The model-year 2017 Porsche Cayenne is now available to order in Australia, with customer deliveries scheduled to kick off late in the third quarter of 2016.
Prices are up across the range, but Porsche says much of the increase can be credited to a newly expanded list of standard equipment.
For the 2017 model year, the large Cayenne kicks off at $109,400 plus on-road costs, marking a $1800 increase over the 2016 range. At the other end of the line is the $284,300 Cayenne Turbo S, now $3200 more expensive. (See full pricing at bottom of article.)
Now standard across the range is the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system, packing voice control, navigation and a seven-inch display across the range. All variants in the range now also get digital radio as standard, where previously it was an optional extra.
The new Apple CarPlay connectivity system remains a cost option, however, available as part of the $590 Porsche Connect Plus package.
Lastly, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PACM) system has been added as standard equipment for the entry-level Cayenne and Cayenne Diesel models, along with 14-way powered front seats.
