2015 Porsche Cayenne facelift spied up close with less camouflage

We have seen the Porsche Cayenne facelift testing for some time now and here we have our latest and most revealing spy shots from Sweden, where the prototype was parked in front of a hotel. The prototype was nicely hidden from everyone with a grey cover, which suddenly blew away, revealing the updated Cayenne up close.

Typical to Porsche, the changes are not very big and we can see up close the new front bumper with new air intakes, new headlights similar to Macan, new daytime LED running lights, new bonnet, lightly updated rear bumper, taillights and new exhaust tips.

The biggest changes will be under the bonnet, where we can expect similar changes as the updated Panamera range.

Under the bonnet we can expect similar updates as the recently updated Panamaera.

The new Cayenne S E-Hybrid model will replace the current Cayenne S Hybrid, combining a new 316bhp 3.0-litre V6 and a 95bhp electric motor. In the Panamera S E-Hybrid it 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.

The naturally aspirated V8 engine in Cayenne S will be replaced with a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine with 414bhp.

The 237bhp V6 diesel is likely also being replaced with a 296bhp unit as in the Panamera diesel.

The Cayenne GTS will likely continue to use a naturally-aspirated V8 just as the facelifted Panamera GTS did.

The Cayenne Turbo and Turbo S will continue to use a 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that in the Turbo S will be updated to produce 562bhp.

This Cayenne facelift could debut as soon as early next month at the 2014 New York Auto Show or 2014 Beijing Auto Show later that month.
