Thanks to coupé-like lines, a low front end and sporty proportions, the new Macan benefits from the classic Porsche styling that looks dynamic even at a standstill. Yet while the progressive exterior is typical of the brand’s design DNA, the designers from Style Porsche have made good use of the creative freedom that electrification offers.

The shallow pitch of the bonnet and the strongly pronounced wings give the entry-level SUV (which is 4,784 millimetres long, 1,938 mm wide and 1,622 mm high) a powerful and sporty appearance. The headlights are split into two parts: the flat upper light unit with four-point daytime running lights is embedded in the wings and emphasises the width of the car. The main headlight module, meanwhile, is positioned slightly lower in the front end of the car and is available with matrix LED technology as an option. The ‘air curtains’ below the headlight module improve the aerodynamics, while smaller cooling air inlets underline the car’s modern character. The front section, with its optimised 3D-look surface structure, contributes to aerodynamic optimisation and gives the Macan a progressive look at its front end.

The characteristic Porsche flyline forms a coherent whole with the shallow-raked rear window. In combination with the frameless doors, the result is a distinctly sporty design. Other striking elements in the car’s profile are the recess in the doors and the sideblades – two classic characteristics of the Macan model line. Finished in Lava Black as standard and featuring a 3D texture on the Macan 4, they are available in up to five finishes depending on the model, including in carbon or in the same colour as the exterior paintwork of the car. The side profile of the Macan underscores the promise of performance: short overhangs combine with a wheelbase just under nine centimetres longer than the previous model (2,893 mm). The new Macan is fitted with up to 22-inch wheels with a staggered tyre fitment. The Macan 4 and Macan Turbo come as standard with aerodynamically optimised 20-inch wheels for the best possible efficiency.

Strongly pronounced shoulders give the rear of the Macan a muscular look. Below the adaptive rear spoiler, a continuous light strip spans the rear section and lends the vehicle a technical aesthetic. The Porsche logo now sits in the centre of the 3D light strip. It is moulded three-dimensionally like a glass sculpture. The rear diffuser harmoniously rounds off the lower part of the rear of Macan models.

There are 13 standard and 59 special colours (Paint to Sample) – as well as eight different wheel designs from 20 to 22 inches in diameter – allowing a high degree of design freedom for customisation.

Interior: driver-orientated, high-quality and individual

The interior is unmistakably Porsche: the width of the cockpit is emphasised by an integrated black panel. The rising design of the centre console heightens the impression of a low and performance-focused seating position in the vehicle. At the same time, large windows give a light and airy feel to the interior space. In addition to the modern digital user interfaces, there are also select analogue control elements – for example, on the air vents and the air conditioning controls.

To the left behind the steering wheel is a completely redesigned control lever. This allows the driver assistance systems to be activated directly. The mode button on the control lever can be used to open pop-ups in the instrument cluster and Porsche Communication Management (PCM), allowing additional settings for the assistance mode to be made directly and quickly. Thanks to the new, particularly ergonomic design of the control lever, the driver does not have to move their hand far from the steering wheel.

An LED light strip is integrated into the thoughtfully designed trim strip of the cockpit and doors. It acts as both ambient lighting and a communication light. Depending on the situation, it provides information or warnings – such as for greetings, charging processes or in conjunction with the driver assistance systems.

The equipment in the new Macan enables a high degree of customisation. Depending on the model, eight different colour variations can be combined with up to seven possible interior packages and up to four accent packages. Porsche also aims to use more ecologically friendly materials in its cars. A proportion of such materials is used in selected parts in the interior of the all-electric Macan. Econyl®, made of regenerated nylon, is used in the floor mats and flooring. The trim elements of the optional Summerwood interior package are partially made of rattan. Porsche also offers leather-free seats in the Macan 4.

Exclusive colour for the Macan Turbo

For almost 50 years, the Turbo models have enjoyed a position of prestige in the Porsche programme. They represent distinctively high performance and are the pinnacle of every model series. To emphasise their uniqueness, Porsche is now differentiating the turbo models more strongly. The top-of-the-line Macan model is already benefiting from the sharpened look.

The new Turbonite metallic tone is exclusively reserved for the Turbo models. On the range-topping model a Turbonite finish is standard for the logo in the rear, the edging of the side windows, the airblades of the distinctive front end, the Porsche crest on the decorative covers of the alloy wheels, the design trim on the lower rear bumper and the sideblades. Turbonite is also the dominant colour in the exclusive crest on the Macan Turbo. All the range-topping high-performance models will soon feature this crest on their front, as well as on the lightweight alloy wheels and the steering wheel.

Selected interior components also feature Turbonite. The Macan Turbo comes standard with a leather package that features Turbonite accents. The accent strips in the doors feature this exclusive colour. In addition, Turbonite is used as a contrasting colour for the thread on the steering wheel, centre console, upper part of the gearshift and door panels, armrest and inner door handles.

Low drag for higher range

Porsche combines its design DNA with aerodynamics optimised for range. Thanks to Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) with active and passive elements and a drag coefficient of 0.25, the new Macan is one of the most streamlined SUVs on the market – with positive effects on efficiency and range. The automatically extending rear spoiler, active cooling flaps on the front air intakes and flexible covers on the fully sealed underbody all have an impact.

The rear spoiler extends variably in two stages depending on the speed and the selected driving programme. Whether the optional panoramic roof is open or closed is also taken into account. The cooling air flaps are fully open during charging to help cool the battery. They are usually closed while driving, which reduces wind resistance and extends the range. If the thermal management system recognises that additional cooling air is required for the battery, power units or interior air conditioning, the variable flaps open as required. The flat underbody has flexible elements near the rear wheels. They ensure that the surface remains closed during the rebound phase of suspension movement and therefore help to minimise air resistance. Air curtains below the headlight module and the low-slung front end optimise air flow. Two striking edges on the sides of the rear section, together with the diffuser blade, ensure aerodynamic efficiency. In combination with air suspension, the ride height can be lowered, depending on speed, which leads to improved aerodynamics and a higher electric range.
