The new Cayenne is equipped with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (DLS). That implies full LED projector headlights arranged in groups of four. Rear end comes with the twin tailpipes, which is specific for Turbo models, and there are also LED taillights as standard. Front fascia now looks sharper which is a bit lower than before. Bigger air intake is now caved into the front bumper altogether with LED foglights. The 21 inch turbo wheels are reserved for this kind of vehicle.
