from the Panamera as well. The instrument cluster is an analogue tachometer flanked by a seven-inch digital screen on either side. The cabin comes loaded with all the connected features Porsche has on offer. There is a plethora of driving aids as well while the boot space has increased to 770 litres.

Under the hood, there are two turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engines on offer at the moment. The standard Cayenne is powered by the 340bhp/450Nm variant. Meanwhile, the Cayenne S has a 2.9-litre turbocharged V6 under the hood. It generates 440bhp and 550Nm which is 20bhp more than its predecessor. Transmission is an eight-speed Tiptronic S with shorter response times and sportier ratios in the lower gears. There are no diesel or plug-in hybrid variants yet but will join the line-up soon, along with the range-topping performance variants.
