Cayenne gets fresh

27 Jul, 2006 1:00am

Here's a disguise that isn't fooling anyone. These are the best pictures yet of the facelifted Porsche Cayenne, and clearly show how the model will look.

Our spies caught the sporty off-roader being put through its paces in Germany with a minimal disguise. And while changes to the metalwork have been kept to a minimum, buyers will still get distinctive styling when the big off-roader goes on sale.

The most signifcant alterations are to the nose, where new headlights and a more aggressive front bumper, com­plete with wide-set foglamps, appear.

Another less obvious change with the nose is the increased overhang ahead of the front wheels, giving greater protection to pedestrians in the event of an accident.

Meanwhile, at the back, there's a fresh bumper, the lights are resculpted to give a sharper look, and a neat roof spoiler also makes an appearance.

Improved interior trim and subtle tweaks to the suspension to boost handling are also expec­ted. The high-performance SUV is set to hit showrooms later this year.
