In addition, the vehicles are more powerful than the outgoing models, which means better performance. Apparently, the reduction in consumption is attributed to the use the new fuel-efficient eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission with automatic stop/start function and a wide gear ratio range.

Also, the weight reduction and intelligent lightweight construction is also an important factor in reducing fuel consumption.

The new Cayenne is with 400 pounds lighter, which means lower CO2 emissions, but improved performance, agility, and handling.
