The latest generation of Porsche’s successful SUV model line is now available in Oman. Arrival of the brand’s flagship SUV was celebrated at a special event held by Porsche Centre Oman at InterContinental Hotel, where the Cayenne and Cayenne S were showcased to attending guests.

A completely new development brings the Cayenne closer to its racetrack roots and offers greater versatility and more performance than ever before.

Powerful turbocharged engines, enhanced chassis systems, a range of off-road modes and a sharper design underpin the model’s credentials as a true sports car in its segment. Additional enhancements to the latest generation also include intelligent assistance systems and more connectivity features aimed at offering improved driver and passenger comfort.

Design evolution



A bold new design stays true to the unmistakable identity of the Cayenne but delivers a more streamlined, athletic impression to complement an increased length and lower height. The pronounced bonnet, redesigned headlight contour and trademark large air intakes underline the Cayenne’s improved driving dynamics from the front. Narrower side windows, a redesigned rear wing, wide rear end with integrated light strip and wider alloy wheels further enhance and emphasise its sports car genes.

The new Cayenne offers a spacious cabin, with several comfort and convenience features. throughout. The luggage compartment has been increased by 100 litres.

New driving modes

A true all-rounder, five pre-programmed drive and chassis modes can be activated in accordance to the terrain via the PCM. As well as the default Onroad programme, drivers can choose between mud, gravel, sand, and rocks sett ings to adapt to the relevant conditions. Depending on the selection made, the control unit optimally conditions the engine and chassis systems including the new Tiptronic S, the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel system and the PSM stabilisation programme. The air suspension, PASM damper system, PDCC rolling-motion compensation and the rear axle steering are also activated if the options are fitted.

More dynamic performance and improved agility

The new lightweight chassis of the Cayenne has been completely redesigned from scratch to deliver the optimum balance between sporty performance and comfort, and contributes to an overall weight saving of up to 65 kilograms despite an extended range of standard equipment.

Performance driven engines

The third generation model range combines powerful and efficient engines with a new, responsive eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox which enhances capabilities thanks to shorter response times and sportier ratios in the lower gears.

Cayenne Turbo: Top of the range

The Cayenne Turbo sets itself apart as the leader of the new generation. It is the first SUV to have an adaptive roof spoiler as part of its active aerodynamics. Similar to the 911 Turbo, the spoiler adapts the aerodynamics and downforce to suit the driving conditions. Visually, the Turbo is easily identifiable by its distinctive twin tailpipes, enlarged air intakes, double-row front-light modules and 21-inch Turbo wheels in dark titanium emblazoned with the coloured Porsche crest. The rear apron, exterior mirrors and door side trims are finished in the vehicle colour. Adaptive sports seats with 18-way adjustment, unique stitching and raised side bolsters come as standard in the top-of-the-range model. The Turbo comes equipped with a Bose Surround Sound System to deliver true clarity of sound to all five seats for even more drive enjoyment.
