Efficient V6 Petrol and Diesel Porsche Cayenne released in Europe
17th June, 2010
Starting European deliveries of the two six-cylinder models
Cayenne and Cayenne Diesel, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is rounding off the market launch of
the Company’s new generation of SUVs. Both models combine features typical of the Cayenne such as
comfortable sportiness and superior off-road driving qualities with outstanding efficiency on average fuel
consumption of less than 10 litres/100 kilometres.
Equipped with Tiptronic S, the new Cayenne offers average fuel consumption in the New European Driving
Cycle of just 9.9 l/100 km, about 20 per cent better than the former model. On the Cayenne Diesel fuel
consumption is also down by 20 per cent from 9.3 to 7.4 l/100 km.
A further important point is that the diesel, reducing CO2 emissions to 195 g/km, remains below the
important limit of 200 grammes CO2 per kilometre. And last but not least, both models comply in full with
the Euro 5 emission standard.
The significant reduction of fuel consumption throughout the entire Cayenne model range comes, among
other things, from the introduction of the new Tiptronic S eight-speed automatic transmission with Auto
Start Stop and an extra-wide spread of gear ratios. Other factors are thermal management and recuperation
of the on-board network as well as, not least, a significant reduction of weight thanks to intelligent
light weight engineering. These improvements also serve to provide even greater agility, performance and
driving dynamics and, as a result, even greater driving pleasure.
The Cayenne is powered by a 220 kW 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine combined in standard trim with a six-speed
manual gearbox. This accelerates the Cayenne from a standstill to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds (Tiptronic S: 7.8
seconds) and provides a top speed of 230 km/h.
The three-litre V6 power unit in the Cayenne Diesel delivers maximum output of 176 kW, accelerating the
car from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 7.8 seconds. Top speed is 218 km/h.
The Cayenne Diesel comes as standard with eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission featuring an
Auto Start Stop function.
The new Cayenne offers even greater driving pleasure than before both off-road and on-road, combined with
even greater everyday driving value, comfort, and elegance. To give driver and passengers even more space
within the interior, together with greater variability, wheelbase is up over the former models by 40
millimetres. The overall increase in length, on the other hand, is 48 millimetres. The rear seat bench
adjusts to-and-fro by 160 millimetres, with the backrest angle adjusting on request to three different
Further features included in the wide range of standard equipment on the six-cylinder Cayenne now
comprise two-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control, a Headlight Assistant, and the CDR-31 audio
system operated from a touchscreen.
Both the Cayenne and the Cayenne Diesel now also come as standard on 18 inch wheels. New driver
assistance systems such as a Lane Change Assistant and Adaptive Cruise Control are available as an option,
just like the PDLS Porsche Dynamic Light System for variable management of the headlights in accordance with
current requirements as well as the Burmester High-End Surround Sound System with 16 channels and 1,000 Watt
The new Porsche Cayenne range will be released in Australia late next month.
