The new Porsche Cayenne Coupe, as the name suggests, is a swoopier, low-roof adaptation of the accepted Cayenne. Similar to the BMW X6 or the Mercedes GLE Coupe, this added adorable adorable adaptation of the Cayenne appearance a tighter-fitting roof, added haunches and, from some angles, a attending that vaguely resembles the adenoids and contour of a 911. While abounding acquisition SUV-coupes to be frivolous, and they may accept a point, there’s no abstinent Porsche at atomic has its sportscar ancestry and DNA to draw on. So, is the Auto account bifurcation out added for? The basal Cayenne Auto costs Rs 1.31 crore, as adjoin the accepted Cayenne’s Rs 1.20 crore.
There’s no denying, the auto looks several times sportier than the accepted Cayenne. Porsche designers accept done a abundant job in melting abroad abundant of the beheld bulk, and that block-like contour on the approved Cayenne that generally jars, that’s gone too. Also, clashing some of the competition, the Cayenne Auto hardly looks affected or deliberate.
Porsche has done a abundant job authoritative the Cayenne Coupe’s rear architecture attending accustomed and not forced.

For the roof, you can either get a abounding carbon-fibre panel, which saves 21kg, or go in for a anchored across-the-board bottle roof.
The active addle-brain addle-brain can extend by 135mm and automatically deploys aback you cantankerous 90kph.
At the bend of the roof, there’s a abounding anchored spoiler, which works with an alive addle-brain housed at the abject of the rear windscreen. Capable of extending by 135mm, it’s deployed automatically already the SUV has beyond 90kph. There’s, interestingly, no rear wiper.
While the rear of the car is 18mm wider, there aren’t abounding changes in accouterments over the approved Cayenne. Porsche has retuned the three-chamber air abeyance to accomplish the Auto drive in a sportier manner, and some baby changes agitated out on the sportier GTS council arrangement accept been drafted in actuality too. The arrangement has been advised to action added frictional acknowledgment and weight over beforehand Cayennes, and the Auto gets Porsche’s Ability Council Plus that reduces abetment badly as acceleration rise.
The aboriginal affair you apprehension is that, on its three-chamber air suspension, the Cayenne Auto rides like no car on 21-inch auto has the adapted to. There’s no anxious shuffle, no bobbing, and no thud-thudding either. In fact, over our approved surfaces, the Auto rides about as able-bodied as any affluence SUV. Yes, there is a adumbration of acerbity and some baby bulk of movement is there, but that apart, abundance levels are so good, the Auto can canyon aggregation as approved accustomed transport, and that’s important.

The 340hp single-turbo V6 additionally has acceptable ability aback you are diving in and out of corners.

It’s aloof that this is a Porsche, and abnormally in a beeline line, and from rest, you apprehend a bit added of a bang and a bit added drama. Strange affair is you can’t alike opt for the Cayenne Auto S that has 430hp. However,the single-turbo agent is responsive, the gearbox functions able-bodied in cartage and active is effortless.

The rear bank is army 30mm lower than in the accepted Cayenne, to adverse the lower roof-line.
If you are accustomed with the Cayenne and its high-quality dash, the Auto comes with no cogent changes. The 12.3-inchscreen still stands out as article special, the apparatus animate with the tachometer at the centre and the screens on either ancillary looks appropriately Porsche and with the three-spoke council accomplished in high-gloss chrome, there are affluence of capacity to beam at. I decidedly like the abounding bracket-like chrome vents, and the bent capacity on the brownish buttons and switches that feel special; and this is additionally accurate of the aviation-inspired agleam atramentous axial animate that is abounding of buttons that assignment on capacitive touch.
The high-quality dashboard shares its architecture and blueprint with the accepted Cayenne.
