Porsche has heavily revised the Cayenne SUV and Coupe with exterior design updates and a heavily revised interior. Short of a new-generation platform, the 2024 Cayenne is a comprehensive upgrade. The new Cayenne debuts with a highly digitalized display, new chassis technology and high-tech features.
The completely revised display, Porsche Driver Experience, first introduced in the Porsche Taycan, includes a fully digital 12.6-inch instrument cluster and a 12.3-inch central-mounted infotainment display. A third 10.9-inch display is now available for the first time for the front passenger. Native apps such as Spotify and Apple Music are provided as standard.
In Europe, the new Cayenne debuts with three different engine versions, a heavily revised V6 and V8. The three-litre V6 turbo engine now generates 260 kW (353 PS) and 500 Nm, which is 10 kW (13 PS) and 50 Nm more than before.
The top-of-the-range four-litre V8 biturbo engine outputs 349 KW (474 PS) and a torque of 600 Nm – 25 kW (34 PS) and 50 Nm more than its predecessor – it accelerates both the SUV and the SUV Coupé to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds. The top speed is 273 km/h.
The six-cylinder engine also forms the basis for the powertrain of the Cayenne E-Hybrid. In combination with a new electric motor that has been improved by 30 kW to 130 kW (176 PS), the combined output increases to 346 kW (470PS). Equipped with a high-voltage battery 25.9 kWh, Cayenne Hybrid has an estimated purely electric range of up to 90 kilometres.
The standard equipment of the Cayenne has been significantly expanded to include Matrix LED Headlights, Porsche, Active Suspension Management, 20-inch wheels, front and rear Park Assist including a reversing camera. The revised 2024 spec Porsche Cayenne will retail from € 89,097 (Coupé from € 93,143). The Cayenne E-Hybrid starts at € 103.377 (Coupé from € 106,352).
The new Porsche Cayenne SUV and Coupe models are available to order now, with deliveries in Europe starting in July 2023.
