More functionality and individuality for the Porsche Macan

To coincide with the world premiere of the Macan GTS at the Tokyo Motor Show 2015, Porsche is significantly upgrading the new model year of its compact SUV. Enhanced features for all models of the sporty SUV include, the innovative Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system, which debuted in the new 911 and optional full-LED headlights. Greater comfort and functionality are augmented by an increase in sportiness, with a re-engineered steering controller providing a more direct handling experience and improved contact with the road. A range of extended exterior and interior packages are also available as options exclusively for the Macan Turbo, enabling customers to add even more individual styling to their vehicle.

The new PCM generation: easier operation and improved connectivity
A key feature of the infotainment system which now comes as standard in all Macan models, is the new high-resolution seven-inch touchscreen. The redesigned user interface employs intuitive operation, similar to that of a smartphone. If the proximity sensor detects a command input, all relevant menu contents are displayed. Menu items can then be selected by means of multi-touch gestures. Various Bluetooth, USB and SD interfaces allow integration of smartphones and storage media with the PCM.

LED headlights in a dynamic design
For the first time, the Macan includes full-LED headlights in connection with the optional Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus). The new headlights assist the driver with their beam colour similar to daylight and improved range while simultaneously using less energy.

Lighting features include daytime running lights in the prominent Porsche four-point design. The dynamic light design is underlined by the interplay between the dark inserts of the headlights and the four silver-anodised LEDs. Striking chrome trim surrounds give the black main projector a special three-dimensional structure. Instead of the bi-xenon headlights’ round projection lens and auxiliary lamps, the LED versions have a centrally arranged projection module for dipped and main beam. Additional lighting modules provide further functional features such as cornering or intersection lights. PDLS Plus encompasses the familiar lighting functions of dynamic cornering and country road light as well as a separate mode for motorway sections and adverse weather conditions. The camera-based dynamic main beam function eases the burden for the driver thanks to automatic adjustment of the lighting range during night driving. Based on the navigation data from the PCM, the intersection light activates an additional lamp unit to deliver the best possible illumination of the area into which the vehicle is turning.

For that special sporty appearance: the Macan Turbo packages
Inspired by the styling of its GTS models, Porsche for the first time is offering additional exterior and interior packages for the Macan Turbo. A variety of design elements on the cars’ body give the powerful compact SUV an especially sporty look. 21-inch wheels in 911 Turbo design, with exclusive bi-colour design, Sport Design door mirrors and wheel hub covers with coloured Porsche crest create an even sportier look for the car.

Contrasting elements in high-gloss black decorate the air inlets and side blades, as well as the trim strips on the side windows and the rear underbody panel. Blending harmoniously with the colour scheme of the Sport Design lower rear apron, the sports exhaust system features black tailpipes with smoked rear lights rounding off the individual appearance of the top model. Inspired by the GTS models, Alcantara trim covers the centre panels of the seats, armrests of the centre console and door panelling. Decorative contrast stitching in either Rhodium Silver or Garnet Red can be found on the instrument panel, seats and door panels, providing further interior highlights. Turbo lettering on the headrests in contrasting colours and illuminated carbon door sill plates, announce the performance potential of the 400 hp premium SUV even while it is stationary.

The newly introduced styling packages can be ordered independently of each other, but when combined create an even sportier and exclusive appearance. In addition to the new interior features, new exterior paint colours are available for all Macan models. Decorative stitching in contrasting colours and centre panels of the seats in an alternative colour present even more scope for individualisation. The new Porsche Macan models will be officially launched from early 2016 onwards and are available for order now.

Macan S BHD 26,200
