Local pricing for Porsche’s refreshed Cayenne range has been revealed today, ahead of its October premiere in Paris and a November launch for Australia.
Australia’s dance card will initially include the Cayenne Diesel, the petrol and diesel S models, the new S E-Hybrid variant and the flagship Turbo model.
Pricing is up slightly on almost all models, although the S E-Hybrid is now over $10,000 more affordable than its Hybrid predecessor.
The range kicks off with the $104,700 Cayenne Diesel, powered by a a 193kW/580Nm 3.0 litre turbo V6, listing fuel use at 6.6 to 6.8 l/100km.
The diesel claims a 0-100km/h time of 7.3 seconds (7.2 with Sport Chrono). Top speed is 221km/h.
The diesel’s local specifications are boosted by the addition of bi-xenon headlights, 19-inch wheels, tyre pressure monitor, and auto dimming mirrors inside and out.
Next in line is the $139,900 S petrol and the $143,200 S Diesel.
The petrol S is powered by a new 309kW/550Nm 3.6 litre twin-turbo V6, marking a 15kW and 50Nm increase over the 4.8 litre V8 that it replaces.
The turbo six is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic S auto, and Porsche claims a 0-100km/h time of 5.5 seconds - around 0.4 seconds quicker than the outgoing V8. That drops to 5.4 with Sport Chrono package.
More than a match for its petrol twin, the S Diesel gets a 283kW/850Nm 4.2 litre V8, claiming fuel figures of 8.0 l/100km and a 0-100km/h time of 5.3 seconds.
The local S models boost the global specification by adding 20-inch wheels, metallic paint, an electric sun roof, Porsche Dynamic Light System and heated front seats.
Nearing the top-end, we find the Cayenne S E-Hybrid, powered by a 245kW 3.0 litre supercharged V6 mated to a 70kW electric motor.
Porsche claims a combined 306kW and 590Nm (from 1250-4000rpm) of torque for the E-Hybrid.
All of this comes together to deliver a 0-100km/h sprint time of 5.9 seconds, with fuel consumption pegged at a remarkable 3.4 l/100km.
Top speed is listed at 243km/h, although the E-Hybrid can also cruise in all-electric mode at speeds up to 125km/h.
Rounding out the range is the flagship Cayenne Turbo, which retains its twin-turbo 4.8 litre V8.
Power in the Turbo model is boosted 14kW to 382kW and 50Nm to 750Nm for the new model year.
The Turbo model’s 0-100km/h time is listed at a sharp 4.5 seconds (4.4 with Sport Chrono), and top speed is 279km/h.
Fuel use is listed at 11.2 to 11.5 l/100km.
Features for the Turbo model are boosted by 20-inch ‘RS Spyder’ wheels, integrated wheel arch extensions and LED headlights.
