Porsche Cayenne

More and more efficient, more inside and lighter overall, into the future of technology and in elegant design — the new is more Porsche than before.

Led by the Porsche Cayenne S the first production car from with hybrid drive, the new of models paves the way in terms of efficiency, with a reduction in consumption by up to 23 per cent versus the models.

Like every the new Cayenne has been developed to the principle of Porsche Intelligent more power on less greater efficiency and lower CO2

Given these facts and three out of five models in the remain below the limit of ten fuel consumption per 100 kilometres in the New Driving Cycle. Two models the Cayenne Diesel at 195 g/km and the S Hybrid at 193 g/km — remain below the emission of 200 grams of CO2 per kilometre.

This reduction of fuel consumption the entire range of Porsche models results, among things, from the introduction of new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic complete with Auto Stop and an even wider of gear increments, thermal on the engine and transmission cooling recupera tion of the on-board variable overrun cut-off not least, consistent reduction of and intelligent lightweight construction.

Porsche Cayenne

Benefiting a weight-optimised mix of materials and concept on the overall vehicle such as the extra-light all-wheel drive, is down on the Porsche Cayenne to mention just one example, by no than 185 kilos or almost 410 lb, the improvement in product substance and an higher standard of all-round Clearly, this is good not only in terms of fuel and CO2 emissions, but also when it to performance, agility and handling on the

As a result, the new Porsche Cayenne even more driving than before both and offroad, combined with greater everyday driving enhanced comfort and supreme Brand-new, sporting but elegant makes the new generation of the Cayenne in an even closer member of the family, bringing out its particular as a sporting performer even from every angle and re-vealing that particular and design so typical of a Porsche.

Premiere of the Porsche Cayenne Parallel Full Hybrid

the Cayenne S Hybrid, Porsche is introducing the Company’s first drive vehicle in the market. this trendsetting system, engineers are following in the footsteps of no than Ferdinand Porsche who created the Lohner-Porsche Semper way back in the year 1900. To day, the Semper Vivus is as the first functional full in the world.

The Porsche Cayenne S is driven primarily by a supercharged V6 with direct gasoline developing maximum output of 333 hp. modern power unit with an electric motor 34 kW (47 hp) output and peak torque of 300 Nm lb) maintained consistently up to a speed of rpm.

The electric motor is to drive the Porsche Cayenne by or support the combustion engine, also serving as a generator and Together with the separator it forms the hybrid module between the combustion engine and the new automatic transmission.

A further component of the hybrid system is the nickel metal-hydride (NiMh) beneath the floor of the luggage serving to save electrical generated when applying the and re-gained while driving.

a six-cylinder engine, the Porsche S Hybrid offers the power and of an eight-cylinder on much lower consumption. With its overall of 380 hp, the new Cayenne S Hybrid consumes 8.2 ltr/100 km (equal to 34.5 mpg in the New European Driving Cycle and CO2 emissions to a mere 193 g/km. makes the new Cayenne S Hybrid not the cleanest Cayenne with the level of CO2, but rather the Porsche throughout the brand’s portfolio.

Specific hybrid conditions

The Porsche Cayenne S offers the following driving together with many qualities:

Driving on electric alone: In this case the motor drives the vehicle all by without any support from the engine. With the driver for a moderate style of motoring for example in residential areas the Cayenne S Hybrid is able to short distances with emissions and minimum noise up to a of 60 km/h or 37 mph.

Boosting: In case the Cayenne S Hybrid is by the combustion engine and the electric together. The joint power of drive units ensures acceleration, for example when

Shifting the load point: The engine drives the vehicle by at the same time charging the battery through the electric acting as a generator. The power by the generator constitutes a further on the combustion engine, which is able to operate at a more load point with efficiency.

Recuperation: The kinetic of the vehicle is converted into energy when applying the and the battery is charged in the process.

Whenever the driver takes the gas pedal at a speed of up to 156 km/h or 97 mph the engine is switched off and detached to any drag forces from the

Auto Start Stop: The engine is automatically switched off at a for example with the traffic on red or in a traffic jam.

Compact and parallel full hybrid

uses a parallel full instead of the usual split to be found otherwise in the market and there are several reasons for concept: Unlike other concepts which offer benefits primarily in town, the developed by Porsche also the opportunity to sail along in the S Hybrid up to a speed of 156 km/h or 97 mph using the combustion engine. A advantage is that parallel hybrid offers the acceleration and so typical of a Porsche without the band effect of split systems. All this makes the full hybrid a perfect for Porsche’s philosophy to offer performance and supreme efficiency all in

A further advantage is the compact of the system, the complete hybrid measuring only 147.5 or 5.8 in length. Integrated between the engine and the transmission, the hybrid is made up primarily of a ring-shaped motor and a separator clutch on the facing the combustion engine, the same flow of power and as a conventional drive system.

A achievement from Porsche: control by the Hybrid Manager

A full hybrid makes demands of the components involved and the con functions. Interaction of the main — the combustion engine, the motor, the separator clutch, and the — is extremely complex and is by the Hybrid Manager using all the of the Porsche hybrid system. The Manager receives all driving and information and controls both the motor and the combustion engine for fuel economy under all

It also makes sure the battery does not run too flat nor it is charged and de-charged too often.

key component of parallel full drive is the separator clutch the combustion engine and the electric using particularly strong and friction pads. The separator works so smoothly and sensitively the driver will not even the combustion engine engaging and although the full power of drive units is always without the slightest delay for and powerful acceleration. This that with the combustion switched off all the driver has to do to start the almost immediately is press the gas pedal, the engine revving up and the clutch engaging without the even noticing the entire

The Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid all this in just 300 milliseconds, several processes all at the same As soon as the combustion engine in the converter lockup clutch on the converter in the automatic transmission up and the torque coming from the motor is briefly increased to the six-cylinder. At the same time the between the electric motor and the engine closes in a defined curve within 70 milliseconds.

from the intricate interaction of the engine and the electric motor, all is ensured by the innovative spindle in the clutch control unit the hydraulic pressure operating the with a level of precision seen before.

Every the engine cuts in the Hybrid evaluates current driving and the driver’s wish for acceleration, the appropriate starting procedure either a comfort start of the engine or, if the driver wishes to more power, a particularly power start.

Additional of fuel consumption: sailing up to 156 (97 mph)

Using the separator Porsche full hybrid is also able to offer a reduction of fuel consumption at speeds by driving in the sailing Whenever the driver does not any drive power, all he has to do is take the gas pedal to completely dis connect the engine from the drivetrain at of up to 156 km/h (97 mph). The driver is able to eliminate engine forces with their braking effect while thus reducing both resistance and fuel consumption.

In the mode the electric motor as a generator, delivering electric

Should the driver accelerate in the mode, for example when the combustion engine starts quickly and smoothly within of a second, revving up to the appropriate speed matching the actual of the vehicle. As a result, the driver is to accelerate spontaneously also at speed, just like in a Cayenne with a conventional unit.

