All-new for 2019, the Porsche Cayenne sets the bar even higher for rivals

All-new for 2019, the Porsche Cayenne has upped the power, added some equipment, and reduced overall weight while retaining the luxury and class-leading driving dynamics that have long been a hallmark. The offering remains familiar, with base, S, E-Hybrid, and Turbo models, a lineup that is certain to fill out in the coming years. New for this third generation is the availability of the Cayenne Coupe. It loses some outright trunk space for a sleeker look and rivals similar upscale SUV coupes from BMW and Mercedes-Benz, among others. The base Cayenne model is fitted with a 335 hp 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, 19-inch alloy wheels, all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission, and a new 12.4-inch touchscreen inside.

The Cayenne S comes with a 434 hp 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 and Porsche’s PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) adaptive suspension. The plug-in choice is the E-Hybrid, mating a 3.0-liter V6 to an electric motor for a combined 455 hp. The Turbo is the top dog, with a twin-turbo V8 engine developing 541 hp, and suspension, brake, and equipment upgrades commensurate with its elevated performance and higher price point. They’re all impressive, as you might anticipate, and the all-new Cayenne convincingly takes over where the old one left off.
