Cayenne Series 3
1 Nov 2014
Porsche's second-generation Cayenne came in for a major overhaul in late 2014, bringing a sharper look to bring it into line with its smaller Macan stablemate.
The German car-maker made changes to the suspension set-up, introduced a new idle-stop system and tweaked the interior to include a new multi-function steering wheel, based on the design of the tiller from the 918 Spyder hybrid supercar and better comfort levels in the rear seat.
Most powertrains carried over including diesel, petrol and turbo-petrol engines.
Porsche introduced the SE Hybrid variant in 2015, beating competitors including Volvo, Audi and BMW as the first plug-in hybrid premium SUV to market.
