PORSCHE CAYENNE S DIESEL
Let diesel battle commence. Porsche unveils rival for BMW M Performance SUVs
Ergo, here we have the new-for-2013 Cayenne S Diesel. To be sold alongside the existing V6 diesel, the 'S' offers a significant step-up in performance, as suitably befits the badge.
Porsche quotes a 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds for the Cayenne S Diesel along with a respectable 34mpg combined and 218 g/km. Combined with a 100-litre tank, Porsche claims a range of up to 745 miles.
The S Diesel gets the same visual changes to differentiate it from lower models as the petrol derivative. These include S badges, silver brake calipers and black intake grilles.
The Cayenne S Diesel goes on sale in January. The price, before you delve into the veritable treasure chest that is the Porsche options list, is £58,243. Its nearest rival, the BMW X5 m50d, is £60,340.
