The new Porsche Cayenne despite its considerable price is in good demand, both in the primary and secondary markets. Classy design, unique technical characteristics of the Porsche Cayenne and the desire to stand out makes the sports crossover from Germany a welcome car for many.
True, not everyone has enough money to buy and maintain such a machine. The first generation of Porsche Cayenne appeared back in 2002. Sport crossover in the body of Type 955 / 9PA pleased the fans of the brand not only with powerful motors, phenomenal handling, but also off-road clearance. In addition, the 5-door body was quite spacious for passengers, and the luggage volume was quite impressive.
As for the ground clearance, then in more expensive and powerful versions of the Cayenne Turbo and Turbo S there was an air suspension allowing to change the ground clearance depending on driving conditions and speed.
The second generation of Porsche Cayenne appeared back in 2010 and is being sold at the moment. In addition to the more aggressive exterior in the body of the Type 958 and even more chic salon, the engines have also been updated. Bearing body slightly increased in size, just pulled out and wheelbase. But the mass was reduced, which added momentum.
In 2016, the German manufacturer announced that it is actively developing the third generation Porsche Cayenne. As before, Cayenne has a common platform with Volkswagen Touareg and Audi Q7.
Designers Cayenne managed to do the impossible, move the main distinctive attributes of the exterior from the legendary model 911 to a large SUV. Although this is only a visual effect, which was achieved due to the shape of the front optics, hood and wings. In any case, the appearance of conservative Porsche fans are not disappointed. Photos of the model look below.
Salon Porsche Cayenne will be pleased with expensive finishing materials. Leather, wood, aluminum, any combination of colors and textures to customer’s choice. The central console with a touch screen is thrown into the eyes, which goes into the tunnel of the checkpoint, which has countless buttons and switches for setting the machine for you.
A small three-spoke steering wheel with leather braiding will please with sharp control. The front sports seats clearly fix the driver’s body in any turns. Thanks to the wheelbase of almost 2.9 meters, the rear passengers are provided with the greatest possible space. Interior photos are attached.
The Cayenne Trunk holds 670 liters! If you fold the rear seats, then this figure increases to 1780 liters. If an air suspension is installed on the crossover, then for a more convenient loading it is possible to lower the body fairly to the ground.

Before we tell you about the engines that are available to buyers in Russia, it is worth noting the transmission. As a checkpoint is an 8-speed automatic Tiptronic S with the possibility of manual switching through steering paddles.
Unfortunately, the off-road quality of the generation change has been affected. If the first generation of Cayenne had a blocking of the rear axle, and even a downshift in the distribution, now it is not. The diesel and hybrid version has a permanent all-wheel drive with a Tor sen center differential. But in the petrol versions there is only an electromagnetic clutch that connects the front-wheel drive as needed.

As the manufacturer claims on average, the consumption does not exceed 3.4 liters per 100 kilometers of run.
Gasoline Porsche Cayenne several. The most accessible version is under the hood of the V6 with a volume of 3.6 liters with a capacity of 300 horses (400 Nm.) Acceleration to a hundred takes 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 230 km / h. The Porsche Cayenne S has a V6 of 3604 cm³ capacity of 420 hp.
