Dynamic performance, five doors, variability, and comfort. The Cayenne continues on its path of success. Features include a new design, new driver assistance systems, new drive components, higher output, and comparatively low fuel consumption. Having reinvented itself, the Cayenne continues to forge ahead. Straight into the future.
Performance. The Cayenne Diesel features auto start stop, active air flaps, and thermal management. With acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds the Cayenne Diesel reaches a top speed of 135 mph. Additional performance features include diesel direct fuel injection (common-rail injection system), exhaust-gas turbocharger with Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG), and a maximum torque of 406 lb. –ft between 1,750 – 2,500 rpm.
8-speed Tiptronic S. Thanks to a particularly wide ratio spread, the 8-speed Tiptronic S lowers fuel consumption and increases comfort and dynamic agility. The low engine speeds in the higher gears reduce the noise level inside the vehicle. The 8-speed Tiptronic S shifts gear automatically and adapts to your individual driving style. New features include the extended auto start/stop function. This cuts the engine not only when the vehicle stops, but also if you are approaching traffic lights, for example.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM).PTM comprises of an active all-wheel drive system with an electronically variable, map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). The electronically-controlled multi-plate clutch helps ensure optimum distribution of force between the permanently driven rear axle and the front axle. The driving conditions are continuously monitored to enable the system to respond to a variety of situations. During cornering, the required level of engine torque is distributed to the front wheels to provide excellent lateral stability. The result is perfect distribution of drive torque at all times.
Exterior Design. The prowess of the new Cayenne is clearly reflected in the design: the front and rear sections have been completely revised. They are now sharper and even more sophisticated. The new hood, new front fenders, new main headlights, and modified air intakes lend the car even greater presence. It is more athletic and muscular than ever before. The precisely contoured sides make it clear that this is a sports car with character and stature. The new exterior mirrors with integrated indicators and wheels in a range of sizes up to 21 inches – with new attractive styling – serve to emphasize the car’s dynamics. An impression that is confirmed by a number of other new details includes the standard daytime running lights featuring four integral LED daytime running lights, as well as the new LED taillights and integrated tailpipes.
Porsche Stability Management (PSM).PSM helps to stabilize the vehicle in hazardous road scenarios. The electronic control system uses sensors to continuously monitor the direction, speed, yaw velocity, and lateral acceleration of the car. It also enhances traction when accelerating on inconsistent road surfaces. In SPORT PLUS mode, as featured in the Sport Chrono Package, PSM is initiated later – affording a greater sense of freedom to the more dynamic driver.
Multi-function Sports Steering Wheel with Paddles. Motorsport at your fingertips. The paddles enable fast, sporty, and ergonomic gear changes. There are also additional multi-function controls for telephone, radio, and on-board computer functions. Derived from the 918 Spyder super sports car, the steering wheel also comes with optional heating. In addition to sporting appeal, it also offers a high level of comfort.
