It’s solely been a pair years since Porsche handled the Macan to a major refresh, and one other refresh is already right here. Say whats up to the 2022 Porsche Macan, by which Porsche fettles with nearly the whole lot, together with the styling, inside design/tech and powertrains.

The massive change on the surface is the Macan’s new entrance finish. You’ll discover the maw of the GTS is one large, black mass now, eschewing the physique shade cut up entrance bumper of the pre-refresh mannequin. There are nonetheless some horizontal body-colored components within the decrease bumper space, however the entrance grille and aspect intakes — now visually joined collectively into one entire piece — merely dominate the entrance of the Macan from the hood down. It’s a bit of jarring within the GTS, however Porsche made it a lot much less so within the Macan S. As a substitute of all black plastic in all places, the entrance bumper is cut up by a physique shade piece spanning the width of the entrance bumper that additionally reaches upward to separate the aspect intakes from the grille as soon as extra. It’s considerably simpler on the eyes at first look, however we’ll withhold remaining judgement on each for an in-person look.

Porsche modified up the automobile’s rear with a bigger diffuser. The edges characteristic a brand new 3-D textured aspect blade. Plus, it comes with the Sport Design mirrors normal. A complete of seven new wheel designs are being made out there, starting from 19-inch-to-21-inch choices.

 

The inside updates are what matter greater than the rest, although. Porsche has formally phased out the middle stack of bodily buttons in favor of the haptic contact middle management space seen in lots of different fashions such because the Cayenne and Panamera. It makes room for a bigger middle storage compartment, and Porsche built-in a brand new gear lever (shorter than earlier than) into the brand new console. What we do not get is the largely digitized instrument cluster out of these different fashions, as Porsche sticks with what it is used earlier than. One other important enhancement, although, is a newly out there GT Sport steering wheel taken out of the 911. New inside stitching choices embody Papaya, Gentian Blue and Chalk.

To our delight, however not shock, Porsche upped the ability output on each single one among its out there fashions. The brand new base Macan sees output rise to 261 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, will increase of 13 and 22 respectively. Porsche says the 0-60 mph time is 0.3 second faster than earlier than, dropping to five.8 seconds when outfitted with the Sport Chrono bundle.

The Macan S (pictured above) will get a bounce as much as 375 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque by advantage of it being gifted the two.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine from the pre-refresh GTS. Its 0-60 mph time drops by 0.5 second to 4.4 seconds; high pace rises to 160 mph, and PASM (Porsche Lively Suspension Administration) is normal.

With the 2021 GTS engine going downstream, which means Porsche wanted to drag from upstream for the 2022 GTS’ engine. It now will get the extra excessive model of that 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 from the pre-refresh Turbo mannequin. Making 434 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, it’s good for a 0-60 mph dash in simply 4.1 seconds and a 169-mph high pace — that’s 2 mph quicker than the Turbo might handle. It additionally will get Porsche’s PSCB brakes as normal and an adaptive air suspension with 10 mm decrease journey peak. Porsche says the suspension is 15% stiffer than earlier than and options new bump stops and strut mounts. The dampers are additionally recalibrated to supply a better vary of consolation and stiffness.

If you would like an much more excessive Macan GTS, Porsche is making a “GTS Sport Bundle” out there for 2022. It bundles collectively the Sport Chrono Bundle, Torque Vectoring Plus, 21-inch GT Design wheels, high-performance tires, 18-way Sport Seats and numerous different look extras to make the outside and inside look a bit extra aggressive.

You’re most likely questioning the place the Turbo mannequin is at this level. We’ve requested Porsche about it, and a spokesperson confirmed there could be no 2022 Turbo mannequin. If there’s one down the road (Porsche declined to touch upon the potential for a Turbo comeback), Porsche might want to discover much more energy than earlier than because the GTS stole the outdated Turbo’s engine.

Pricing is already out for each mannequin of the Macan. We’ve listed the beginning costs under. They’re all anticipated to succeed in dealerships within the spring of 2022.
