The Digital and Interactive Cockpit
The Porsche Cayenne’s completely redesigned cockpit combines a driver-centric focus with interactive elements that create a dynamic driving experience for both driver and passenger. The instrument cluster now features a 12.6-inch curved, free-standing digital display that provides up to seven customizable views, including the rev counter, online navigation, Night Vision Assist, and a 3D driving assistance system.
The Porsche Driver Experience emphasizes the perfect balance between digital and analog elements, with essential driving controls grouped around the steering wheel. The new engine start button is located to the left of the steering wheel, while the gear selector is now to the right. This repositioning creates room for a new, large air conditioning control panel and additional storage space on the center console.
A Sporty Steering Wheel and High-Quality Controls
The Cayenne’s multifunction sports steering wheel, adapted from the Porsche 911, is both high-quality and sporty in design. The driving mode switch for selecting Normal, Offroad, Sport, and Sport Plus modes is now standard on the steering wheel, as are the controls for the optional head-up display.
The new air conditioning control panel features a black panel design, touch recognition, and haptic feedback, ensuring quick and intuitive adjustments. The 12.3-inch central display acts as the control center for Porsche Communication Management (PCM), providing access to driving and comfort functions, online navigation, and multimedia functions.
The Optional Passenger Display
One of the standout features of the new Porsche Cayenne is the optional 10.9-inch passenger display. This additional touchscreen allows the front passenger to assist the driver by operating navigation, selecting media services, or streaming videos without distracting the driver.
A Luxurious, Sporty Interior
The Porsche Cayenne’s interior design reflects its sporty character, combining dynamic functionality with luxurious comfort. The clean and wide design of the new control concept is accentuated by the redesigned instrument panel, center console, and door interiors. The dashboard’s horizontal emphasis and the vertical alignment of the elegantly designed air vents create a spacious and stylish atmosphere.
Enhanced Connectivity for Modern Drivers
Porsche has significantly improved connectivity in the new Cayenne, offering a cooled smartphone storage area with an inductive charging function, extended integration of online services, and compatibility with voice assistants like Siri. The Cayenne also features four USB-C ports, fast charging capabilities, and easy pairing with smartphones using a QR code.
The new In-Car Video function allows passengers to watch videos directly in the PCM via streaming provider Screenhits TV® – on the central display when the vehicle is stationary and on the passenger display while driving.
