2015 Porsche Cayenne Facelift spied testing on the Nürburgring

We saw the Porsche Cayenne facelift for the first time in early April testing in heavy rain. Testing continues and here are the first shots from the Nürburgring race track.

Changes will be similar to the recently introduced Panamera facelift – both exterior and under the skin.

Main exterior changes include new bumpers, new LED daytime lights in the bumper, new redesigned headlights, new air intakes in the bumper and new tail lights.

Biggest updates are under the bonnet, where the Cayenne will go through a similar change as the updated Panamera.

The most interesting addition will be the new Cayenne S E-Hybrid model, replacing the current Cayenne S Hybrid.

The Cayenne S E-Hybrid will use the same plug-in hybrid powertrain found in the Panamera S E-Hybrid, with a system output of 410bhp, combining a new 316bhp 3.0-litre V6 and a 95bhp electric motor. Performance and fuel economy numbers are expected to be very similar to the Panamera S E-Hybrid that delivers an impressive 91mpg, with CO2 emissions of 71 g/km. Purely on EV mode, the range is up to 22 miles and it can reach speeds up to 84mph.

Also the naturally aspirated V8 engine in Cayenne S will be replaced with new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine developing 420 horsepower.

The current entry level 240 hp diesel is also expected to be replaced with a more powerful unit.
