What the Critics Say

“From behind its thick leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel, the 2019 Porsche Macan is a wonderful blend of SUV and sports car. It’s one of the sportiest SUVs available, and it’s an engaging drive from the instant you fire up its turbocharged engine. Even the “slowest” model is fast. The 4-cylinder base model is able to rush to 60 mph in just over six seconds.” — Kelley Blue Book

“No matter how you slice it, the Macan offers an attractive design inside and out, exceptional build quality and ergonomics, and the handling characteristics you’d expect from a company responsible for the 911.” — Autotrader

What’s New for 2019

On the exterior, the Porsche Macan gets numerous styling enhancements which include a new single-bar taillight design and an updated front fascia. In terms of interior revisions, the Macan receives a new 10.9-inch touchscreen display for an improved infotainment experience. The suspension and steering have each been improved to enhance response, handling, and feedback. Macan S models will receive the latest Porsche 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. GTS and Turbo models are expected to arrive later this year.
