2018 Porsche Cayenne redesign
Even though there is a camouflage on the spy photos of the upcoming Cayenne, we can conclude that the SUV design changes are not significant. You can probably talk about the evolutionary changes, rather than a revolutionary.
The new Cayenne will most likely get updated headlights, optional completely LED. The front bumper will get a new design, with integrated LED DRLs. In profile, it will look a little sportier – due to lower roofline in the rear, as well as a short rear overhang. In the rear, there will be a new, narrower rear lights. In general, the Cayenne will be more like a more compact Macan.
So far there are no data on the interior of the new SUV, but experts agree that we should expect a completely redesigned interior similar to Panamera in style. This means that instead of tons of buttons appear one big screen – the so-called media hub. The solution suggested itself for a long time, besides rivals have it for a long. This will make the interior more minimalist and cozy.
Steering wheel, air intakes, center console, front and rear seats will also get a new design.
