2023 Porsche Cayenne Teased Before its Global debut On April 18
Prior to its debut at the Shanghai auto show on April 18, Porsche has teased the look of the 2018 Cayenne SUV. In 2018, the third-generation Cayenne was introduced in India, and this year, a facelifted version is anticipated.
A more angular headlamp design and a daytime running light signature with a single LED bar in place of the old split design are also shown in the new image. The grille has gotten bigger and has a less rounded, more aggressive design.
The 2023 Porsche Cayenne interior, which draws design cues from the Taycan EV and places a stronger emphasis on driver interaction, has previously been unveiled by the German automaker.
The Cayenne’s new dashboard is dominated by a full-width digital panel comprised of three screens: a 12.6-inch curved instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch central infotainment screen, and – new for 2023 – an optional touchscreen in front of the passenger. This full-width digital panel is intended to provide a “even more intense driving experience” while facilitating interaction – both with the car and the front-seat passenger.
The passenger can “take the strain off the driver” thanks to this new 10.9-inch interface, which gives them access to the media and navigation options. Because of cutting-edge technology, it is unseen to the driver, reducing on-the-road distraction.
The Taycan is the inspiration for the new-generation steering wheel, dash-mounted drive selector, and revised center console. The ‘free-standing’ digital instrument display, which offers up to seven perspectives, has a five-dial layout evocative of the 911. Porsche’s strategy to strike “the right balance between digital and analog elements” includes all of this.
A new cooled wireless smartphone charging pad, Siri voice control, four USB-C fast charging ports, and a new video streaming service that plays movies on the central display when the car is still and on the passenger screen, when it is moving, have all been added to the Cayenne’s technological capabilities.
The plug-in hybrid versions of the Cayenne facelift will receive a new gearbox-mounted electric motor that will generate 176 horsepower when coupled to a slightly tuned, 304 horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine. However, the overall output will be 470 horsepower and 650 Nm. The e-Hybrid models’ batteries will have a capacity increase to 25.9 kWh, enable charging speeds of up to 11 kW, and have an electric-only range of up to 80 km.
The company claims that the new Cayenne is “one of the most extensive product upgrades in the history of Porsche” and has already been put through its paces in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America, clocking up more than four million test miles in prototype form.
Before making a debut in Shanghai, Porsche engineers tested the SUV’s innovative semi-active chassis in harsh mountain terrain, the desert, and the snow. Over 2,000km of testing was done on highways, country roads, and in city traffic.
With the intention of “achieving an even wider range between the typical Porsche on-road performance, long-distance comfort, and off-road capability,” Porsche claimed it has been testing the Cayenne as though it had been “developed from scratch.”
In India, the Cayenne was Porsche’s best-selling model in 2022, selling 399 units. A few months after its global introduction, the updated Cayenne is anticipated to make its Indian debut. When it is released, the Cayenne facelift will compete with vehicles like the Range Rover Sport, Mercedes-Benz GLE, and BMW X5.
