Porsche Macan leaked ahead of LA Auto Show!


Harish Kumar, Hi, I'm Harish Kumar, fondly known as Harry. Two words explain me - Car Nut.

Images of the Porsche Macan that will feature in an upcoming issue of German car magazine, Auto Motor Und Sport, have leaked on the internet.

When viewed head on, the Macan looks a lot like the larger Cayenne. However, its partly based on the Audi Q5 platform and sports the exact same wheelbase at 2,807mm.

This is the Porsche Macan!

The magazine has also published an image comparing it to the Audi Q5 and you get a general idea of the Macan’s length. Here are some excerpts from Auto Motor Und Sport’s review:

  1. The Macan doesn’t appear to be much smaller than its bigger brother, the Cayenne.
  2. With 340 PS and 400 PS V6 engines, the Macan gets an electromechanical AWD system.
  3. The seating position for the driver is pretty high, and the steering wheel is inspired by the 918 Spyder. Overall, a very sporty cockpit, but there are too many buttons.
  4. The rear seat is pretty narrow. The headroom is tight and the reviewer does not recommend it for large families.
Porsche Macan vs Audi Q5
The Macan is partly based on the Audi Q5 and will compete with it.
