The next Porsche Cayenne is approaching the end of its life cycle, as a successor has been spotted several times in prototype form. The exterior is still partially disguised, but we can distinguish most of the details of the third-generation model that seems to have a more elegant look dominated by a longer, flatter roof.
The 2018 Porsche Cayenne style cues are a mix of traditional Porsche details with elements of the Macan and Panamera recently launched in its design. The headlights are an evolution of the latest Cayenne, while the LED headlights with matrix beam are just one of the high-tech additions to the car. There 2018 Porsche Cayenne is a large grille underneath, while an increase in dimensions means that the Cayenne has a greater presence on the road than before.
Inside, the Cayenne uses a dashboard similar to that of the Panamera. There is a large center console as before, although it is much cleaner thanks to the 12.3-inch touch screen system now in use. Like the Q7 and Bentayga, the Cayenne has access to a 48-volt power supply, which means that Porsche is able to offer an active anti-roll bar on the list of options to boost the Cayenne’s handling.
The standard Porsche Cayenne comes with a 3.0-liter turbo V6 engine (336bhp / 332lb ft) for 6.2 seconds at 62 mph and 152 mph flat. However, the Porsche Cayenne S gets a brand new 2.9-liter engine with a pair of turbos, so the peak power is 434bhp and 406lb ft. It means 0-62 mph in 5.2sec. As before, you are able to specify the Sport Chrono Pack and this drops 0.3sec from the sprints above 0-62mph. It includes Sport, Sport +, individual driving modes as well as character tuning.
