Cost-of-entry to the new Porsche Cayenne line-up is $116,300 for the ‘base’ model, which buys you 3.0-litre, single turbo V6 power delivering 250kW from 5300-6400rpm, and 450Nm from just 1340rpm all the way to 5300rpm.
Claimed 0-100km/h time is 6.2sec (5.9s with the optional Sport Chrono package), balanced by claimed fuel economy for the combined (ADR 81/02 - urban, extra-urban) cycle of 9.2L/100 km (emitting 209g/km of C02 in the process).
As you’d expect in this part of the market the standard equipment list is solid, with the Cayenne featuring partial leather trim, cruise control, LED headlights, daytime running lights and tail-lights, rain-sensing wipers, dual zone climate control, privacy glass, front seats with 14-way electric adjustment and memory settings, remote central locking with ‘Keyless Go’, the twin digital instrument displays, multi-function sports steering wheel (with gearshift paddles), auto tailgate, ‘Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), 19-inch alloy wheels, and ‘Porsche Communication Management’ (PCM) with the 12.3-inch screen controlling nav, phone and audio (10-speaker, 150 watt and digital radio).
