4.5 out of 5

The latest Cayenne has a dashboard that's more similar to Porsche's sports car range than its predecessor, and has a look that Porsche Panamera drivers will find familiar. A 2023 update brought more tech, including an optional additional 10.9-inch infotainment screen on the passenger’s side plus a fully digital 12.6-inch dash drawing inspiration from the electric Taycan saloon. True to tradition, the driver sits behind a large, central rev counter, but this is flanked with decidedly modern high-definition seven-inch information screens that can be configured with a broad range of settings.

Porsche Cayenne infotainment

The central infotainment display is a glossy 12.3-inch touchscreen, which is flush-mounted and very attractive. The optional 10.9-inch passenger display can be operated separately from the main screen, keeping passengers busy while you enjoy driving the sporty SUV. The infotainment screen is also now compatible with Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto. The display has crisp graphics and is easy to use, and combined with the new dashboard layout, it’s yet another improvement that puts distance between the Cayenne and its rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

Equipment

Every Cayenne has a fairly steep price tag, but generous standard equipment goes some way to justifying the expense. The dashboard is dominated by the same excellent 12.3-inch HD touchscreen found in the latest Panamera, while the front and rear seats are heated and a surround-sound stereo is included. The Cayenne gets matrix LED headlights as standard, and now comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Options

In usual Porsche fashion, customers can specify a wide range of options and packages to add features. You could splash out for adaptive electric front seats, a panoramic sunroof, Porsche dynamic chassis control or other chassis upgrades. New to the facelift was a passenger-side infotainment screen with streaming services and a separate Bluetooth connection. There are a huge number of options to choose from – and none of them are cheap – so be careful when adding features to your Cayenne. In just a few minutes on the configurator we were able to add more than £50,000 to the price of the base model…
