Porsche Cayenne Coupe 2020

Porsche Cayenne Coupe 2020. When the Cayenne SUV debuted in 2002, many Porsche lovers have suggested the end of the brand (and possibly the world) is near. But the most important fact that these stubborn fans neglected was that other car owners were also passionate about the brand — people who needed more space than 911 could provide. Today, the Cayenne and his smaller brother, the Macan SUV, are the most popular models that sells Porsche, combining serious sportiness and versatility of an SUV.

But the market does not stand still, but is constantly evolving. And Porsche realized that it needed a direct competitor for a new generation of fashionable coupe-style SUVs. This is where the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe 2020 model year appears. This is a practical Porsche that struggles to be less functional in exchange for a sleeker style and slightly better performance. Is this a recipe for victory? Given the crushing success of the original Cayenne, we would not bet against it.

Coupe Style

To create the Cayenne coupe-shaped roofline, Porsche engineers didn’t just change the rear half of the car. They also lowered the roof at the top of the windshield by more than 2 cm. The lowered roof moves smoothly from front to back, where it ends with a highly mounted spoiler. Under the rear window is another spoiler, which can rise to a height of 13.5 cm at speeds above 90 km per hour.
The rear of the Cayenne Coupe 2020 also received a more upright design to emphasize the width and height of the car. As a result, the trunk lid was changed so that the license plate was on the bumper, and not above it in the corresponding recess.
In addition, the roof structure is significantly different. Instead of a conventional sheet metal or a simple hatch, the Cayenne Coupe 2020 will have a panoramic roof as standard equipment. A carbon roof is also available, which is part of the sports package, similar to the ones found on the ultra-sports 911 GT3 RS and 911 GT2 RS from Porsche.

Coupe engines

Porsche will offer two options at the start of sales: the Cayenne Coupe and the Cayenne Turbo Coupe. Both models will use engines already available on the regular Cayenne and Cayenne Turbo. The Cayenne Coupe will be powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine that delivers 335 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque, while the Turbo Coupe will be equipped with a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 developing 541 hp. and 567 Nm of torque.
Both motors will drive all four wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and dynamic all-wheel drive system. Like the regular Cayenne, both Coupe will be able to shuffle the torque from front to back to increase traction.
Porsche employees say the Cayenne Coupe should accelerate to 0-100 km per hour in 5.7 seconds. When equipped with a sports package, the required time is reduced to 5.6 seconds, and the maximum speed will be 243 km per hour. The Cayenne Turbo Coupe can accelerate to 100 km per hour in just 3.7 seconds, and the maximum speed will be limited to 286 km per hour.

Coupe Benefits

To improve the handling and dynamics of the Coupe, various options from the regular model are standard equipment. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) allows drivers to adjust suspension stiffness for comfortable or sporty driving conditions. The Sport Chrono package adds a mode dial to the steering wheel so drivers can quickly switch from Comfort to Sport or Sport Plus. It also adds a launch-control feature to maximize acceleration. And an analog stopwatch at the top of the dashboard so you can determine the time it takes to get to work (or complete the lap on your favorite racing track). Finally, 20-inch wheels are standard and can be fitted with sticky summer tires to maximize grip on asphalt surfaces.
Inside, eight-way adjustable sports seats are standard and feature more support with an integrated headrest for developing a sports coupe theme. Optional fabric seats with a classic Pepita pattern are available (perhaps our favorite option), as well as various other carbon fiber and aluminum trim elements.
The rear seat can be in three- or two-seater version. The rear seats themselves are adjustable and have more support than in a typical SUV. Behind the seatbacks is about 620 liters of cargo space, which is actually not so much inferior to the usual luggage compartment of Cayenne with its 767 liters.

Coupe Compromises

However, the reduced boot space emphasizes the trade-offs that come with the more elegant roofline. To keep some distance from the head to the ceiling, the rear passengers will sit about 3 cm lower compared to the standard Cayenne. This height affects the ease of entry and exit of the vehicle. Therefore, lower passengers in the rear seats can get stuck when exiting the car, as well as staring at the door panels, to note the lack of the desired view during the ride. But the Coupe meets other needs than the standard Cayenne, and the buyer must be prepared to accept these compromises.

Neither Audi nor Lambo

Until we get the opportunity to drive it ourselves, we see the Cayenne Coupe 2020 as the middle child between the Audi Q8 2019 and Lamborghini Urus 2019, the other two Volkswagen Group crossovers with which it shares the platform. The Cayenne Coupe 2020 is not as roomy as the Q8, but it is more functional than the Urus. The affordable turbocharged V8 will certainly make the Porsche faster than the Q8, but the 650-horsepower Urus is likely to continue to dominate the road. However, given the growing popularity of sports crossovers, this middle ground is likely to be valuable territory.
In the Porsche lineup, it might be better to think of the Cayenne Coupe 2020 as a tall Panamera with a slightly easier entry and exit. He will probably ride on the highway a little softer than the Panamera, and better cope with a snowy or dirt road. Yes, the Panamera will probably still be better than the Cayenne Coupe 2020, on a winding road. In any case, the potential buyer of the Cayenne Coupe 2020 is probably not interested in maximum overloads, but prefers a luxurious, customizable car (however, like any other Porsche) with bright driving emotions, while allowing only an easy compromise in everyday functionality .

Prices and start of sales

The 2020 model year Porsche Cayenne Coupe is expected to be available in the fall of 2019 at a starting price of 5,877,000 rubles, while the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe 2020 will cost 11,013,000.
