Porsche is introducing a high performance diesel model to its Cayenne
range in the form of the Cayenne S Diesel.
The 4.2-litre eight-cylinder engine with twin turbo chargers produces 281 kW of power and maximum torque of 850 Nm.
This thrusts the new Cayenne S Diesel to top marks in both dynamic performance and efficiency.
The new diesel completes the 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.7 seconds on its way to a 252 km/h top speed. Fuel consumption can
be as low as 8.3 litres per 100 km (CO2: 218 g/km). One factor contributing to this excellent result is the auto
start/stop function – the Cayenne S Diesel the only SUV with a diesel V8 to offer this functionality.
The driving experience of the newest addition to the Cayenne range is typically Porsche, combining a V8 engine sound
with punchy, smooth performance.
The Porsche Cayenne S Diesel features PTM active all-wheel drive, tuned to give the driving qualities of a rear-wheel
drive. The front wheels only intervene to provide drive when extra stability and traction are needed. Optional Porsche
Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) adds further dynamics to the SUV’s already excellent sporty handling.
The deep reserves of torque of the V8 engine of the Cayenne S Diesel are well suited to towing; the SUV earning a 3.5
tonne towing capacity. It also takes on the role of a long-distance champion: based on its NEDC fuel consumption the
Cayenne S Diesel with its 100-litre fuel tank (standard for Australia) can be driven a distance of about 1,200 km without
having to refuel (given the right circumstances).
The new top diesel model has the same sporty exterior and hardware as the V8 petrol Cayenne S. The brake system, for
example, has been sized to handle the car’s output and is identified by its silver brake callipers. The black fins at the
front-end emphasise the open air inlets. As on the Cayenne Diesel, the “diesel” badges at the front mudguards identify
the type of V8 power while the model badge at the rear identifies it as a Cayenne S.
The Cayenne S Diesel is priced at $155,500* with local deliveries beginning around April 2013.
