The steering system has been completely revised and adapted for a more immediate response and greater driving dynamics. Around the straight-ahead position, in particular, the ratio is now more direct. With the variable steering ratio and special valve settings on the power-steering system, optimum manoeuvrability is ensured. The turning circle of the Cayenne models is just 39.1 ft..
The steering column itself consists of multiple collapsing sections linked by two universal joints and a special deformation element provides additional safety in the event of a front impact.
Electro-hydraulic power steering is used for the first time on the Cayenne S Hybrid. The demand-driven pump only provides assistance to the steering as and when required, thereby contributing to overall efficiency.
Power steering Plus is a speed-sensitive power-steering system. At higher speeds, the steering becomes firmer, inputs are more precise and driver comfort is enhanced. At lower speeds, it enables easy manoeuvrability and parking.
Standard on the Cayenne S Hybrid. Optional for all other Cayenne models.
