New Porsche Cayenne 2020 pricing and specs detailed: BMW X5 and X6 rival ups ante with update

The Porsche Cayenne has been updated for MY21.

Porsche Australia adjusted the pricing of the Cayenne large SUV, with three of its variants decreasing by up to $600, while the remaining nine have increased by up to $6300.

The recently revealed E-Hybrid coupe (-$600) and GTS wagon and coupe (-$400) are the only versions to get price cuts, down to $151,000, $192,500 and $197,800 plus on-road costs respectively; due to the new financial year’s higher Luxury Car Tax (LCT) threshold.

As for the rest of the range, the Turbo S E-Hybrid wagon has jumped by the least, up $4200 to $292,200, while the S coupe has risen by the most, up $6300 to $172,500.

That said, buyers of the established variants are compensated with the addition of a head-up display and keyless entry for MY21. Standard specification otherwise carries over.

All in all, the Cayenne now starts from $121,300 for the wagon and tops out at $292,900 for the Turbo S E-Hybrid coupe (see full pricing table below).

As before, the large SUV is available in traditional wagon and style-focused coupe body-styles, with the unnamed entry-level grade motivated by a 250kW/450Nm 3.0-litre single-turbo V6 petrol engine, while S versions use a 324kW/550Nm 2.9-litre twin-turbo unit.

The GTS and Turbo grades are powered by the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, albeit in two states of tune: 338kW/620Nm and 404kW/770Nm respectively.

The plug-in hybrid E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid variants add an electric motor to the engines from the unnamed entry-level and Turbo grades respectively, lifting their outputs to 340kW/700Nm and 500kW/900Nm.

No matter the version, the BMW X5 and X6 rival is mated to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission and Porsche’s all-wheel-drive system.
