Cars of the week: aboard the restyled Porsche Cayenne

Arrived at mid-career, the Cayenne benefits from an aesthetic upgrade, but also technical with, in particular, a largely modernized cabin. The proof with the discovery of the E-Hybrid version.




Launched at the end of 2017, the third generation of the Cayenne is getting a makeover, in order to regain control against ever more numerous and tough rivals. The best-selling German manufacturer (1.2 million units sold since the first opus in 2002), the SUV is evolving in small steps on the outside. The bow sports a new hood, a unique shield and headlights modeled on those of the Taycan. At the rear, we notice the continuous headlamp strip, 911 style. So many subtle modifications that give it more elegance and sportiness.

Launch: July 2023

Petrol engines: from 353 to 474 hp

Hybride rechargeable : 470 ch

From : €91,350



On board, the arrival of the multimedia system borrowed from the Taycan gives the crossover a head start again, which now gives pride of place to digital with even, as an option, a 10.9 ‘/27.7 cm touch screen facing to the passenger. Finally, in addition to alterations to the running gear, all the blocks are gaining muscle. The entry-level turbo V 6 goes from 340 to 353 hp and the Cayenne S swaps its 440 hp V 6 for a 474 hp V 8. Finally, the E-Hybrid displays 470 hp against 468 hp before and a larger battery (from 17.9 to 25.9 kWh), which should significantly increase its all-electric autonomy. 1. 698 dm3 for the thermal Cayenne.

A special edition for the Kuga

Pending its restyling (end of 2023), the Ford is available in a special series, Graphite Tech Edition, available with the 2. 5 hybrid E 85 of 190 hp and the PHEV of 225 hp. Based on the ST-Line Xe t finish, which costs €3,500 more, this new top of the range boosts its look (exclusive Gray Matter colour, 19′ rims in shiny black, red brake calipers, aluminum pedals, etc.) and enriches its equipment (head-up display, 180° front camera, adaptive cruise control, etc.). Deliveries will begin in June, starting at €49,300.

American pick-ups go electric

After Ford and its F 150 Lightning, Chevrolet and its Silverado EV, it’s around RAM (Stellantis group) to announce its 1500 REV electric pick-up. Equipped with huge batteries (168 or 229 kWh, the equivalent of 3 to 4 Renault Zoe!), it promises up to 800 km of autonomy. Launching in fall 2024.
