Take a First Look at the New Porsche Macan
Since its debut in 2014, the Macan has been a huge success and has secured its spot in its segment as a sporty compact SUV. Then, recently in July, Porsche unveiled the new Macan for a world premiere in Shanghai. And although it will take a while until it makes its way to the United States, here is a first look at the new Porsche Macan.
Take a Walk Around the New Macan
While still staying true to the distinctive Porsche design DNA, the new Macan is equipped with redesigned features and a wider range of available technologies. There are plenty of new elements to the Macan as well, such as the standard LED headlights and signature Porsche three-dimensional LED tail light strip. The exterior has been re-worked so that the front-end appears wider; and the brake lights feature a four-point design. Plus, there are new available exterior colors: Miami Blue, Mamba Green Metallic, Dolomite Silver Metallic and Crayon.
Even the chassis of the Macan now has newly developed tires and offers improved performance characteristics such as enhanced neutrality while maintaining stability. The new arrangement of the tires allows for full use of the intelligent, all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management. The fine-tuning of the Macan chassis also provides more comfort like a smoother and quieter ride for occupants. And there are new 20-inch and 21-inch wheel options that drivers can choose from.
Since 2014, more than 350,000 Porsche Macan models have been delivered.
Step Inside the New Macan
Along with the facelift, the interior of the Macan has been updated for full connectivity and premium comfort. In fact, drivers can easily access the new Porsche Communication Management system through the enlarged 10.9-inch full-HD touchscreen that has been seamlessly integrated into the new design of the instrument panel. Then, the air vents have been redesigned and repositioned to be underneath the central screen of the console, as well as an improved ionizer for better air quality. Even the steering wheel has been redesigned to be a GT sports wheel with mode switch plus Sport Response Button in the available Sports Chrono Package.
And to make things more convenient, each Macan will be equipped with a Connect Plus module and a heated windscreen. Connect Plus adds various functions like intelligent voice control and real-time traffic information. There is also the “Here Cloud” connection which offers cutting-edge traffic data. The Macan’s redesign also allows for more assistive technologies like the new Traffic Jam Assist which includes adaptive cruise control. And drivers can monitor their driving performance with the new Offroad Precision App.
