The new Porsche Macan 2019 comes with new and improved colors such as the Mamba Green Metallic, Dolomite Silver, and a few others. Adding on the new and improved lighting technology that works in a way where it adaptively distributes light and also a new 3D rear light panel. Furthermore, Porsche has made sure that their signature four point brake light remains.
As we step inside, we’re welcomed with new options that comes standard under the Premium Package. There’s now a 14-way power seat with memory function for both driver and front passenger. Also available is the comfort lighting package, Power Steering Plus, and Park Assist with BOSE Surround Sound system as standard.
You can also opt for a GT package which includes a sports steering wheel that looks similar to the one we get in the 911, an air ioniser which is a welcomed feature given the air quality these days and a heated windshield, which can be helpful when dealing with misting during rainy days or on a cold night in Genting Highlands.
Moving to the tech side of things, we get a new 10.9 inch Full HD touch screen with Porsche Communications Management. You can also tailor the user interface to suit your personal preference, along with voice control.
Improved engine and chassis
Offering a 2.0l turbocharged 4 cylinder that pushes out 252bhp and 370nms of torque that makes the century sprint in 6.7 seconds with a top speed of 225kph. That means this ‘family SUV’ runnabout gets to 100kph at almost the same time it takes a Golf GTi to do the same speed. Now with all that power, we still get a combined fuel efficiency of 8.1l/100km. Moving onto the chassis, it’s been fully overhauled with mixed size tyres, which measure 235 sections at the front and 255 sections in the rear for the most basic spec, which is of course customizable. This will be another factor that keeps your car glued in corners but if that isn’t enough, the car also comes with an all wheel drive PTM (Porsche Traction Management) system.
So, with all these new and improved features, we can say that you may want to consider the new Macan as it’s definitely refined if compared to the previous model. For RM455,000 with a four year warranty and a free maintenance package which consist of free parts an labor. Does the Macan offer a compelling package? Let us know in the comments section below!
