PORSCHE Cars Australia has ramped up the prices of its flagship Cayenne SUV for the all-new third generation that arrives in Australia in three petrol powertrain flavours in the middle of this year.

The range will now kick off at $116,300 plus on-road costs for the base Cayenne with its turbocharged 250kW 3.0-litre V6 engine. This a rise of $6200 over the superseded model.

Next step up the ladder is the Cayenne S with its new 320kW 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 at $155,100, representing the biggest rise of all – $10,600.

At the top of the pile (for now), the Cayenne Turbo with its thumping 410kW 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 can be ordered for $239,400 – a rise of just $1900 over the outgoing version.

Other variants will join the list over time. These should include a plug-in hybrid, at least one diesel – despite European reports that Porsche has killed off diesel from its range – and (mostly likely) a blistering Turbo S.

For now, it is an all-petrol affair that is new from the ground up, sitting on Volkswagen Group’s modular MLB platform that spawned the latest Audi Q7 and Q8, and Bentley Bentayga.

The architecture is a blend of aluminium and steel, with a skin of aluminium external panels.

For the extra money, new Cayenne buyers get a fresh design inside and out, revised chassis, better connectivity, improved greater safety and a new ZF eight-speed Tiptronic (torque converter) automatic transmission driving all four wheels.

Safety gains include lane-change assist and parking assist with surround view cameras.

The top two variants get a panoramic sunroof this time around, while Cayenne Turbo also features ambient lighting, seat ventilation and four-zone climate control.

Rear-axle steering is now an option, with three-chamber air suspension, electrically activated anti-roll mechanism (an Audi invention) and a torque vectoring all-wheel system.

The Cayenne Turbo’s new V8 – developed by Porsche – replaces the bigger 4.8-litre unit, but for some reason, fuel economy has deteriorated from a claimed 11.5 litres per 100km on the combined cycle to 11.9L/100km.

Unlike the Q7 with its seven seats, the Cayenne seats five, but in a sportier environment.
