Porsche Cajun SUV

Brand New Porsche Cajun SuvHere is the baby Porsche SUV coupé thats next set to wear the famous Porsche badge. It will be called the Cajun and should slot into the Porsche range below the Cayenne. The Porsche Cajun will go head-to-head with the Range Rover Evoque and the BMW X4 which will be revealed in 2013. The Cajun will be the first car developed under Porsches new owner, Volkswagen. The Porsche Cajun should have a lot in common with the Audi Q5 as the Porsche Cayenne was created alongside the VW Touareg and Audi Q7. The Cajun should be slightly lower and shorter than the Audi Q5, but wider by 9cm, giving the Porsche Cajun a sporty but imposing stance. Porsche will try to distance the Cajun further from other models in the Porsche family by offering it initially as a three-door version only. All engines will be from Audi, with buyers getting a choice of two diesels and two petrol units customers will also get the choice of a petrol-electric hybrid. The Cajun hybrid model will be based on the forthcoming green Audi Q5 will feature a 2.0 litre engine producing 210bhp, this will be mated to a 47bhp electric motor. Entry level Cajun will get either a 2.0 litre petrol turbo producing 237bhp or a 2.0 litre TDi which will produce 188bhp. The top of the range cars will get either a 3.0-litre TFSI petrol V6, producing 328bhp, or a 3.0 litre TDi producing 237bhp and 550Nm of torque. The flagship Porsche Cajuns are expected to do 0-62mph in around six seconds. The Cajun will come with a six -speed manual gearbox or a seven speed auto gearbox, The Cajun will feature a 4x4 wheel drive system which will be set up mainly for tarmac use, this means the main off road features will be limited to hill descent and all-weather tyres. Although the Cajun will be heavily based on the Audi Q5, Porsche will fit its own unique suspension, braking and damper set ups. Porsche will also recalibrate the stability control system for a sportier drive and as an option Porsche will offer their Active Stability Management, to control the new dampers. Sports Chrono will be an option too. The package brings a sportier exhaust system to increase engine power, launch control and a PDK gearbox. Volkswagens design chief Walter deSilva aims to move away from such designs as the Panamera. The latest Porsche Cajun image looks striking with a low, swooping roofline and short overhangs. On the Inside it will feature just four seats but it promises to have more luxury than the Q5. The Cajuns centre console has been designed to cocoon the driver and give the driver the feeling of a small and nimble car. The design will help ensure the model looks and feels like a true Porsche when it goes on sale in 2013, Prices will start from £27,980 and will go up to £41,404 respectively. The entry-level Cajun is likely to be more expensive than the base Land Rover Evoque, which will cost around £30,000.
