The all-new Porsche Cayenne has arrived in Australia, launching with a three-variant range priced between $116,000 and $239,400.

The 2018 Cayenne  features a new light-weight aluminium body, newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, electronically-adjustable suspension, the latest-generation of Porsche’s infotainment suite, active aerodynamics and active all-wheel-drive – which allows drivers to switch between Normal, Sport, Sport Plus and custom drive mode settings.

It also pinches some inspiration from its sleeker 911 sibling including staggered tyre sizes and optional rear-wheel steering.

The entry-level Cayenne is powered by a 250kW 3.0-litre turbo V6 petrol which helps it accelerate to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds - or just 5.9 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. The Aussie version comes with additional standard features including ParkAssist with surround view and Lane Change Assist.

Next up is the Cayenne S, priced from $155,100, and powered by a 2.9-litre biturbo V6 that produces 324kW. Despite its size, the Cayenne S reaches 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, which can be trimmed to 4.6 seconds if fitted with Sport Chrono.

Meanwhile, the range-topping Cayenne Turbo has a beastly 4.0-litre twin-turbo V6 at its heart that generates 404kW and massive 770Nm - more stonk than the 911 Turbo. This will blast away from zero to 100km/h in a mere 4.1 seconds, or a barely-believable 3.9 seconds with Sport Chrono.

Additional standard features for the local S and Turbo variants include a panoramic sunroof, while the Turbo also gains ambient lighting, seat ventilation and four-zone climate control.
