The presentation of a new generation of a comfortable SUV took place inAugust 2017. As before, Porsche Cayenne in 2018, a new model (photo, price) isa representative of the expensive class. It is assumed that the model will goon sale at a price of 75,000 euros. In comparison with its predecessor, thenovelty has a relatively small amount of change from the outside, most of theimprovements have come to the salon. Consider the features of this propositionindetails.
The new Porsche crossover is already available for order in Europe. It
may seem that we have another facelift, but this is not so. The novelty
received a new platform, but retained the common features of the previous
generation, so beloved by buyers. The basis of the Porsche Cayenne 2018-2019
lay a shortened version of the modular platform MLB Evo with a two-link
suspension in the front and multi-link rear. Already in the base of the SUV are
three-chamber pneumatic stands, adaptive shock absorbers PASM (for version S)
and the all-wheel drive system with a multi-disk coupling of the front axle and
four modes of operation: Mud, Gravel, Sand and Rocks.
The appearance of the new crossover will remain almost unchanged. Hismain qualities are the following:
Head optics can vary significantly, depending on thespecific equipment.Significantly changed the design of the rear lamps. Nowit has become narrower. The car has an active spoiler, which can take a certainposition in the automatic mode. Due to it, the clamping force shouldsignificantly increase. According to the automaker, the design takes intoaccount the speed and angle of entry into the turn, and when braking it reducesthe stopping distance.
The most expensive version of the crossover is a matrixversion of the head optics design, which has 84 active elements.
In the rest, Porsche left his recognizable exterior. At the same time, whencreating turn indicators and tail lights, they tried to make them less bright,supposedly darkening, which creates the impression of tuning.
In front of the Porsche Cayenne 2018 in the new body received a larger
grille with side air intakes of one height with it and crossing them with two
horizontal slats. Revision also underwent head optics, which became a more
embossed hood and trimmed bumper. The most difficult to recognize the novelty
in the profile – on the side the changes seem minimal, but in fact the
manufacturer slightly wound the apertures of the rear doors, and also extended
the rear overhang. But the Cayenne feed of the 3rd Generation immediately gives
itself out as new narrow lanterns with diode bridges between them all the way
The installed audio system has a high quality and powerof 710 watts. The design of the seats can boast not only heating,massage and ventilation in an expensive version, but also an 18-bandadjustment, which is rare today.
As before, most of the controls are located on the central torpedo. The centerconsole is represented only by a solid quality display. At furnish the mostvarious materials can be used, but here a tree or the ground metal is enough alittle. Despite the high prestige of this model, the engineers envisaged thepossibility of carrying a bulky cargo, for which the second row of seats can befolded. The third row of seats in the base configuration will not be, as forthe optional option, it is still unknown about its availability or absence.
Most of all changes concerned the vehicle interior. The rather outdateddesign has changed significantly, while using more modern systems andtechnologies. When considering the salon, there are several interesting points:
The instrument panel is represented by a combination ofa classical tachometer with two 7-inch high-resolution displays on each side. The installed multimedia system has a 12.3-inchdisplay. Representatives of the automaker point to awell-developed control system for voice commands. Now many functions can beused without touching the control units.
At the center console housed a large 12.3-inch touchscreen multimediasystem, and most physical buttons with a torpedo gave way to touch analogues.Here, only the curtains of the ventilation system here are regulated manually,and not with the help of servos. The new instrument panel is an analogtachometer in the center and two 7.0-inch screens on the sides of it, allowingthe driver to independently adjust the readings displayed on them. In the car,there were also other steering wheel and gearbox selector, and the quality offinishing materials was improved.
The basic equipment includes: LED lighting head and side lights; interior trimmade of genuine leather; seats in the first row have electric heating andheight adjustment; security system with 8 pillows; multimedia system with awide display format and volumetric parameters of the functional; climate -control of several modes; analog tachometer. Also available for the surchargeare the following options: LED lighting with a matrix structure; option to seethe road surface at night; modes of heating of seats; The ventilation of theseats in both rows; panoramic inspection from the hatch; audio system modelBose and Burmester; cruise control brand InnoDrive.
