If you desire a compact SUV that inextricably combines sportiness, design and everyday practicality, the new Macan by Porsche may just be right automobile you need.
The aesthetics are not simply superficial, but an expression of the owner’s personality. With its dynamic overall look, the Macan is unmistakably a sports car. Its redesigned rear appears extremely powerful. Like a bold line under its own signature, the new characteristic taillight strip emphasizes the Porsche logo, enhanced by the new four-point brake lights, both functionally and visually.
The broad shoulders above its rear wheels are reminiscent of the Porsche 911, a further visual demonstration of the road hugging nature of the new Macan. Its flank is also typically Porsche. From this angle, every muscle appears to be energized – like a predator ready to pounce. Its roofline slopes to the rear just like a coupé, thereby creating a characteristic sports car contour with high aerodynamic quality. Porsche designers call this the Porsche fly line.
The sporty front seats convey a typical Macan feeling: you may sit high above the road, yet you are still closely connected to it. As a sports car manufacturer, Porsche seems to understand that a car and its driver must form a single entity. Beyond sitting in the Macan, the driver is integrated into the vehicle.
The three-dimensional arrangement of the controls lends the interior a cockpit-like character. The distance between the standard multifunction steering wheel and the PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) gear selector, as well as the main vehicle functions, is extremely short, via the ascending centre console, characteristic of sports cars. The ignition is on the left, as is typical of Porsche.
One highlight that will be of interest is the new 10.9˝ touchscreen display in Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The new design boasts full-HD resolution with a start screen that can be fully customized. The new, intuitive menu provides even faster access to the main functions.
The Macan is not just about mobility, it is about discovery and the driving experience. Every second we want to feel that our life is dynamic, on the road and in our sports car.
The Macan delivers more than power alone. Such as the active all-wheel-drive system Porsche Traction Management (PTM), traction, safety, outstanding steering and exceptional handling – clear evidence of traditional Porsche engineering.
Also, the optional air suspension guarantees a constant ride height, on any terrain. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) also actively and continuously adjusts damping force. For each individual wheel. The result? Increased comfort and sportiness, in all seats.
Driving a sports car is an intense experience, involving all senses. But endorphins are not just released by performance and adrenaline. Thanks to the optionally available high-quality leather interior, the new Macan makes you feel happy as soon as you get in. With the ascending centre console beside the optional multifunctional GT sports steering wheel contributing to the genuine sports car feeling.
Your ears are also in for a treat: the optional sports exhaust system makes the typical Porsche sound appear even more powerful. Apropos the audio experience: the Bose Surround Sound System and Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System are available as options for the Macan models.
To be able to breathe freely while enjoying the experience, three-zone automatic climate control is fitted as standard. The optional ionizer is a new addition – for improved air quality that enhances your wellbeing.
The Macan is eclectic and thrilling. The new 10.9˝ touchscreen display with full-HD resolution provides even more interfaces with your next adventure. The customizable start screen is intuitive to use. The standard online navigation system ensures that you arrive at your next adventure even more quickly. Connect Plus assists you with Real-time Traffic Information and online map updates. The Porsche Connect app allows you to determine your preferred destination and send it to your Macan while looking for an empty parking space. You can create your own soundtrack, with the music streaming function of the Porsche Connect app.
