A NEW Cayenne platinum Edition is being offered by Porsche with special editions of the Cayenne Diesel and S E-Hybrid boasting enhanced features and attractive pricing.
A myriad of delightful tweaks are on display which are sure to captivate even the most illustrious of buyers.
Impressive 20-inch wheels in RS Snyder design are provided with much larger and wider arches, while the interior now features leather sport seats with an electric adjustment with eight settings.
Comfort and safety are well taken care of with automatic anti-glare on the exterior and rear-view mirrors. A Park Assist feature graphically shows drivers their immediate surroundings, while back-seat passengers are afforded a relieving privacy through dark tinted glass windows.
Online navigation is incorporated into the latest generation Porsche Communication System, while a state-of-the-art BOSE surround sound system makes the car a universe unto itself.
Additional features include bi-xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System, heated front seats, Power Steering Plus, Connect Plus and GTS sports seats and Alcantara seat centres. There is ‘Platinum Edition’ lettering for both models, with the letters being luxuriously illuminated for the Hybrid model. Finishes are a non-metallic black or white, with optional deep black, mahogany, carrera white, Purpurite, and rhodium silver metallic paints.
On to the important matters of power and torque, the three-litre V6 engine in the Cayenne Diesel consumes around 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres, depending on the tyres, and has an impressive output of 193 kW (262 hp).
The combined power of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid results in a spectacular output of 306 kW (416 hp) courtesy of the fluid interaction between the three-litre V6 petrol engine and the electric motor.
With a consumption of 3.3-3.4 litres per 100 kilometres the Cayenne S E-Hybrid does command a heftier asking price than the Diesel at €90,298 compared to €74,352. Naturally prices will differ across national markets.
Porsche is taking orders now, with the deliveries to commence from late August.
