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.
Max towing capacity
Got people? The luxurious four-door, five-seater 2019 Porsche Cayenne can transport them comfortably. The optional panoramic moonroof and 12.3-inch touchscreen system are impressive when road tripping with friends. When it comes to family time, kids in the backseats enjoy elevated side bolsters to get cozy. The rear seats also split 40/20/40 and when folded down expand the rear cargo area from 26.3 cu-ft to 60.4 cu-ft on the base trim to easily accommodate a dog kennel or holiday shopping hauls.
As you might guess, the Porsche Cayenne comes loaded with ample technology in the cabin. The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system oversees the audio, navigation, and communications features, perfect for business drivers and those who like to take to the back roads but need a little guidance. There are also five USB ports, an option to upgrade to a Burmester® 3D High-End Surround Sound System, Apple CarPlay® connectivity, Bluetooth® integration, and an optional CD/DVD autochanger controlled by push-button or voice control for hands-free operation. This ride really is a tech-lover's dream.
You might just forget you're behind the wheel of an SUV in the 2019 Porsche Cayenne. The base trim features a robust 3.0L V6 with a twin-scroll turbocharger, cranking out 335 hp making daily runs to the school drop-off lane a breeze. Jump to the Cayenne Turbo trim and your inner racecar driver will smile at the 4.0L twin-turbo V8 that does zero to 60 in just 3.7 seconds, according to Porsche when new. This might just be the perfect ride if you want to have some fun on your commute or want to get the neighbors talking.
You really shouldn't expect any less from Porsche when it comes to interior styling. The company's theme seems to be "comfort" with standard 14-way adjustable front seats that have a memory for perfect positioning time after time, a programmable massage function, and air-cushioned backrests. Activate the optional four-zone climate control feature and ionizer to improve air quality and you might just never leave this SUV. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne is the perfect road-tripping, business-traveling, daily-driving vehicle for those who spend hours in the car each day.
Is a teen driver in your household? Or maybe you just want to make driving even easier, the extras on the Porsche Cayenne are worth exploring. The daytime running lights, swiveling headlights to illuminate curvy roads, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, brake warnings, night vision assist, active lane keep, and intersection assist are pretty swoon-worthy for anyone new to driving or who feels a bit timid behind the wheel.
