The new top-of-the-line variant also brings new styling, elevating the sportiness on the outside and plushness on the inside. That said, read on to see what are the changes Filipino car buyers can benefit from with the record-setting Porsche Cayenne.

Exterior

Right off the bat, the 22-inch GT design wheels wrapped in satin neodyme finish set the Turbo GT apart from the rest of the range. Performance tires go along with the wheels to make sure that the enhancement on the drivetrain translates well on the road. The SUV gets a lower ride height to match, delivering stability and a sportier appearance.

The cabin is equipped with 18-inch adaptive sport seats for the front passengers, a sport rear seat system, and a multifunction sports steering wheel with a top center marking in racing yellow.
