Porsche Unveils Two New Variants Of The Cayenne SUV For 2024

These are the Porsche Cayenne and Cayenne S also available in Coupe and E-Hybrid options

German automaker, Porsche, has a firm and well established presence in Malaysia and this has been the case for many years. In addition to the popular 911 sports coupe, which the brand is most well known for globally, the Porsche Cayenne and Macan SUVs are perhaps the brand’s most popular models here.

While the Porsche Panamera and Taycan sedans are also very well known cars, most Malaysians tend to favour SUVs over sedans and coupes, say what you want about Malaysians, but we are a practical bunch, almost unnecessarily so, though few, if any, will ever admit it. If you know, you know.

Moreover, the Porsche Cayenne specifically, has captivated many Malaysians, and I can attest to this as almost everyone I know either owns one, or knows someone who owns one. Now for the 2024 model year, Porsche is unveiling the Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Cayenne S available in regular, coupe and E-Hybrid guises.


Featuring many new changes including a new and improved chassis, refined looks both inside and out and, of course, new technology and features. The more feature packed and better equipped Porsche Cayenne S also features a bigger 12.6 inch infotainment screen and a more comprehensive list of safety features.

The new 2024 Porsche Cayenne models will also see the addition of a heavily revised 4-litre biturbo V8 engine to replace the outgoing V6 in the Cayenne S. The new engine makes 474PS of power and 600Nm of torque which accelerates the Cayenne SUV from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.7 seconds on to a top speed of 273km/h.


On top of that, the E-Hybrid version of the 2024 Porsche Cayenne, it is powered by a 3-litre V6 engine paired to an electric motor that produces a combined total output of 470PS of power and offers an electric range of up to 90km. It also features a new 11kW on-board charger for shorter charging times.

So, aside from better looks, better performance, a cleaner interior and more technology than ever before, the 2024 Porsche Cayenne represents a modern automotive compromise that I personally wish the world would opt for instead of going fully electric.

Not that I have anything against electrification but as most people already know, fully electric vehicles are not as good for the environment as some may have you believe, but that is a story for another day. Either way, I have already stated many times that I think hybridisation is better than electrification for a number of reasons and I’m glad Porsche is going hybrid with the Cayenne instead of fully electric for now.


So when do you guys think we will see the new 2024 Porsche Cayenne models in Malaysia?
