Since its introduction in 2014, the Porsche Macan has proven itself to be a popular choice with more than 350,000 units delivered globally. For its midlife update, Porsche has improved its best-selling model with some new styling cues from its siblings, the Cayenne and 911.
Up front, the updated Porsche Macan now comes with LED headlights as standard, while the rear receives a pair of tail lights inspired by the 991.2 generation 911 with a horizontal light bar. The tail lights also feature Porsche’s signature four-point design.
Porsche has also updated the cabin of the Macan with a new dashboard. Out goes the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, replaced by a new 11-inch Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system.
The updated dashboard also sees the air-conditioning vents being repositioned from the sides of the infotainment system to bottom of the touchscreen display, similar to the all-new Cayenne. Elsewhere, the updated Macan also features the Connect Plus module as standard. This module transforms the updated Macan into a fully-networked vehicle capable of intelligent voice control and displaying real-time traffic information.
As for the updated Porsche Macan’s active safety, the Stuttgart-based firm has stated that its compact SUV now features Traffic Jam Assist that works up to 60 km/h.
Four new body colours will be made available on the updated Macan, including Miami Blue, Crayon, Mamba Green Metallic, and Dolomite Silver Metallic.
The company did not reveal any powertrain details, though it is possible that the updated Macan will soldier on with existing powertrains.
