2016 Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition In a bid to enhance the Cayenne ;ine-up, Porsche has announced new Platinum Editions for Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S E-Hybrid. The special edition Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S E-Hybrid are easily recognizable at first glance by their distinctive sporty appearance.

Both Cayenne versions comes with large 20-inch wheels in RS Spyder on wider wheel arches, minor exterior changes and a bunch of interior trimmings, as well as advanced technologies.

The exterior mirrors and rear-view mirror are equipped with an automatic anti-glare feature as standard, while dark-tinted privacy glass (also standard) provides additional privacy for rear passengers. 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 Platinum edition’s exclusive appearance is rounded out by a high-gloss exterior package.

The exclusive interior is dominated by leather sport seats with electric eight-way adjustment, Alcantara center panels and the Porsche crest on all head rests. For anyone entering the vehicles, the special status of the Cayenne is plain to see with stainless steel door sills with “Platinum Edition” lettering, and illuminated door sills that light up the model name in the Cayenne S E-Hybrid Platinum Edition. As an additional high-end standard feature, the Platinum Editions come with the latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system that includes online navigation, the Connect Plus module and a BOSE Surround Sound system. The dashboard is adorned with a beautifully designed analogue clock, and the Cayenne S E-Hybrid also comes with a stationary heating/air conditioning system.

Cayenne Diesel’s three-liter V6 engine churns an output of 193 kW (262 hp) and consumes between 6.8 and 6.6 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers in the NEDC, depending on the tyres the vehicle is equipped with. The combined output of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid is 306 kW (416 hp). Here, the perfect interplay between the 3.0l V6 petrol engine and the electric motor results in total consumption of 3.4–3.3 l/100 km.

The Cayenne’s expanded features improve comfort and safety in particular. For example, 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 come also standard. 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.

The Porsche Cayenne Platinum Editions are ready for market roll-out in June. The specifications of the Cayenne Platinum Edition may vary in individual markets.
