Porsche is freshening up the Macan high-performance crossover with a series of updates for 2016.
The Macan recently received a new GTS version, but it seems it’s not the only novelty Porsche is planning for next year as the Stuttgart-based manufacturer has announced all models will come as standard with the newest Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The latest iteration of their infotainment system makes use of a seven-inch high-resolution touchscreen display with support for multi-touch gestures, Bluetooth, USB, SD, Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay.
In addition, the optional Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) now includes full LED cornering headlights featuring a camera-based dynamic main beam function to make the necessary adjustments automatically when driving at night. Using the navigation data provided by the car’s PCM, the intersection light will activate an additional lamp to grant optimal illumination of the area into which the Macan is turning.
Go for the Macan Turbo and there are now new customization packages bringing cosmetic tweaks both inside and out. The interior kit encompasses an extended Alcantara trim and contrasting stitching, “Turbo” lettering on the headrests, illuminated door sill plates along with Rhodium Silver or Garnet Red decorative stitching applied onto the door panels, seats and instrument panel.
As for the exterior package, it contains bi-color 21-inch wheels sourced from the 911 Turbo, glossy black air inlets and side blades, Sport Design side mirrors, black tailpipes for the sports exhaust system along with smoked taillights and trim strips on the rear underbody panel as well as on the side windows.
Lastly, Porsche will offer the 2016 Macan with additional body colors, an optional Alcantara-trimmed heated steering wheel, along with fresh decorative stitching in contrasting colors and new alternative hues for the center panels of the seats.
The revised Macan is already available for order in Germany and will start hitting dealerships early 2016 at the following prices: €61,143 Macan S, €60,548 Macan S Diesel, €73,400 Macan GTS and €83,753 for the range-topping Macan Turbo.
