The Cayenne models that are equipped with eight-speed Tiptronic S also feature an auto start/stop function. If, for example, you stop at traffic lights and keep your foot on the brake pedal, the auto start/stop function will automatically cut the engine. Although the engine is not running, all audio and communication systems remain switched on and the standard climate control continues to maintain the selected temperature. The only changes you’ll perceive: peace and quiet and – thanks to greater fuel economy – also peace of mind.
The system is deactivated in certain situations, e.g. if the outside temperature is very high or the battery charge is low. The starter motor has been revised to cope with the additional demands of the system, and the battery charge and life are continuously monitored. The battery and starter motor are replacement parts that are subject to greater wear and tear with frequent use of the auto start/stop function.
Standard on the Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid, Cayenne GTS and Cayenne Turbo. Available as an option for the Cayenne in conjunction with the optional Tiptronic S.