The sailing mode is from low road speeds and automatically once the driver his foot off the gas pedal, opening up the clutch and automatically switching off the engine. Sailing is therefore to gliding or simply rolling without using the power of the engine or electric motor.

The Cayenne S Hybrid delivers its output in the boost mode, the drive power of the combustion and the electric motor to one another as a big of the parallel full hybrid While the combustion engine its maximum torque of 440 Nm (324 in the range between 3,000 and rpm, the electric motor is to use its full torque of up to 300 Nm/221 all the way from a standstill.

Maximum of the two drive units of 380 hp comes at rpm, while combined of 580 Nm/427 lb-ft cuts in at 1,000 rpm for truly muscular at all times.

With the maximum of the two drive units being in different speed ranges, it is not to simply add up the maximum torque Since the torque delivered by the motor drops again at speeds, the combustion engine to benefit from the electric ensures an ongoing, consistent and torque curve also at engine revs, the two drive supplementing each other and allowing the driver to use all the superior of the system throughout the entire of engine speed.

The Porsche S Hybrid thus benefits the intelligent interaction of both units through its particularly acceleration from a standstill and driving dynamics also at speeds, for example when

With the Porsche Cayenne Button in the normal mode, the boost effect is available through the kick-down function. the Sports Button activated, the range is shifted forward and the two units interact with one as soon as the driver presses the gas pedal with maximum by 80 per cent.

E-Power Button driving range under power

Activating the E-Power in the centre console, the driver is to extend the availability of the all-electric mode. Activation of the button is by an LED on the button itself and by the word coming on in blue in the instrument

Availability of E-Power depends on such as the battery charge and battery temperature. The E-Power modifies the gas pedal control allowing the system to follow the wish for acceleration much smoothly and preventing the combustion from cutting in automatically at a too a point whenever the driver to use more power.

Saving by generating electric power

A fundamental benefit offered by the Manager is its ability to shift the point when driving the combustion engine: Every unit operates most within a certain load Whenever the six-cylinder runs this point under load, the Hybrid Manager gives more gas and uses extra power to generate energy. The generator output and the of the throttle butterflies are therefore in the most appropriate way for running the engine with greater making optimum use of the fuel and parking some of the electrical generated in the battery.

All this unnoticed to the driver, with engine and road speed unchanged. In other words, the Cayenne drives as if it were up from a flat stretch of to a gradient with cruise switched on, the car thus travelling at the consistent speed.

Last but certainly not least, the Manager makes sure when pressing down the pedal as much energy as goes from the electric operating as a generator to the battery. To this effect, the control sets the power of the generator to the of the brake pedal, ensuring the vehicle is braked in part in some cases completely by electric power alone, the brake system only in at higher speeds and under brake power.

High-power battery

The Porsche Cayenne S uses a nickel metal-hydride as its traction battery — is battery technology already in the automobile.

The nickel metal-hydride does not require any maintenance and is fitting conveniently thanks to its dimensions beneath the completely floor of the luggage compartment to the substantial luggage capacity by the Cayenne.

The battery generates output of 38 kW and saves up to 1.7 kilowatt of energy. The effective battery is presented clearly in per cent in the instrument cluster and on the monitor of the PCM Porsche Communication Management unit.

The battery is charged driving through the recuperative energy process and by shifting the point of the combustion engine for fuel efficiency. Again practical conditions, the battery is to re-gain the energy of up to one litre of every 100 kilometres on the road. The saved, in turn, may be used to exclusively on electric power using the combustion engine or to the combustion engine while

Weighing approximately 80 kg or 176 lb together its frame, the battery is made up of 240 generating the power required of 288 With its operating range at -30, the battery offers starting performance even in very — cold At the same time the temperature goes all the way to 40 C or 104 F, meaning that the covers virtually the entire of temperatures the driver will in the car.

When charging and the battery generates heat must be dissipated in order to the battery cells. Climatised air the interior is therefore used to the battery, being drawn in the passenger compartment through beneath the rear seat

In addition to this new technology, the Cayenne S Hybrid comes a conventional 12-volt battery the driver’s seat supplying to the vehicle’s on-board network. 12-volt battery may be re-charged by a battery charger, while at the time the Porsche Dealer and Station is able to charge the battery via a high-voltage connection and an charge unit.

In the parking the Battery Manager regularly the charge status of the battery and the voltage levels within cell. To optimise the charge of the complete battery and keep voltage within its tolerance battery charge may be automa balanced between the cells or the may be de-charged in an appropriate process.

parking the entire high-voltage is opened up by a high-performance switch, electric power from while the car is at a standstill and securing the battery against any unwanted

When the driver starts the car his key, finally, the battery via the 12-volt onboard network the protector switch to start the engine via the battery and to close the circuit once again.

and fuel-efficient: the engines

The new Cayenne with an upgraded generation of the already featured in the former the Porsche Cayenne boasts a V6 naturally-aspirated power unit output increased to 300 hp, the Cayenne comes with a high-torque V6 turbodiesel, and the Cayenne S as well as the Turbo both feature a 4.8-litre V8.

All of the engines have upgraded and updated in their features, resulting in part in a increase in engine output and a reduction of fuel consumption on all

For the first time the new Porsche comes with map-controlled management masterminding the processes place in the vehicle. Forming of the thermal management system, the features two cooling circuits as a function of coolant temperature by a for automatic, on-demand interruption of supply as long as the engine is This enables the engine to up more quickly, at the same reducing friction, fuel and emissions in the warm-up phase.

on the increase in engine temperature, is allowed to flow through the (in the so-called small circuit) warming up, activating the main as a function of the engine’s operating (main coolant circuit). thermal management alone fuel consumption by up to 1.5 per cent by the warm-up period shorter the engine has been started

All new versions of the Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic S also come separate thermal management on the Here again, the objective is to the optimum operating temperature as as possible in order to minimise losses — which is why the exchanger on the coolant circuit of the new Tiptronic S transmission is directly to the cooling circuit on the engine. allows quicker use of the heat in the coolant warmed up more whenever necessary, warming up the to its best operating temperature greater efficiency.

Yet a further serving to reduce fuel is on-board network recuperation. system shifts the generation of through the alternator for charging the battery in all new versions of the Cayenne to the application of the brakes while the is slowing down, thus part of the kinetic energy in the starter battery. When at a steady speed and when on the other hand, the alternator as little energy as possible and the network is supplied primarily the starter battery charged application of the brakes. This the combustion engine from the need to charge the alternator, again means a direct of fuel consumption.

In the New European Cycle, for example, recuperation of supplied to the on-board network fuel consumption by 0.15 kilometres.

New: Auto Stop and variable overrun

All new versions of the Porsche Cayenne eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission on the base model and standard on all come with an Auto Stop function. Auto Stop switches off the combustion under defined conditions as as the vehicle is at a standstill, reducing consumption and emissions in the process and preventing the engine from unnecessarily, for example when at the traffic lights.

As soon as the comes to a halt due to application of the with the driver holding the pedal in position, the Auto Stop function will off the engine after about a informing the driver accordingly the green Auto Start symbol in the instrument cluster.

