What the Critics Say

“Quickness is important in a crossover with sporting intentions, but we wouldn’t be nearly as impressed with the Macan if it weren’t for its all-around competence on the road. It feels remarkably like a sports sedan. The ride is wonderfully smooth and carefully controlled, and it’s rare for a jolt from the pavement to make itself known to the driver.” — Car and Driver

“The Porsche Macan is a compact SUV with performance that lives up to the crest on its hood. The dream of the SUV that drives like a sports car is alive in the Macan in much the same way that it is in the bigger Cayenne. The difference is the Macan has a smaller footprint and less weight, making it more agile.” — Kelley Blue Book


What’s New for 2022

The proven Porsche Macan receives a number of exciting updates for the 2022 model year. Changes to the exterior include revised front and rear bumpers along with several new wheel choices ranging from 19 to 21 inches. Inside, drivers will also appreciate a revised center console sporting a new 10.9-inch HD display, as well as an updated steering wheel, and shift lever. The model range has been reduced to just three variants with the discontinuation of the Macan Turbo. Engineering enhancements have boosted the power of the standard 4-cylinder engine to 261 for the 2022 model year as well.
