For example, the facelifted Cayenne Coupe tested this time is an entry-level model. , but it can show a performance momentum that is no less than that of the Cayenne Turbo GT...

The optional high-resolution LED matrix headlights are arranged in four projector light groups, and the blackened style highlights the four-eye daytime running light design.

Compared with the previous SUV version, which mainly emphasized the improvement of luxury and technological atmosphere, the facelifted Cayenne Coupe tested this time is obviously closer to the dynamic style, especially the SportDesign aerodynamic package, GT Design wheels and Ice Gray car. The color is immediately reminiscent of the old Cayenne Turbo GT that impressed us with its powerful performance level. Such distinctive performance momentum is mainly due to the rich option list that can be highly customized. At the same time, the total price of options for this car has also reached an astonishing 3.244 million yuan.

The front of the car is replaced with a SportDesign style front bumper and is decorated with carbon fiber trim, which makes the visual domineering level rise sharply.
The 22-inch GT Design wheels are painted gray, and the tire sizes are 285/40R22 at the front and 315/35R22 at the rear.

Among the extensive list of options, the one that adds the most points to the sporty feel of the whole car is the lightweight carbon fiber sports package that costs over one million yuan and is only available for Coupe. In addition to the above-mentioned appearance aerodynamic package and wheel rim style, You can also see that the front air dam, rearview mirror outer cover and rear lower spoiler are all decorated with carbon fiber decorative panels, and a lightweight carbon fiber composite roof is used to help reduce the weight of the car and the overall center of gravity. At the same time, the interior Part of the performance atmosphere is created through a carbon fiber trim kit, as well as the interior roof and GT sports car-style steering wheel covered with Race-Tex material. Finally, the entire center seat of the car is covered with plaid fabric material. , further adding to the uniqueness and retro sports car style.

The rearview mirror covers and roof are both made of carbon fiber, which not only adds a performance atmosphere but also contributes to lightweight performance.
The facelifted Cayenne Coupe also sports a 3D three-dimensional taillight design, while the signature fastback rear line remains unchanged.
The sports car-shaped dark copper-colored quad exhaust tailpipes and carbon fiber lower spoiler complement each other very well, creating a performance momentum that is no less than that of a purebred sports car.

In order to show the diversity of personalization and technological equipment, the test car adopts an electronic compass style that is more suitable for travel in the sports car chronograph package chronograph part, and uses a deep and delicate burgundy color combination with the seat belt. In recent years, In addition to the ADAS active driving assistance functions such as the ACC smart cruise system that consumers attach great importance to, there is even a very rare night vision assistance system. On roads with poor visibility, it can be replaced with a 12.6-inch curved surface after a minor facelift. The digital instrument screen can detect moving objects outside the headlight illumination range in advance, and coupled with the passenger infotainment display screen in front of the co-pilot, it can fully meet different needs from convenience and safety to multimedia entertainment.

The refreshed interior layout emphasizes digital simplicity, and the Race-Tex-wrapped GT sports steering wheel and carbon fiber trim are also quite eye-catching.
The new 12.6-inch curved digital instrument not only provides a variety of style choices, but also integrates the optional night vision assist system display screen.

The facelifted Cayenne Coupe is still equipped with a 3.0L V6 turbocharged engine, but after re-tuning and optimization, the maximum output has increased from 340hp/45.9kgm to 353hp/51.0kgm. The improvement may not seem big, but it has the same eight-speed automatic manual. Driven by the transmission, the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h can be shortened by 0.3 seconds to 5.7 seconds. Even with the optional upgrade of 22-inch large-size tires, the car can still show brisk and full acceleration; benefiting from the optional With the dual support of active air pressure suspension and PDCC dynamic chassis control system, this car can improve the comfort of daily driving and the stability of high-speed cornering like the SUV version previously tested, with a lower center of gravity. The wider rear axle setting can bring more direct and clear driving feedback, and the driving pleasure will naturally be improved.

The sports car chronograph package chronograph can choose an electronic compass style that is more suitable for leisure travel, and the background color can also be customized according to the owner's preferences.
The dual front seats maintain the standard eight-way electrically adjustable sports seats, but the central seat surface is covered with a plaid fabric material that has a slightly retro sports car feel.
The maximum output of the equipped 3.0L V6 turbo engine has been increased to 353hp/51.0kgm, and it can complete 0~100km/h in just 5.7 seconds.
