Porsche Centres across India are now taking orders for the third generation of the Cayenne Turbo, which will arrive in showrooms from June 2018 onwards. The new performance SUV is also capable of off-roading with intelligent lightweight construction and smart assistance systems.
This new SUV will feature a 4-litre, V8, bi-turbo engine that delivers a maximum power output of 550 bhp and peak torque of 770 Nm. It can go from 0 to 100kmph in 4.1 seconds (3.9 seconds with Sports Chrono) surpassing the Turbo S with a top speed of 286 kmph. The exhaust turbochargers are arranged inside the ‘V’ cylinder in the central turbo layout. The engine is extremely responsive as the shortened exhaust branches between the combustion chamber and turbochargers. Another advantage is the compact construction of the engine allowing for a lowered engine mounting position, which has a positive effect on driving dynamics: a lowered centre of gravity and improved cornering precision.
The new generation Cayenne Turbo will be the first SUV to have an adaptive roof spoiler as a part of their active aerodynamics along with a new Porsche Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB) as a standard feature. Furthermore, it gets rear-axle steering (from 911), a new three-chamber air suspension and active roll stabilisation which enhances safety and driving comfort of the new vehicle. It also features 5 pre-programmed drive and chassis modes which makes going off-road easier than ever before.
Commenting on the arrival of new generation Cayenne Turbo, Pavan Shetty, Director, Porsche India, said: “The new Cayenne Turbo represents the start of an exciting introduction phase for us, with the Cayenne and Cayenne E-Hybrid also set to arrive in showrooms later this year. The Cayenne has been one of our most popular models to-date and I am sure that the third generation, which offers greater versatility and more performance than ever before will continue the success story, starting with the Turbo derivative. It is a highly anticipated model and as such we are delighted to offer customers the opportunity to order the latest generation of Porsche’s flagship SUV in India.”
