Porsche Cayenne Coupe Makes Its Asian Debut At Auto Shanghai 2019
The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe is exhibited at Auto Shanghai 2019 these days. The public will be able to view it till April 25.
Porsche is presenting the Cayenne Coupe in China, which is the largest key market for the brand. The Auto Shanghai event, in its turn, is one of Asia’s most important motor shows. The vehicle is positioned as ‘the sportiest option in its class’.
Last year the carmaker from Stuttgart delivered more than 31,000 Cayennes in China (+19% to the result of 2017). The coupe variant is more progressive, muscular, emotive than the regular third-generation Cayenne.
It got some new technical and design elements: lower roof (by 0.79″/20mm), broader shoulders (by 0.71″/18mm), combined spoilers (an adaptive rear one extends by 5.3″/135mm), new weight-reduced 22-inch GT Design wheels.
A panoramic fixed glass roof is available as standard, a carbon roof is optional. Three lightweight sports packages are offered as option.
Inside there are two sports seats in front and a bench behind able to serve as two individual seats. A rear seat system with three seats is available as an alternative free of charge. Rear passengers sit 30mm lower than in the Cayenne. The trunk is 625 liters or 1,540 liters with rear seats folded down (Cayenne Turbo Coupé: 600 to 1,510l).
The standard equipment includes speed-sensitive Power Steering Plus, 20-inch alloy wheels, front and rear Park Assist including rear view camera, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the Sport Chrono Package.
At the launch Porsche offers two engines for the Cayenne Coupe: a 6-cylinder 3.0-liter 340-hp turbo one (max 332lb-ft/450Nm) and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 (550hp, 568lb-ft/770Nm).
The Porsche Cayenne Coupé’s combined fuel consumption is 9.4 – 9.3 l/100km (25.3 – 25mpg). The Turbo Coupe: 11.4 – 11.3 l/100km (20.8 – 20.6mpg) according tp WLTP cycle*.
*The average ratio WLTP/EPA is 1.121 with a standard deviation of 0.092.
