While styling traits of the Porsche Macan aren’t focused on in the following teaser video, the first image showcases a small SUV with headlights featuring quad LEDs just like the Porsche 918 Spyder.
While the smaller visual traits of the Porsche Macan are a closely guarded secret at the moment, numerous details about the Porsche Macan were recently released.
At launch, the Porsche Macan Turbo will feature a top of the range 3.6 litre V6 turbocharged engine with 400hp whereas its diesel alternative, the Porsche Macan S will get a supercharged 335bhp and 339lb 3.0 litre V6 whilst the Diesel S will feature a 254hp and 428lb-ft turbocharged engine. A choice of either a standard six-speed manual or optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox will be made available, steering is electro-mechanical. It seems that those wanting a four-cylinder engine will have to wait a little longer!
From a design perspective, the front bonnet looks interesting with a clamshell designed to supply much needed air to the front-mounted engine. The Porsche Macan is 70mm longer, 44mm wider and 29mm lower than the Audi Q5. Porsche will be hoping that they have a more attractive prospect than the 5-year old Audi Q5, it certainly looks promising!
