On the outside, the two Platinum Edition Cayennes are equipped with 21-inch Sport Edition wheels finished in satin Platinum, along with high-gloss black window surrounds. Additionally, 'Platinum Edition' front door sills and an analogue central clock complete the upgrades.

Buyers can have their Cayenne S or Cayenne S Diesel Platinum Edition in several colours; black, white (both solid), Jet Black, Mahogany, Purpurite, Carrera White and Rhodium Silver (metallic).

Power outputs remain the same for both models, with the Cayenne S featuring a 309kW/550Nm twin-turbo six while the Cayenne S Diesel utilises a 283kW/850Nm V8 twin-turbo diesel.
