The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is driven by technology which is evident by the number of features the engineers have integrated in the car.
The Cayenne SUV which was originally launched in 2003 has been going extremely strong for more than a decade, thanks to the continued support from the brand.
The latest generation of the Porsche car is all ready to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show before which some of the technical specifications and new features found in the car has been detailed. Compared to the outgoing model, the new car’s length and ride height has been altered so as to make it more comfortable and safe to drive. The horizontal lines found in the front end of the model provides it a wider stance, yet the designers have managed to make it look sleek, not bulky!
The total boot capacity of the 2018 Porsche Cayenne has been increased by 100 liters. On the inside, the dashboard is as stylish as any interior could get and it resembles a lot of design aesthetics from the Panamera’s dashboard. The center console is quite large as it has always been featuring a 12.3-inch touchscreen to control the infotainment system. Majority of the functions and features in the car can be controlled using the single display.
As with the ongoing trend, the new Cayenne is also mounted on the MLB architecture. The same platform is used for the Audi Q7 and the Bentley Bentayga giving enough space to mount the 48V electrics. Under the bonnet, the car is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine capable of producing about 335 horsepower combined with 450Nm of torque. The super fast SUV can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 6.2 seconds with a top speed pegged at 152mph.
For buyers who would prefer a more powerful and potent model, Porsche offers the Cayenne S equipped with a 2.9-liter twin turbo V6 engine. The powertrain seamlessly produces about 434 horsepower combined with 550Nm of torque. The car can go from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.2 seconds with an improved top speed of 165mph.
The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is already available for purchase at the nearest Porsche branded stores. The model is priced at £55,965 while the more powerful S variant will set you back by £68,330. Compared to the outgoing model, the price increase isn’t too high which should enable most buyers to upgrade their current model.
