Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) has previewed the new third-generation Porsche Cayenne in Malaysia today. The new Cayenne promises to be more Porsche and more Cayenne than ever. It will not only continue its excellent balance of performance and practicality, but expands on a wider range of standard equipment as well.
The new Cayenne is now up to 65 kilograms lighter thanks to its intelligent lightweight construction. The car remains perfectly suitable for off-road usage despite its shift on focus on performance and comfort. It houses a more powerful turbo engine, new eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox, and new chassis. The innovative Porsche Advanced Cockpit display and control concept allows total connectivity that takes both sportiness and comfort to the next level.
“The Cayenne has also been digitalised and networked to provide another level of digital connectivity to the cockpit. This is how the Cayenne makes the Porsche experience even more fascinating but remains as a genuine sports car for five,” said Arnt Bayer CEO of Sime Darby Auto Performance.
Available in two variants, the Cayenne has a three-litre turbo engine that gives an output of 340 hp, or 40 hp more than the previous model. The Cayenne S on the other hand is capable of speeds of up to 265 km/h, the 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine produces a menacing 440 hp. Also, equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new Cayenne S does a century sprint in less than five seconds.
Modelled heavily on the iconic 911 sports car, the Cayenne SUV features mixed tyres and rear-axle steering for the very first time. In turn, its on-road capabilities is improved by the active all-wheel drive as standard, Porsche 4D Chassis Control, three-chamber air suspension, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) electronic roll stabilisation system, and the newly developed high-performance Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB).
The new Cayenne is now available for pre-order. Those interested can visit Porsche’s Centre Glenmarie, Sungai Besi or Penang.
