Every Porsche can be configured to your preference. Porsche Connect is the same. My Porsche therefore enables you to personalise and use many of the Porsche Connect functions and services in a way that suits your particular needs. Plan your route and send it to your Porsche. Call up the current fuel level, retrieve stats relating to your last drive, or check whether you remembered to close the doors and windows. And, if you like, you can also let family or friends have access to My Porsche and certain functions of your Porsche.
Would you like to extend your subscription period? Or purchase extra Porsche Connect services? Visit the Porsche Connect Store and discover more about what Porsche Connect has to offer.
Porsche Connect in all its versatility: at Porsche Connect, you can find out everything you need to know about the services, apps and functions available.
The customary identifying features are there to be seen, including the strongly emphasised front wings, the long, downward sloping bonnet with its power dome, and the characteristic three-piece air intakes, which are even larger and more dominant.
The front end is new and commands a very imposing presence – even when stationary, it gives clues to the sheer strength of performance packed within. The LED main headlights can be optionally upgraded to include the new LED matrix beam.
At the side, the sharpened contouring of the roof, which descends sleekly all the way back to the roof spoiler, catches the eye. So do the newly styled doors and new wheels up to 21 inches in size with – for the first time on the Cayenne – mixed tyres up to 315 mm at the rear. All extra details that reinforce the sporty overall impression.
The rear has been completely restyled. Attention is drawn directly to the succinct light strip, which stretches the full width of the rear and elegantly accentuates the presence of the new Cayenne. The taillights are designed with cutting-edge, precise LED technology and replicate the styling concept of the headlights. Their individual lighting components are perceived as three-dimensional elements. Another highlight of the car's design.
Overall, the new Cayenne appears more broad-shouldered by comparison with the predecessor generation – making it more muscular, more athletic and more dynamic.
Exquisite, sporty, ergonomic. Not least thanks to the low-profile, conspicuously wide dashboard and the ascending centre console for swift hand movements from the multifunction Sports steering wheel to the gear selector.
Our origins are in motorsport. This is where we learned how important it is to bring vehicle and driver as close together as possible. The interior is practically built around the driver, and is absolutely driver-centric as a result.
The same applies to the seats: sporty with a capital ‘S’. And it also applies to the newly styled rear seats, each one of which induces motorsport sensations. Without having to sacrifice comfort.
New in all Cayenne models: the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept. The centre console with Direct Touch Control has a surface in glass look featuring touch-sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions. In between: the compact gear selector. Above the centre console is Porsche Communication Management (PCM), which features a full-HD 12-inch touchscreen display and includes an online navigation module for intuitive operation. Behind the multifunction Sports steering wheel is the new instrument cluster. To the right and left of the customary Porsche analogue rev counter – with classic needle design – are two high-resolution display screens that visualise virtual instruments, maps and other information as required.
Available as an option, the coloured ambient lighting – new in the Cayenne – enriches the interior with clever light accents. You can choose from a variety of colour schemes for any mood and even change the light intensity to suit your preference.
All models impress with strengths typical of every Cayenne: spaciousness, great versatility and an array of carefully selected materials. Exactly what you desire, as there is also a wide range of personalisation options.
The innovation behind this brake is the first ever combination of a cast-iron brake disc with a ceramic coating (tungsten carbide). Advantages over the conventional cast-iron brake of comparable construction and size: even better responsiveness and particularly high fading stability.
The Cayenne generation of engines has been redeveloped completely from scratch and they now offer even greater power and torque. Combined with a further improvement in efficiency.
Let's start with the first two new creations: the 250 kW (340 hp) turbocharged V6 engine in the Cayenne and the twin-turbo V6 engine in the Cayenne S, which produces 324 kW (440 hp). On both drive units, the turbocharger is positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo – delivering a more rapid response. The engines are also equipped with VarioCam Plus: a system that adjusts the camshafts and valve lift.
For efficiency, all engines also come with electrical system recuperation, thermal management and the auto start/stop function with coasting function.
Another essential platform for enhanced efficiency and further improved performance: Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). PAA actively manipulates the aerodynamic behaviour of the car, e.g. by controlling numerous flaps integrated into the air intakes.
The efficient 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine in the Cayenne is equipped with a twin-scroll turbocharger positioned between the cylinder banks and produces 250 kW (340 hp). The maximum torque of 450 Nm is achieved between 1,340 and 5,300 rpm.
The newly developed 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine in the Cayenne S produces a mighty 324 kW (440 hp), making it 15 kW (20 hp) more powerful than the engine in the predecessor model – despite a reduction in fuel consumption. Torque: 550 Nm at 1,800–5,500 rpm.
The rear seats, like the front seats, are designed to be either particularly comfortable or especially sporty and, therefore, also feature elevated side bolsters. Now even more flexible, they can be folded down in the ratio 40 : 20 : 40, offer 160 mm of fore/aft adjustment and boast 10 adjustment positions for the backrest angle (to 29 degrees). Depending on the model, the luggage compartment has a resulting capacity of between 745 litres and a maximum of 1,710 litres.
*With the rear bench seat in the Cayenne and Cayenne S folded down; up to 1,680 litres in the Cayenne Turbo.
Sometimes there are several ways to get us to our destination. These could be in the form of newly incorporated features, such as adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology or rear-axle steering.
Also new is integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control. It centrally analyses the driving situation in all three spatial dimensions, e.g. pitch, roll and yaw. From this data, it computes the optimum driving states and synchronises all chassis systems in real time.
Adaptive air suspension enhances both driving dynamics and comfort at the same time. The use of three-chamber technology makes it possible to enjoy an even better combination of comfort and sportiness because the spring rate is adjusted to suit the driving mode and situation. The air suspension also features a self-levelling function to keep the vehicle level constant, PASM and a ride-height adjustment capability – so that you can actively vary the ground clearance as the need arises.
Optional rear-axle steering is available for the Cayenne models for the first time. It enhances performance and everyday practicality in equal measure. During low-speed manoeuvres, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This has the virtual effect of shortening the wheelbase. The turning circle is reduced, agility is increased and parking becomes noticeably easier to manage. During high-speed manoeuvres, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This virtual extension of the wheelbase increases driving stability.
PDCC is an active roll stabilisation system. It registers the lateral inclination of the body induced by cornering from the very outset and acts to suppress it. The system also reduces the lateral instability of the vehicle on uneven ground. What's new is the inclusion of electromechanical anti-roll bars. These respond faster than their hydraulic equivalents and work more efficiently. The result: improved performance.
The better everything works in tune, the more dynamic, comfortable, efficient and safe the progress you will make. Porsche assistance systems are geared for sporty, active driving, giving you the driving pleasure you expect from a Porsche.
Night Vision Assist provides the driver with information even beyond the range of the headlights. An infrared camera detects pedestrians, deer and other large wildlife before they are illuminated by the headlights. In combination with PDLS Plus, the marker light function briefly flashes the headlight at the pedestrian on the kerbside or in the carriageway three times to alert the driver's attention.
The LED matrix beam strategically deactivates specific segments of the permanent main-beam cone. 84 individually controlled LEDs adapt to the situation ahead by switching off or dimming accordingly. Vehicles in front or in the oncoming lane are faded out, while the areas in between and to the side continue to receive full illumination.
PDLS Plus, which includes all the functions of PDLS, comes with electronic cornering lights and an Intersection Assistant function based on navigation data. As you approach a crossroads or T junction, the Intersection Assistant activates the left and right cornering lights, and the light cone becomes wider and shorter – for enhanced illumination of your surroundings.
With the Burmester®, BOSE® and Sound Package Plus sound systems, you get the best listening experience. On all five seats.
