2022 Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition Dresses Up SUV and Coupe Versions
The 2022 Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition is available in SUV and coupe body styles.
The least expensive Cayenne Platinum Edition starts at $80,350.
The Platinum Edition kit is available on Cayenne, Cayenne S, and Cayenne E-Hybrid models.
Porsche’s flagship Panamera is no longer the only vehicle from the German brand to sprout a stylish Platinum Edition trim. Now the Cayenne welcomes the Platinum Edition kit to its SUV and coupe body styles for 2022 as well. Despite its moniker, the Platinum Edition of Porsche’s mid-sizer does not include any bits of the previous metal it’s named after, just attractive platinum-painted details.
In the case of its Cayenne Platinum Edition, Porsche applies a coat of Satin Platinum paint to a number of the vehicle’s badges, as well as its fascia-mounted intake treatment and its distinct 21-inch wheels. Black exhaust tips and window trim add an extra hint of menace to the model.
Looking to add some color to your Cayenne Platinum Edition? Then we hope you like dark brown or blue, otherwise, you’re looking at variants of black, white, or light gray (Chalk in Porsche-speak). Regardless of its exterior hue, the Cayenne Platinum Edition comes fitted with Chalk-colored seatbelts, textured aluminum interior trim, and model-specific brushed-aluminum kick plates.
With a starting price of $80,350, the Platinum Edition SUV costs $10,000 more than its run-of-the-mill counterpart (the Platinum Edition coupe, meanwhile, starts at $84,650, or $5800 more than the standard Cayenne coupe). The extra coin, however, nets the Platinum Edition a number of goodies that Porsche charges extra for in lesser Cayennes. This includes swiveling LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, Bose premium audio, eight-way power sport seats, and ambient interior lighting. The highest-priced Platinum models are the E-Hybrid coupe at $95,150 and the Cayenne S coupe at $96,950.
Look for the 2022 Porsche Cayenne Platinum Edition SUV and coupe to go on sale this summer in 335-hp Cayenne, 434-hp Cayenne S, and 455-hp Cayenne E-Hybrid forms.
