Who would have thought that the sports car manufacturer Porsche would join the evolving luxury SUV market? That said, the Cayenne went out and proved that certain traditional high-performance genes can be incorporated into a high-riding family wagon. The Cayenne, now in its third generation, continues to break new grounds in the world of driver-focused all-terrain vehicles and provides a practical five-seater option for the wealthy. Here we discuss a few distinguishing features of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo 2019.
The Engine’s Power
While all three versions use turbocharged engines, what sets this model apart is the power provided by its engine. Beneath the hood you’ll find a V8 4-liter twin-turbo engine that pump a horsepower of 404kW. In contrast to other engines of its class, the turbos of the Porsche are well placed in the center, also known as the valley. The change in its design though certainly makes the engine more compact, thereby allowing it to attain maximum productivity at a faster rate. In fact, they say, the vehicles now are not impacted by the turbo lag, which in simple terms is the delay experienced between stepping on the pedal and producing high power.
Increased Longevity of Its Brakes
The Turbo comes with the new Surface Coated Brakes, which replaces conventional cast-iron versions with highly specialized tungsten carbide-plated brake rotors. This coating increases the resistance of the brakes to wear and tear and also ensures longevity. In addition, it also increases the resistance temperature, therefore preventing a brake fade.
Brake calipers are upgraded to powerful ten-piston versions as part of the package and after completion of a few kilometers, the disks are then polished to give it a mirror finish. Lastly, the best part is, when left unused even for long periods, these don’t rust out.
New Concept of Minimizing Noise Emission
While aerodynamics may not be an unknown concept amongst sportscars, the innovative concept of shifting spoilers is certainly new and has never been applied to an SUV, up until now. The roof-mounted spoiler is tucked away at the tail and automatically expands when the vehicle is at a high speed, thereby increasing the stability of the car. Apart from this, it also opens up in case of hard braking, therefore helping the car lower its speed to a complete halt with ease. The panoramic sunroof feature on the other hand is an excellent feature of the car. Excellent might certainly be an understatement though, as this feature helps in correcting the turbulence and also reduces cabin disturbance.
