In August of last year, Porsche revealed the third-generation Cayenne. Now, the latest iteration finally makes its way to the Philippines. Porsche Philippines yesterday unveiled the Mk III Cayenne at the North Court, Power Plant Mall in Makati City.
Looking sleeker and shaper, the latest version of the Porsche SUV takes its fair of tech and styling cues from the German sports car brand’s rich heritage. Take for instance the front and rear ends, which won’t look out of place on a 911. Then there are the staggered wheel sizes, with the rears being wider than those up front. This is a first for the SUV as such a setup has previously been available only on high performance sports cars.
While the new Cayenne draws from its sports car lineage, Porsche has not forgotten that its offering is still a family-friendly SUV. Thus the increased length and width that provide an equally larger cargo area. The new cargo hold now takes in 770L of whatever owners wish to store back there. Needless to say, a storage space organizer allows clutter to be packed neatly in place.
Moreover, the cabin’s main highlight is the Digital Display with a large 12.3-inch screen that lets the driver in on all pertinent vehicle data. Just as with any Porsche, the analogue tachometer sits proudly at the center, flanked by two customizable 7-inch screens on either side. And there is the Porsche Communication Management system that keeps occupants entertained and connected while on the go.
