Porsche Cayenne entered its third generation, and while it looks quite the same as its predecessor, new technology updated are coming, and also a hybrid model. Now, the 2019 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is slowly approaching the markets as a 5-passenger SUV that offers plenty of luxury and high-performance.
Not only it is a luxurious SUV, everything on Porsche Cayenne looks impressive, and on top of that, it is coming with six engine options. While Cayenne is an SUV that combines luxury, style, and performance, some 7-passenger competitors are available for half of the money.
2019 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Changes and Updates
The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is coming with a muscular exterior design. Like the previous models, the athletic look and sport-car stance are still present. The wheel arches are the same as before, and the rear C-pillar is tilted forward. The side view mirrors are slightly shorter from bottom to the top and are wider as a result.
The taillights are sleeker and it gives Cayenne more fashionable look. While the rear fascia is unchanged, the cladding below that is different and it features thinner reflectors in the corners. Next, to that, the exhaust outlets look more rounded and seat lower than before. Under the rear fascia, a skid plate is placed and the rear end appearance is boosted a bit more as a result.
2019 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Interior
Just like the exterior, the interior is slightly different. There are plenty of the same styling cues as on the second generation and are just tweaked a little bit. The corner HVAC vents are having the same shape as before, but now a flat edge also there, and the vents are now seating deeper in the dash. The dash is slightly wider thanks to the thinner door skins. The door handles are identical, but they are little back. The airbag placement and blending on the passenger side is a lot better now.
Beautiful 12.3-inch Display
The 12.3-inch display is integrated into the center stack and the display is wider than the center console, that means center vents are now placed below that. The number of analog buttons is minimalistic as Porsche inserted a huge number of touch buttons. As a result, the console is now shorter and that means there is a much more space. The cup holders are now easier to reach for an instance. Finally, the instrument cluster is now all-digital, with the only exception is a single analog gauge.
2019 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid Engine Specs
The biggest change happened here. The 2019 Porsche Cayenne Hybrid is available with a 3.0-liter V6 that can produce around 420 HP and 435 lb-ft of torque in combination with an electric motor. The electric motor adds 95 hp and 229 lb-ft of torque. Also, there is a 10.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack under the cargo floor.
Another innovation is E-Power system that allows the vehicle to run only on the electric motor. Porsche claims that the upcoming Cayenne Hybrid can reach from 0 to 60 mph in 8.9 seconds. For non-hybrid models, five more engines are available as an option.
