Porsche unveils updated Macan

Porsche has revealed an updated version of the Macan SUV, aiming to continue the success the model has enjoyed since launch.

Unveiled at a special event in Shanghai, the mid-sized SUV has received new exterior features and improved infotainment options.

The Macan has proved to be a popular model for the German manufacturer, which has delivered more than 350,000 units since it was introduced in 2014.

Porsche has kept the overall design very similar to the previous edition, with new LED headlights and bumper the main changes to the front, while an LED light bar has been fitted to the rear to mirror the current Panamera’s brake and indicator lighting.

New alloy designs have also been introduced, with options coming in 20- and 21-inch sizes.

Inside, Macan models now come with a new dashboard design incorporating an 11-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes media and satellite navigation features, as well as the Porsche Connect Plus system that transmits traffic information in real-time.

Customers can also choose the optional GT sports steering wheel that features a Sport Response Button, which allows drivers to access maximum acceleration capabilities for up to 20 seconds.

Porsche also fitted a new version of its Traffic Jam Assist that uses adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist to allow for semi-autonomous driving at speeds up to 37mph.

New exterior colours have been introduced, with customers able to choose from Miami Blue, Mamba Green Metallic, Dolomite Silver Metallic and Crayon along with the established options.

Engine options are likely to stay close to the current selection, with a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol the entry-level option and no diesel on offer. Prices are also yet to be confirmed.
