2019 Porsche Macan facelift SUV to launch in India on July 29
For 2019, the Porsche Macan receives technology updates as well as new tail lights. The LED lights at the rear are the biggest change you will notice on the exterior. There is now an LED strip that connects the tail lights. In China, the 2019 Macan also receives LED headlights as standard.
These new lamps feature 3D design elements and can also be upgraded with the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus for adaptive lighting. The front bumper has a slight redesign and there are sleek LED DRLs. In addition to the updated exterior, there is now a more refined cabin with updated tech, including the upgraded central infotainment display, which is now a larger 11-inch touchscreen.
Like the exterior, even the cabin of the new Macan receives more colour and material options to choose from. We expect Black and Tan to be the most common combination for the Macan's cabin in India
Similar to the Panamera, the Macan also receives a steering wheel-mounted drive mode selector. Other new tech features include the Porsche Connect Plus cloud-based telematics service, an updated Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system, and an Offroad Precision App that lets you record your off-road adventures.
The easiest way to identify the new Macan from the old one, is the seamless strip of lighting on the tailgate
While Porsche has not specified the technical details, power outputs are also likely to increase across the board. The base Macan, with its 2.0-litre petrol, is now expected to produce almost 300PS, up from the earlier 252PS. The mid-level S should get a 20PS power boost to take it up to 355PS. The Macan Turbo should now make 434PS, a 40PS bump. These details should be available soon, as the Macan starts making its debut in international markets, and eventually India.
