Some Unique Features of the Porsche Cayenne
The Porsche Cayenne is a crazy cool SUV that’s packed with a ton of safety and luxury features. It’s got a screen for the front passenger that the driver can’t see, so your buddy can watch stuff while you’re driving, as well as a bunch of technology to help you drive safely, like night vision, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist. On top of that, it’s got a big and powerful engine, it’s super comfy, and it looks amazing – honestly, the only problem you’ll have with this thing is deciding whether to go off-roading in it or keep it looking fresh.
The Porsche Cayenne is one of the most feature-rich sports-performance SUVs, imbuing the modern classic with hard doses of luxury, convenience, function, and utility alike. We’ll cover some of the most popular Porsche Cayenne features, along with how they influence the Braman family’s own lovingly biased Porsche Cayenne review.
Latest Suite of Porsche Cayenne Features
First thing’s first: safety. Porsche has a good habit of helping drivers adopt good habits, too. The Cayenne’s optional front-passenger infotainment display has an inbuilt feature blocking the view from the driver’s side, opening the opportunity to stream more content to the front seat than normally possible.
Other available driver-assisted technologies include:
- Infrared night vision camera
- Adaptive cruise control and lane-centering
- Lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
- Blind-spot monitoring, including rear cross-traffic alerts
Optional HD-Matrix Design LED headlights dramatically improve visibility, and even the standard headlights feature 16,000 individually controlled LEDs. On E-hybrid Cayennes, new-gen batteries are available for a longer range, and the new Porsche Driver Experience makes the driver displays that much more useful and intuitive.
For those hungry for pure frosting, a number of significant luxury trim packages provide drivers and passengers with superb levels of comfort, even on the roughest unpaved surfaces.
Braman’s Porsche Cayenne Review
We’ve just scratched the surface on the Cayenne features — but how do they fit into the overall driving experience?
Unlike most high-performance SUVs, the Cayenne looks more sporty than an SUV, while still managing an impressive 107 cubic ft of passenger space. The long, 114-inch wheelbase is extremely capable of handling the road-tearing V8 turbo powertrain option (boasting 541 hp and 567 ft-lb of torque). It’s so capable, in fact, you’ll be torn between the urge to dig into the wildest terrain vs. treating it like the piece of fine art it is.
And perhaps that’s our only complaint: exactly how are you supposed to engage in the non-stop adventures it was designed for, when it’s just so [optional: damn] beautiful?
