The Porsche Cayenne Diesel is following the course of unavoidable global change to accommodating more high-tech diesel powered engines. Incredible advancements in diesel-engine technology have meant massive power gains, cleaner emissions, and superior fuel consumption figures are coming from the powerful modern performance-orientated diesel engines. The brand new Porsche Cayenne Diesel still offers performance that many sports sedans could wish for.
Under the Porsche Cayenne Diesel’s Bonnet lies a 176 kW motor. Porsche claim that the Cayenne Diesel travels from 0-100 km/h in a swift 7.8 seconds. On the right road, the Porsche Cayenne Diesel slips past 200 km/h with ease. The vehicles top speed of 218 km/h is rapid, yet the way the vehicle is composed on the road typifies the way Porsche has complete prowess in sports car dynamics. As is the case for all Porsche Cayenne models, the new Porsche cayenne diesel can manage tight corners and long hauls effortlessly, and marvelously swiftly. Linked to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, your travel is seamless.
If the need requires that you head off-road, then the new Porsche Cayenne Diesel can do this. Most people will drive the Porsche Cayenne Diesel on the tarmac, and Porsche have tended toward on-road performance rather than off-road performance when it comes to the Cayenne SUV. If you happen to be on a picnic, and you head off onto some soft ground, the Porsche Cayenne Diesel will feel quite at home – managing this obstacle with ease. Maybe you are a skier, and find yourself heading to the icy ski slopes during winter – the Porsche cayenne diesel will be the perfect companion for you. The fancy Porsche Traction Management System controls all four wheels. It is an intelligent design that ensures that the power goes to the necessary wheels -when needed – if any loss in traction has been detected.
Porsche have equipped the Cayenne Diesel with an active suspension management system. This is an electronic damping control system that offers an active adjustment for any changes to the damping forces based upon the road conditions and driving style of the driver. The air suspension gives the driver a choice of three setup modes: Comfort, Normal and Sport. As you would expect, this is one of the best air suspensions in the world.
Porsche’s safe handling incorporates a specialized stability management control system. So accurate is the vehicle’s steering, composed is the vehicle’s handling, and powerful the vehicle’s braking performance, the Porsche Cayenne Diesel is simply superior in any emergency braking test.
With Porsche, safety starts with the way the vehicle stops, handles and accelerates. Built around superior performance, the Porsche Cayenne Diesel simply does not compromise on their high safety standards. In the event of a nasty accident, the Porsche Cayenne Diesel has additional protection that comes from full-sized airbags for the driver and front passenger, a side impact protection system that features a thorax airbag in each front seat, curtain airbags are located on each side of the roof and provide excellent head protection for Porsche Cayenne occupants.
The Porsche Cayenne Diesel looks exquisite on the outside with its H7 projector beam headlights, large air intakes, big LED tail lights, twin chrome tail pipes, running boards and integrated skid plates. A special Porsche SportDesign package has the Cayenne boasting a nice looking roof spoiler.
The Porsche Cayenne Diesel is simply stunning on the inside as well. Few SUV vehicles look quite as nice on the inside. The Porsche Cayenne Diesel has a simplistic interior design that is very appealing on the eye. A two-tone dash has tasteful touches of chrome, has smooth rounded edges, is balanced and incorporates a very functional center console.
If you so desire, your Porsche Cayenne Diesel comes with an optional panoramic roof system which can give its occupants a fun open top driving experience. The central console is essentially a communication management system that controls the vehicle’s audio, navigation and communication functions. Satellite navigation comes as standard, and with the 6.5 inch touch screen display you can tune into your local television network. The Porsche Cayenne Diesel interior electronics are voice controlled as well.
Porsche have also equipped the vehicle with a telephone module. This module features the best in Bluetooth communication technology. One of the interesting electronic features that captured my attention was the electronic log book.
