Preview: Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition
Porsche has introduced a new Cayenne Platinum Edition. The special edition Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne S E-Hybrid are easily recognizable by their distinctive sporty appearance, premium-quality features, and very attractive price.
The Platinum Edition’s large 20-inch RS Spyder wheels are housed in wider wheel arches, and its exclusive interior is dominated by leather sport seats with electric eight-way adjustment, Alcantara centre panels and the Porsche crest on all headrests. Porsche uses the Platinum Edition designation for selected model series that are offered for only a limited time.
The models’ expanded features improve comfort and safety. Standard equipment in the Cayenne Platinum Edition includes Bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Power Steering Plus and ParkAssist in the front and rear. The exterior mirrors and rear-view mirror are equipped with an automatic anti-glare feature as standard, while dark-tinted privacy glass provides additional privacy for rear passengers.
A non-metallic black and white finish is standard, with Deep Black, Purpurite, Mahogany, Carrera White or Rhodium Silver metallic paints available as an option. The broadened wheel arches also come in the chosen colour scheme. The models’ exclusive appearance is rounded out by a high-gloss exterior package.
For anyone entering the vehicles, the special status of the Cayenne is plain to see with stainless steel door sills with “Platinum Edition” lettering. As an additional high-end standard feature, the Platinum Edition models come with the latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system that includes online navigation, the Connect Plus module and a BOSE® Surround Sound system. The dashboard is adorned with a beautifully designed analogue clock.
The three-litre V6 engine in the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition has an output 262 hp, while the combined output of the Cayenne S E-Hybrid is 416 hp thanks to the perfect interplay between the three-litre V6 gasoline engine and the electric motor.
