The first images of the third-generation Porsche Cayenne have surfaced ahead of the SUV's official global unveiling at Porsche's Stuttgart headquarters on the night of August 29.
The images of the new Porsche Cayenne show that Porsche's large SUV will sport an evolutionary rather than revolutionary change in terms of exterior design.
The front end of the new Porsche Cayenne is instantly recognisable but features a larger grille and narrower LED DRLs compared to the ones found on the current SUV. The front grille also sports what appears to be a camera/radar module of some sort suggesting that the new Cayenne could sport some sort of autonomous driving technology.
At the rear, the biggest change comes in the form of the new LED taillights which stretch across the back of the SUV and look similar to the ones found on the Panamera Sport Turismo.
Inside, the new Cayenne boasts an all-new interior which includes leather and wood trim, three different displays — two which are a part of the instrument cluster and one large widescreen unit for the infotainment system — along with digital touch controls on the centre console which replace the button-infested layout of the current SUV.
No details have emerged till now about the powertrain options for the new Cayenne, though it is expected to feature the same engines found under the bonnet of the new Panamera. A high-performance hybrid variant is also expected to make to the lineup.
The third-generation Porsche Cayenne is expected to bring more tech along with minor revisions to the styling and powertrains to help it keep ahead of its rivals from its fellow VW group SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga. However, expect the new Cayenne to be the sportiest of the lot, due to the Porsche badge on the bonnet.
