When you think about the standard SUV you think of anything but luxury
. However that was before the introduction on the Porsche Cayenne
. The Cayenne is a mid size five seater SUV from the manufacturer of some of the very best luxury
sports cars in the world.
Manufacture of the Porsche Cayenne
began in 2002 and still continues today. It was the first V8 engine vehicle to come from Porsche since 1995 following the discontinuation of the 928. From 2008 onwards the engines have been designed with direct injection technology. The Cayenne now in its second generation was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in February of 2010.
The design of the Porsche Cayenne
relies on the doors and the framework of Volkswagen while all other parts of the vehicle design and production are done at the home of Porsche.
The second generation Cayenne is a little shorter than the original design with muscular curves and a more sloping roof with door mounted mirrors. The headlights were inspired by the Carrera GT and the interior has been totally redesigned with the focus being on luxury
. While the height of the vehicle has been reduced this does not detract from the off road capabilities of the vehicle. As you might expect from a luxury
SUV the Cayenne comes with air conditioning with climate control, cruise control and some of the very best
leather seats. The Porsche Cayenne
Turbo is one of the very best
in the range of Cayennes. The model delivers faster acceleration, with lower fuel consumption and excellent
engineering. As with every Porsche the interior is designed around luxury
to the very best
of standards, comfort and quality, above all it is designed around the driver. One very striking feature of the Cayenne is the centre console that rises up to meet the dashboard enhancing the interior of the SUV. The engine lid hides one of the finest
engines of Porsche and this is evident even more in the Turbo version. One thing that stands out on the Cayenne Turbo is the sharp profile that oozes eagerness. The wheel arches on the rear wheels make the SUV stand out as a sports car rather than an SUV, they are muscular and streamlined and the spoiler which is contoured is similar to that seen on the Carrera GT.
vehicle from Porsche comes with comfort and the Cayenne is no exception. The interior is home to the Burmester high end surround sound system and the Porsche Communication Management, otherwise known as the PCM. This is a central console system that provides the driver with all the information and communication features that you could want in an SUV.
