2015 Porsche Cayenne facelift test group spied cold weather testing

Last week we showed you a big group of Porsche 911 facelift prototypes from snowy Sweden.

This time a Cayenne facelift test group was caught cold weather testing, benchmarking against the current Cayenne.

On some of the pictures you can see the current generation model next to the facelifted model.

The updated Cayenne will go through typical updates, showing a new front bumper with new air intakes, new headlights, new daytime LEDs, new bonnet, lightly updated rear bumper, taillights and exhaust tips.

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. The same hybrid unit in the Panamera S E-Hybrid 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 a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine with 420 horsepower. The Cayenne GTS will likely continue to use a naturally-aspirated V8 just as the facelifted Panamera GTS.

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.
