The 2022 Porsche Macan has just been revealed, receiving its second and final facelift ever since this model came out in 2014. This is also going to be the final facelift before the all-new Macan comes out as an all-new fully-electric luxury performance SUV.
On the aesthetic side, the facelifted Macan gets a new front bumper that features a black trim surrounding its face. Depending on the variant, the entire lower front end of the Macan is finished in black as well. The Macan’s signature side blade has also been revised, now featuring a textured finish. Finally, there’s a new rear bumper design that gives the Macan a sportier touch.
As for the interior, the dash design remains largely unchanged, though the main upgrade is its new 10.9-inch Porsche Communication Management touch screen infotainment that also appears from the Panamera, 911, Taycan, and Cayenne. The center console, however, is all-new and is inspired by Porsche’s latest models. Most of the buttons have been ditched in favor of capacitive touchpoints.
Opting for the Macan GTS adds a number of upgrades such as the 21-inch black RS Spyder wheels, a new adaptive air suspension that’s 15 percent stiffer than before, Porsche Surface Coated brakes in red, black exhausts, Sport Design side skirts, and clear LED taillights.
For even more sportiness, there’s an optional GTS Sport package that includes the Sport Chrono package, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, 18-way power-adjustable sport seats, and various carbon fiber interior trims.
The 2022 Porsche Macan gets a power upgrade across all variants. The base Macan with its 2.0-liter turbo inline-4 now produces 261 hp and 370 Nm of torque. The upgrade shaves 0.2 seconds from its 0-100 kph time, which is now at 6.4 seconds (or 6.2 with the optional Sport Chrono package).
Up next is the Macan S, whose 2.9-liter turbo V6 is the sa me as last year’s GTS variant, meaning it now produces 380 hp and 520 Nm of torque. As a result, the new Macan S is half a second faster to 100 kph, now at 4.8 seconds (or 4.6 with the optional Sport Chrono package).
Lastly, the peak of the range for now is the Macan GTS, whose 2.9-liter V6 turbo engine now produces 440 hp and 550 Nm of torque, which are almost similar figures to the top-of-the-line Macan Turbo. 0-100 kph now happens in 4.5 seconds or 4.3 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. The Turbo variant will follow soon.
Whichever engine you choose, all come as standard with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and permanent all-wheel drive (AWD).
The 2022 Porsche Macan will go on sale in European markets first before the end of the year, while a Philippine launch could happen in early to mid-2022.
