Though, thanks to coupe roof design – head room is reduced by 20mm, but the SUV looks more muscular thanks to broad shoulders. Compensating this reduced roof line, Porsche has set the passenger seat 30mm lower.

These include: weight-reduced 22-inch GT Design wheels, carbon fibre roof, seat centres in classic checked fabric, as well as carbon and Alcantara accents in the interior. For the Cayenne Turbo Coupe, a sports exhaust system is also available. As Cayenne Coupe is positioned as an everyday SUV, it offers 625 litre boot capacity which is further expandable to 1540 litres by folding the rear seats down.
