The V-shaped front and rear line as well as the V-shaped engine compartment with its elevated wings, the muscular lines of the wheel arches, the distinctive headlights, and the striking exhaust tailpipes all spell out the name 'Porsche' at very first sight. Seen from outside, the Cayenne differs from the Cayenne S through its model designation on the tailgate, the black eloxy brake callipers, and 17-inch light-alloy wheels in 10-spoke design.

The power of the six-cylinder engine is transmitted to the wheels in standard trim by a newly developed six-speed manual gearbox combined with an innovative assistance system: The Porsche Drive-Off Assistant or PDOA for short makes things much easier for the driver when setting out on an uphill gradient, securing the vehicle in position by automatically intervening in the brakes.Once the driver engages the clutch the system takes back brake pressure and the Cayenne sets off smoothly and safely en route to its destination. Porsche's six-speed Tiptronic S transmission is available as an alternative to the manual gearbox.

The chassis and suspension of the Cayenne ensure outstanding agility both in sports motoring and on rough terrain. This is guaranteed from the start by the axle concept with the large-size double track control arm axle running on a subframe at the front,whilst the rear axle is an elaborate multi-arm configuration. Long spring travel for offroad purposes is another special feature, with both air suspension and the variable PASM Porsche Active Suspension Management damping system available as an option.
