Fuel consumption/emissions* Cayenne: Urban in l/100 km 15,9 l/100 km-8,4 l/100 km; Extra urban in l/100 km 8,5 l-6,5 l/100 km; Combined in l/100 km 11,5 l/100 km-7,2 l/100 km; CO2 emissions in g/km 270 g-189 g.
We’ve just continued to improve it: the Cayenne is now lighter – up to 165 kg** depending on the specification – and also more dynamic, more comfortable, and closer to the road than ever before. Without detracting from the qualities required for off-road driving or towing heavy loads.
Its naturally aspirated 3.6-litre V6 engine features direct fuel injection (DFI), variable valve timing on both inlet and exhaust, and a variable resonance intake manifold – for a generous output and excellent fuel economy. In other words: we have enhanced the performance, while significantly lowering the weight, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The figures speak for themselves: maximum torque of 400 Nm, 220 kW (300 hp), a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph) and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 7.5 seconds. With both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions reduced by 20%.**
Delivering this power to the road efficiently, Porsche Traction Management (PTM) combines active all-wheel drive with an electronically variable multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). Together they enable the perfect distribution of drive torque to all four wheels, whether on long straights, through tight corners or on surfaces with different friction coefficients – for dynamic handling and increased traction. Drive is transmitted through a high-performance six-speed manual gearbox, which ensures optimum progression through the gears.
In addition to the standard 18-inch Cayenne wheels and larger brakes, the Cayenne can be fitted with the optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) – for even more outstanding brake performance.
Another key advantage: a total weight saving of approximately 50% compared with equivalent cast-iron discs.
The generous standard equipment includes partial-leather seats, climate control, the CDR audio system with touchscreen, cruise control and automatic headlight activation. For added comfort, there’s also a ‘Welcome Home’ lighting function. When you arrive at a destination after dark, the headlights remain illuminated for a user-defined period, lighting your path from the car.
So, a unique blend of the great sports performance and unrestricted everyday practicality that is typical of Porsche. Let’s be honest, would you have expected anything else?
