Porsche Malaysia (SIme Darby Auto Performance) has announced the Cayenne Platinum Edition, the newest Premium SUV by Porsche. The new Porsche Cayenne Platinum edition is defined by a intensified exterior and recognizable sporty sleekness. This model is only valid for a limited time period.

TO kick things off on the exterior of the Cayenne Platinum edition, the large, RS Spyder-designed 20-inch wheels are housed in wider wheel arches to provide a more track-bred stance. And that’s not all, a non-metallic black and white finish is standard, with Deep Black, Purpurite, Mahogany, Carrera White or Rhodium Silver metallic paints available as an option. The broadened wheel arches also come in the chosen color scheme. The Cayenne Platinum edition’s exclusive appearance is rounded out by a high-gloss exterior package.

Most of the goodies for the Cayenne Platinum edition are reserved for the interior; for example, the leather sport seats with electric eight-way adjustment, Alcantara center panels and the Porsche crest on the head rests.

The Cayenne Platinum edition’s expanded standard features improve comfort and safety in particular. Standard equipment in the Cayenne Platinum Edition includes Bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Power Steering Plus and ParkAssist in the front and back. The latter system not only uses an audible beep to indicate the distance to objects or other cars in front of and behind the vehicle; it also graphically depicts the direct surroundings on the central display.

For anyone entering the vehicles, the special status of the Cayenne is plain to see with stainless steel door sills with “Platinum Edition” lettering. As an additional high-end standard feature, the Platinum Edition models come with the latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system that includes online navigation, and the Connect Plus module. The dashboard is adorned with a beautifully designed analogue clock.

In the powertrain department, the Cayenne Platinum edition takes up a 3.6-liter V6 engine, that churns 220-kW (300-hp), yet remain frugal at 9.2 liters per 100 km, depending on the tyres fitted.

Retail base price for the Cayenne Platinum Edition starts from RM 698,000.00, and covers a four-year warranty and free maintenance package. The stated price includes all applicable duties, except registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
