Porsche Australia has announced pricing for the updated Porsche Cayenne which was revealed a couple of weeks ago. The starting price for the 2015 model is up $4100, however, the new hybrid is over $10,000 cheaper.
Kicking off the range is the Cayenne Diesel, which starts at $104,700. Even with the rise of $4100, the new model is packed with more equipment and is more powerful. It comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, and a 193kW/580Nm 3.0-litre V6 engine as standard.
Next up, the Cayenne S. It drops the previous 4.8-litre V8 and instead adopts the company’s new 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 as seen in the Macan. Output figures rise over the V8 predecessor, while fuel economy is improved. The price has also risen, but only by $1400.
The updated S Diesel sees the smallest engine output increase, up just 2kW from the predecessor. Economy is improved by 0.3L/100km, while the price has increased $1400.
As for the biggest change in the lineup, the new S E-Hybrid. It showcases plug-in technology and the ability to drive on electric power alone. Economy has also dropped significantly, to just 3.4L/100km. Prices have also tumbled by $10,700.
Lastly, the range-topping Cayenne Turbo. Power and torque has risen (14kW and 50Nm) for the 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8, however, prices have increased considerably, by $9200. It does come with more features as standard though, such as 20-inch alloy wheels and more distinguished body trimmings.
