2018 Porsche Macan
2018 Porsche Macan at Porsche of Peoria
The Macan concept.
We have proven that we will not be dictated to. Do not follow trends. But prefer to write our own adventure stories. Such as that of a compact SUV that inextricably combines sportiness, design and everyday practicality: the new Macan.
With its dynamic overall look, the Macan is unmistakably a sports car. Its redesigned rear appears extremely powerful. Like a bold line under its own signature, the new characteristic taillight strip emphasizes the Porsche logo, enhanced by the new four-point brake lights, both functionally and visually.
The broad shoulders above its rear wheels are reminiscent of the 911. And a further visual demonstration of the roadhugging nature of the new Macan.
Its flank is also typically Porsche. From this angle, every muscle appears to be energized – like a predator ready to pounce. Its roof line slopes to the rear just like a coupé, thereby creating a characteristic sports car contour with high aerodynamic quality. Our designers call this the Porsche flyline.
You are seeking one experience after another. Of course you want to maintain an overview. The sporty front seats convey a typical Macanfeeling: you may sit high above the road, yet you are still closely connected to it.
As a sports car manufacturer, we understand that a car and its driver must form a single entity. So you do not simply sit in the Macan – but, thanks to its architecture, you are integrated into the vehicle.
The three-dimensional arrangement of the controls lends the interior a cockpit character. The distance between the standard multifunction steering wheel and the PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) gear selector, as well as the main vehicle functions, is extremely short – via the ascending center console, characteristic of sports cars. The ignition is on the left – as is typical of Porsche.
One highlight of which we are particularly proud: the new 10.9˝ touchscreen display in Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The new design boasts full-HD resolution and a personalized start screen. The new, intuitive menu provides even faster access to the main functions.
