The mid-size Porsche Cayenne is all-new for the 2019 model year but the brand is also working on its diminutive, the Macan. Porsche’s another successful combination of the sports car and SUV after the 2015 launch arrived at the midway point and is ready for the mid-cycle update. The 2019 Porsche Macan was spotted on several occasions while testing and the latest testing model was caught with no camo. So, the debut date can’t be far away.
The refreshed Macan will bring some styling tweaks and the interior will also follow with some changes on the dash and equipment. Porsche will also make some changes in the powertrain lineup but we are still waiting for more details to appear.
2019 Porsche Macan: Design Changes
Porsche doesn’t dare to make radical changes on model’s recognizable body shape and design. That was the case with the new-generation Cayenne and the refreshed 2019 Porsche Macan won’t also be an exception. Like every mid-cycle upgrade, this one will also bring changes on the “soft” parts.
The frontal section will receive the same shaped headlights but with the different LED graphics. The front bumper area is also the part of the update and lower section looks different. Another new detail is new slimmer indicators placed in the grille section.
The rear side will adopt the new taillights with the design similar to that on the new Cayenne and other recent Porsches.
The interior will also be the subject of the update. The center section of the dash will receive the larger main display with integrated newest Porsche Communication Management system.
On the other hand, Panamera’s touch-sensitive controls won’t likely appear in the Macan model before the next redesign. However, we should also expect the redesigned instrument cluster to see in the next Macan. Porsche will also update other electronic equipment and offer fresh textures.
2019 Porsche Macan: Powertrains
As for the engine options, we still are waiting for more details. We don’t have doubt that the refreshed 2019 Porsche Macan will get upgraded powertrain options.
The Macan’s currently exploited 3.0-liter turbo V-6 engine will likely be replaced with the new more efficient version. We will likely see the new, more advanced 2.9-liter turbocharged V-6 engine in the Turbo version. The version of these engines debuted in the redesigned Panamera and will appear in the refreshed Macan version.
However, we shouldn’t exclude the petrol-electric powertrain version for the next Macan. Again, the system will be similar to what we get in the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid.
2019 Porsche Macan: Arrival, Price
The 2019 Porsche Macan will make its debut soon and the Paris Show could be the venue. The sales will start by the year-end. The prices will stay close to the current range.
