Porsche Macan 2018 pricing and specs confirmed


Porsche Cars Australia has outed local specifications for its updated Macan, with the German compact SUV checking in at $81,400 plus on-road costs in entry-level guise.

However, the brand is still mute on the cost of the rest of the facelifted SUV range, with Aussie pricing for the higher-spec S, GTS and Turbo variants still unknown.

While we've previously seen imagery of the new Macan, the car made its public debut at the Paris motor show this week, providing a look at its updated design up close.

Exterior changes are minor in the mid-life update, with the most notably features being its three-dimensional LED light panel at the rear and standard LED headlights up front, as well as new-look 19-inch alloy wheels.

However, more significant changes lie within with the Macan now sporting the latest version of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system that makes use of a 10.9-inch touchscreen display, and boasts a strong list of connectivity features.

Locally, the Macan will come standard with sat nav, 14-way power adjustable seats, auto-dimming interior and exterior mirrors, plus Park Assist with surround-view monitors.

Powering the car is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, which has been slightly tweaked for improved combustion chamber geometry, while the chassis has been upgraded for increased comfort and driver engagement.

The refreshed 2.0-litre petrol engine will continue to pump out 185kW/370Nm and is matched with a seven-speed PDK transmission.

We expect more details to emerge on the upcoming Macan, as well as its higher-spec siblings, closer to its local launch in the first half of 2019.
