About the Porsche Macan

Infused with the same passion and thrills that have made Porsche a legend all across the globe, the athletic Macan achieves harmony between practicality and prestige. Immediately recognizable as a Porsche, the Macan is elevated above the competition due to its striking styling and composed stance on the road. Under the hood lies your choice of a potent 4-cylinder or muscular V6, further benefitting from its standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system. Meticulously designed to place vital controls within arm’s reach of the driver, the luxurious cabin of the Macan is infused with premium materials along with the latest collection of driver-assistive safety features. Perfect for drivers that live busy active lifestyles, the Porsche Macan is perfectly suited for twisting canyon roads and downtown boulevards. No other luxury SUV combines the race-winning spirit of a sports car with everyday practicality quite like the Porsche Macan.


What’s new for 2023

The largest change to the potent Porsche Macan is the arrival of an all-new Macan T variant for the 2023 model year. Macan T trims receive the legendary Sport Chrono Package, an adaptive suspension, and exclusive exterior design features. All Macan models now come standard with Adaptive Cruise Control while the optional Lane Keep Assist feature now benefits from Traffic Jam Assist functionality. Finally, Copper Ruby Metallic replaces last year’s Mahogany Metallic and Miami Blue is no longer offered as an exterior color option on the Porsche Macan.


What the critics say

“But no matter which engine you choose, the Macan’s chassis is an athletic partner that goads you to hit apex after apex. All models come with all-wheel drive as standard, and those who want to enhance the crossover’s handling can do so via several options, including summer tires, an adaptive suspension, a torque-vectoring differential, and tungsten-carbide-coated rotors. Yes, it’s an SUV, but it’s also very much a Porsche.” – Car and Driver

“The Macan excels at providing an engaging driving experience without the jarring ride that’s often associated with sport-tuned SUVs. It feels lithe and surefooted in turns, its steering is responsive and well-weighted, and the brakes provide assured stopping power. The suspension irons out bumps and dips in the road, yielding a comfortable ride.” – U.S. News & World Report