In the the driver may leave the selector in position D or M, and the engine will inactive also when to P and N. Once the driver lets go of the pedal, the engine will again and the driver can set off without a For reasons of safety, however, is not possible if the driver’s door or the compartment lid are open or if the driver is not his seat belt.

Under conditions the engine is intentionally not off when coming to a halt, for when the driver has activated the Mode, when towing a or when the vehicle is in a parking or process. In such cases the is informed by a yellow Auto Stop symbol in the instrument that the system has not switched off the

A further new feature is variable control, a further development of the overrun switch-off function. In overrun control switches off the of fuel in overrun whenever the engine is in overrun, with the easing back the gas pedal, for when approaching the traffic or driving downhill.

Compared conventional overrun control to inject fuel again as of a engine speed, fuel starts much later variable overrun control as a of driving conditions, helping to even more fuel in the

The six-cylinders: three engines, concepts

Porsche is able to no less than three V-engines with direct injection in the new generation of the Cayenne: The boasts Porsche’s upgraded power unit, the new Cayenne S comes as the first Porsche a supercharged three-litre. The Cayenne finally, features a three-litre engine based on the power already to be admired in the former

Apart from the significant of fuel consumption, the objective in the engine in the Porsche Cayenne was to more power and torque. the increase in engine power by 10 hp to 300 hp kW) and the increase in torque by 15 Nm/11 to a new peak of 400 Nm/295 lb-ft at rpm are the result of a whole range of Just three examples are the hot-film air mass metre, the of friction losses within the and the new set-up of electronic engine

New thermal management, variable control and Auto Start in conjunction with the new eight-speed S all help to ensure a higher of efficiency. This gives the new with optional Tiptronic S fuel consumption in the New European Cycle of just 9.9 ltr/100 km to 28.5 mpg imp), about 20 per better than on the former Combined with the standard gearbox without Auto Stop, fuel consumption is ltr/100 km (equal to 25.2 mpg still a reduction by about 10 per from the former model.

these new technologies, Porsche’s are focusing not only on fuel and performance, but also on specific serving to optimise running and motoring comfort on the road. In the 3.6-litre V6, these improvements a forged steel crankshaft not only to save weight, but to improve engine smoothness. And the help of the electronic dipstick, the is now able to check the engine oil while idling without to open up the engine lid.

achievement from Porsche: six-cylinder

The power unit in the new Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid an important premiere with not just because of the additional motor — rather, is the first time that is using a V6 with direct injection and supercharging as the primary of power. Displacing exactly cc, this outstanding power delivers maximum output of 333 hp kW) all the way from 5,500 — rpm, with peak of 440 Nm/324 lb-ft maintained from 3,000 — rpm.

Apart from the performance and driving qualities so of Porsche together with the power of a V8, the big advantages of this are low fuel consump tion, CO2 emissions, and the fulfilment of all emission the world over. As a result, the S Hybrid offers the efficient rightly expected of a Porsche in a new and convincing manner.

The engine is a power unit with two on each row of cylinders and a cylinder angle of 90. Like the V8 power in the Porsche Cayenne S and Cayenne the new three-litre V6 features an aluminium block, an aluminium cylinder as well as modern engine such as thermal management and a controlled oil pump. And like on the V6 power units, the oil supply uses wet sump lubrication.

Porsche engines so far, the new unit is boosted not by exhaust gas chargers, but rather by a supercharger with an intercooler. The reason, simply, is that this offers clear benefits for the purposes and characteristics of parallel hybrid drive in an SUV: the supercharger featuring a permanent link to the crankdrive, charge is immediately available and the flow of air increases consistently as a function of speed. The position of the supercharger the V-section of the two rows of cylinders the travel distance for intake and air flowing to the cylinders short and giving the supercharged engine a response and muscular torque at low speeds.

And last but not least, the runs perfectly in unison the electric motor.

The supercharger is a blower complete with a Two parallel shafts connected by in the supercharger housing are driven by belt drive, while on each of the two shafts seal off the at all sides, that is against the of the opposite rotor and the supercharger

Moving in opposite directions, the two convey the air without compression the rotors from the air intake in the to the air outlet. The rotors each with four vanes and are set off the axis by a total of 160 to ensure a and continuous supply of air. The effect is provided by ramming the air the air mass built up upstream of the valves.

To improve the charge finally, the supercharger comes an intercooler featuring a low-temperature circuit on each row of cylinders.

charge air is not required under all conditions and the ongoing build-up of pressure would create an air jam accordingly, a loss of power, the comes with integrated pressure control. Instead of an control system using a clutch to connect and disconnect the the system chosen in the Cayenne a fully-controlled bypass flap.

Fuel-efficient and clean: V6 diesel

on the three-litre turbodiesel in the Cayenne Porsche’s engineers sought all to further reduce fuel and exhaust emissions in the process of the engine. The result is that power remaining unchanged at 240 hp kW) and torque reaching an impressive 550 lb-ft, fuel consumption is from an already low 9.3 ltr (equal to mpg imp) to truly outstanding 7.4 km, equal to 38.2 mpg imp. At the time it almost goes saying that the new Porsche Diesel complies in full the EU5 emission limit.

Fuel is into the combustion chambers by building up pressure of up to 1,800 The charge effect is provide by with variable turbine (VTG turbochargers), with controlled exhaust gas recirculation, an catalyst, as well as a particulates ensuring highly effective management.

An essential feature in the engine’s efficiency was to integrate a controlled oil pump. Now the oil pump is on-demand by engine management, oil pressure being adjusted by moving a gear wheel the pump shaft and thus the level of geometric volume. As a the pump only operates as to meet current engine at the respective load level.

appropriately optimised, exhaust gas (EGR) serves to minimise and help the engine fulfil the EU5 standard. The exhaust gas recirculation now comes with a higher of cooling efficiency and, as a greater throughput. A further is the reduction of peak temperatures in the process, with less oxides being formed in the chamber.

Superior power even greater efficiency: the V8 units

The fully upgraded of V8 power units is made up of the more powerful 4.8-litre engine now delivering 400 hp and 500 Nm/369 maximum torque in the new Porsche S and a turbocharged 500 hp together with 700 lb-ft in the new Cayenne Turbo.

the two power units being and upgraded together, the natural-aspiration and the engine share a particularly number of common parts. And again it almost goes saying that the new V8 engines in the Cayenne S and the Cayenne Turbo with all new technologies to reduce consumption, such as thermal on-board network recuperation, overrun control, and the Auto Stop function.

The proven block of the V8 power units is enhanced by the even more use of aluminium and magnesium, saving 7 kg or 15 lb in weight on the valve timing the valve cover itself, the adjuster, various bolts, and the As an example, the new generation of V8 power comes with a new lightweight adjuster for adjusting valve through VarioCam Plus completely of aluminium. This reduces engine weight by 1.7 kg or 3.8 lb, minimising the rotating masses in the improving the speed of adjustment, and the engine an even more response.

Both power now feature pressure-controlled measurement of air instead of a hot-film air mass with the advantage of lower air resistance and an even better of air.