Engineers of the automaker in question seriously revised the installedengine range, removing obsolete and already inefficient designs. It is plannedthat the installation of three motors will be carried out, for eachconfiguration of its own. They are as follows:
The turbocharged petrol V6 design is installed in thebase. The volume is 3 liters, due to which the design is able to produce 340hp. Installed and 2.9-liter power unit, which due tosignificant modernization can develop 440 hp. It is worth considering that,paired with a new automatic, an SUV with this engine can develop 100 km / h in4.9 seconds – a very impressive result. The most expensive offer is presented by the petrolengine V8, which at 4 liters develops 550 hp. Such a high power factor isachieved by turbocharging the structure.
Together with all power units, a modernized 8-automatic transmission must beinstalled.
The new Porsche Cayenne 2018 (photo, trim price) will be supplied with airsuspension. Due to this, the crossover will become softer, the function ofadjusting the ride height will appear. The very design of the suspension willbe represented by a three-chamber system, due to which the road clearanceindicator can vary. The driver will be given the opportunity to choose one ofthe 6 positions in manual mode or set the adjustment to automatic mode. Inaddition, you can set the following values:
Rigidity. Degree of stabilization. Bank.
At the heart of the new generation is the MLB platform, which alsoincludes the installation of adaptive shock absorbers. The all-wheel drive iscapable of operating in several modes due to the installation of an electricclutch. The dimensions of the body will be as follows:
The length is 4918 mm. The base remained unchanged at 2895 mm. The width increased to 1983 mm.
To reduce fuel consumption and increase the speed of acceleration, the weightof the body structure was reduced due to the use of carbon and high-qualitysteel. In addition, high-quality steel has a favorable effect on the stiffnessindex.
Initially, only two turbocharged V6 will be available – a 3.0-liter
340-hp and a 2.9-liter 440-hp. The more powerful Porsche Cayenne S accelerates
to hundreds in 5.2 s and develops 265 km / h. Later there will be a Cayenne
Turbo with a 4.0-liter V8 at 550 liters. from. and versions with turbodiesels
in volume of 3,0 l (272 hp) and 4,0 l (420 hp). In the plans – and a 462-strong
rechargeable hybrid Porsche Cayenne.
While the exact prices and complete sets, no one indicates. It isexpected that in Europe the car will be available in the following options:
The basic version, the cost of which is about 75,000euros. The version called Sport for 91,000 euros. Top version of Turbo for 138,000 euros.
Even in the initial configuration of the Porsche Cayenne 2018 will have a veryattractive equipment:
All kinds of sensors for automating the operation ofbasic systems. A huge number of electronic assistance systems indriving a vehicle. In order to ensure effective braking of the vehicle,the brake pads are made of tungsten carbide. Such a material has an increasedhardness and can not be abraded. Already in the basic configuration there is a rear-viewcamera. It allows you to significantly simplify the process of reversing. The car can help the driver with parking thanks to theinstalled sensors along the perimeter of the body. In addition, cameras areinstalled that allow monitoring of blind areas. Until quite recently a fairly comfortable car has arelatively inefficient navigation system, which did not work well in Russia.According to the automaker, this problem was solved. In addition, you canconnect the mobile device and synchronize it with the on-board computer of thevehicle.
For an additional charge, the following may be installed:
Panoramic roof today is one of the most common options.It has an additional function of automatic shutter curtain. Head optics of the new generation has an attractivedesign and high efficiency. The new suspension allows you to adjust the rideheight. It should be taken into account that the car can automaticallyunderestimate the suspension when driving at high speed to increase thedownforce. The system of steering of the rear wheels is installed,which allows to increase the stability of the vehicle on the road. There is a system for distributing vector thrust, whichalso significantly improves the driving performance of the vehicle.
It should be expected that the Porsche Cayenne 2018 in an expensive packagewill have all modern systems, as well as finishing of the highest qualitymaterials. In addition, the top version is equipped with 21-inch rims withlow-profile rubber.
In the class of prestigious crossovers there is a fairly large number ofserious competitors who already deserve trust. For example, the following cars:
BMW X5. BMW X6. Audi Q7. Lexus RX. Volvo XC90. Mercedes GLE.
All these models are in about the same price category, they have their ownadvantages and disadvantages. Recently, the company Mercedes has carried out alarge-scale modernization of almost all of its cars. That is why many payattention to the new offer of the German automaker.
