The updated 2015 Porsche Cayenne has been spied again ahead of its anticipated debut later this year and local arrival in 2015.
Snapped by CarAdvice’s spy photographers wearing gloss black alloy wheels and only mild camouflage in the form of headlight and tail-light stickers, the facelifted Porsche Cayenne looks set to continue the German car maker’s tradition of making subtle design tweaks to its model updates.
Comprising a new bonnet, grille, bumper and air intakes up front, the changes also include a redesigned tailgate and slimmer tail-light housings out back along with a refreshed rear bumper and exhaust outlets. The interior is also expected to receive some revisions.
Porsche’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine – churning out 250kW and 460Nm in the Macan S and 313kW and 520Nm in Panamera S guise – will join a new-look line-up that will also include a new plug-in hybrid variant.
Spied earlier this year, and tipped to wear Cayenne S E-Hybrid badging, the petrol-electric SUV will reportedly use a powertrain evolved from the 310kW/590Nm supercharged 3.0-litre V6–based unit found in the Panamera S E-Hybrid, where it claims a combined cycle fuel consumption figure of 3.1 litres per 100km.
The updated second-generation Porsche Cayenne range is tipped to be unveiled at September’s Paris motor show before sharing SUV showroom space with the newly launched Macan – the latter already expected to become the brand’s second best-selling model for 2014.
