What the Critics Say

“Porsche describes this upgrade as “one of the most extensive” in the company’s history. Porsche’s heritage comes from the sportier side of the automotive world, so it has made the Cayenne one of the few luxury midsize SUVs to bring genuine driver enjoyment. For those with the funds and the fascination, the new Cayenne is a must-consider.” — Kelley Blue Book

“The Porsche Cayenne has a knack for defying expectations; the midsize luxury SUV’s acceleration and handling defy its considerable curb weight. For the 2024 model year, things are only going to get better. A range of newly updated engines should contribute to the Cayenne’s entertaining driving dynamics ( . . . ) We also dig the muscular styling and tidy but modern interior design that Porsche added as part of the refresh.” — MotorTrend

What’s New for 2024

For 2024, the popular Porsche Cayenne receives a significant model refresh that brings changes to both the interior and exterior. Exterior updates include new HD Matrix Design LED headlights, athletically redesigned fenders, and new fascias for both the front and rear.

Under the hood, the Cayenne receives increased power in the form of a more powerful standard 3.0-liter turbo V6 and the return of the popular twin-turbo V8 for the Cayenne S.

Porsche Cayenne Performance


The Cayenne is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 producing 348 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque, giving it the ability to accelerate from zero to 60 MPH in 5.7 seconds (or 5.4 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). The Cayenne S is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that boasts 468 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate to 60 MPH from a standstill in just 4.6 seconds with the Sport Chrono package and continue on toward a top track speed of 169 MPH. A responsive eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission is included as standard equipment across the Cayenne line. Standard Porsche Active Suspension Management can automatically adapt to road surface conditions, strengthening both comfort and stability. An optional Sport Exhaust System provides a thrilling soundtrack as you rocket down the straightaway with your Porsche Cayenne.

Porsche Cayenne Interior


Shown first on the Taycan, the Porsche Driver Experience now delivers a streamlined infotainment experience inside the Porsche Cayenne. A revolutionary feature, the dashboard of the Cayenne prominently boasts a remarkable 12.6-inch digital instrument cluster, 12.3-inch central Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and even an available 10.9-inch display passenger-side display. Without bothering the driver, passengers now have the option to stream content and access separate infotainment controls. Both comfort and ergonomics have been improved by relocating the gear selector to the upper portion of the dashboard, leaving manually adjustable air vent controls and a haptic volume knob in the center stack. Audio enthusiasts will appreciate the optional BOSE® Surround Sound system and its concert-like quality. There’s also an available optimized head-up display that lets you keep your eyes safely on the road while monitoring key information.

Porsche Cayenne Design


While maintaining a strong visual connection to its predecessors, the Cayenne adopts bold design elements that hint at how this generation builds upon its legacy. Enlarged air intakes in the front fascia along with crisp horizontal light edges create a wider, more athletic appearance. The cargo area volume with the rear seats raised measures an impressive 27.2 cubic feet, great for bringing all of your essentials along for the journey. The standard HD Matrix Design LED headlights enhance the visual appeal of the Cayenne while providing illumination with exceptional clarity. Bold alloy wheel designs ranging from 20 to 22 inches in size provide the Cayenne with an unmistakable look, both at a standstill and while in motion.

Porsche Cayenne Driver Assistance

Driver Assistance

Another signature component of the Porsche Cayenne is its comprehensive list of driver assistance technologies, designed to support and safeguard the driver. Standard Active Speed Limit Assist also relies on Traffic Sign Recognition when engaging cruise control. Going one step further, optional Adaptive Cruise Control features Evasion Assist which is able to support the driver in an emergency obstacle avoidance maneuver. Turn Assist scans oncoming traffic when making a left-hand turn at speeds up to 6 MPH and brings the vehicle to a complete stop if the potential for a collision is detected. Available Porsche InnoDrive has been enhanced with Active Lane Keep and Intersection Assist, providing assistance in traffic jams or on highways. As a whole, these advanced features help keep you one step ahead of danger behind the wheel of the Porsche Cayenne.
