Both hybrid models feature lime-green brake calipers and have exteriors that have been slightly modified to improve aerodynamics. Each comes standard with a Sport Chrono Package that specially tunes the vehicle for sporty performance.
The two high-performing models have been further enhanced with Porsche’s Ceramic Composite Brakes, Dynamic Chassis Control, Sport Chrono Package and Torque Vectoring Plus.
The adaptive three-chamber air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), softens and stiffens the ride as driving conditions demand. Up to 22-inch lightweight alloy wheels and rear-axle steering are also available as optional extras.
All Cayenne models feature LED headlights, a cruise-control system with speed limiter function, camera-based pedestrian protection and Park Assist at the front and rear — including a rear-view camera system in the Cayenne Coupé.
Optional extras include LED matrix beam headlights, a head-up display, Night Vision with thermal imaging camera, and the Porsche InnoDrive digital co-pilot including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, road sign recognition, active lane guidance, junction assistant and emergency braking.