On the normal-aspiration power in the Porsche Cayenne S a newly lighter crankshaft and lighter rods reduce the movement of and weight within the engine. In the crankdrive on the eight-cylinder is 2.3 kg or 5.1 lb lighter before.

A further feature on the is the oil flow housing made of again reducing engine by approximately 2 kg or 4.4 lb. The intake camshafts, to yet another example, have optimised for a very smooth of power and torque. Together the new intake system boasting a throttle butterfly and optimised engine management, the 4.8-litre V8 now delivers maximum output of 400 hp at rpm.

In combination with technologies serving to reduce consumption, these modifications help to ensure optimum economy: The new Cayenne S requires 10.5 ltr/100 km (equal to mpg imp) in the New European Driving approximately 23 per cent less its predecessor. CO2 emissions, to mention example, are down 26 per cent to 245

The V8 biturbo engine featured in the Cayenne Turbo comes a new, weight-optimised crankshaft and a new oil housing made of aluminium. The features a larger counterweight than the former crankdrive, the overall weight of the crankdrive by 0.6 kg or 1.3 lb.

Reduction in weight and the latest technology makes the turbocharged power unit in the Cayenne even more efficient, average fuel consumption in the New Driving Cycle of just ltr/100 km (equal to 24.6 mpg 23 per cent less than on the model.

At 270 g/km, CO2 emissions are 25 per cent versus the former Cayenne Turbo. Performance, on the hand, is even better before, the new Cayenne Turbo a top speed of 278 km/h or 172 mph and accelerating a standstill to 100 km/h in just 4.7

Ultra-modern exhaust systems as an option also in sports

To fulfil all emission standards the over, all models in the Porsche range come with an system specially tailored to engine. All exhaust units are of long-life stainless steel.

To emissions low particularly when the engine cold, the catalytic must be heated up quickly to its operating temperature. This is by keeping the exhaust manifolds on all very short, using the temperature of the exhaust gas to heat up the converters. As a result, the highly pre- and main catalysts are to warm up more quickly, highly effective management of emissions.

The Cayenne with its Tiptronic S and the Cayenne S are both as an option with a sports system generating an even and more voluminous sound.

The exhaust system is adjusted and set up by the Button featured as standard on the console.

First Tiptronic S Eight Gears

Porsche has the first Tiptronic S with gears for the new Cayenne model This highly advanced comes as standard on all models in the with the exception of the 3.6-litre Cayenne fitted as standard a six-speed manual gearbox.

this new eight-speed Tiptronic S, is offering a transmission in the Cayenne which stands out in particular its superior efficiency and fast for supreme shift and driving The overall range of gear up by 20 per cent, for example, is used to make the two additional gears overdrive or economy gears keeping the engine in the optimum and load range at all times: speed is reduced by 20 per cent, in the seventh and eighth gear, to substantially reduce fuel particularly on long stretches of the In practice this means an bigger improvement in fuel under everyday driving than in the standardised measuring

To optimise the engine’s starting the Porsche Cayenne with its new Tiptronic S always sets off in gear. Top speed, on the other comes in sixth gear.

up to 0.15 seconds faster on the new ensures maximum agility and pleasure at all times. Indeed, the process of shifting gears is so that the driver hardly any change in gears.

The fast with hardly any interruption of and pulling power allows a agile style of motoring in the automatic mode. The technology for this even faster is the new configuration of the hydraulic gearshift with direct control of the and optimised engagement use of the shift

Tiptronic S: programmed for individual profiles

Benefiting from gearshift programs, the driver is to control the shift behaviour of the S transmission through the gas and brake When moving the gas pedal the shift points are moved into the dynamic control without requiring the usual effect.

This prevents the from shifting up under whenever the driver takes the gas pedal abruptly, for example in a At the same time the appropriate is held in position to avoid up in a bend, making the vehicle more stable and safer on the

When applying the brakes on the other hand, Tiptronic S down quickly to the next gear to use the full brake of the engine. Gradient recognition, ensures even better uphill and extra brake from the engine when downhill.

As in the past, the driver has the of the two Normal and Sports modes. these basic programs, the control maps are adjusted more sensitively to the driver’s style of motoring.

To ensure performance immediately when the Sports Button, the control on the Tiptronic S transmission shift to the sports map than in the Normal suppressing gears 7 and 8 as a function of the style of motoring and the speed of the and shifting back when even under slight pressure in order to provide acceleration afterwards.

In the Normal Tiptronic S offers a particularly style of motoring, reducing consumption by shifting up early and down late.

In its gearshift the transmission in the Cayenne S Hybrid is to the wider range of driving this vehicle has to offer. is indeed essential to increase the effect on the brakes by adjusting speeds (when shifting or to re-start the combustion engine and comfortably when leaving the mode and shifting gears rarely.

This special of the eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission offers the optimum gearshift when boosting, with drive power coming the electric motor.

Offroad for rough terrain The Tiptronic S also comes with a offroad mode for rough (with the exception of the Cayenne S

Shifting up later and shifting earlier, this special reduces the number of gearshifts by maximum use of the speed range in each gear. To ensure control of the vehicle, the transmission not shift up or down automatically in the mode, even when the kicks down the gas pedal. A feature is that the converter clutch closes at a later than in the Normal and Sports allowing better dosage of particularly at low speeds and in rough

The driver will generally the new eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission via the level in the centre console or the two buttons on the steering wheel. one of the two buttons forward, he shifts up S, pulling one of the buttons towards from behind the steering the driver shifts down in S.

A three-spoke sports steering with shift paddles is available.

In that case the will shift up only the driver operates the selector pushes the buttons on the steering or kicks down the gas pedal.

its new Auto Start Stop every new Porsche Cayenne the driver to save extra in town. Combining this with an automatic transmission was a challenge for Porsche’s engineers, that the Cayenne is able to set off immediately after the engine is To do this after having to a halt, the engine and transmission sufficient oil pressure to ensure the transmission of power.

On a conventional transmission pressure is built up by a driven transmission fluid able to provide the oil pressure and flow for setting off only the engine has reached a higher With the additional electric oil on the new Tiptronic S transmission, on the other a sufficient supply of oil for the shift is maintained also while the has come to a halt. This it possible to minimise the response of the transmission, the vehicle setting off an Auto Start Stop without the slightest delay, and the and passengers not noticing any difference a vehicle with the engine running.

Porsche’s new eight-speed S is based on the former six-speed transmission, extended by an additional element providing the two extra The front and rear planetary have been re-configured to a broad spread of transmission

A further advantage is that the new does not require any more than the former unit, the eight-speed transmission measuring the same in length as the former gearbox. The better power-to-weight of the transmission, a higher degree of and the optimisation of individual components serve to enhance the overall of efficiency, high-performance vibration in the converter lock-up clutch, for allowing the engine to run with the locked up at far lower speeds in the of greater fuel economy.

