Can you imagine yourself sitting on an armchair, near a fireplace, enjoying a glass of red wine during a cold winter night? This is exactly how you feel in the new Cayenne, of course without the wine part.
The second-generation Cayenne is one of the most comfortable rides in the SUV sector, not only from the leather-wrapped seats standpoint, but also thanks to the overall atmosphere in the cabin. Everything seems to be in the right place and the driver doesn't need more than a simple move to access or press a certain button from the center console or dashboard.
When jumping inside the new Porsche Cayenne, you’ll most likely feel just like a kid would do when stepping inside a play center. Buttons all around, a large LCD display, very comfortable seats and basically whatever you want, placed close to your hand. Talking about ergonomics would be just a waste of time because the Cayenne is way above the superior limit when it comes to this aspect, as both the driver and the passenger can access any feature they want with a simple move, without any effort at all.
There are some differences between the old and the new Cayenne when it comes to the interior and, although some people claimed the first generation was already a state-of-the-art model from a comfort point of view, Porsche’s engineers pushed things one step further. The 48 mm increase in length translates into more interior space which, in turn, means greater comfort for all passengers, regardless if we’re talking about the driver, the front or the rear passengers, be them adults or children.
The rear bench can be adjusted from now on by moving forward or backward by 160 mm, while the backrest angle has three different pre-defined positions.
Just like you’d expect from a Porsche, the atmosphere inside the new Cayenne is, let’s say, breathtaking. Leather all around, an exceptional material quality that feels great to the touch and stylish, elegant lines everywhere. The old handles “mounted” on the center console are still there to provide the driver and the front passenger with extra support when the Cayenne releases the beast hidden under the hood.
Overall, it’s hard not to feel special in Porsche’s new SUV and no matter how hard we’d try, it’s almost impossible to find a thing to criticize. Visibility is great (probably with a minor setback brought by the shape of the exterior mirrors), the driving position is remarkable, while comfort is basically how it should be in every car on the road.Continue reading
