Porsche Malaysia today announced that the new, upgraded 2023 Porsche Cayenne is now open for booking.
The new Cayenne now features a suite of new enhancements, innovative high-tech features, as well as a highly digitalised display and control concept. In Malaysia, the new Cayenne will feature an enhanced standard equipment specification, including Adaptive Cruise Control and soft-close doors.
Also, the first 250 orders via a digital platform will also receive exclusive exterior paint-matched vehicle keys. Deliveries of the new Cayenne will commence by the end of 2023.
Priced from RM 599,999, the new Porsche Cayenne, which is being assembled locally, features Adaptive Cruise Control, soft-close doors and the Sport Chrono Package come as standard. Now, keep in mind that these features are all optional in other parts of the world.
Inside, the new locally assembled Cayenne also comes with 14-way electric comfort seats with memory package as standard. Headrests on the front seats are also embossed with the Porsche crest as standard for Malaysia, as are electric roll-up sun blinds for the rear windows.
The new Cayenne also features an enhanced suite of standard features compared to its predecessor, including Matrix LED headlights, Porsche Active Suspension Management, Power Steering Plus, 20-inch Cayenne Design wheels, Front and Rear Park Assist with Surround View, Bose Surround Sound System and a Smartphone Tray with Inductive Charging at up to 15 watts.
Porsche has also integrated a completely revised display and control concept into the new Cayenne with the new “Porsche Driver Experience” which was first introduced in the Porsche Taycan.
While the functions that the driver uses frequently are located directly on or immediately next to the steering wheel, the automatic transmission selector lever is now on the dashboard. This makes room for the new centre console for storage compartments and a large air conditioning controller in an elegant black panel design.
Another key feature of the new Porsche Driver Experience is the large, easily accessible controls that are combined with mechanical air conditioning switches and a haptic volume controller ensure optimum operability and a refined look.
For the first time, the redesigned cockpit of the Cayenne includes a fully digital 12.6-inch instrument cluster with a curved and free-standing design, with variable display options. The standard 12.3-inch central Porsche Communication Management (PCM) display integrates harmoniously into the new dashboard and provides access to all the relevant vehicle functions.
On the exterior, the new Cayenne features a redesigned front-end, a new bonnet, new 3D taillights, as well as a new rear apron with integrated number plate holder. Matrix LED Headlights are now standard as well.
Last but not least, Porsche has also introduced an air quality system in the new Cayenne. As standard, the vehicle uses predictive navigation data to detect approaching tunnel entrances and automatically activates air recirculation.
Three exterior colours are available including Chromite Black Metallic, Carrara White Metallic and Quarzite Grey Metallic, with black or black and red leather interiors to choose from. According to Porsche, deliveries are expected to take place by the end of the year.
