Exterior Design & features:

2017 Cayenne has some changes on its exterior design that can be identified as four elements of cayenne; 1st its day time running headlights that are bi-xenon in lower models but turbo model has LED lights, 2nd redesigned front fascia that is more like Porsche Macan with same Narrow horizontal indicators inside air vents


3rd Reworked matching tail lights that make it feel wider where actually it’s the same


and 4th are fenders that are little change with respect to the previous model. The side profile of the vehicle has 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels attached to air suspensions that allow adjusting the height of Cayenne if there are plans for off-roading & one last thing on the rear is the roof spoiler that on out when you turn on sport mode for cayenne.


Interior Design & features:

The cayenne interior is well crafted with leather seating and it looks more attractive with a steering wheel inspired by 918 porsche spyder. It has soft touch material on Dashboard, inner doors and Steering wheel with the same colour. One thing that bothers little is the number of button on center console but again good and logical thing about these buttons is that they are grouped together on the basis of appearance and functionality which make it easy to identify and operate.


You will also notice that the center console is a little small & has less space so for cover this extra space being added inside doors.

Despite different engine and power configurations, all versions have the same 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission with an auto stop/start feature.
