34mpg Diesel Porsche Cayenne announced

A new model of the Porsche Cayenne range has been announced which will house a powerful 4.2 V8 diesel engine and returning 34mpg.

The new Porsche Cayenne S Diesel offers a compelling combination of dynamic performance and efficiency. The new addition to the range can sprint from 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds, and on to a top speed of 157mph.

This is balanced by fuel consumption of 34 mpg on the NEDC and emissions of 218 g/km CO2. Aiding efficiency and comfort is the auto start/stop function; the Cayenne S Diesel is the world’s only V8 diesel SUV to offer this feature.

The Cayenne S Diesel has been developed to deliver a characteristic Porsche driving experience, with dynamic performance and sound reminiscent of a sports car. In particular, the smooth-running properties and resonant vocal quality of the eight-cylinder engine attain a level comparable to that expected from a Porsche V8.

An all-wheel drive system delivers the dynamic qualities of a rear-wheel drive car, together with its inherent benefits in terms of handling and precision. Torque is directed to the front wheels precisely according to the driving situation to improve stability and traction. The optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) further hones this dynamic performance.

The new Cayenne S Diesel takes on the role of a long-distance champion with aplomb. Based on its fuel consumption with a 100-litre fuel tank, the car can be potentially driven for over 745 miles without having to stop to refuel.

It will arrive in Porsche Centres in January 2013 and costs from £58,243.
