What to expect from the new Porsche Cayenne

What to expect from the new Porsche Cayenne

Porsche’s largest SUV has sold in huge numbers since first launching in 2002, and its successor in 2011; the brand new model will be the third-generation Cayenne. Regardless of the stickered headlights, it’s not hard to see that the Mk3 Cayenne’s styling is a gentle evolution of its predecessors.

According to reports, the new Porsche Cayenne is built on the VW Group’s MLB platform, with very similar architecture to the Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. It is said to be the shortest car in history and has a greater agility than the Q7 and Bentayga. It is also lighter than the outgoing Cayenne with a lower roofline.

There’s a choice of two V6 petrol engines for entry-level models- with the regular Cayenne equipped with 335bhp, and the Cayenne S with 434bhp. The latter is expected to plummet under the five-second mark from 0-62mph.

Reports have revealed that there will also be a Porsche Cayenne Turbo with 4.0-litre twin turbocharged V8 with a staggering amount of power. Plus, it is predicted to develop no less than 540bhp.

Sticking to routing, diesel engines are set to feature, with both V6 AND V8 options featuring established engines from Audi.

Hybrid versions are set to follow, with the most affordable planned to use the same 2.9 litre V6 engine as the regular Cayenne S. According to the manufacturer, they are also planning a very high performance Hybrid S, which will utilise the Cayenne Turbo’s V8 and a total power output as gigantic as 670bhp.

We should also expect a bigger boot from this model, which we are still waiting on pictures for.
