Porsche launches new Cayenne in Jordan.

Porsche Centre Jordan, represented by top automotive retailer Nuqul Automotive, has launched the second generation Porsche Cayenne in the kingdom, offered as a hybrid version.

The Cayenne S Hybrid features a parallel full hybrid drive, which ensures a 23 per cent reduction in fuel consumption, offering 8.2 litres/100 kilometres with CO2 emissions of 193 g/km, a statement said.

The new Cayenne introduces the Tiptronic S eight-speed automatic transmission with auto-start-stop and a wide spread of gear ratios, thermal management on the engine and transmission cooling circuit, on-board network recuperation, variable engine cut-off and intelligent lightweight construction.

The new active and extra light all-wheel drive weight also decreases the weight of the Cayenne S by 180 kg.

Extra space inside and greater variability is ensured by the wheelbase now 40 mm longer. In all, the new Cayenne is 48 mm longer than its predecessor.

The cockpit-like interior derived from the Porsche Panamera is also found in the new Cayenne with a centre console between the two front seats.

For maximum comfort also in the back, the rear seat bench now moves fore-and-aft by 160 mm, with the backrest angle adjusting to three different settings.

The range starts with the 3.6-litre V6 Cayenne with an increased engine power to 300 bhp. With its eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission fuel consumption is down from the former model by 20 per cent to 9.9 litres/100 km.

Fuel efficiency is also up significantly on the high-torque Cayenne S with its 4.8-litre V8 power unit, in this case by 23 per cent to 10.5 litres/100 kilometres, while the new engine delivers 400 bhp maximum output instead of the former 385 bhp.

The most powerful Cayenne Turbo, with its 500 bhp 4.8-litre V8 biturbo consumes 11.5 ltr/100 km representing a reduction in fuel consumption of 23 per cent.

At 193 g/km, the Cayenne S Hybrid is the cleanest version of the Cayenne with the lowest level of emissions. In the intelligent interaction of the three-litre supercharged V6 and the electric motor, the Cayenne S Hybrid focuses on maximum efficiency from the overall system, the statement said.

"The new Cayenne features a completely new exterior and newly defined luxury interior," Deesch Papke, managing director of Porsche Middle East and Africa.

"Yet in today's world, it's clearly not enough to pour on more power; there must be a clear, simultaneous improvement in fuel consumption."

"We have optimised this objective to a maximum by reducing CO2 emissions of up to 26 per cent and a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 23 per cent less. This car clearly brings a new dimension to the SUV market," he added.

Imad Hanania, brand manager of Porsche Centre Jordan, said: "This model represents the perfect balance between elegant design, powerful driving dynamics and a high level of comfort."

"Despite all of this, efficiency has significantly improved making this model an outstanding trendsetter in its segment," he concluded. -- TradeArabia News Service
