Porsche Cayenne 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Porsche Cayenne 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Cayenne zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Cayenne 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.

Introduction

German venerable sports car maker, Porsche has decided to roll out the hybrid version of the current Cayenne. Out of the Cayenne SUVs, this is the third with a hybrid powertrain; the first generation model might not have had such a variant, but the second Cayenne had two such variants, a regular hybrid, and a plug-in. This implies that the number of Cayenne hybrid generation is almost equivalent to that of Honda Insight, which was the first hybrid of any type offered on our shores.

 

0-60 and Engine specs

The engines might be down on size but are way up on power. There are four choices available, which are all petrol, beginning with a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 with 335bhp, then a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 with 434bhp and head to the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with 542bhp, also known as the Turbo. Don’t forget the 456bhp V6 hybrid with nowse from the 918 Spyder hypercar in its mode strategy. Can it get any more German than that?

All the options have an eight-speed auto – Tiptronic instead of a double-clutch PDK because it is convenient for towing horseboxes and speedboats, which is something that Cayenne buyers like doing – and there is a massively impressive tech list which is dizzyingly expensive. But would you expect less for a car that can car stop you from curbing it, park itself drive itself both on and off-road..?

Powertrain product line manager for SUVs at Porsche, Friedemann Heller stated that it was a worthwhile effort for the weight savings to engineer a single motor to handle the difficult duty of a cold-engine start. There is only one downside that if there ever happens to be a fault in the high voltage battery, the Cayenne will only drive like a regular car if the 12-volt battery’s charge endures. The location where the SUV is shut off, supposing the fault isn’t self-correcting is where it will have to sit until a tow truck arrives; this is because the car cannot start without the high-voltage battery.

There is a 48-volt subsystem which makes electronics more confusing to the average Joe, and the subsystem is on every Cayenne E-Hybrid if or not it has the optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control ($3590) alongside its active front anti-roll bar. The 48-volt system is necessary for all examples since the anti-roll bar is standard. The standard rear bar helps to counter the effects of mounting the 287-pound, 14.1-kWh high-voltage battery below the cargo floor but adequately above the rear differential.

 

Exterior and Interior

Cayenne has inherited its cockpit from the new Panamera. There is a hi-def widescreen at the centre, and it wouldn’t look out of place in your living room. Beneath that, there is a glassy panel with illuminated icons instead of push buttons surrounding the gear lever. You get a little haptic buzz through your fingertip when you touch one. This might be nice when you’re in traffic, but it’d be nice to have a few knobs to grab when you’re on the move to not take your eyes off the road. With that said, there is also voice control with Alexa-like interpretation skills – press the allocated button on the wheel-mounted stalk, inform it that you are cold, and it will turn up the heater.

There is a central rev-counter behind the wheel which is flanked by two or more screens. The left screen displays traditional circular dials like a speedo while the right shows satnav or other information. When combined with the central display, you control everything from the angle of the air vents to the ride height of the suspension with basically a mini multiplex.

It has similar molded seats like those of the 911, which also drop low; this helps you pretend you’re not driving a large Porsche but a hot hatch. Compared to the outgoing model it has an extra 100 liters of boot space, also, rear passengers have plenty of room – even – leggy – ones. The luggage compartment is not as cavernous as you might expect. The attention to detail, materials, and quality are almost beyond reproach.

 

Verdict

Of the vehicles with a broad range of appeal, the 2018 Porsche Cayenne is one of them. This vehicle is not only an SUV focused on performance, but it is also luxurious and comfortable to live with on an everyday basis. From the v6 base to hybrid model all the way up to a stout v8, there is a full breadth of power plants. Similarly, the price ranges from $60, 000 to almost triple that for the top of the line Cayenne turbo S.
