2018 Porsche Cayenne is getting launched in India very soon. We say this because Porsche dealers across the country are accepting bookings for it. When will the Porsche Cayenne actually launch, we don’t know. But It could happen within a month. The new Cayenne will share MQB platform with the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, Audi Q7 and VW Touareg. The new Cayenne is said to be around 65 kg lighter than its predecessor.
Initially, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne will be offered in two trims- Cayenne and Cayenne S. The standard version will get a 3.0-litre V6 engine churning out 340PS power and 450 Nm of torque. The Cayenne S, on the other hand, gets a 2.9-litre turbocharged engine that is good for 440PS of power and 550 Nm of torque. Talking about performance numbers, the standard Cayenne reaches 100 kph in 6.2 seconds while Cayenne S does the same in 5.2 seconds. In both the trims, the engine is mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic gearbox. >Know which automatic gearbox is the best<
The interiors of the new Porsche Cayenne have been completely updated and won’t feel outdated for many more years. It combines analogue gauges with digital readouts, carrying over the rich history of Porsche into their future models. Like the Panamera, there is a 12.3-inch Advance Cockpit concept touchscreen.
Like the Lamborghini Urus, the new Porsche Cayenne also features rear-wheel steering. It gets five programmable driving modes and chassis modes. Accompanying this is the adaptive air suspension technology. All this makes the new Cayenne highly adaptable to any kind of driving terrain and to the driver’s liking.
When launched in India, the pricing is can be expected to hover around Rs 1.2 crore. And it will compete with cars like Lexus RX, BMW X6, Land Rover Range Rover, and Mercedes GLE.
