2011 Porsche Cayenne Review

The new generation Porsche Cayenne will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2010. Each model Porsche Cayenne is a leader in the regional market and production than in previous models and offer an increase in consumption for performance up to 23 percent more.

The highlight of the new range is the leading technical full parallel hybrid drive-train, which combines sports performance in an eight-cylinder economy in a six-cylinder, and "navigation mode" single fuel consumption even more low.

Less weight

The choice of materials for optimal weight associated with changes in the general concept of the Porsche Cayenne - a new active substance and light transmission to all four wheels - has led to the total mass of the Porsche Cayenne S, for example, is reduced at 180 kg. This weight reduction is clearly a very positive effect not only on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, but also the speed of performance and handling. Therefore, the width of the new features and technologies throughout the Porsche Cayenne says offers better ride quality both on and off road, with greater safety and passenger comfort.

Greater efficiency

The new Cayenne has been developed using the principles of the Porsche Performance Smart: more power with less fuel, more efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Thisphilosophy is evident in the introduction of a new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission to a wider distribution of speeds, an Auto Start Stop, optimized thermal management of engine and cooling system of the transmission, Recreational board system, and intelligent lightweight construction.

Fresh exterior styling and interior quality

In general, the new Cayenne is 48 mm longer than its predecessor. But despite its external dimensions, the design language of the new generation Porsche Cayenne is a more compact and more dynamic. The new design integrates the new model in the Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Cayenne's sporting character is evident, as noted in the shape and design so typical of Porsche car are also clearly defined.

Inside outer space and ease of daily use provided by a longer wheelbase by 40 mm. The most striking feature in the brand new high quality interior design is increasingly the center console that extends to surround the shifter, which gives the character inside the "cockpit" typically Porsche. In the back seat can move back and forth by 160mm, and the backrest has three different power levels.

Range Summary

At least three of the five versions of the new Porsche Cayenne consume less than ten liters of fuel per 100 km in the new European driving cycle, and two models that emit less than 200 grams of CO2 per km.

Porsche Cayenne

Porsche Cayenne Cayenne range 3.6-liter V6 gasoline. Power rose to 300 hp, but the fuel consumption has fallen by a fifth - in collaboration with eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic - and 28.5 mpg combined (9.9 ltr/100km) is a new European DrivingCycle.

Porsche Cayenne Hybrid

A 193 g / km, the Cayenne hybrid not only the purest version of the Cayenne with the lowest level of emissions, but also the purest Porsche entire portfolio. Porsche Cayenne Hybrid features a 333 hp gearbox which returns 34.4mpg combined fuel consumption (8.2 litres/100km) and CO2 emissions of 193 g / km.

In the intelligent interaction supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine and electric motor, the hybrid Porsche Cayenne S is focused on maximum efficiency of global powertrain. Depending on driving conditions, the vehicle reached this goal with a single disk drive to operate independently or with the two drives to work together. In this context, engine 34 kW (47 hp) electric current is the ideal partner for the 333 hp engine with compressor of high torque at low speed. Together, the two units to give a maximum power of 380 hp and maximum torque of 580 Nm at just 1000 rpm, with the same type of performance than the Porsche Cayenne S with its power unit with a V8 petrol engine classic.

The two drives are connected to each other by an original clutch separation Hybrid Computer Manager. This coupling of separation is essential to drive the Porsche Cayenne hybrid or electric motor or internal combustion alone, or with both drive units to work together. Thus, during relaxed driving conditions, for example in a residential area, this driver to cover short distances on electricity, and therefore absolutely free of emissions (and with almost no noise). It is also possible to operate in this mode at speeds approaching 40 mph (60 kph).

But to ensure a rapid acceleration when off, the electric motor that provides more thrust through its "boost" effect. Intelligent control of clutch separator allows a striking transition between modes of operation of the hybrid system, and that is comfortable and easy to master. At the same time, the combustion engine must be switched off at speeds up to 97 mph (156 km / h) is completely decoupled from the drivetrain when not force is necessary. In this navigation mode is called, cruising along without power they draw power from internal combustion and their braking effect is removed to reduce drag and thus fuel further benefit.

Porsche Cayenne Diesel

Porsche Cayenne Diesel has 240 hp (176 kW) offering three-liter V6 engine 550 Nm of pulling force. In the new car, this engine now offers the consumer 20 percent less fuel, with a combined total of 38.2 miles per gallon (7.4 km ltr/100) increased from 30.4 miles per gallon (9.3 liters / 100 km). Consequently, CO2 emissions of 195 g / km.

Porsche Cayenne S

The maxim more power with less fuel is clear from the Cayenne S, now has a 400 hp high torque motor 4.8-liter V8 gasoline. With 15 more horsepower than the previous model, combined with greater economy, this new engine performs much better in general, like all models of the new generation Porsche Cayenne. Specifically, the fuel consumption by 23 percent, with a combined 26.9 MPG (10.5 L/100km).

Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Greater efficiency is also an attribute of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, with its 500 hp (368 kW) V8 4.8-liter twin-turbo combined voting 27.6 miles per gallon (11.5 ltr/100 km) in the new driving cycle Europe. Is again a 23 percent lower than its predecessor.
