The significant reduction of fuel consumption throughout the entire Cayenne model range comes, among other things, from the introduction of the new Tiptronic S eight-speed automatic transmission with Auto Start Stop and an extra-wide spread of gear ratios. Other factors are thermal management and recuperation of the on-board network as well as, not least, a significant reduction of weight thanks to intelligent lightweight engineering.
The Cayenne is powered by a 300 hp (220 kW) 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine combined in standard trim with a six-speed manual gearbox. This accelerates the Cayenne from a standstill to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds (Tiptronic S: 7.8 seconds) and provides a top speed of 230 km/h or 143 mph.
The three-litre V6 power unit in the Cayenne Diesel delivers maximum output of 240 hp (176 kW), accelerating the car from a standstill to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds. Top speed is 218 km/h or 135 mph. The Cayenne Diesel comes as standard with eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission featuring an Auto Start Stop function.
Both the Cayenne and the Cayenne Diesel now also come as standard on 18-inch wheels. New driver assistance systems such as a Lane Change Assistant and Adaptive Cruise Control are available as an option, just like the PDLS Porsche Dynamic Light System for variable management of the headlights in accordance with current requirements as well as the Burmester High-End Surround Sound System with 16 channels and 1,000 Watt maximum output.
Built to national specifications, the Cayenne sells in Germany at a price of Euro 55,431 including 19 per cent value-added tax, the Cayenne Diesel comes at a price of Euro 59,596 (again with VAT).Porsche announces Cayenne GTS
