This Is The New 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupé

The new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupé draws its technical highlights from the latest Cayenne and wraps it all in an emotional and striking swept-back body.

Trends exist to satisfy needs and if we’re sure of anything, it’s that the new Porsche Cayenne Coupé will quench the market’s craving for sportier-looking Sport Utility Vehicles. In true Porsche fashion however, the 2020 Cayenne Coupé is more than just a sloping roofline.

We’ve recently driven the new 2019 Porsche Cayenne, on a few occasions actually, and although it’s as good or better than ever, it has possibly matured a little too much. It’s as though Porsche planned it this way in order to make more room for this new, more dynamic and fun iteration of the flagship SUV.

The Cayenne Coupé gets a completely revised rear end, starting from the rear doors, on top of the different roofline. In fact, the roof has been lowered by 20 millimetres. Along with the new rear doors, the fenders and shoulders are broader by 18 millimetres. The lower roof, central positioning of the rear number plate into the bumper, and wider rear haunches make the Coupé seem more muscular and closer to the ground.

Still, on the subject of the roof, it will be a large panoramic fixed glass unit as standard, with a carbon fibre roof panel offered as an option. At the rear end of the roofline, the roof spoiler combines with a new adaptive rear spoiler as part of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). The spoiler raises by 135 mm at speeds of 90 km/h and higher.

Getting to these speeds will no more than a few seconds as it will be available in two versions. The base 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupé will be powered by turbocharged 335-horsepower V6 while the Cayenne Turbo Coupé will fly thanks to a twin-turbocharged 541-horsepower V8.

The new Cayenne Coupé is available to order now and will arrive in Canada in the fourth quarter of 2019. Pricing starts at $86,400 for the Cayenne Coupé and $148,000 for the Cayenne Turbo Coupé.
