The presentation of a new generation of a comfortable SUV took place in August 2017. As before, Porsche Cayenne in 2018, a new model (photo, price) is a representative of the expensive class. It is assumed that the model will go on sale at a price of 75,000 euros. In comparison with its predecessor, the novelty has a relatively small amount of change from the outside, most of the improvements have come to the salon. Consider the features of this proposition in details.

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.

EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN

EXTERIOR

The appearance of the new crossover will remain almost unchanged. His main qualities are the following:

Head optics can vary significantly, depending on the specific equipment.
Significantly changed the design of the rear lamps. Now it has become narrower.
The car has an active spoiler, which can take a certain position in the automatic mode. Due to it, the clamping force should significantly increase. According to the automaker, the design takes into account the speed and angle of entry into the turn, and when braking it reduces the stopping distance.
The most expensive version of the crossover is a matrix version of the head optics design, which has 84 active elements.

In the rest, Porsche left his recognizable exterior. At the same time, when creating 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 across.

INTERIOR

Most of all changes concerned the vehicle interior. The rather outdated design has changed significantly, while using more modern systems and technologies. When considering the salon, there are several interesting points:

The instrument panel is represented by a combination of a classical tachometer with two 7-inch high-resolution displays on each side.
The installed multimedia system has a 12.3-inch display.
Representatives of the automaker point to a well-developed control system for voice commands. Now many functions can be used without touching the control units.
The installed audio system has a high quality and power of 710 watts.
The design of the seats can boast not only heating, massage and ventilation in an expensive version, but also an 18-band adjustment, which is rare today.

As before, most of the controls are located on the central torpedo. The center console is represented only by a solid quality display. At furnish the most various materials can be used, but here a tree or the ground metal is enough a little. Despite the high prestige of this model, the engineers envisaged the possibility of carrying a bulky cargo, for which the second row of seats can be folded. The third row of seats in the base configuration will not be, as for the optional option, it is still unknown about its availability or absence.

At the center console housed a large 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system, 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 analog tachometer in the center and two 7.0-inch screens on the sides of it, allowing the driver to independently adjust the readings displayed on them. In the car, there were also other steering wheel and gearbox selector, and the quality of finishing materials was improved.

The basic equipment includes: LED lighting head and side lights; interior trim made of genuine leather; seats in the first row have electric heating and height adjustment; security system with 8 pillows; multimedia system with a wide display format and volumetric parameters of the functional; climate – control of several modes; analog tachometer. Also available for the surcharge are the following options: LED lighting with a matrix structure; option to see the road surface at night; modes of heating of seats; The ventilation of the seats in both rows; panoramic inspection from the hatch; audio system model Bose and Burmester; cruise control brand InnoDrive.

TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Engineers of the automaker in question seriously revised the installed engine range, removing obsolete and already inefficient designs. It is planned that the installation of three motors will be carried out, for each configuration of its own. They are as follows:

The turbocharged petrol V6 design is installed in the base. The volume is 3 liters, due to which the design is able to produce 340 hp.
Installed and 2.9-liter power unit, which due to significant 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 in 4.9 seconds – a very impressive result.
The most expensive offer is presented by the petrol engine V8, which at 4 liters develops 550 hp. Such a high power factor is achieved by turbocharging the structure.

Together with all power units, a modernized 8-automatic transmission must be installed.

The new Porsche Cayenne 2018 (photo, trim price) will be supplied with air suspension. Due to this, the crossover will become softer, the function of adjusting the ride height will appear. The very design of the suspension will be represented by a three-chamber system, due to which the road clearance indicator can vary. The driver will be given the opportunity to choose one of the 6 positions in manual mode or set the adjustment to automatic mode. In addition, you can set the following values:

Rigidity.
Degree of stabilization.
Bank.

At the heart of the new generation is the MLB platform, which also includes the installation of adaptive shock absorbers. The all-wheel drive is capable of operating in several modes due to the installation of an electric clutch. 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 weight of the body structure was reduced due to the use of carbon and high-quality steel. In addition, high-quality steel has a favorable effect on the stiffness index.

ENGINES

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.
