2022 Porsche Macan Updated and Seriously Upgraded

The next-generation Porsche Macan will be all-electric so this one’s going out with more boost


  • This will be the second and final update to the first-generation Macan.

  • Interior changes include the adoption of the piano-black haptic center console similar to the Taycan.

  • All versions see outputs increase.


Porsche is readying the introduction of its next full-EV in the next-generation Macan but before it arrives sometime in 2023 or 2024, fans of the small SUV will be served with its best versions ever. Speaking of fans, more than 600,000 examples of the Macan have found new homes since the model arrived in 2014.

In the powertrain department, every trim will see its output increased. The base Macan’s turbocharged 2.0-litre engine gains 13 horsepower for a total of 261. The Macan S’ gets the previous GTS’ twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 while the actual GTS benefits from the Turbo’s 434 horsepower, from 370. The “old” Turbo will no longer be offered leading to believe the first Macan EV trim will be Turbo.

Physically, the 2022 Porsche Macan sees its front fascia redesigned for a wider and beefier look. 14 colours will be available while wheels sizes grow an inch for every version, from 19s for the base to 21s for the GTS.

The cabin gains a new Taycan and Cayenne-inspired console that does away with physical buttons. Instead, the gloss-black surface features controls with haptic feedback and a shorter shifter for a more upscale look. A new analog clock now sits proudly at the top of the dashboard as standard.

Many updates are focused on the new GTS. Porsche’s PASM suspension, which lowers the ride height by 10mm, will be standard, will be put to best use thanks to the new structural reinforcements. A new optional GTS Sport Package will further heighten the driving experience with Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), unique 21-inch wheels, and Sport Chrono.

The new 2022 Porsche Macan can be ordered as of now. Pricing for base Macan starts at $58,500 $, the Macan S from $70,600, while the Macan GTS goes for $85,500.
