Fast and comfortabe
Sporty family SUV
Cayenne makes the Porsche experience even more fascinating, even more diverse. And yet remains what it has always been: a genuine sports car. Cayenne is quick, luxurious and surprisingly practical despite its sporting badge.
Porsche Cayenne Description
- Rear-axle steering turns the rear tires up to 3 degrees out of phase with the fronts at speeds below 50 mph to help the Cayenne rotate through turns and with the fronts up to 1.5 degrees above 50 mph to provide highway stability.
- Did you wonder why the key in every Porsche is in the left? Back in the day, drivers at Le Man did not start inside their racecars. The had to sprint across the width of the track and take off. Porsche figured out a way to speed up this process. They relocated the ignition key to the left of the steering wheel. That meant that a driver could start the key with one hand as they put it into gear with the other. To this day, the key in every Porsche remains to the left.
Features & options

New in all Cayenne models: the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept. The centre console with Direct Touch Control features an interface in glass look with touch-sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions. Among these: the compact gear selector. The new instrument cluster sits behind the multifunction Sports steering wheel.
In addition to its range of smart services, Porsche Connect offers two smartphone apps. The first, Porsche Car Connect, lets you use your smartphone or Apple Watch® to retrieve vehicle data and remotely control selected vehicle functions. Another feature is the Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (PVTS) including theft detection, enabling the remote location of a stolen vehicle across most of Europe.
Porsche Hill Control is an assistance system, which helps the driver when driving slowly downhill at speeds between approx. 3 km/h (2 mph) and approx. 30 km/h (20 mph), e.g. on steep slopes or on wintry mountain roads, both forwards and in reverse. The braking action of Porsche Hill Control is impaired on slippery surfaces (e.g. on icy roads or loose surfaces).
If Porsche Active Safe (PAS) detects that your vehicle is approaching the vehicle in front too quickly, the system issues an audible and a visual warning. Where necessary, this may be accompanied by a brief jolt of the brakes and the initiation of targeted braking. During this process, any braking by the driver is boosted to achieve the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.
