The 2019 Porsche Macan, which is the mid-cycle facelift for one of the most popular models from the Stuttgart-based car marque, was displayed at the Paris Motor Show 2018. The softly updated model was unveiled in June 2018.
A close look at the 2019 Porsche Macan's front-end reveals new LED headlights with signature four-LED fixtures each, bigger air intakes near the radiator grille, and sleek LED strips that double up as turn indicators.
Thanks to these changes, the front-end of the SUV looks wider than before. The side profile remains intact, except for a new design for the alloy wheels. In keeping with Porsche's latest design philosophy, the Macan receives a three-dimensional LED light panel at its tail-end. Like the Porsche 718, the tail lights of the MY2019 Macan feature 3D elements with the Porsche lettering splashed across the mid-section. Four new exterior colours are now on offer- Mamba Green Metallic, Dolomite Silver Metallic, Miami Blue and Crayon.
The interior of the 2019 Porsche Macan mirrors that of its predecessor to a large extent. The new features include a touchscreen system, heated front windshield, air ioniser for the climate control, and a new Traffic Jam Assist feature that allows semi-autonomous driving at speeds of up to 37 miles per hour (60 km/h). The optional GT sports steering wheel comes from the Porsche 911.
The engine and the gearbox options have been left untouched. The 2019 Porsche Macan is available with 2.0-litre turbocharged, 3.0-litre twin-turbo, and 3.6-litre twin-turbo petrol engines that are mated a 7-speed PDK gearbox.
The 2019 Porsche Macan rides on an overhauled chassis that enhances the comfort levels and the road handling characteristics. The refreshed model offers all-wheel drive with Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system.
