As on every Porsche, the interior of the Cayenne is designed around the driver, combining sporting style with the very highest standards of ergonomics, comfort and quality.
Particularly striking features include the way the centre console rises to meet the dashboard – clearly inspired by the Carrera GT. This immediately enhances the interior structure, a continuation of the car’s dynamic exterior lines. The seat position and sports steering wheel offer exceptional support and contact – for an even sportier ride.
A typical Porsche feature: the five round instruments form the familiar cluster and are slightly raised from the dashboard as a visual unit. The high-resolution 4.8-inch TFT colour screen displays information from the on-board computer or, in conjunction with PCM including navigation module, map data from the navigation system. It also shows the settings of the optional adaptive cruise control or gives various warnings, such as alerts from Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM), which is also available as an option. On the Cayenne S Hybrid, the display also provides information about the energy management.
Oil pressure, oil and coolant temperature as well as the fuel level are displayed using analogue gauges, while the boost pressure gauge on the Cayenne Turbo is digital. A compass display in the instrument cluster is available as an option in conjunction with PCM. This shows the four cardinal and four ordinal directions with degree increments as well as your current altitude.
The steering column offers manual height and reach adjustment (electrically adjustable on the Cayenne Turbo). The steering wheel rim is in smooth-finish leather.
As is the optional SportDesign steering wheel with gearshift paddles (standard on the Cayenne GTS) – for genuine racestyle gearshift action. Also available as an option, the multifunction steering wheel enables easy access to a range of functions including audio and telephone.
The car is ergonomically designed around the vehicle occupants for optimum comfort. Frequently used controls are grouped logically together on the centre console to enable you to select individual functions quickly and easily.
Other practical features include door storage compartments with bottle holders front and rear.
The rear seats provide manual fore/aft adjustment as well as backrest adjustment and a 40/20/40 split-folding facility, thereby increasing the storage capacity from 580 to 1,780 litres (depending on the model).
All Cayenne models are fitted with electric windows, front and rear, with door-lock open/close facility as well as climate control and remote central locking.
The interior features a selection of quality materials available in a variety of combinations, all of which reflect true Porsche heritage. The palette of colours and finishes ranges from elegant to sporty, and includes a selection of fine woods, aluminium and carbon – for a race-inspired look.
If purist is your style, the Cayenne GTS offers extraordinary scope for interior personalisation: in conjunction with the leather interior in Black, the optional Leather interior in Platinum Grey with anthracite birch interior package (wood) GTS interior package in Carmine Red ‘GTS’ logo in Carmine Red on head restraint GTS interior packages* give you the opportunity to add stunning highlights – either in Carmine Red or Peridot. They consist of elements such as the embroidered ‘GTS’ logo on the head restraints on the front and outer rear seats, front and rear seat belts and decorative seams on the dashboard, upper door panels and armrests in contrasting colour. The athleticism of the Cayenne GTS is further underlined by an Alcantara finish. Used extensively in motor racing, it offers particularly good grip.
These are just a few of the options available to help you design the Cayenne interior to suit your individual taste.
