Premium Package Adds More Kit To The Porsche Cayenne

Many attractive add-ons are now combined into one convenient optional package.  

Malaysian buyers looking to add a bit more sportiness and luxury on their Porsche Cayennes can now do so by just ticking only one extra box on the options list. Thanks to Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) recently reintroducing a new Premium Package for Porsche’s premium SUV.

This new Premium Package for the Cayenne adds a significant amount of desirable kit, including the highly desirable air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). Thus making the Cayenne handle more like a Porsche should, while maintaining the desired ride comfort of a luxury SUV. To distinguish it apart from regular Cayennes, 21-inch RS Spyder wheels are also standard with this Premium package. 

On the interior, a 14 speaker premium BOSE Surround Sound System with 200W active subwoofer is among the kit that comes with the Premium package. As is the four-zone climate control and the ParkAssist with Surround View 360º camera system. 

The Porsche Cayenne is powered by a turbocharged 3.0 litre V6 that outputs 340 PS and 450 Nm of torque. Drive is sent to all four wheels of the large SUV through an 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission. 

Prices of the Premium Package-optioned Cayennes have yet to be officially announced yet, but it should be significantly higher than the RM 680,000 starting price of the base Cayenne, considering the amount of additional kit that comes with said package. Moreover, although pre-orders have already begun, deliveries will only begin in 2021. Meaning that it will not be eligible a significant discount from the PENJANA sales tax relief scheme. 

That said, a four year warranty as well as four years free maintenance package is included in the high price. So at least that will amount to four years of trouble free Porsche motoring.
