  • New Porsche Cayenne spotted
  • Facelifted model
  • Subtly updated design
  • Interior overhaul expected
  • Likely to go on sale in 2022

The Porsche Cayenne is set to receive some mid-life upgrades, including a revised design and an upgraded interior towards the end of 2021 or in early 2022. These pictures show a prototype version of this luxurious Mercedes GLE and BMW X5 alternative undergoing testing.

New Porsche Cayenne design

Don’t go expecting the new Porsche Cayenne to look radically different from the current car. The prototype you can see in these photos is only wearing a small amount of camouflage, suggesting Porsche hasn’t been too busy fiddling with the bodywork underneath.

The new car’s expected to get a similar set of horizontal daytime-running lights set into an imposing set of three front grilles, while the rounded headlights will have a slightly pointier outline where they meet the bonnet.

Porsche’s made bigger changes at the back of the new Cayenne (although you’ll still need to be a bit of a Porsche nerd to spot them.) The boot lid has a new smoother design and the number plate has been moved down so it sits in a recess in the rear bumper – just like on the Porsche Cayenne Coupe.

New Porsche Cayenne interior

Don’t expect the current car’s interior (shown here) to change radically.

Just like on the outside, the new Porsche Cayenne isn’t likely to sport any radical changes inside. Its slick, sporty cabin will be mostly carried over for the new car, although it’s possible Porsche will add a few 911-inspired touches, such as a new gear lever and a tweaked infotainment system.

New Porsche Cayenne engines and driving

The current Porsche Cayenne is available in standard, S, E-hybrid, GTS, Turbo, Turbo S E-Hybrid guise, and it’s likely the new model will, too.

However, Porsche may update the Cayenne to reflect the recently updated Panamera range and include a new Turbo S model. If so, this new super-fast SUV could come with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine with around 630hp.

New Porsche Cayenne price and release date

The new Porsche Cayenne isn’t expected to be revealed until late 2021 and won’t reach showrooms until 2022. Entry-level cars will likely set you back from around £60,000, while the most expensive Turbo S E-Hybrid cars will still cost in the region of £130,000. Should a Turbo S model go on sale, you can expect it to cost around £5,000 less than the Turbo S E-Hybrid model.
