The latter though is offered as optional, but further improves the agility on the car. Visually too, the Cayenne has evolved and gets a sharper looking appearance while keeping the appearance similar. The SUV now comes with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PLDS) or LED Matrix Beam headlights, which also include PDLS.

2018 Porsche Cayenne Cabin
The Cayenne is now longer and wider than before but the wheelbase has remained the same, so clearly there was enough space at the back of this 5-seater SUV. But this means the boot is bigger and now there's 100 litres more available to stock whatever you want. The cabin too is pretty swanky and it resembles the one on the new Panamera. You get a 12.3-inch HD infotainment touchscreen, haptic switches on the centre console, and an instrument panel with an analogue tachometer flanked by two 7.0-inch HD display screens, which provide you with details like G-force, tyre pressure monitor, navigation and even fuel economy. And yes, there's Apple CarPlay too in there

2018 Porsche Cayenne Platform
The new Cayenne, therefore had to be better than before which is why it's based on a vehicle architecture for which Porsche was not the engineering lead. The company has used the VW Group's MLB platform, whose development was primarily handled by Audi. It's the same platform that underpins the second generation of the Audi Q7 and even the Bentley Bentayga, which is why the Porsche shares a lot with both these cars.

2018 Porsche Cayenne Cabin and Features
The car's cabin is very sleek, sexy and roomy. Carbon fibre, glossy black, polished metal or leather - there are several trim options for the dash and doors. The seats are sporty black leather - though I suspect you could opt for lighter tones as well. The new Cayenne has reduced the bulk of the previous car, in form and function. So the dash looks slimmer, with excellent materials, finish and features. There is a new giant touchscreen at the central console. Below it - all the toggle switches and buttons have been replaced by backlit touchpads built into a glossy flat panel.
