2019 Porsche Macan Exterior Design
The 2019 Porsche Macan features a reconfigured exterior designed to better showcase the power of the engine under its hood. The rear of the vehicle is trimmed with an all-new taillight design that spotlights the Porsche logo. The rear wheelhouses have been refined to more closely reflect its ultra-sporty cousin, the Porsche 911.
But Porsche doesn't put style over function. This redesign enhances aerodynamic properties for improved fuel efficiency and re-configures the rear brake lights for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing arrangement. The headlamps have been upgraded to an LED strip that runs the width of the vehicle, a beloved style borrowed from the Porsche Panamera.
This year adds four additional exterior color options as well: Miami Blue, Mamba Green, Dolomite Silver, and Crayon. Style connoisseurs can also upgrade to 20” or 21” wheels for an extra sporty look.
Interior of the 2019 Porsche Macan
Luxury performance on the outside partnered with luxury comfort on the inside—the 2019 Porsche Macan continues the legacy of all-around class. Optional high-quality leather seating can be paired with a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel for an ultimate plush interior. Choose from the highest quality trims, such as dark walnut wood or contrasting leather.
Drivers of the Porsche Macan will appreciate the level of attention behind the “cockpit” design of its cluster panels and controls. Everything is perfectly within reach and intuitive to use.
New for 2019 is the optional air ionizer to improve cargo air quality.
