With its sleek exterior and clean, unbroken lines, Porsche Macan looks both elegant and sporty. The hood is wide and flat, and taillights look longer. The taillights are three-dimensional and the liftgate-release button is hidden on the rear windshield wiper. The roofline is lower and Porsche Macan is very similar to the larger Porsche Cayenne. All packages offer bi-xenon headlights and fog lights, and higher trims like GTS and Turbo come with a unique front fascia. GTS models will feature a matte-black finish on the side blades, and with more optional colors. It is easy to recognize the Turbo model thanks to the squared exhaust outlets and the front spoiler.
2019 Porsche Macan Interior
There were some disappointments about the interior of Porsche Macan. Some standard interior fittings and lack of space inside the cabin are the main issues. Furthermore, passengers in the back will have two inches less legroom than in the smallest Macan’s competitor. Besides that, cargo space is also stingy. That space can be expanded when 2nd-row seats are folded. But there are some positive features for sure. The materials are high quality with some nice aluminum trims all over the cabin.
The controls and buttons are also well placed and dynamic. Like on every Porsche model, the key is on the left side of the steering wheel. Seats are very comfortable and are very firm. Some buttons on the console look hard to control, but it’s not. Speaking of some standard and high-tech features, the 2019 Porsche Macan is well-equipped. Tri-zone climate control, rearview camera, lane-departure warning and power-folding mirrors are all standard. There is a new infotainment system, that is boosted with a 7-inch touchscreen display.
