All Cayennes get a 7.0in colour touchscreen, CD player, USB-input and multifunction steering wheel as standard, but Bluetooth, digital radio and sat-nav are pricey options on all but the Turbo models, and voice control is optional even on those. That’s more than a bit cheeky on a car of this price, when Bluetooth is standard on most budget city cars.
Just as well, then, that once you’ve chosen your system, it’s a good one. Sat-nav instructions, or a map view, can be shown in one of the driver’s readout screens, and while the central colour touchscreen isn’t the fastest to respond, it has a fairly logical layout and can be controlled by a rotary switch, which is much better when you’re on the move.
The standard eight speaker audio system is good, too, although most people will go for the upgraded 11-speaker CDR Plus system, which offers excellent tone and clarity even at a high volume. It’s so good that it isn’t worth adding the pricey Burmester sound system.
A rear entertainment package that includes two 10in colour touchscreens, two USB inputs, an HDMI input and DVD player, and two wireless headphones is a popular, if costly, option.
