The Porsche Cayenne was special because it was the first SUV ever from the famous German brand. It then became popular because of its looks (subjective), driveability and the level of comfort its cabin provided. In a way, its success paved the way for modern-day high-end luxury-performance SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus and the Bentley Bentayga. Talking about the Cayenne, the current pricing of the SUV in India is Rs. 1.58 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base model. However, what if you could own one of these machines at a price less than the base variant of a Toyota Fortuner. The video below by My Country My Ride shows just that, so take a look at the video before we discuss further.
Before we start talking about the Porsche Cayenne here, let us tell you the price of the Toyota Fortuner. The base variant of the Toyota Fortuner retails at 27.83 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This Cayenne, on the other hand, can be had yours for just Rs. 27.25 lakh. That’s quite a good deal for sure. To let you know, this is a 2010 model Porsche Cayenne finished in a shade of dark blue. It rides on gorgeous looking 20-inch alloys which are original Porsche units. The Porsche Cayenne is known as a luxury off-roader and can take its occupants over any terrain wrapped in a cocoon of luxury.
It is powered by a 3.0-litre diesel engine that churns out 245 Bhp of power along with 550 Bhp of power. The diesel engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Cayenne featured here has an odometer reading of 60,732 km, which is not much for a car of its segment. It looks stellar, to say the least, and even though it is nearly a decade old, it does not show its age yet.
Talking about its features, this Cayenne comes with beige interiors with wood and satin chrome inserts to add a premium feel. The dashboard and the instrument console look very premium and are typical Porsche styled units, especially the 5 pod instrument console. The leather-wrapped interiors and upholstery scream luxury all over the cabin. It comes with multiple driving modes, a proper 4×4 drivetrain along with cruise control and a 360-degree camera. Other features include dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof which adds to the premium-ness of the SUV, 6 airbags, Bose audio system and hill-hold support among others.
The steering gets paddle shifters mounted on it which are a bit different from the regular ones we see on other cars. On a whole, this Porsche Cayenne is a 2010 model powered by a diesel engine which has done around 60,000 km till date. The asking price is pegged at Rs. 27.25 lakh, which is further negotiable.
