Boasting enhanced performance, a sharpened design and more exciting features as standard, the new Cayenne extends the model’s twelve-year success story as it continues to underline its position as a true sports car amongst SUVs.
The all-new generation Cayenne has been launched in seven versions: Cayenne V6, Cayenne S, Cayenne GTS, Cayenne Turbo, Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S Diesel and for the first time, the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, the first plug-in hybrid in the premium SUV segment.
Adding another chapter to Porsche’s unrivalled legacy of breaking new automotive ground, this model, together with the Panamera S E-Hybrid and the 918 Spyder, makes Porsche the world's only carmaker to offer three plug-in hybrid models.
Since its inception the Cayenne has come to realise and define an ambitious dream; a luxury SUV with sports car credentials. With typical Porsche DNA the new Cayenne delivers a pioneering benchmark whether being driven through the city, in challenging off-road conditions or in the ultimate test; on the race track.
All seven new Cayenne models feature redeveloped engines which deliver higher torque than their predecessors, coupled with lower fuel consumption, as Porsche continues its ethos of delivering increased power without compromising efficiency. When matched with more precise handling capabilities, the new Cayenne represents a sports SUV beyond compare.
At first glance, the new Cayenne is a Porsche through and through with its bi-xenon headlights and four-point LED daytime running lights. The new layout of the model’s rear lights creates a three-dimensional effect with the brake lights designed in four elements.
The license plate, boot handle and lights are now integrated more elegantly into the boot lid. In addition to other modifications, the newly developed exhaust tailpipes are now incorporated in the lower rear section, while an automatically activating boot lid is fitted as standard.
In the interior, much of the layout has been shaped around the driver, with a new multifunction sport steering wheel – which can also be found in the 918 Spyder – featuring shift paddles as standard. The rear seating system is even more comfortable, with optional seat ventilation now available for the first time.
Leading the model field is the compelling Cayenne Turbo, powered by a 4.8-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that produces 520 hp at 6,000 rpm and 750 Newton metres of torque from 2,250 to 4,000 rpm. This lets the Cayenne Turbo accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds (4.4 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). Its top speed is 279 km/h. NEDC fuel consumption is 11.5 l/100 km.
The new Cayenne models are now available at Porsche Centre Dubai, delivering high-end dynamic performance with the typical Porsche spread of efficiency, undiminished ride comfort and exclusive features fitted as standard.
