Porsche is gearing up for the introduction of the all-new Cayenne SUV which is expected to be officially revealed in September 2017 at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

These latest spy images show the Cayenne undergoing final testing with very little camouflage, giving us a good idea of what the production model will look like. The most notable change is its new slatted front grille which now spans the entire width of the front-end. The rear-end has also changed somewhat with newly designed taillights and a fresh wheel design rounds off the new look. The 2018 Cayenne is also expected to be some 100 kg lighter than its predecessor which will bode well for performance.

The new Porsche Cayenne can be expected in SA in 2018. 

The new Cayenne will reportedly feature the same engines offered for the Panamera sedan including a 324 kW 2.9-litre biturbo V6 and 404 kW 4.0-litre biturbo V8. A 4.0-litre V8 turbodiesel engine, the same that powers the Audi SQ7 SUV with 320 kW and 900 Nm of torque, is also on the cards for the Cayenne. More than this, an electric hybrid version is likely.

The new Porsche Cayenne can be expected in South Africa in 2018 and we will keep you updated as soon as official details surface closer to the Cayenne’s reveal at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
