The journalists published photos from tests of a camouflaged prototype of the updated Porsche Macan. In the photographs, you can see not only the exterior of the compact crossover, but also its interior.

The Porsche Macan continues to be the brand’s best-selling vehicle, even though the current-generation model debuted back in 2014. The last time restyling for the compact crossover was presented in 2018. Before the model gets a fully electric version, Porsche decided to update the Porsche Macan again. A series of “spy” photos show a test prototype of the crossover.

The new images also show the interior of the new car, which looks almost identical to the previous version of the Porsche Macan, although Porsche has made some notable changes.

Porsche has replaced the physical buttons on the center console with sensory counterparts similar to those used in the modern Cayenne crossover. The gearshift switch is located in the same place as before. However, the overall design of the center console and dashboard remained unchanged. It looks like there is a new steering wheel as well.

Apparently, the new version of the Macan will be similar to the current version of the crossover. However, there are a few changes – the front and rear bumpers have been changed. We expect Porsche to change the graphics for the headlights and taillights as well. On the side, the new Macan has lost the sheet metal comb at the bottom of the doors.

There are no details about the composition of the motor range at the moment, although there are rumors that no changes are planned. The base engine should be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 242 horsepower, while the Macan Turbo will get a 2.9-liter V6 with 434 horsepower. We expect to see a refreshed Macan debut sometime this year, with an all-electric version of the crossover likely to arrive shortly thereafter.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Porsche introduced the Taycan Cross Turismo electric station wagon. The German brand has unveiled a versatile version of its all-electric Porsche Taycan, dubbed the Cross Turismo, boasting a huge glass roof and a special cross-country mode.
