Porsche has announced the arrival of a mini-SUV that will slot in beneath the popular Cayenne SUV.

Porsche’s new model will become the German manufacturer’s entry-level SUV- targeting “new and even younger customers to the premium brand along with the Boxster."

Despite brokering the name – Cajun – to the mini-SUV Porsche has stated that this is a working title and subject to change in the next four years in the run-up to its release.

Porsche has however confirmed that the Cajun will be based on the Audi Q5 platform and share its underpinnings with an upcoming Lamborghini SUV.

Porsche owns a large stake in parent company to Audi and Lamborghini- the Volkswagen Group- and as such designs, technology and notably engines are shared between sister companies.

There are no guarantees on how much the new Cajun will be priced however it should echo the £27,980 price tag of the Q5.

Currently the Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 – the bigger brothers of the Cajun and Q5 -start at around £40,000.

The Cajun will compete with the Range Rover Evoque and BMW X4 in the luxury compact SUV segment.

Its elder sibling – the Porsche Cayenne – entered the market amidst a cloud of controversy, most notably for its extravagant CO2 emissions however it has gone on to be Porsche’s best selling model, ever.

The newly revised Cayenne averaged 4,000 orders in each of its first four weeks on sale.
