Porsche Cayenne S 2024 review: snapshot

The 2024 Porsche Cayenne S is available in either an SUV or Coupe bodystyle, both powered by the same V8 engine.

The 2024 Porsche Cayenne S is available in either an SUV or Coupe bodystyle, both powered by the same V8 engine.

The Cayenne S starts at $179,500 for the SUV and $188,500 for the Cayenne S Coupe. Both come equipped with LED Matrix beam headlights as well as 14-way electronically adjustable front seats, a head-up display, partial leather interior in black, a new 12.6-inch digital instrument display and a Bose premium surround sound system.

For this mid-life update, Porsche’s designers have introduced a more aggressive look, with a more contoured bonnet, a restyled grille and new headlight signature as well as a tweaked lower apron.

Meanwhile, at the back of the Cayenne, there’s a new rear apron with integrated number plate holder as well as new streamlined three-dimensional tail-lights.

Inside there are changes inspired by the brand’s Taycan electric car, with Porsche moving the gearshift to the centre fascia, alongside the new Taycan-inspired digital instrument display, and switching it to its toggle-style selector, to create more interior storage spaces.

Another major chance for this update is the return of the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which replaces the turbo V6 from the pre-facelift model. The V8 makes 349kW/600Nm, which is a 25kW/50Nm bump from the previous V6. Fuel economy for the new V8-powered Cayenne S is rated at 12.3L/100km.

Porsche has fitted a fairly comprehensive range of equipment as standard across all models in the range. This includes front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags, plus autonomous emergency braking, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and a surround view parking system.
