Porsche Cayenne Local Assembled Selling Price Is RM550k
Say hello to a local assembled Cayenne!
Porsche Malaysia has just given the Malaysian luxury SUV buyer segment a jolt. Yes, with the announcement of a local assembly starting, first time outside of Germany, the first model to be rolled out will be the very popular Cayenne.
This is not the ‘jolt’. The announcement of its selling price of RM550,000 is the jolt. This makes the Porsche ownership more accessible and pushes the selling prices of used recondition units from AP holders to even lower levels.
Recon dealers might even stop importing and selling the Cayenne with this move and we applaud this.
Porsche in Malaysia is represented by Sime Darby Auto Performance. Almost twenty years and three generations on, the iconic Cayenne Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) elevates its brand-typical performance with functional off-road capabilities, couples an elegant interior with unparalleled comfort, and expresses a robust dynamism that puts it in a class of its own.
The Cayenne is Porsche best selling vehicle and more than a million units have been delivered worldwide to date.
Blazing a new trail
Today, Porsche confirms the Cayenne as the model chosen for local assembly in Kulim, Malaysia, with an enhanced standard equipment range specified exclusively for the Malaysian market.
This production expansion is the first of its kind outside of Europe, firmly underscoring the brand’s commitment to Malaysia and recognition of the potential for more multi-faceted development in the ASEAN region.
The new range of standard equipment adds previously optional content to the car, sharpening the appeal of the Cayenne within the local market.
Standard design highlights now include LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), LED taillights, a choice of three metallic paint colours with high-gloss black contrast accents and sporty 21-inch RS Spyder design wheels.
Inside, new standard features include a BOSE® Surround Sound System, two choices of leather upholstery colour-ways, four-zone climate control, 14-way adjustable comfort seats with memory function and electric roll-up sun-blinds for the rear windows.
Driver assistance systems are also enhanced with convenient technology features like Comfort Access, a Porsche Communication Management system with full HD 12-inch displays and ParkAssist with front, rear as well as surround views.
Smartphone integration with Apple® CarPlay and other intelligent Porsche Connect services are also featured as standard.
These upgrades combine with other features like Porsche Advanced Cockpit, multifunction sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles and a centre console with Direct Touch Control to make the Cayenne a truly stand-out option in its class.
First-ever specially-curated Exclusive Manufaktur Package
If customers desire even more exclusivity, they can also opt for the first-ever Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur Package, inspired by the brand’s bespoke customization programme.
Choosing this option applies a SportDesign Package, enhancing the car’s appearance with a unique front apron and more pronounced wheel-arch extensions; other exterior differentiators include darker-tinted headlights and taillights.
Performance is also enhanced with a sports exhaust system featuring unique sport tailpipes and double-tube tailpipe trim for a more commanding presence. At the touch of a button, the exhaust also emits an impressive soundtrack to complement more dynamic driving.
On request, a Carbon interior package can further be applied, changing the finishes on selected areas of the dashboard and door panel to carbon fibre to create a premium yet sporty ambience. A choice of sporty 22-inch rims are also optionally available.
Possibilities unleashed – just a click away
New possibilities are also unleashed on the digital front for Porsche Malaysia, as the brand allows customers to configure and book1) a Cayenne seamlessly online for the first time at mycayenne.online.
Besides personalising their sports car with the optional Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur Package, or with an impressive range of individual Porsche Tequipment items, customers will also be able to configure and order a special Porsche Design watch, available exclusively on this website.
To mark the debut of this first-ever digital ordering platform for Porsche customers in Malaysia, the brand is offering a Porsche Driver’s Selection voucher worth RM 911 for the first 50 orders placed online.
Pre-orders for the updated and enhanced Cayenne start now from RM550,000. First deliveries are estimated to begin by March 2022.
The brand will further expand its presence in Malaysia, complementing its facilities in Kuala Lumpur and Penang with a fourth dealership in Johor Bahru, which will open by mid-2022.
This expanded retail network perfectly complements the recently announced High-Performance Charging network in partnership with Shell, scheduled to be completed within the same timeframe to enable seamless electrified long-distance commuting between Malaysia and Singapore. A further extension of the corridor up to Thailand is planned by 2023.
