Mumbai. Porsche India welcomes the arrival of the all-new Cayenne, boasting enhanced performance,
a sharpened design and more exciting features as standard. The new Cayenne extends the model’s
evolving, twelve-year success story as it continues to underline its position as a true sports car amongst
The new generation Cayenne is available in four versions in the country: Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S
Diesel, Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo.
Since its inception the Cayenne has come to realise and define an ambitious dream, a luxury SUV with
sports car credentials. With typical Porsche DNA the new Cayenne delivers a pioneering benchmark
whether being driven through the city, in challenging off-road conditions or in the ultimate test, on the
race track. With the new Cayenne, Porsche continues its ethos of delivering increased power without
compromising efficiency. When matched with more precise handling capabilities, the new Cayenne
represents a SUV beyond compare.
Anil Reddi, Director, Porsche India, says: “The new Porsche Cayenne embodies the ultimate Porsche
traits, class-leading performance and outstanding driveability. No matter the road conditions, the new
Cayenne delivers a unique automotive experience and we expect our customers to share in the
excitement around this thrilling evolution.”
In its latest version, Porsche designers have given the Cayenne an even sharper design with precise
lines and purposefully placed light refracting edges. Front body, front wings, bonnet and air blades are
also newly shaped.
At first glance, the new Cayenne is a Porsche through and through with its bi-xenon headlights and four-point
LED daytime running lights. The new layout of the model’s rear lights creates a three-dimensional
effect with the brake lights designed in four elements. The license plate, boot handle and lights are now
integrated more elegantly into the boot lid. In addition to other modifications, the newly developed
exhaust tailpipes are now incorporated in the lower rear section, while an automatically activating boot
lid is fitted as standard.
In the interior, much of the layout has been shaped around the driver, with a new multifunction sport
steering wheel – which can also be found in the 918 Spyder – featuring shift paddles as standard. The
rear seating system is even more comfortable, with optional seat ventilation now available for the first
time. The new Cayenne also boasts of standard features like air suspension with Porsche Active
Suspension Management, Porsche Entry and Drive, four-zone auto climate control and panorama
sunroof. Customers can additionally specify their new Cayenne with options like soft-close doors,
surround camera as well as the Sport Chrono package which now incorporates Performance Start
Power and torque have been boosted while improving fuel economy in line with Porsche’s commitment
to maximum output from minimum input. All new Cayenne models consume significantly less fuel, with
the help of new features including a coasting function, a further advanced auto stop-start function plus
(except Diesel) and optimised thermal management, with active cooling air flaps now being used for the
first time in the Cayenne. Located behind the middle air inlet, they are opened or closed according to the
specific driving situation and cooling needs.
The diesel versions of the new Cayenne combine sportiness with fuel efficiency. The three-litre V6
engine in the Cayenne Diesel produces 245 hp from 3,800 to 4,400 rpm and has a fuel consumption of
7.7 l/100 km. In interplay with its torque of 550 Newton metres from 1,750 to 2,750 rpm, the car can
accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds (7.5 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package),
and has a top speed of 218 km/h. The 4.2-litre V8 engine of the Cayenne S Diesel produces 385 hp at
3,750 rpm and a torque of 850 Newton metres from 2,000 to 2,750 rpm. From a standstill, it reaches
100 km/h in only 5.4 seconds (5.3 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). Its top speed is
252 km/h with fuel consumption of 8.0 l/100 km.
The all-new 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine of the Cayenne S which has been fully developed by Porsche
returns fuel consumption between 9.5 and 9.8 l/100 km. This represents one litre less than with the
previous V8 engine. The bi-turbo V6 develops a maximum power of 420 hp at 6,000 rpm – a gain of 20
hp. The car's torque of 550 Newton metres (+50 Newton metres) is available from 1,350 to 4,500 rpm.
The power density per litre of displacement is now 117 hp, a gain of almost 40 percent. With its
standard eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission, the Cayenne S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just
5.5 seconds (5.4 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package) – 0.4 seconds faster than the
previous Cayenne S. The vehicle's top speed is 259 km/h.
Leading the model field is the compelling Cayenne Turbo, powered by a 4.8-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that
produces 520 hp at 6,000 rpm and 750 Newton metres of torque from 2,250 to 4,000 rpm. This lets the
Cayenne Turbo accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in a mere 4.5 seconds (4.4 seconds with the optional
Sport Chrono package). Its top speed is 279 km/h. The fuel consumption figures of all versions are as
per the European Driving Cycle.
