Our spy photographers recently caught the third-generation Porsche Cayenne testing on idyllic roads in Spain. Despite some camouflage, we can see the Cayenne doesn’t stray too far from its roots.
The new Cayenne looks much like its predecessor, bearing a similar long nose, raked roofline, and rear window spoiler. The prototype shows creases on the hood that are close together, although camouflage is hiding a few other key details up front. In back, the Cayenne is likely sporting a redesigned taillight cluster.
Expect the Cayenne to adopt a similar interior to the new 2017 Porsche Panamera. On that model, Porsche gravitated toward a cleaner cockpit design with fewer buttons. Instead, a large central touchscreen and touch-based controls on the center console dominate the interior design.
Porsche introduced the U.S. to the concept of an high-end luxury SUV when it brought out the Cayenne for the 2003 model year. The model wasn’t completely redesigned until the 2011 model year, gaining a new look and losing weight compared to the previous year. It’s unclear which model year will kick off the third generation of the Cayenne.
