Both new E-Hybrid variants of the Cayenne benefit from the fundamental upgrades that the model series underwent in early 2023. A new front end has been combined with wings that are more strongly arched, and a new bonnet. This emphasises the car’s width. The headlights create a strikingly technical impression. In the rear, the SUV adopts the lower number plate position of the Coupé.
Inside, all the new Cayenne models have an emphatically driver-oriented control concept. Functions with a direct impact on driving are located directly on or immediately next to the steering wheel. The driver now operates the assistance systems via a driver assistance lever on the left side of the steering wheel. The automatic gear selector lever is to the right of the steering wheel on the dashboard.
The new Porsche Driver Experience creates a focused yet digitally enriched driving experience. For the first time, Porsche is offering a 10.9-inch display for the passenger side in the Cayenne. It offers access to performance data, the infotainment system and, depending on the market, the option of streaming videos while on the road. Technical safeguards ensure that this does not distract the driver.
Cayenne S E-Hybrid
The design of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid underscores its positioning. It features the 20-inch alloy wheels from the Cayenne S, with 20-inch AeroDesign wheels available as an option. The model also takes the two twin tailpipes of the exhaust system in brushed stainless steel on the left and right from the Cayenne S. The standard equipment also includes the Silver exterior package in the SUV and the Black exterior package in the Coupé, as well as pedal pads in stainless steel, the Sport Chrono package including a new mode switch for quick selection of driving modes and a central tachometer on a black dial in the digital 12.6-inch instrument cluster.
Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid
The Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid SUV and Coupé are clearly recognisable as the top models in the line. Both body variants feature a particularly sporty front-end reserved for Turbo models, with enlarged cooling air intakes and shiny black airblades. Other features of the turbo models include a rear trim panel painted in the exterior colour and wider wings in the exterior colour. This clearly distinguishes the Turbo E-Hybrid models from the other variants of the Cayenne.
The exhaust system used exclusively on the Turbo models, with two twin tailpipes in brushed stainless steel on the left and right of the rear section, further emphasises the model’s performance-focused character. The design of the one-piece, 21-inch alloy wheels in the Cayenne Turbo design in Dark Titanium (glossy) is also reserved for the Turbo models. As in all the E-Hybrid variants, there is a choice of Acid Green brake callipers instead of the standard red brake callipers. The standard equipment in the Turbo E-Hybrid models includes the new HD-Matrix LED headlights. Along with the Coupé, the Cayenne SUV also has active aerodynamics: the spoiler on the edge of the roof automatically extends at higher speeds to increase driving stability.
Inside, the most powerful Cayenne underscores its sportiness with aluminium inlays in the dashboard and the door panel trims. The roof lining is made entirely of the particularly sporty Race-Tex microfibre material. The standard equipment also includes a heated GT sports steering wheel, a mode switch for fast and direct selection of the desired driving mode, and 18-way adjustable leather sports seats with the model name embroidered in the headrests. As an alternative to the sports seat, 14-way adjustable leather comfort seats are available. The tachometer with the “Turbo” logo is positioned in the middle of the all-digital dashboard. The high-quality BOSE® Surround Sound system also comes as standard.
