Porsche Cayenne S Review
Great Expectations

31 Aug 2018

squint a little and you can still see its 911-aping form

Comfortable, balanced, badass…

The third generation Porsche Cayenne makes even the average driver a pretty decent one. That is something we learnt.

The new car utilises the Volkswagen-Audi MLB platform, which is shared with Audi’s Q7, the soon to be release Q8, and the more expensive Bentley Bentayga and Lamborghini Urus SUVs. While the new Cayenne is a little longer than the car it replaces by 63mm, it retains the same 2,895mm wheelbase.

And true to the brand, while the new car does have an even more muscular stance, squint a little and you can still see its 911-aping form. The large SUV body though, is a very functional one. Longer and wider than its predecessor, the new car actually weighs about 60kg less.

With the new car, there are some very notable styling changes, like their new three-dimensional headlight modules, which are similar to those seen on the Panamera we tested a while ago, while a new tail lamp cluster which spans across the boot lid, and incorporates the brand name into the design, also apes its sedan sibling.
