The all-new Porsche Cayenne S is scheduled for arrival somewhere around the end of this year, or the beginning of the next, and one of the most interesting models in the lineup will be the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S. The first generation was introduced back in 2002 and sold as a 2003-year model. Since then, it has been one of the most luxurious SUVs on the market, and it was sold in a huge number of units. Apart from the S trim, there will be additional five trims available – Diesel, S e-Hybrid, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S, having the most powerful engine.
As it’s already been stated, the new luxury SUV won’t hit the dealerships until the beginning of 2017. The model will probably be produced in a factory in Leipzig, Germany. We are eager to test this version since we saw few images, and we really liked what it brings.
Although there is still plenty of time until the new 2017 Porsche Cayenne S appears in the showrooms, we already have price estimations. Especially when we take a look at the pricing politics of the previous models, we know that these reports quite close to the truth. This new car will be priced from around $59,600 for the base model, while the most expensive Turbo S will cost you almost three times more – about $159,600. Although the prices may seem a bit high, the car is well worth the price. Particularly the most popular S trim will be priced at $76,200 comparable with competitors from BMW, Audi, Mercedes and few other U.S. brands.
The exterior of the new Porsche Cayenne S is more than extraordinary. The overall impression is that it looks a lot like its smaller brother – the Porsche Macan, with which it shares the beautiful clamshell hood, but that is not a bad thing at all. At the front, this SUV will keep the oval shaped LED headlights, featured on the previous model. The front air intake openings are a bit thinner and wider than that found on the second generation, which contributes to the higher level of elegance and refinement. The model will also feature a couple of oval shaped side air duct grills, just like before, which will feature single stripe LED fog lights.
2017 Porsche Cayenne S Review
The back of the car follows the sleek design lines of the front and the rest of the car. The first things that come to sight are the thin and stylish taillights, which are giving the car a more futuristic look, something you’d find on a Land Rover Evoque. The taillights are cross-connected to form a single unit, with a Porsche name spelled across the bridge. The bottom of the rear bumper features a single pair of chrom-plated exhaust pipes. Looking at the side, we can notice a more aerodynamic design, thanks to the lower rear end.
The interior of the new Cayenne S surely won’t lack any luxury details. The new model will feature top quality materials and premium leather upholstery. The cabin itself is quite comfortable, with plenty of room for driver and passengers. Regarding the implemented technology, the new model will feature LCD with the infotainment system, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, multi-zone air conditioning, power adjustable steering wheel, navigation system and much more.
From high-quality leather to soft touch materials, everything is offered in the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S. You can be sure that you will not lack any luxury and comfort in this vehicle. As soon as you sit in this SUV and take a look at the center console, you will see the large touchscreen and a large number of various buttons that are used to control the audio system, air conditioning, and various in-car systems. Fit and finish level are superb and truly shows what real luxury means.
The Cayenne S will come equipped with a 3.6 liter turbocharged V6 petrol engine. Although it will be the base engine with an added turbocharger, it surely won’t lack any power, as the engine will be able to produce outstanding 420 horses at 6,000 rpm, with a maximum torque output of around 406 pounds-feet. You will notice that the 2017 Porsche Cayenne S is a pretty heavy vehicle, total weight is about 4,597 lbs, but this engine has no problems carrying it. As far as the acceleration is concerned, it will be able to jump from 0 to 62 mph in about 5 seconds, which is a remarkable result, given the fact that it is an SUV. The mileage is equally impressive, as the new model will be able to travel, per a gallon of fuel, 17 miles in the city, 24 miles on the highway, with an average of 23 mpg.
