The overall look has been enhanced beyond the ordinary. "Despite its significantly extended standard equipment, the Cayenne weighs up to 65 kilograms less than its predecessor and remains perfectly suited to off-road use". Around the back is where changes are substantial - the new Cayenne's rear end is heavily inspired by the latest Panamera and sports similar looking LED lights end-to-end.