Fuel-saving thermal management with Tiptronic S

To reach the operating temperature as quickly as after starting cold and minimise friction within the the new Tiptronic S for the first time with thermal management the transmission’s cooling circuit the engine’s cooling system via a exchanger. Depending on individual this ensures exactly the exchange of heat between the and transmission and helps to further fuel consumption on the new Cayenne. the engine being started for example, the cooling circuit on the is warmed up by the engine coolant up more quickly, thus frictional resistance in the transmission as as possible.

Then, with increasing, the heat exchanger is exclusively for cooling.

Should the effect of the heat exchanger not be the system will resort to the air exchanger with its higher fitted in the front of the vehicle.

Porsche Traction with a new concept

Porsche has a new concept of all-wheel drive for the new focusing in the process on two factors in lower weight and even agility on the road.

Introduction of the new Traction Management (PTM) with eight-speed Tiptronic S the need for a reduced-ratio gearbox making any concessions in terms of requirements relevant to the customer normal conditions.

A further of the new PTM is the introduction of numerous measures for the of weight on the rest of the drivetrain. In the use of lightweight propeller shafts, final drive units and rear, and the absence of a reduced-ratio saves some 33 kilos or 73 lb in

The focus in developing PTM was on optimising dynamics on the road while the outstanding offroad qualities of the Cayenne. The result is two different PTM geared to the specific characteristics of the new In the Cayenne Diesel and the Cayenne S PTM comes with permanent drive complete with a centre differential. In the Cayenne, S and Cayenne Turbo, on the other PTM features active all-wheel with an electronically controlled, multiple-plate clutch.

This all-wheel-drive system is featured on the sporting and dynamic versions of the Cayenne because, with its range of power and torque hangon all-wheel drive benefits in terms of driving agility and traction control, highlighting the performance of the specific concerned.

Permanent all-wheel with a self-locking centre on the other hand, is reserved to the Diesel and the Cayenne S Hybrid. engine and torque distribution on the axle featured as standard ensures the performance and driving typical of a Porsche also PTM featuring permanent all-wheel

Under all conditions Porsche Management distributes drive as required from the rear to the axle, thus combining traction and driving stability unusually dynamic handling. The compact power divider on the drive unit featured in the new Cayenne is housed in a separate directly next to the transmission.

PTM comes with the ABD Automatic Differential for improved traction, ASR Slip Control for improved stability, and on-demand PHC Porsche Control for driving down gradients in a smooth and controlled

All-wheel drive adjustable on each model by the offroad

Depending on the specific version of the the driver is able to adjust the offroad abilities in various

All systems are therefore optimised for requirements with the objective to traction on rough terrain. A switch on the Porsche Cayenne S for example, serves to activate Hill Control as an assistance cutting in as of a gradient 12 per cent.

The Cayenne S, and Cayenne Turbo further functions operated via a offroad switch in the centre In Offroad Mode 1 all relevant such as ABS operate in a traction-oriented program, in addition to Porsche Control. On models with air and PSM, in turn, the suspension switches to the offroad level.

The switch for the air suspension also the driver to choose the special level for an even greater and ramp angle as well as ride height for driving water.

Given their all-wheel-drive system, the Cayenne, S, and Cayenne Turbo come yet another optional setting: As as the driver selects Offroad 2, the longitudinal clutch is closed 100 per of even better traction on terrain. At the same time the controlled rear axle on the optional Porsche Torque Plus (PTV Plus) is in the all-wheel-drive management, automatically the right dosage of power on bad and rough terrain. Should one of the wheels start to slip on or loose ground, for example, the lock will smoothly drive power to the opposite wheel in order to re-gain

And should conditions require, all the has to do is press the offroad toggle for Offroad Mode 3, fully the rear axle differential in the

Active or permanent all-wheel depending on the character of each

Porsche Traction Management active all-wheel drive directly on the rear axle. The clutch controlled electronically by an motor masterminds the flow of power to the front axle in a variable process without any distribution.

With slip up on the rear axle, for example accelerating, the multiple-plate clutch in harder to feed more power to the front axle. monitoring driving conditions, the is furthermore able to respond to situations and requests from the allowing appropriate, dynamic of active all-wheel drive able to respond individually and before any unwanted slip is to build up on one of the axles.

An example: If the is steering into a bend, forces on the wheels steered are by reducing the level of drive on the front axle, thus a high standard of agility and acceleration. Then, when the accelerates out of the bend, drive is spread out evenly between the two for maximum traction.

Featuring technology, active all-wheel in the new Porsche Cayenne is identical to the drive system to be seen in the and Porsche’s sports cars. At the time maximum attention has given to the complex interaction of and offroad requirements on the new Cayenne, therefore further increase leading position over competitors also in this

Permanent all-wheel drive on the Diesel and Cayenne S Hybrid is out to convey 60 per cent of the drive to the front axle and 40 per cent to the axle under normal Whenever a wheel on one of the axles to spin — for example running on ice — the difference in between the two axles automatically the self-locking centre differential, drive power flowing to the with better traction.

Torque Vectoring Plus for greater agility

As an option all-wheel drive on the Cayenne, S, and Cayenne Turbo may for the first be upgraded by new PTV Porsche Torque Plus.

PTV Plus serves to both driving dynamics and using variable distribution of power on the rear wheels and an controlled cross differential on the axle.

Depending on the steering and steering speed, the position of the gas the yaw rate and road speed, PTV improves the vehicle’s steering and steering precision by the brakes as required on one of the rear wheels. To be precise, the inner rear in a bend is slowed down when the driver turns the while driving dynamically on the This feeds more to the outer rear wheel and an additional turning motion in the direction.

The result is even direct and dynamic steering in a

At low and medium speeds PTV Plus a significantly higher standard of and steering precision. Particularly accelerating out of a fast bend, and the wheels spinning, the electronically rear axle differential additionally to enhance the level of stability.

Interacting with Traction Management and Porsche Management, PTV Plus also enhanced driving stability on road surfaces, in wet weather and on Under offroad driving in turn, PTV Plus prevents the wheels from spinning.

Yet a advantage is that any intervention of the is specifically tailored to offroad the offroad toggle switch in the console enabling the driver to the rear axle differential 100 per cent.

Sporting, Comfortable,

Once again Porsche’s have succeeded in making the excellent driving characteristics of the significantly better. And once the name of the game is lightweight even greater use of aluminium and plastic materials as well as improvements reducing the weight of the by some 66 kg or 145 lb. The reduction in weight in this way not only increases the of driving dynamics on lower consumption, but also, by reducing the masses, serves to significantly the standard of driving comfort.

the exception of the Porsche Cayenne all models comes as standard steel springs which may for the time be combined as an option PASM Porsche Active sion Management, making the suspension even better in superior long-distance comfort, better performance, and supreme

Porsche Active Suspension is a bumper system for active, adjustment of the dampers front and On the new Cayenne the driver is able to three different programs by of the PASM suspension buttons on the console: Comfort, Normal, and Depending on the mode selected, and driving conditions, PASM damper power individually on wheel for optimum results and

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo with new air suspension and PASM is as standard in a combination also as an option on the other models. All struts on the front and rear are optimised for minimum weight and are now directly on the body for a significant of both torsional stiffness and behaviour.

