Even if the Porsche Cayenne was not well-received back in 2003 when it first entered production, it has become the German carmaker`s premium SUV along the years, demonstrating exquisite driving capabilities and impressive performance figures.
It has kept its general appearance, and now, almost 15 years later, here we are with the latest generation 2018 Cayenne, being offered to its customers for 74,828 euros for the standard variant and 91,964 euros for the S one.
You might say that there are no differences between the previous generation and the recently unveiled model, but a true “connoisseur” would spot them in an instant.
The 2018 Porsche Cayenne brings fresh the latest LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System, updated front grille, as well as the 20- or 21-inch alloy wheels with white brake calipers. It is also equipped with the high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brakes, Porsche Advanced Cockpit with 12.3-inch full-HD touchscreen, or Porsche Communication Management and Porsche Connect.
The car is also bigger, with a wider interior, providing an additional of 100 liters of cargo space, for a total of 770 liters. This also makes room for a six-cylinder turbo engine, which in the standard form delivers 340 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque. The same variant sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds.
On the other hand, the 2018 Cayenne S outputs 440 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque, providing the same sprint in 5.2 seconds. The S also comes with a top speed of 265 km/h.
Mechanically, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne brags with the new eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission, Porsche Traction Management, optional rear-axle steering, roll stabilization and the latest air suspension, all being part of Porsche`s 4D Chassis Control system.
