Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) the authorized importer of Porsche vehicles for Malaysia has introduced the new Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition, that’s easily identifiable by its distinctive sporty appearance. Porsche uses the ‘Platinum Edition’ designation for selected model series that are offered for a limited time.
The Cayenne Platinum Edition sports large 20″ wheels in RS Spyder design that are housed in wider wheel arches. Meanwhile, the exclusive interior is dominated by leather sport seats with electric 8-way adjustment, Alcantara centre panels and the Porsche crest on all headrests.
“The introduction of this Platinum Edition is a celebration of the success of the Cayenne model line,” said Arnt Bayer, Chief Executive Officer of Sime Darby Auto Performance. “Many premium quality features are now included as a standard for a superior sporty look. It is a fitting tribute to this sports car among the SUVs.”
The model’s expanded standard features improve comfort and safety; standard equipment in the Cayenne Platinum Edition includes Bi-xenon headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), Power Steering Plus and ParkAssist in the front and back. The latter system not only uses an audible beep to indicate the distance to objects or other cars in front of and behind the vehicle, it also graphically depicts the direct surroundings on the central display.
A non-metallic black and white finish is standard, with Deep Black, Purpurite, Mahogany, Carrera White or Rhodium Silver metallic paints available as an option. The broadened wheel arches also come in the chosen colour scheme. The model’s exclusive appearance is rounded out by a high-gloss exterior package.
Entering the vehicle, the special status of the Cayenne is plain to see with stainless steel door sills with “Platinum Edition” lettering; a beautifully designed analogue clock rests atop the dashboard. Additionally, the Platinum Edition models come with the latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system that includes online navigation, and the Connect Plus module.
Powering the Cayenne Platinum Edition is the 3.6-litre V6 engine which has an output of 300 hp with a rated fuel consumption 9.2 litres per 100 km, depending on the tires fitted.
The retail base price for the Cayenne Platinum Edition starts from RM 698,000 including all applicable duties, except registration fee, road tax and insurance. The vehicle is covered by a 4-year warranty and free maintenance package. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