A further important is that the new air suspension forms a system storing air in the system’s reservoir upon any change in height. Such interim serves, first, to save by using a compressor optimised to the new requirements and, second, the suspension to reach the ride chosen either manually or more quickly than

Last but not least, the new air spring with PASM, featuring a new of the software, provides an even spread of driving characteristics in the Comfort, Normal and Sport

PDCC Porsche Dynamic Control as an option

On the Cayenne, S, and the Cayenne Turbo, the air suspension and may be further enhanced as an option the addition of PDDC Porsche Chassis Control.

PDCC is an system serving to stabilise the of the vehicle in bends. It enhances driving performance and motoring ensuring dynamic distribution of forces in the interest of supreme and an optimum balance of the car.

The is an extremely comfortable and, at the time, a very sporting experience combined with agility at all speeds as well as steering behaviour and good balance behaviour.

The driver is to switch PDCC to its offroad by means of the toggle switch on the console, with the two halves of the anti-roll bars being disconnected from one another in case for even better in rough terrain. This greater articulation of the axles, the wheels longer on the ground in to convey more power and force.

Brake system on all versions of the Cayenne

To meet the demands made of the brake of a Porsche, all new models in the Porsche come with an even optimised brake system. In of their looks, the brakes from one another in accordance Porsche’s well-known colour The Cayenne and Cayenne Diesel with black brake the brake callipers on the Cayenne S and the S Hybrid are in silver, and the Cayenne boasts red brake callipers.

As an option all models in the range are with race-proven PCCB Ceramic Composite Brakes yellow brake callipers.

The brakes are six-piston aluminium fixed-calliper brakes with discs measuring 350 millimetres/13.8 in on the Cayenne and the Cayenne Diesel. On the S and the Cayenne S Hybrid the discs 360 millimetres/14.2 in diameter. The Cayenne finally, comes with composite brake discs an aluminium cover and a grey friction ring measuring 390

At the rear all models feature aluminium monobloc fixed-calliper and brake discs measuring 330 in diameter. The only exception in case is the Porsche Cayenne which, on account of its supreme features larger brake also on the rear wheels 358 millimetres/14.1 in diameter and inner-vented for better dissipation of heat.

The brake discs on the front of the Cayenne Turbo help to the weight of the vehicle and unsprung ensuring even better on the road, enhanced driving and comfort, greater agility, and an higher standard of handling all

All new models in the Porsche Cayenne come with an electrically parking brake positioned conveniently to the left of the steering Controlled by a button, the electrical brake can be activated manually and by pressing the foot brake. The brake is also released after manual operation the driver presses down the gas to indicate his intention to start

Given all these qualities and the electrical parking brake even greater comfort and when parking the new Cayenne.

the brakes even better ever: PCCB Porsche Composite Brakes

Like all Porsche models, the new Cayenne is as an option with high-performance Porsche Ceramic Composite tried and tested in motorsport. this is the first time PCCB brakes are also on the Cayenne and the Cayenne Diesel.

The advantage of these ceramic is the low weight of the brake discs 50 per cent lighter than cast-iron discs of the same and dimensions. A further benefit is the brakes respond even and more precisely under lower pedal force.

brakes are available as of a wheel of 20 inches on the Porsche Cayenne and 19 inches on the other models. On the the Cayenne Diesel, the Cayenne S and the S Hybrid the PCCB brakes with brake discs 390 millimetres/15.4 in diameter at the front and 370 at the rear. The Cayenne Turbo brake discs measuring 410 in diameter at the front and 370 millimetres/ in diameter at the rear.

Porsche Management for superior driving

Enhanced to an even higher PSM Porsche Stability Management as standard on every model superior active driving in terms of both longitudinal and dynamics, while maintaining the so typical of a Porsche all the way to the extreme

The PSM set-up has been upgraded for the new of models and has been newly say, for the combination with new Traction Management or optional Torque Vectoring Plus.

in the PSM system permanently monitor the of travel, road speed, the yaw and the lateral acceleration of the car. these readings, PSM calculates the direction of motion. Should differ from the desired and track, PSM will ac tivate the as required on individual wheels in to stabilise the vehicle.

Steering more effective than

The steering on the new generation of the Porsche has been completely upgraded and is now more sporting and dynamic. around its centre position, it is more direct.

Variable ratios and the particular set-up of the power assistance ensure agility in the new Cayenne, with the of efficiency being improved at the time: The servo pump by the combustion engine now operates on with the volume flow being masterminded as a function of conditions.

Servotronic standard on the S Hybrid and optional on all other offers steering assistance to road speed. At high the steering is firmer, at low speeds the power steering moves easily and smoothly for comfortable

Unlike the steering systems on the models, the Porsche Cayenne S comes furthermore with steering, the main difference the servo pump driven on demand.

New wheels and tyres

The new comes on newly developed in unique design measuring 18 21 inches. In developing these Porsche specialists have great attention to the reduction of in combination with attractive and unique design.

The Cayenne and Diesel now come as standard 18-inch wheels. The Cayenne S and S Hybrid likewise feature wheels, but in different design. The wheels on the Cayenne Turbo, stand out in particular through filigree five doublespoke from the start highlighting the power and performance reserves by this outstanding model.

The two wheels add a particular touch the wide range of wheels — both the elegant SportEdition wheel and the forged 911 Turbo II wheel in its design well-known form Porsche’s cars and the Panamera.

The new Porsche also comes with a new of tyres further enhanced in terms of their performance, roll resistance, wear and In the process all three fundamental have been optimised on all of the — the rubber compound, the thread, and the architecture of the tyre

Both summer and winter as well as all-season tyres are available. And finally, TPC Tyre Control comes as standard on the Turbo and is optional on all other

Elegance in a New Dimension

The design of the new Porsche Cayenne is clear and from the very beginning: more sporting, even dynamic, even more at very first sight.

The set in designing the new generation were and challenging from the start. To more space within the and enhance the level of variability, was extended by 40 millimetres or 1.6, overall length increasing by 48 At the same time the new models are 6 higher and 11 millimetres/0.43 wider.

new design gives the Porsche an even more muscular and stance on the road, the new model much more compact and despite its larger dimensions. The character of a very sporting and performer car comes out even clearly from all angles, and the and design themes so typical of are even clearer than

From the front the Cayenne is unmistakable at very first characterised by the larger centre air at the front further accentuated by two air intakes at the side. The newly air scoops underline the sporting of the new model and at the same time the superior power and performance the Cayenne has to offer.

The same look is conveyed by the wings of the car much more strongly before and rising up above the compartment lid. The greater given to the engine lid from the is also borne out by the Powerdome and the new of the lid again so typical of Porsche.

The end tapering out low down on the car serves to lower the visual centre of And last but not least, the outer air extending far to the outside give greater emphasis to the special of the Cayenne reminiscent of a sports

All new models share the new headlight with additional lights at the so unmistakably Porsche. The darker within the headlight units and the rings on the headlights create greater presence and, with the positioning lights on the air intakes, give the Porsche an even more striking of power and performance.

