Porsche Malaysia (Sime Darby Auto Performance) today announced the availability of the new, third-generation Porsche Cayenne. As the Brand’s best-selling model the world over, the Cayenne in its third generation guise takes on a completely new development and combines even more of the typical Porsche performance with excellent everyday practicality.
The new Cayenne does not only continue its exemplary balance of performance and practicality, but expands on it and now offers a wider range of standard equipment. The new Cayenne is now up to 65 kilograms lighter thanks to its intelligent lightweight construction. Its powerful turbo engines, new eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox, new chassis systems and innovative Porsche Advanced Cockpit display and control concept with total connectivity takes both sportiness and comfort to the next level. Despite its steadfast focus on performance and comfort, the new Cayenne remains perfectly suited to off-road use.
The third-generation Porsche Cayenne: More Porsche than ever
The new Cayenne is said to promise to be more Porsche and more Cayenne than ever. The primary objective was to further highlight the character of the premium SUV. The new Cayenne is now more precise, elegant, athletic and expressive, along with near complete digitalization and the most networked digital connectivity ever to be input in a Porsche model, including cutting-edge driver assistance systems.
The new Cayenne is available in two variants: The Cayenne’s 250 kW (340 hp), three-liter turbo engine delivers 29 kW (40 hp) more than the previous model. The 2.9-liter V6 biturbo engine in the Cayenne S, which reaches speeds of up to 265 km/h, brings it up to 324 kW (440 hp) – an increase of 15 kW (20 hp). Equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new Cayenne S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in less than five seconds.
Based on the iconic 911 sports car, the premium SUV, for the first time, features mixed tyres and rear-axle steering. In addition, its on-road capabilities are further improved by active all-wheel drive as standard, Porsche 4D Chassis Control, three-chamber air suspension, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) electronic roll stabilization system, and the newly developed high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB).
