Porsche Upgrades Macan Range, Releases New Packages For Turbo Models

Along with the introduction of the new Macan GTS, Porsche took the opportunity and upgraded some of the interior features of their smaller SUV, releasing also new styling packages for the Turbo models.

In the wake of the “precautionary recall” issued worldwide for Macan S and Macan Turbo models, Porsche will now offer their latest PCM infotainment system with a seven-inch touchscreen, real-time navigation, easier operation, built-in WiFi hotspot and optional Apple CarPlay compatibility, originally seen in the facelifted 911.

Porsche also offers new full-LED headlights as an option for all Macan models, while a re-engineered steering system provides a more direct handing experience and better feedback.

The company also announced the launch of additional exterior and interior packages for the Macan Turbo, inspired by the GTS model. The exterior package includes a set of bi-color 21-inch Turbo design wheels, Sport Design door mirrors and wheel hub covers with colored accents, high gloss-black inserts for the air inlets, side blades, the trim strips of the side windows and the rear underbody panel. The black tailpipes of the exhaust and the smoked rear lights complete the changes of the exterior package.

The cabin benefits from plenty of Alcantara trim with contrasting stitching, covering from the middle section of the seats to the armrests of the center console and the door panels. The instrument panel, door panels and the seats can be decorated with either Rhodium Silver or Garnet Red stitching.

Both packages can be ordered separately while Porsche added new colors to the available palette for the Macan. The new Porsche Macan will be available as from early 2016 and can be ordered in Germany now with prices starting at 61,143 euros for the Macan S model and all the way up to 83,753 euros for the top-of-the-range 400hp Macan Turbo.
