More comfort, more safety and better handling – the new Cayenne passes all these tests with flying colours. International journalists are currently experiencing in and around Barcelona how Porsche engineers have equipped the SUV with enormous off-road capabilities. Car experts from specialist magazines, daily newspapers, TV channels and internet portals have the opportunity of testing the new Cayenne extensively in the region around the Spanish metropolis.

At their disposal they have both asphalt roads and dirt tracks on the nearby off-road terrain of Les Comes. There they can sit behind the wheel themselves – with a Porsche instructor as co-pilot – and drive cross-country for 40 minutes.

The test drives definitely show that Porsche engineers have managed to expand the range of running gear settings from Normal to Sport Plus on the new models. The SUV is also capable of coasting and is now equipped with an advanced auto stop/start function to reduce fuel consumption. In the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) the new Cayennne requires only 9.5 to 9.8 litres per 100 kilometres depending on the set of tyres fitted.

Here is what the media say:

"The Cayenne is still fun on challenging roads." Telegraph online

"Whether that many horses are needed in any sport-ute is a discussion for another day, but acceleration for the two-plus ton Porsche will embarrass any number of sports cars — zero to 100 km/h comes up in just 4.5 seconds." Driving.ca

"That largely rear-drive set-up gives an inherent balance to the car when driving quickly that is incredible for a car this large, heavy, and comfortable." autoexpress.uk

"Never before has quite so much ability been available under just one roof, so if you can afford this sort of outlay and want the very best, then yes, buy one you should." autocar.uk
