Porsche has updated the crossover Macan

Porsche has updated the crossover Macan

The Porsche Macan is six years old. The smallest SUV from Porsche will be on sale for at least another model year.

To be fair, Porsche’s strategy for the Macan, one of its best-selling models in the world, is a little confusing. As it stands, the SUV has been on sale since 2014 with two updates in 2016 and 2018. It looks like another update is in the works, albeit a very minor one.

In fact, the fact that the Stuttgart-based company is preparing another facelift of the current Macan when a new generation is being developed seems rather odd. The most logical explanation for this is that Porsche wants to keep the first-generation Macan on sale for another 12-18 months, until a successor appears.

Regardless of the automaker’s plans, the spies caught a camouflaged prototype with minimal camouflage. The only notable changes are limited to a different front bumper with additional air vents and a new rear bumper with a more aggressive diffuser. There may still be minor changes to the taillights and the LED strip that connects them, but at the moment it is impossible to notice.

Inside, the situation will be similar, with no major improvements foreseen, but according to preliminary information, a new steering wheel in Panamera style and minor infotainment fixes can be expected in the cabin, including two additional buttons below the screen.

Given the short remaining sales life of the current Porsche Macan, there are not likely to be changes under the hood as most of the crossover’s engines have recently been updated. The facelifted 2021 Macan is expected to debut in the first weeks of 2021. With a brand new model on the horizon, Porsche will rush to launch the final facelift of the outgoing model before it is too late.
