The Porsche Macan hit showrooms in 2015, offering an affordable Porsche that could haul people and groceries with ease. Since its debut, the Macan has remained mostly the same, other than some lineup and powertrain updates. The 2022 Porsche Macan will boast a refresh that includes an updated body, interior, and powertrain. Here’s what to expect when it arrives.
The 2022 Porsche Macan will retain the bulk of its design, but its soft parts will get mild updates. Up front, the 2022 Macan will get a slightly revised front fascia that includes integrated cooling air intakes and body-color front trim. The new Macan will also gain new 3D textured side blades, an upward-stretched black rear diffuser, standard Sport Design mirrors, seven new wheel types, and new 21-inch standard wheels.
Inside, the 2022 Macan’s changes are harder to spot, but they are there. These changes will include a redesigned dash-mounted analog clock, a larger storage compartment, a shorter gear shifter, a new GT Sport steering wheel, and three new stitching options.
The range-topping GTS will get a handful of exclusive updates, including new 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels, Spot Design side skirts, clear LED taillights, and a sport exhaust system with black tailpipes.
Under its hood, the 2022 Macan will get a whole lineup full of more powerful engines, starting with the base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that will deliver 261 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque – gains of 13 hp and 22 lb-ft. This will result in a 5.8-second 0-60 sprint time with the Sport Chrono package – a 0.3-second improvement.
The Macan S will can a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 with 375 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, gains of 27 hp and 29 lb-ft. This will push the Macan S to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds with the Sport Chrono package, making it a half-second quicker than the last Macan.
The range-topping GTS will push the 2.9-liter engine to 434 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque – gains of 59 hp and 23 lb-t of torque. This added power will launch the Macan to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. The GTS will also ride 10 mm closer to the ground and boast a 15% stiffer suspension.
Despite the refresh, the 2022 Macan will continue to ack standard automatic emergency braking, but it will have standard lane departure warning and rear park assist. Buyers can spend up for automatic emergency braking, park assist, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, lane change assist, and more.
