More up-spec Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition models join the range

Platinum Edition versions of Porsche's flagship SUV get individual styling tweaks, and two more Cayenne derivatives get the treatment.

Last year, Porsche spiced up its Cayenne with new Platinum Edition spec models introducing sporty and unique styling additons to the standard Cayenne and the S E-Hybrid. Now, a further two models get the Platinum treatment - the Cayenne S and the Cayenne S Diesel. 

The Platinum Edition models are marked out on the outside with racy Sport Edition 21-inch alloy wheels housed in wider wheel arches. Glossy exterior detailing and privacy glass complete the look, and alongside standard black and white paint colours, five metallic finishes are available.

Inside, the Platinum Edition brings along a host of standard kit. All models get dynamic Xenon headlights, front and rear Park Assist, heated electric leather and Alcantara sports seats with Porsche crests, the Connect Plus sat-nav and infotainment module and a Bose surround sound system. Bespoke door sills and auto-dim mirrors all-round also feature.

However, the Platinum edition cars only introduce visual changes and despite their sportier appearances, performance stays on par with their less flashy equivalents. 

In terms of pricing, the diesel Cayenne Platinum Edition costs from £55,154, while the S E-Hybrid is £66,919. That's £2,465 and £2,107 more than the standard models respectively. 

As for the new additions, the Cayenne S Platinum will start in the UK from £64,802, with the Cayenne S Diesel Platinum coming in at £66,847. Order books for the new models are open now, with first deliveries taking place in the UK this spring.
