We have proven that we will not be dictated to. Do not follow trends. But prefer to write our own adventure stories. Such as that of a compact SUV that inextricably combines sportiness, design and everyday practicality: the new Macan.
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 emphasises 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 911. And a further visual demonstration of the roadhugging nature of the new Macan.
Its flank is also typically Porsche. From this angle, every muscle appears to be energised – like a predator ready to pounce. Its roof line slopes to the rear just like a coupé, thereby creating a characteristic sports car contour with high aerodynamic quality. Our designers call this the Porsche flyline.
The interior has been completely restyled – and nevertheless remains typically Porsche. The centre console ascends towards the front. The dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide. The analogue rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster. Also new is the control concept: Porsche Advanced Cockpit. The centre console with Direct Touch Control has a surface in glass look featuring touch-sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions. In between: the compact gear selector. A high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard. In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control, the passengers in the rear also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the rev counter, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
