We re-hunt the 2018 Porsche Macan during a road test session. However, for the first time, our photographers have been able to get the first snapshots of the interior and trunk. The expected renovation of the Porsche SUV will hit the market early next summer.
Porsche continues to work on the awaited renewal of its “baby SUV”. The Stuttgart firm has again taken a test drive of the Porsche Macan 2018 and our photographers have again hired it. Compared with the last spy photos we have published, we continue to find an exterior with camouflage that seeks to hide the changes that will make the mark.
Now, even if we do not find new features outside the prototype photographed, the most important of these new snapshots that accompany the article is that they allow us to look inside and even sneak a look at their trunk. This is the first time we got some photos of the interior of the new Macan . And to make matters worse, we did not find a trace of camouflage in the passenger compartment.
What we found inside the cockpit of the 2018 Porsche Macan? The main new features that are visible are the new screen that will reproduce the latest generation of the information and entertainment system of the brand. The dashboard will also be reviewed. And to this, we must add the arrival of new upholstery and customization options. The finishes and materials used will be of higher quality .
As for the trunk, it is quite curious since we can find a computer unit that is responsible for processing all the data obtained by the various systems and sensors of the vehicle. Some valuable data that are used a posteriori by the German firm to fine tune the development of the smallest SUV available in its range.
The range of the 2018 Porsche Macan, as we anticipated not too long ago, will debut new versions as a plug-in hybrid called “E-Hybrid” that will be associated with a 3.0-liter V6 Turbo engine. The remaining available engines will be adjusted to improve their performance while increasing efficiency. Another novelty will be the appearance of the 2.9-liter V6 engine that is already used by the new Porsche Panamera .
The launch of the new Porsche Macan will take place in the first half of 2018 . Initially the most basic versions (including the Turbo) will be available and later the other options will arrive like the indicated plug-in hybrid variant or the completions Turbo S and GTS.
