Say hello to the new Porsche Cayenne!

Porsche’s flagship SUV has had a mid-life facelift, and Mat’s about to see just what’s changed compared to the previous edition, while also seeing if it can compete with market leaders such as the BMW X5.

When it comes to the design, it’s not overly different to the previous generation, given it’s only a mid-life facelift. Around the back, you’ll find a thinner full-length light bar, along with some updated exhaust designs. Alloy wheels now start at 20 inches instead of 19, rising up to 22 inches. But step around the front and this is where the biggest design changes can be found. There’s an all-new bonnet with creases sweeping along the front, along with an all-new bumper and grille, flanked by thinner Matrix LED headlights. All things considered, it looks pretty smart!

Step inside and the traditional Porsche quality is clear to see. There’s leather throughout the cabin (although this car does have the extended leather package added!), and everything feels well-built and sturdy. There’s a fully redesigned centre console, and thankfully Porsche has retained the physical climate control buttons. There’s a fully redesigned digital dial display, and a large infotainment screen which is pretty easy to use. This edition also comes with a third screen for the front seat passenger built into the dash!

There are a load of engine choices available. If you’re keeping it petrol-only, you can pick up the Cayenne S with either a 3-litre V6 with 353hp or a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 with 474hp. If you want a plug-in hybrid, two options come with the 3-litre V6 and an electric motor to deliver 470hp or 519hp. The range-topper is the Cayenne Turbo, which combined the 4-litre V8 with an electric motor to put down 739hp.

There’s only a slight issue though – it’s not cheap! The entry-level Cayenne starts at around £70,000, easily rising to over £100,000 for the range-topper with a couple of options added! So is it worth it? Stick with Mat and see for yourself!
