2022 Porsche Macan
The revised 2022 Porsche Macan is finally here and it has a new look and more power!
We recently got behind the wheel of this Python Green machine---and drove around beautiful Palos Verdes, California. It felt powerful, smooth and sporty, which is what we’ve come to love and expect from Porsche. No wonder the Macan has been their best selling model since 2016.
Exterior design changes to the compact SUV makes it look modern and cool, like the roof spoiler with a fixed twin wing design and fin in high-gloss black. And there’s a new rear diffuser design.
It comes standard with 19 inch wheels and there are a bunch of new wheel designs available.
The Macan GTS also slithers into the top spot of the Macan family replacing the Porsche Macan Turbo.
“I don’t think it’s possible to hate driving this Macan GTS. It has more power than ever plus a lot more standard equipment.”
The Macan’s standard 2.0-liter turbo-4 now outputs 261 horsepower while the GTS has a 2.9 liter V6 twin-turbo engine giving out 434 horsepower and 406 pound feet of torque. The 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission is standard so is all wheel drive.
This small luxury SUV also comes with a new optional GTS sport package if you really want to take your driving experience to the next level.
Air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management is standard on the GTS. With an up to 15% stiffer set-up than before.
Inside, you’ll notice styling changes for 2022.
“The center console has been completely redesigned. The Gear Selector Lever is now shorter. And there are very few buttons this time around it’s basically all touchscreen. I personally like it, but it may not be for everyone.”
There’s even a new open storage compartment that’s convenient for storing a cell phone, wallet, or other small items.
All Macans come with a 10.9 inch touchscreen with standard navigation and Apple Carplay.
The 2022 Porsche Macan starts at just over $56,000 and will be available to buy in the Spring of 2022.
We will have much more on this luxury SUV soon on Motorweek!
