If you’re fine with a two-row, mid-sized SUV capable of sprinting from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in just 4.8 seconds, the regular 2020 Cayenne is best for you. Topping at 252 kilometers per hour, the base Cayenne is a great choice for its price.
For Php 6, 350,000.00, you’ll get a turbocharged V6 with 3.0-liter capacity and 355 horsepower. This, paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive makes an irresistible road beast indeed.
With that, you’ll also get ground clearance of 8.2in. You can also ford water reaching up to 19.6in deep. So if you’re thinking that the Porsche Cayenne can’t take the muddy, watery roads of the Philippines and is for pure show-off only, we’re here to say you’re wrong.

Although, heated seats won’t really be necessary for our tropical country. But if you’d like more features, you can get the Premium package for an additional $6470.
This includes a panoramic sunroof along with a Bose premium surround-sound system. But aside from that, there are other possible add-ons that can tempt you for a few several thousand pesos more.

There is also a plug-in hybrid model that makes 516-pound feet of torque and 455 horsepower. It comes with a 14.1 kWh battery that can be charged using a 3.6 kW onboard charger. A 7.2 kW unit can also do the job. The Sport Chrono pack has choosable drive modes as well as improved acceleration.
