The 3rd-gen Porsche Cayenne 2018 will be offered with 2 variants in Malaysia.

Fine months after making its global debut in August 2017, the all-new Porsche Cayenne 2018 finally arrived in Malaysia.

The third-generation Cayenne is offered with two variants, namely the base Cayenne and the Cayenne S. Beginning with the former, the vehicle features a 3.0L V6 turbo engine which is capable of producing 340 hp from 5300 to 6400 rpm as well as 450 Nm of torque from 1340 to 5300 rpm. Meanwhile, the latter is equipped with a 2.9L V6 twin-turbo engine which is claimed to make 550Nm from 1800 to 5500 and 440 hp from 5700 to 6600 rpm.

Both variants come mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic S and an active all-wheel drive (AWD) system. According to Porsche, while the base Cayenne can sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 6.2s, the S variant does so in only 5.2s. With the support from the optional Sport Chrono Package, these figures can be decreased by 0.3s. What’s more, max speeds of the base and top-spec Cayenne are said to be 245 km/h and 265 km/h, respectively.

Designed with a whole new aluminium body, the third-gen Cayenne is now lighter than the current offering by up to 65 kg while still strengthend in power thanks to an addition of 40 hp. Furthermore, Porsche has given some components of the chassis such as the front section and the floorpan assembly with new high-quality material of lightweight alloys. The new Cayenne is also said to ride on the same Volkswagen's MLB Evo platform found in the Bentley Bentayga and the Audi Q7.

The brand new Porsche Cayenne 2018 is introduced to perform more gracefully in corners with the help of advanced features such as:

  • 4D Chassis Control;
  • PDCC Sport (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport);
  • Active roll stabilisation system;
  • Rear-axle steering;
  • Pptional PSCB (Porsche Surface Coated Brake);
  • 3-chamber air suspension.

The brand new car still maintains its familiar body with the unchanged wheelbase, yet has been made slightly wider, shorter and longer than its predecessor. The front fascia also involves a new lower wider intake and LED headlights. Moving on to the rear, the layout of the tail lamps is one of most noticeable cues that are borrowed from the newest Panamera. 

Step inside, the new cabin looks quite similar to that of the Panamera, from the centre stack, centre console to the dashboard design. The centre stack and console feature 12.3-inch full-HD touchscreen for the enhanced PCM (Porsche Communication Management) and touch-sensitive controls. The instrument cluster comes with an analog tachometer located between two 7-inch displays which can be utilized to display vaious information by pressing the buttons on the 3 spoke-steering wheel.
