The new Cayenne is expected to come out in 2017, as a 2018 model, and when it arrives should offer better dynamics, fuel efficiency and performance through the SUV version of the Volkswagen Group’s MLB platform. The platform debuted in the 2017 Audi Q7 and has since appeared in the 2017 Bentley Bentayga and 2018 Audi Q5. It will also appear in the upcoming VW Touareg as well as the Lamborghini Urus SUV.
2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Outside
Looking at the front of the test mule, we can see a fairly generous help of the black strip magic. The outer edges of the headlights are sealed, like the top of the fascia. This tells us that the design of the headlights has been refined and will take a slightly different shape where they meet the fascia. The grid also looks to have been revised a bit and will probably be a little bigger. The vent on each side of the grid seems different in the spy plans, but that’s because the insert that surrounds the top and outer edge of each vent is missing at this time.

Looking at the sides, there is not much to say. The same light body line runs through the doors below the waist, but down the body lines look a little more aggressive. The side mirrors also seem to have gotten just a little longer than those on the current model.
Inside, expect a similar design inside the Panamera. There will be fewer physical buttons thanks to an improved touch interface. There will also be enhanced information-entertainment and connectivity options, as well as additional electronic driver aids with semi-autonomous functions.
2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Engine
Unlike the previous Panamera, which had a hybrid plug-in model purely economy-oriented, 2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S added an additional electric gasoline version of the new four-door sedan – and the upcoming Sport Tourism wagon that was also revealed at the show Of Geneva – with the Turbo S E-Hybrid connecting a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with an electric motor to produce 500kW of power and 850Nm of torque, which is enough to give it supercar-rivaling acceleration with a claimed capacity to Sprint from 0-100km / h in just 3.4 seconds.
However, with a driving ability of up to 50 km on a single pure electric power, it is more efficient than a Toyota Prius with a declared average fuel consumption of 2.9L / 100km.
2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Prices
At this point it is impossible to tell what kind of price we will see on the next generation Cayenne but considering rolling on a new price platform can gradually increase across the line. Currently the Cayenne starts at $ 58,300 for the base model and goes up to $ 157,300 from the Turbo S-topping range. The hybrid currently goes for $ 77,200. If anything, I would expect prices to rise no more than a couple of thousand, so expect the next generation to start at about $ 60,000 and the sum around $ 160,000.
