Face lifted Porsche Cayenne is revealed few weeks ago. Personally, I really like the second generation Porsche Cayenne. Even though, Cayenne is contradicting with Porsche heritage but I really appreciate the high quality interior and ground breaking technology. And Cayenne can do some off road as well. In case, you are keen on going off road, just buy a Toyota Land Cruiser!
The new Cayenne offer standard LED headlights. Improved efficiency thank to air flaps position in front of the radiators. Also, Cayenne S E-Hybrid is the first plug-in hybrid SUV on market. Cayenne S E-Hybrid is powered by a 95 HP electric motor with 10.8 kWh battery with the range of 36 km and limited top speed of 125 km/h. The petrol engine is a 3-lt supercharged V6 with 333 HP and with the combination of both power units, Cayenne S E-Hybrid generates 416 HP and 590 nm of torque. The top speed is 243 km/h and only 5.9 seconds is needed to reach 100 km/h. CO2 emission level is 79 CO2/km but this level does not provide you any exemption from the London Congestion Charge!
Also, Cayenne S does not offer a V8 anymore and features a 3.6-lt bi-turbo. And you can find the spec of the of Turbo, Turbo S, Diesel and Diesel on Porsche’s website. Because, it was too much of boring data.
Personally, I really like the Cayenne with the recent face lift. Also, E-Hybrid is a great innovation for this segment. Unfortunately, Cayenne may not offer the same off road ability like the Range Rover but the rest of technology packed inside the Cayenne is way way better than Range Rover. The BMW X5 offers more pre-crash and intelligent driving assistance than the Cayenne but there is no plug-in hybrid version of X5 yet. And also, Cayenne looks way better than the X5.
Does Cayenne worth to buy? Yes!
