2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S – Notable Features
The most notable feature will be available on several 2009 Cayenne models – S, GTS, Turbo and Turbo S – can be equipped with the competition-derived ceramic brakes as long as the wheels are 20-inches or larger. Standard wheels on the Turbo S are 21-inches in diameter.
The optional high-tech brakes compliment several features that are standard on the Turbo S. Porsche's Active Suspension Management and Dynamic Chassis Control are systems designed to help the driver control the SUV when the driving gets spirited or the situation challenging. Speed-sensitive variable power steering is tied in with the chassis control system, and Porsche Stability Management is standard. There are front, side and curtain airbags, and there are two additional sensors up front to provide better detection of a head-on collision. On the outside, Porsche has fitted sophisticated lighting, including Bi-Xenon headlights that adjust for cornering and feature dynamic leveling, LED brake lights and fog lights front and rear.
Porsche Communication Management wraps navigation, travel computer, audio, a GSM telephone, electronic logbook and extended navigation into a system that occupies the center stack. A premium Bose audio system tailored specifically for the Cayenne's interior is standard, as is a rear-view camera system and automatic dual climate control. A rear-seat entertainment system is available as an option. The steering wheel is power tilt/telescope and automatically heated, while the standard sport seats are 12-way adjustable. The memory feature for the driver's side stores settings for the seat, exterior mirrors, steering wheel and seatbelt height. If you want more light, a panoramic roof is optional.
Finally, for those who have something to tow, there is a package that can handle a braked trailer weight of 7,716 pounds and a tongue weight up to 616 pounds.
