Introducing the 2021 Porsche Cayenne
Looking for something new in the world of luxury cars? The Porsche Cayenne certainly has it with two great 2021 Cayenne models: the SUV and the coupe. Both amazing vehicles, you’ll find the power you expect from this brand along with the features you demand.
Porsche Cayenne – The SUV
The 2021 Cayenne SUV may look like an SUV, but it’s nothing short of a sports car. This one offers three different powertrain options including a pair of V6s, a hybrid, and a twin-turbo V-8. The V-8 offers 460 hp, a lowered suspension and additional hardware designed to enhance performance. The hybrid offers a battery capacity that produces 17.9 kWh, and thanks to some amazing upgrades, it makes a more efficient use of the gas engine, increasing the life of the battery itself. Inside, you’ll find a spacious interior with lots of options.
The base model runs $40,000 cheaper than the other options and comes with a 12.3 inch touchscreen infotainment system, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot. There’s also a 10-speaker stereo system. Add the premium package and you get 14-way power front seats as well as adaptive LED headlights, as well as the Bose version of speakers in the form of a surround-sound system. You also get safety features like blind-spot monitoring. Hands-free passive entry and heated front seats are included as well. You can expand your options with the on-road performance and off-road capability that are included with the Sport Chrono package as well as the Off-Road package.
If you’re interested in upgrading a little further, you get 20 inch wheels as well as a heads-up display. If you need a little more performance, though, you can upgrade to the GTS model with that V-8 engine that simply spells better driving. You’ll move steadily with athleticism that is often reserved for coupe models. Even with this power, though, you won’t sacrifice safety as you’ll need just 159 feet to stop even at 70 mph. Worried about mpg with something this big? Don’t be. You’ll see 19 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway.
Nearly every interior option can be customized whether you want a different seat belt color or a different surface material. The backseat offers lots of passenger room and cargo space, too.
Porsche Cayenne – The Coupe
The coupe only builds on many of these ideas, offering six different models to meet your needs. Powertrain options include a 340 horsepower 3.0 liter V-6 option, a 434 horsepower twin-turbo 2.9 liter V-6 engine, a twin-turbo 4.0 litre V-8 with 453 horsepower, and a 541 horsepower on the Turbo model. The other two come from the E-Hybrid model, one with 455 horsepower and the other with 670 horsepower. Both, though, offer the expanded battery pack the SUV version does, which means 17.9 kWh and expanded life.
No matter what you choose, you’ll find standard 21 inch rims and fairly low suspension, which leads to precise, agile handling. The base model offers 19 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway, and while upgrading does cost you some fuel economy performance, it doesn’t greatly shift those numbers. Inside, you’ll find 33 cubic feet of cargo space, as well as a standard panoramic fixed-glass sunroof.
Additionally, you get power seats with eight different adjustments and bucket seats in the rear of the vehicle. The optional packages, though, are maybe what makes the interior of this car. While they can push the price up fairly quickly, they offer some real bonuses for consumers. Infotainment and connectivity still reign supreme in this model. You’ll find a 12.3 inch infotainment system standard with a touchscreen interface. Apple CarPlay comes standard as well, as does a WiFi hotspot. The standard speaker stereo comes with 10 speakers, but you can upgrade as far as a 21 speaker Burmester 3D high-end system that means more power even from your stereo system.
