Launching in Malaysia by H1 2022 - Porsche Macan facelift 01

This is the 2022 Porsche Macan facelift, before the next-generation model that will be all-electric.

For greater clarity, it’s actually the second facelift; the first facelift made its global debut in 2018 and arrived here in 2019, the original Macan was unveiled in 2013 and was subsequently launched here in 2014.

Changes are subtle, with redesigned front and rear bumpers. The GTS variant gets the centre section of the front bumper finished in black, while other variants feature body-coloured inlays. The rear bumper gets a more pronounced diffuser element.

Standard across all variants of the Porsche Macan are adaptive LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and Sport Design exterior mirrors. Wheel sizes range from 19-inch to 21-inch depending on variant.

In terms of powertrains, all variants get a bump in power output. The base Macan with a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine makes 265 PS/400 Nm (up from 252 PS/370 Nm).

The Macan S now gets the 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo engine from the pre-facelift Macan GTS (replacing the 3.0-litre V6 single turbo unit) making 380 PS/520 Nm (up from 354 PS/480 Nm). The top dog Macan GTS with the same 2.9-litre mill makes 440 PS/550 Nm.

All engines are mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) that powers all four wheels.

The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) dampers, which are optional on the base Macan and standard for the S and GTS variants, have been revised for enhanced responsiveness.
