The 2018 Porsche Cayenne has been caught on camera by spy photographers again.
Like the new Panamera that recently debuted, the Porsche Cayenne will enter its next generation with styling tweaks rather than a major overhaul. Although the exterior is still disguised, we can see that Porsche won’t make any significant changes to how the Cayenne looks, but it does have a sleeker design and a longer roof. Expected to debut by next year, the new Porsche Cayenne will benefit from the MLB Evo platform that also underpins the 2017 Audi Q7 and Bentley Bentayga. That means one of the most significant changes to the next-generation Porsche Cayenne will be its weight, with the German automaker trying to trim as much as 220 pounds from the body.
In the rear, expect the Cayenne’s design to be inspired by the Macan’s wraparound tail lights, which are hinted at in the latest set of spy photos. Under the hood, don’t expect any significant changes, as the Cayenne will continue to be offered with an entry-level V6 engine, a turbocharged V6 and a plug-in hybrid setup. Of course, there will also be a high-performance Cayenne Turbo and GTS model with a V8 powerplant.
And like the Panamera, the interior of the Cayenne will be cleaned up like we saw in the last set of spy photos. Expect fewer physical buttons throughout, thanks to an improved touchscreen infotainment system.
