Porsche PHL unboxes market-specific 2022 Cayenne Exclusiv


PORSCHE PHILIPPINES has unveiled a country-exclusive iteration of the new 2022 Porsche Cayenne. Dubbed the Exclusiv, it is said to “(transform) into an even more practical, luxurious and performance-oriented sports car for the family.” Now available at Porsche Center Philippines, the special trim has a features complement meant to appeal to the “discerning expectations of consumers” here.

The Cayenne, which globally surpassed one million units in cumulative worldwide sales last year, gets intelligent technologies like Park Assist with Surround View, which alerts the driver of obstacles in front and rear of the vehicle via audio and visual warnings, as well as provide a virtual overhead image of the vehicle’s environment; and the Porsche Entry & Drive, which automatically allows entry into the vehicle and access to its luggage compartment. Supplementing these are a four-zone automatic climate control system and the 20-inch Cayenne Sport Wheels.

These add to an extended list of standard equipment, which includes LED main headlights with PDLS, LED taillight strip, the Porsche Advanced Cockpit operating concept, the Porsche Communication Management with navigation module, and Connect Plus Module. Among items that are also available are the Porsche Active Suspension Management air suspension, automatically dimming mirrors, and a Bose Surround Sound System.

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Exclusiv combines typical Porsche performance with everyday practicality. An intelligent lightweight construction is complemented by a turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine producing 340hp and 450Nm of torque. This extracts spritely performance from the SUV — allowing it to attain 100kph from a standstill in only 6.2 seconds, onto a top rate of 245kph.

The Cayenne Exclusiv boasts an improved eight-speed Tiptronic S gearbox and its shorter response times and sportier ratios in the lower gears — resulting in enhanced on-road performance and off-road capabilities. A tall eighth gear ratio ensures low torque output, optimized fuel consumption and relaxed driving conditions.

Based “heavily” on the iconic 911, the Porsche Cayenne offers comfortable seating for up to five, along with a capacious cargo capacity. It has standard active all-wheel drive and Porsche 4D Chassis Control — both fitted to the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Exclusiv. Combined, the systems make the vehicle agile, secure, and safe to drive.

Amid the pandemic, the Stuttgart-headquartered brand posted a record first half in sales this year. It delivered 153,656 vehicles worldwide, representing a 31% leap versus the same period in 2020. “The significant demand in growth spanned all model series and global sales regions, with the most successful model being the Cayenne. From January to June this year, a total of 44,050 units of the Cayenne were sold, 12% more than last year. While sales in the US and China continue to grow, Porsche’s deliveries in Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East increased by a quarter overall, with the Cayenne comprising the bulk of sales,” added Porsche.
