New 2022 Porsche Cayenne facelift caught on camera with less camouflage

New 2022 Porsche Cayenne facelift caught on camera with less camouflage

Category : ,

We’ve already spotted the facelifted Porsche Cayenne testing in range-topping Turbo S E-Hybrid trim, and now our spies have photographed the updated 4×4 in both SUV and Coupe guise ahead of its release later this year. These pre-production cars are more thinly disguised than before, giving a closer look at the Cayenne’s styling tweaks. 

At the front of both the SUV and Coupe, larger, reshaped headlights have been fitted which incorporate Porsche’s quad-LED running light signature, along with a slightly reprofiled front grille featuring thinner single strip indicators. The bonnet has been tweaked, too, with a pair of narrower strakes along its length, and the lower front bumper appears to have gained a set of air vents at its outer extremes.

As our previous spy shots revealed, the Turbo S E-Hybrid model will adopt a deeper, more menacing front grille arrangement and enormous 10-piston brake callipers painted in Acid Green. These latest images also reveal a new multi-spoke alloy wheel design that will arrive as part of the facelift. 

At the rear, the Cayenne and Cayenne Coupe will receive redesigned LED tail-lights and a new diffuser, with the standard SUV repositioning the number plate below the tailgate. The only other change is a tweaked lip spoiler for the coupe model.

However, there are more notable changes inside. Photographs of the interior reveal a revised centre console, which has been simplified with a single row of toggle switches and a large volume dial. A pair of USB Type-C sockets can be seen below these controls, too.

The large, pistol-like gear selector of the current car has been swapped for the short, stubby item found in the latest 911. The steering wheel of this test car is also borrowed from Porsche’s sports car.

As with the current model, the facelifted Cayenne will utilize Porsche’s PCM 6.0 infotainment setup, which is controlled through a 12.3-inch touchscreen. The system features connected intelligent satellite navigation, ‘natural’ voice control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. 

Under the skin, the facelifted Cayenne will utilise the same mechanicals as the outgoing car, albeit with a few tweaks. Porsche’s engineers are likely to retune the suspension settings to improve ride and handling, and the existing engines could be updated to provide improved performance and efficiency.

As the most powerful SUV in Porsche’s line-up, the facelifted Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid will use a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine combined with an electric motor to produce 671bhp and 770Nm of torque. The revised car is likely to borrow the upgraded version of this powertrain as fitted to the latest Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, which sees a boost to 690bhp. 

We expect the Cayenne to be revealed early next year, alongside a revised Cayenne Coupe.
