New Porsche Cayenne's cabin is a tech geek's paradise; comes with three screens
Porsche Cayenne is all set to get a revamped look when the German luxury high-performance car brand launches the updated iteration of the SUV on April 18. Ahead of the car's debut, the automaker has revealed the interior of the new Porsche Cayenne, and it looks very exciting with an overhauled appearance.
What's most interesting is that the new Porsche Cayenne SUV has three digital displays integrated into the dashboard. The displays are connected and cover the entire width of the dashboard. While the display right in front of the driver comes in the form of the instrument cluster and shows vital information about the car's systems, the centre console sports an infotainment display. The screen in front of the front passenger appears to be for entertainment purposes.

Porsche says the 12.3-inch rectangular display at the centre dominates the dashboard. It claims to support Siri's voice commands to operate vehicle functions and gets online connected navigation as a standard feature. Once stationary, the occupants can stream video on this display, which is quite a similar feature to the Tesla cars. A new control panel for the HVAC system is there underneath this large screen, which gets a glass surface over a black panel. It comes with a touch recognition system with haptic feedback capability.
