Performance and efficiency, well thought-out and brought to the road without compromise. The Cayenne S features an all-new 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 engine. The result: 20 hp more power than its predecessor with a further significant decrease in fuel consumption. This is thanks to the reduced displacement in conjunction with the new twin-turbocharging.
Thanks to a particularly wide ratio spread, the 8-speed Tiptronic S lowers fuel consumption – and increases comfort and dynamic agility. The low engine speeds in the higher gears reduce the noise level inside the vehicle. The 8-speed Tiptronic S shifts gear automatically and adapts to your individual driving style.
Other energy-saving technologies include the ability to coast along in certain situations, e.g. when you take your foot off the accelerator pedal to reduce your speed slowly. The engine is decoupled from the transmission and slowed to idle speed to prevent deceleration caused by engine braking. The Cayenne S E-Hybrid goes one step further: it can switch the combustion engine off completely while driving.
PTM comprises an active all-wheel drive system with an electronically variable, map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). The electronically controlled multi-plate clutch helps to ensure optimum distribution of force between the permanently driven rear axle and the front axle.
