The latest generation of Porsche’s successful SUV model line is now available in the UAE.

Arrival of the brand’s flagship SUV was celebrated at a special event held by Porsche Centre Dubai and Northern Emirates, Al Nabooda Automobiles at their Dubai Showroom, where the Cayenne and Cayenne S were showcased to attending guests. A completely new development brings the Cayenne closer to its racetrack roots and offers greater versatility and more performance than ever before. Powerful turbocharged engines, enhanced chassis systems, a range of off-road modes and a sharper design underpin the model’s credentials as a true sportscar in its segment. K Rajaram, Chief Executive Officer of Al Nabooda Automobiles, said: “The Cayenne has been one of the most popular models in the UAE, and I have no doubt that the third generation will continue this success story.”

A bold new design stays true to the unmistakable identity of the Cayenne but delivers a more streamlined, athletic impression to complement an increased length and lower height. The pronounced bonnet, redesigned headlight contour and trademark large air intakes underline the Cayenne’s improved driving dynamics from the front. Narrower side windows, a redesigned rear wing, wide rear end with integrated light strip and wider alloy wheels further enhance and emphasise its sports car genes.

It also offers a spacious cabin, with several comfort and convenience features throughout. The luggage compartment has been increased by 100 litres and there’s a new 12.3in touch display.

With its 550 horse biturbo eight-cylinder engine, the Cayenne Turbo is the top model in the new generation and exceeds the engine of its predecessor by 30 horses, while the maximum torque of 770Nm represents an increase of 20Nm. It accelerates from 0-100kph in 4.1 seconds and has a top of 286kph.

The Cayenne starts from Dh313,200, the Cayenne S is Dh381,300 and the top model Cayenne Turbo Dh582,000.
