Porsche Macan 2022 — upgraded crossover (new design, equipment and technology).

The debut of the Porsche Macan from the Stuttgart manufacturer took place in 2013, and for all this time there have been no changes of a global nature. That is, it is still the car of the 1st generation (Typ 95B).

At the same time, there were only two versions of the models:

Pre-restyled (95B.1);
restyled (95B.2).

The transition is due to take place in 2023, with cars planned to be made only on electric traction.

Such a decision was promoted by the success of Porsche Taycan electric car, which prompted the developers to introduce the idea in Macan as well. While the next restyling of 2022 model year comes out, and in fact the classic crossover variant with an internal combustion engine.

The manufacturer has provided three versions. This is the traditional base version, as well as modifications Macan S and Macan GTS. At the same time, development of an electric version was underway, which has already begun road tests. The debut and serial production will also start in two years.


The car can observe a number of changes in the appearance. The body has gained more square outlines with symmetrical lines. Slight changes have affected the lights — the headlamp system is now of adaptive design.

Air intakes in the front bumper increased in size, and the diffuser of the rear one changed its outlines. The wheel rims also look different now.

Their size varies from 19 to 21 inches, depending on the configuration. The design is offered in seven variants.

The radiator grille is also different — two modifications (base and S) have an insert in the body color, while the third version (GTS) has almost all black front end.

Side mirrors correspond to the Sport Design style. The body painting is complemented by new colors — orange and blue, and the total palette includes 14 shades.

The loaded version features the Python Green color scheme.

Ultimately, Porsche’s designers initially got the concept of how the car should look right. When creating the restyled version, they decided to stay true to tradition by introducing minor details.

As a result, the Porsche Macan began to play with new «colors».

Interior and equipment

Engineers decided to implement a controversial at first glance innovation — to equip the central tunnel with touch buttons instead of the analog that were previously.

The multimedia system on the contrary has not changed and here all the same widescreen Full HD display (10.9 inches), capable of recognizing voice commands and gives access to many online services.

The list of options includes not only the new type of driving assistants, but also various safety systems.
