TEASED: Check Out The New Porsche Cayenne's High-Tech Headlights

Teaser / 8 Comments

All will be fully revealed in just a few days' time.

Ahead of its world premiere at the Shanghai Auto Show on 18 April, Porsche has shared a revealing look at the exterior of the revised Cayenne SUV. Although the exterior design was leaked a few weeks ago on the SUV's infotainment interface, those images were somewhat grainy. In contrast, this official teaser gives us our first clear look at the new design details.

Those details include restyled headlights with a high-tech lighting signature featuring four horizontal bars, with a pair on top mirrored by another pair at the bottom. It's a design that closely resembles the lighting signature seen on the Taycan range. They not only look snazzy, but optional HD Matrix LEDs will also be more advanced than ever, with a much higher LED count to provide improved illumination - hopefully, without completely blinding oncoming drivers.


The hood of the latest Cayenne seems to have been slightly reworked too, with the shut line at the edge now lining up perfectly with the bottom corner of the headlight cluster. Below this, there is another horizontal LED light integrated into the updated grille area with its prominent bars and a more squared-off edge than before. The teaser image doesn't reveal much more than this besides a small section of what is likely an updated wheel design, along with an attractive blue paint color that could be a new addition to Porsche's already extensive range of paints.

As per the previous leak, the rear of the Cayenne will have a thick, full-width lighting bar which is cleaner but quite a departure from the existing model.

Porsche previously revealed images of the new interior, and from here we can see that this is no ordinary facelift. It comes with a new 12.6-inch fully digital instrument cluster, making this the first combustion-powered Porsche to do away with the iconic analog center tachometer; this was a decision that Porsche did not take lightly.

Like those headlights, the Cayenne's dashboard looks more like the one in the Taycan, with a horizontal design theme and a newly optional second touchscreen ahead of the front-seat passenger. That is joined by a reworked center console and an updated steering wheel.

And what about under the skin? Well, the chassis has been significantly revised, and the plug-in hybrid models will have a better range.

Overall, the new Cayenne looks ready to take on its German foes and once again set the pace for driving dynamics in this segment.