The exterior on the new Cayenne come in brand-new flatter than before. the mirror base positioned on the — and no longer in the mirror — the new mirrors offer benefits all in one: In their new and design, they take up the of the front end and form one unit the overall design of the car. At the time wind noise is by improved aerodynamics and visibility in bends is enhanced by an additional in the former mirror triangle.

from the front, the various clearly differ from one The V8 models and the Porsche Cayenne S are characterised by black air intakes at the as opposed to the intake louvers in body colour on the Cayenne and Diesel. The Cayenne Turbo, in stands out clearly from the models through the unique of its centre air intake and the more Powerdome.

The night design of the new is also new. Accordingly, all new in the Porsche Cayenne range now with LED daytime driving integrated as one unit in the sidelights on the upper edge of the outer air on the Cayenne, the Cayenne Diesel, the S, and the Cayenne S Hybrid. Again to a clear contrast, the Cayenne stands out clearly through its extending into the outer air as well as the four LED spots the daytime light function in the headlights.

Side view: sleek and dynamic

Seen the side, the new generation of the Porsche stands out particularly through its sleek and dynamic look. The new of the car emphasises above all the long and engine compartment lid as well as the rear roof pillar its dynamic sweep towards the of the car.

Extending far to the front, the compartment lid is reminiscent of Porsche’s cars back in the ’60s, emphasising the superior power and of the Cayenne and thus creating a link between the engine at the and the road beneath the car. In the new design line gives the new a truly sweeping, dynamic and character.

The particularly slender and the new window graphics at the rear a fast, sweeping motion the roofline to the clearly contoured and rear end of the new Porsche Cayenne, contributing to the vehicle’s compact and appearance. The design line of the extends above the rear clusters all the way to the rear end of the car. new in their design and featuring LED the rear light clusters now further to the front and, their tapered design, the sheer length of the car.

The graphics make a decisive to the new look of the Cayenne, the windows in their shape the elegant all the way from the A-pillar to the D-pillar sweeping out at the rear.

The clearly wings and doors, in turn, even greater emphasis to the arches. And last but not least, a model designation in chrome at the side on the front wings the Cayenne Diesel and the Cayenne S

Rear view: powerful and broad shoulders

The rear-end of the new Porsche Cayenne now also even more clearly these are fully-fledged members of the family. This is ensured by the tapering out at a lower angle at the the consistent implementation of emotional with round design reminiscent of Porsche’s sports and horizontal styling elements as the chrome trim bar at the transition from the tailgate to the rear

The clearly contoured rear emphasise the car’s proximity to the also at the rear, again the new Cayenne a powerful stance on its The wings flow further to the rear, enhancing the typical effect so characteristic of every Positioned far to the outside at the rear, the light clusters take up the joint from the side, this sweeping line the tailgate into the roof

The newly designed tailpipes the rear end of the car in visual terms two rectangular single tailpipes on the the Cayenne Diesel, the Cayenne S, and the S Hybrid, while the Cayenne comes with two round tailpipes.

In addition to their designation, all new versions of the Porsche come with Porsche’s new colour brand name the numberplate.

Light weight at its the bodyshell

Developing and building the new of the Cayenne, Porsche’s engineers taken a big step in lightweight Although the new generation is longer and more stable than the weight of the body-in-white is down the body of the new Cayenne losing no than 111 kilos or 245 lb in weight and making the largest single to the significant reduction of weight on the new The doors, engine compartment and lid alone are 39 kilos or 86 lb lighter before. And last but not least, the made of aluminium also to reduce the car’s weight.

the higher standard of safety by the new model, both driving and fuel economy have improved consistently. The driver and in the new Porsche Cayenne are protected by and front passenger airbags, airbags and, on the front side airbags in the event of an — naturally with all features coming as standard. And to the final touch, side are also available at the rear as an

Consistent development of lightweight construction by Porsche once plays a key role on the new Cayenne, even greater stiffness on the former model.

In the event of a the forces acting on the car are spread out in a process on the longitudinal and crossbar at the front and rear, multi-phase ensuring a high standard of clear deformability and optimum of energy. At the same time made of ultra-high-strength heat-moulded protect the occupants in a collision the side, surrounding the passenger like a cage and therefore, their extreme stability, a decisive contribution in retaining the of the passenger cell and maintaining the level of occupant safety.

The of safety has also been once again on the roof through the use of heat-moulded steel.

All doors are pressed lightweight structures with extra-strong, integrated steel profiles side impact protection. As a of the car’s constructive lightweight the rear lid, thanks to the use of is more than 50 per cent than on the previous model . A advantage of this lower is greater ease in opening and the lid, which now requires a minimum effort.

All models in the range come as an option an automatic tailgate. Apart the reduction of weight, great was given in developing this new to the improvement of the opening process, is now smoother and more consistent ever before. The new system electrical spindle drive on sides supported by a coil

All models in the range come as standard tinted sun insulating glass all a grey stripe in the windscreen and coated door side at the front. These windows with a coating based on ensuring that the windows be far less contaminated in rain and in the interest of better visibility.

A windscreen is available on all new models in the Cayenne range for the first Available in combination with all options, the windscreen will not over and will quickly in winter even under conditions.

Sliding or Panorama as an option

An electrical sliding/vent made of glass or a Panorama system are both available as on the new Cayenne. With its glass of 0.39 square metres or 4.2 feet, the electrical sliding/vent is made of tinted single-layer glass with a manual lining and comfort closing. The sliding/vent roof is controlled by of a switch on the roof console.

available at extra cost, the roof system, measuring 1.4 square metres or 15.1 feet, is almost four the size of the sliding/vent roof, its glass area extending all the way the rear seats.

The Panorama is made up of two glass elements with a wind deflector, the front element moving over the rear unit.

To the same level of headroom the interior, all elements crucial to the available, such as the guide and the drive, motor have optimised also for minimum At the same time the new structure a reduction in weight by more 13 kg or 29 lb compared with the former

Even when closed the roof provides a wonderful view thanks to its transparent 30 per cent larger than on the model, giving the occupants a feeling of space and roominess. opened the roof creates an opening of more than one metre and, as a result, a feeling of space and grace on the

The roof provides the foundation for the roof system available as an option on all of the Cayenne. Maximum roofload on the new is 100 kg or 220 lb.

All models in the Porsche Cayenne are prepared for fitting a trailer as subsequent equipment. As an option the Cayenne Diesel, Cayenne S, and Turbo come with a complete with a removable head. Maximum towing is 3.5 tonnes, with a maximum on the Cayenne with manual of 2.7 tonnes.

An electrically retracting is also available as an option, in case the user is able to the ball head on the towbar in and out at the touch of a button. When up, the electrically retractable towbar completely beneath the rear end of the

The button for folding the towbar in and out is in the right side panel of the compartment.

The Cayenne S Hybrid is exclusively with the electrically towbar.

Intelligent headlights: Dynamic Light System

The Dynamic Light System is a further development of the xenon system used so far. It both dynamic and static lights as well as — for the time in the Cayenne — headlight control with modes for country roads, for the and for bad weather.

