Inside the cabin, there is Porsche Communication Management (PCM) along with an 11-inch touchscreen, redesigned and repositioned air vents and the GT sports steering wheel reminiscent of the 911.
The PCM enables access to new digital function like intelligent voice control and its range of comfort equipment now include an ioniser and windscreen heating. The model is very popular in the Chinese market where Porsche unveiled the redesigned compact SUV. The version of the model presented in Shanghai will be offered exclusively in the Chinese market. A range of Macan derivatives will be launched for other regions in due course.
The insides of the new Macan get an optional GT sports steering wheel, while the mode switch plus Sport Response Button on the steering wheel is a as part of the optional Sports Chrono Package. Porsche has extended the list of comfort options to include a heated windscreen and an ioniser to improve the air quality in the interior. New exterior colours such as “Miami Blue”, “Mamba Green Metallic” “Dolomite Silver Metallic” and “Crayon” combined with new interior packages ensure that the Macan is now more customisable than ever before.
The newly designed instrument panel gets a large 11-inch touchscreen and the user interface on the infotainment system can be customised using predefined tiles. The air vents have also been re-designed and are now positioned below the central screen. Each Macan is equipped with a Connect Plus module, making every vehicle fully networked as standard. Using the new Offroad Precision App, it is also possible to record and analyse off-road driving experiences in the model.
The Macan still features mixed tyres with different widths on the front and rear axles. The newly developed tyres with improved performance characteristics enable even better lateral dynamics for enhanced driving pleasure, while the new 20 and 21-inch wheels also offer greater scope to customise the design.
