The 2020 Porsche Cayenne will be unchanged for the next season. The German carmaker will make it exciting by adding a coupe version of the SUV. This version will make the vehicle more aggressive. Of course, more expensive as well. This is another model that will join the lineup of the SUV launched in 2018. So, the new Cayenne will offer standard, hybrid, S, Turbo, and Turbo S versions besides the new Coupe.
In this review, we will try to make a difference between each model of this performance-oriented high-luxury SUV. Definitely, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe will be under the spotlight because it is new. It will also be available with S trim package, meaning the vehicle puts extra power from its engine. Besides the different trim levels, the SUV will offer different drivetrain configurations and power outputs. The new Coupe version will use the existing engines.
2020 Porsche Cayenne vs Cayenne Coupe
We can spot at least 10 notable differences between the standard and the new model. Looking up front, it is not easy to pick which one is a coupe. Most of the front fascia is the same, including grille, bumper, and headlamps. But, when you take the side view, it is easy to recognize the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe. A-pillar and windscreen are suffering and the vehicle is 0.8 inches lower than the standard version.
Of course, the biggest modification in on the back of the roof. That is not all since the rear end brings even more. Fenders are wider and the rear tailgate is raked. The Coupe SUV is not offering wipers on the rear window, but there is a fancy lip spoiler. Standard spoiler is adaptive. Above 55 mph it extends up to 5.5 inches. The interior is visually the same. On the other hand, rear seats are not offering so much space. Also, the sloped roofline cuts the third row, which is available for the standard SUV. Panoramic glass roof comes with the new version of the vehicle, while you can turn it into carbon roof if you like. Finally, the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe costs $10k more than the basic SUV.
Engines, S Models
The base version of the 2020 Porsche Cayenne, including the new Coupe form, will use a 3.0-liter V6 engine. Turbocharged, the drivetrain puts out 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox is standard all across the Cayenne’s lineup and it sends power exclusively to all wheels. The S package installs the 2.9-liter twin-turbo engine. This kind of V6 unit is adding 100 hp more. Again, the Coupe will be available with this powertrain as well. Furthermore, it delivers 405 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the Cayenne Turbo is top of the range model. It leads the lineup in power and exclusive offer inside the cockpit. A 4.0-liter V8 is under the hood. The twin-turbo system makes it produce 540 hp and 570 pound-feet of torque.
The 2020 Porsche Cayenne will be one of the most versatile luxurious SUVs in the world. The vehicle is not offering only the conventional setups, but also a couple of hybrid variants. The base of the 2020 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid will be a 3.0-liter V6 unit. With the boost from the electric motor, this version achieves 455 hp and 515 lb-ft of torque. That is 120 ponies more. That is not all since engineers are electrifying a 4.0-l engine. In this case, the total power raises to 670 hp and 630 lb-ft of twist.
2020 Porsche Cayenne GTS
The new coupe version is not going to be the only change in the lineup. According to experts with reliable sources, we can be sure the new 2020 Porsche Cayenne GTS model will arrive somewhere next year. This is going to be an upgrade, probably coming after the first quarter of 2020. Still, we don’t have anything on the GTS, except it is going to take the position between the S and Turbo versions. Rumors are picking a V8 engine between two choices.
2020 Mercedes GLE vs Porsche Cayenne
The biggest rival for the 2020 Porsche Cayenne will be the all-new Mercedes GLE. The MB is making its SUV more luxurious than ever. Well, there are also BMW X5 and Audi Q7, but these are not the high-end models that can get on the line with these two German products. Well, the BMW X6M is a rival to the new Cayenne Coupe, but only until some point. The level of luxury and the price are making the Porsche’s SUV out of the reach. The base model of the new version will be the same. It starts at $67,000, but the price raises pretty fast with each upgrade. Turbo is a $130k SUV. The GLE AMG won’t cost more than $120,000 before you upgrade it. The base model is around $60,000.