Compared with the setting on the low-beam headlights, the road mode offers a range on the left-hand side and a light beam, which accordingly at higher speeds, further to the front and improving the visibility without dazzling traffic.

The Autobahn light is activated as of 130 km/h or 80 mph, headlight range accordingly. The weather light mode, is activated as soon as the driver on the foglamps and reduces any self-dazzling under difficult conditions as fog or snowfall.

To provide this the low-beam headlights are spread out a broader footprint and the left adjusts the light/dark border to reduce the range of the light A further feature is that the headlight swivels to the left in to reduce any self-dazzling effect.

The bad light function is available up to a of 70 km/h or 43 mph.

PDLS is up of a swivelling PDLS module for the bending lights and headlight control, using a projection to provide the functions required. The as such comprises a rotating with various contours the light/shade limit as well as a Using the roller and changing intensity, the bi-xenon headlights are to provide the various light required.

PDLS is supplemented by bend lights. In combination the normal xenon high already providing particularly illumination in front of the car through the position of the roller with the fully open and with an in light inten sity for effective illumination, PDLS adds the halogen high-beam function.

Over and above all features, all models in the Porsche range come in addition LED direction indicators and LED positioning at the front. With the exception of the Turbo, the front lights offer the daytime light in LED technology. On the Cayenne Turbo the driving lights each four LED spots in the main while the positioning lights are around the direction indicators.

New in its and configuration, the interior with its architecture clearly reflects the to combine greater flexibility enhanced everyday driving Functionality, ergonomics and superior for up to five occupants were the points from the start in the interior.

A particular eye-catcher is the console rising up to the front its protruding switches and buttons the interior the character of a genuine

Through their seating and the new, exciting design of the console and the instrument panel, the passengers are integrated even into the car, enjoying an more sporting feeling on seats. A striking design on the Cayenne is the typical, re-styled handles on the centre console now to be on all four doors. The buttons for the functions of the car are positioned in sensible to the left and right of the gearshift or lever, allowing fast and control without having to a long time looking for functions in complicated sub-menus.

superior convenience and ease of is supported by the large seven-inch TFT positioned in the middle of the centre

The dashboard as well as the instrument come in brand-new design expressing that DNA so typical of a for example through five dials and the rev counter positioned in the middle.

Even in standard the Cayenne, Cayenne Diesel, S, and Cayenne S Hybrid meet the demands within the interior. The new structure around the dashboard and the for example, clearly upgrades the in its qualities and appeal.

To ensure a touch and sophisticated looks, surfaces within the Cayenne as standard in tanned leather. The range of interior options, in allows the customer to create his or her Cayenne according to his individual Leather upholstery in the same of the car featuring a smooth surface is on the Cayenne Turbo and comes as an on all other models.

Choosing leather upholstery in twin-tone the customer will receive leather in two contrasting colours a sporting and elegant ambience to the detail.

Leather upholstery in leather comes with the features and surface coverage as upholstery in regular body but uses carefully tanned in contrast to the regular smooth finish. Thanks to the specific process applied, the leather its original grain and natural at the same time giving the a particular ambience.

Leather in natural leather is also with a twin-tone finish and creased leather comes as yet a option.

All versions of the Porsche come as standard with a steering wheel two centimetres in diameter than on the former On all steering wheels the grab are finished in smooth leather in the colour of the car.

A three-spoke steering wheel complete gearshift paddles and a three-spoke steering wheel are both as an option, as is special heating of the wheel already provided as an in the past.

New seats with a rear seat bench

The have been completely for the new Cayenne, offering all passengers comfort and a lot more space at the thanks to the wheelbase extended by 40 or almost 1.6.

The Porsche comes with five two single seats at the front and a seat bench with seats. The headrests are individually both at the front and on the two outer at the rear.

The rear seat may now fold down separately in a 40. 20. 40 while the rear seat as such is 40. 60 and may be moved to-and-fro 160 or 6.3. The angle of the rear backrests, in turn, can be adjusted in stages by up to 6.

The comfort seats at the with electrical eight-way featured as standard on the Cayenne, the Diesel, the Cayenne S, and the Cayenne S offer a wide range of options for seat height and backrest angle and the fore-and-aft of the seats. The seats are extremely offering not only good support, but also, through wide range of adjustment, body fit as well as grandtouring truly excellent under all

With such as adjustable air cushions in the supports with individual and adjustment, the Adaptive Sports adjust precisely to the driver’s contours, thus offering side support even very sporting and dynamic

The manually adjustable rear bench significantly enhances the driving qualities of the new Porsche Adjusting up to 160 millimetres/6.3 fore-and-aft, the seat bench also as standard with a through-loading provided by the separately folding backrest.

Without requiring the to remove the headrests, the backrests on the seats may also be folded separately.

Backrest adjustment three separate settings provides an even higher of comfort. Proceeding from the setting, the backrests may be set either 3 or 3 lower separately of one another.

and cooling: seat climate

Seat heating is available on the seats as an option, for the first as a separate feature without wheel heating on the new Cayenne.

The heating system warms up not the centre sections on the seat and the backrest, but also the side

Seat heating for the rear is likewise available as an option, both features (seat front and rear) coming as on the Cayenne Turbo. In each the heating system operates in stages and is adjustable individually by of switches on the centre console and rear.

Seat heating in the seats may be further enhanced by ventilation as an additional option. active ventilation of the perforated and backrest centrepieces creates an air effect drawing in perspiration then transported out of the seats by arranged air ducts.

Again, ventilation is individually adjustable in separate stages.

Enhanced of instruments and extra features on the Cayenne S Hybrid

Over and the wide range of instruments featured in the past, the new Cayenne with a 4.8-inch high-resolution TFT Display in the instrument cluster, in the second tube from the To control the Display, the driver either the righthand lever on the column or the right-hand rotating on the optional multifunction steering

The TFT Colour Display is able to a wide range of information on the settings, the audio system, the navigation unit, map presentation, information, tyre pressure and information on the cruise control.

The cluster in the Porsche Cayenne S differs from that in the models through a number of features underlining the unique of this very special and offering the driver an experience of the hybrid drive system through the instruments in the car. The tube features a Ready in addition to the rev counter showing the when turning the key in the lock the hybrid drive unit is in a to drive the car under electric alone. The E-Power Meter in the tube is an analogue power and display informing the driver in time of the current power of the electric motor.

The Power shows the power required for the car on electric power alone and both drive units together in the boosting mode. The display, finally, presents the of the electric motor acting as a in the recuperation phase (Brake Regeneration).

The TFT Display in the instrument presents the interaction of the two drive as well as the current status of drive for the driver’s information. The of energy is also shown in real time by a coloured symbol indicating the respective of flow, giving the driver on current driving conditions. The status of the traction battery is presented as additional information.

as an option, PCM Porsche Communication presents all hybrid-specific driving in a detailed graphic image of the naturally in real time. animated graphic informs the of the current operating status of the drive system by presenting the of energy between the various drive components and the charge of the traction battery. This visualisation informs the driver of his style of driving and allows him to a specific driving pattern in the of greater fuel economy.
