Porsche Cayenne 2: greener but fiercely Porsche
In 2003, when Porsche publicly announced its intention to market a 4x4, it was a revolution, shock or even a betrayal for those who love the brand. Since they have had more bad surprises with the arrival of a diesel engine and a 4-door sedan. But it must be to face the facts with 280,000 copies sold worldwide Cayenne, the 4x4 Stuttgart is a resounding success. Now it was time to replace it. This has now changed.
Porsche even more style
When we discover the new Cayenne, one comes inevitably to comparisons with the first generation. We believe the whole is much smoother, less 4x4, which is good news. We thus find a front panel that shares many points of resemblance with the Panamera, but the main change relates to the profile. Indeed, the second generation Cayenne grew 5 cm in length and several millimeters in height, but it seems that the opposite because of the reduction in the height of the windows which greatly boosts the line. Most observers have also noted the new shape of the rear quarter window is now similar to that of the Panamera. Another curiosity: the greater width, but it actually decreases when you take into account the mirrors because of their shape and their location different. However, over the back ready for discussion since some people find that the new Cayenne is similar in some ways a model from Hyundai.
More pronounced changes in the cabin. When one takes place, there is immediately a new instrument cluster to 5 meters with tachometer in the center that breaks with the instrumentation of the first Cayenne, The dashboard is based largely on the Panamera again with a center console large enough to resume the operating mode of a button, a feature that we believe is an example in terms of ergonomics, although the number of buttons may seem important at first. The upper part is devoted to navigation and radio, central air conditioning and lower in all aspects of the car settings such as suspensions, etc.. No complaints about the presentation and quality of materials that are in a very good level.
If the front passengers will be pampered with including electric seats, the rear occupants can travel with peace of mind with excellent livability due in part to the adoption of a sliding rear seat of 16cm which allows passengers to choose priority or volume Loading progressing on that occasion 130 liters in 5-seater to 670 liters.
No surprises on the equipment that is very comprehensive. It is always possible to draw the list of options where you can find for example the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control 3 for € 229.20, € 8073 for the ceramic brakes, € 657.80 for assisting blind and 4772, € 04 for the sound system Burmester. This new version of the Cayenne also brings new colors whether in paint or interior: 8 for the interior and the same number for the outside including some very special as the Yellow Sand, the Amethyst Metallic or Jet Green Metallic.
