Porsche had last showcased the third generation 2018 Cayenne at the recently concluded Frankfurt Motor Show. The upcoming 2018 model is stated to be faster and better performing than its predecessors. Interestingly, for the first time, the 2018 Cayenne will also get a rear-wheel steering system.
Mechanically, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne gets a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine which generates 340bhp of power and 450Nm of torque. Inside, the new Cayenne shares detailing from the Panamera. The centre console is dominated by a 12.3-inch large infotainment touchscreen. The instrument cluster is an analogue tachometer flanked by a seven-inch digital screen on either side. The cabin comes loaded with all the connected features Porsche has on offer. There are plethora of driving aids as well. Boot space has also increased to 770 litres.
The new Cayenne gets redesigned headlamps that complement the front grille with horizontal slats and bigger air-intakes. The silhouette is noticeably sharper with a raked D-pillar to lend the SUV a sportier stance. The new Cayenne is also longer and wider than the outgoing model, but its height has been lowered this time around.
