Porsche introduced yet another facelift for the Macan lineup for the 2022 model year. The range got more power under the hood, a refreshed design, and an improved interior. The base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder now makes 261 horsepower. It is a newly developed, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that helps hustle the base Macan from 0 - 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 144 mph. The redesign on the outside gives the base 2022 Macan a tighter look.
Current Macan Lineup
The 2022 Porsche Macan is nearly perfect. It has all the utility you could ever want in a small CUV and it drives just like a sporty sedan. It really does. Along with a refreshed design, the 2022 models have a host of other updates. First, there is a trio of turbocharged engines. At the top (replacing the now discontinued Turbo) is the performance-focused GTS with a healthy 434-hp twin-turbo V-6. The Macan S inherits the 375-hp twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 from last year's GTS and the base Macan makes do with slightly less horsepower but is still fun. As always, all current Macan models come with all-wheel drive as standard. In terms of options, this is Porsche so there are plenty. You can get adaptive suspension, a torque-vectoring differential, and even tungsten-carbide-coated rotors. In terms of design, the 2022 models all get updated front and rear bumpers and added new wheel designs. The interior sports a reworked center console, steering wheel, and shift lever.
1st Generation Macan (95B) Models
The production version of the Macan was unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show and 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. European models went on sales in spring 2014 and the initial line-up of models included the Macan S and Macan Turbo. Early models included Macan S, Macan Turbo. Porsche subsequently released a base Macan for select Asian markets and the United Kingdom. This engine became offered globally for the Macan's 2017 model year. Changes to the Macan for 2016 include Porsche Communication Management system, optional full-LED headlights, redesigned steering controller, extended exterior and interior packages for Macan Turbo. The 2019 model year Macan range got an update. Changes to the previous model include an overhauled chassis, a gasoline particulate filter fitted as standard, a new front and rear fascia with LED head- and tail-lights as standard, new exterior colors and wheel designs, and a redesigned interior with Porsche Communication Management with 10.9-inch touchscreen display and Connect Plus with Porsche Offroad Precision App as standard. Overall, this mid-generation Macan update heralded sleeker looks, lower ride profile, enhanced performance and new interior. While this isn’t a full redesign, the Macan got some notable tweaks to its exterior, interior and mechanicals for the 2022 model year. Across the 2022 Macan lineup, Porsche is giving buyers more powerful engine options compared to 2021 models.
