A Porsche success story, the Macan has quickly grown to be a strong, capable, and attractive addition to the Porsche family. Now, a new chapter is unfolding, and with it comes the next level of capability, luxury and performance.
Enhanced styling with familiar Porsche design DNA
Iconic Porsche styling is infused into every element of the 2022 Macan. The new and powerful presence of the Macan is complete with front-end integrated cooling air intakes, a rear-end extended black diffuser, and 3D textured side blades. While LED headlights and standard Sport Design exterior mirrors complete the updated appearance. Seven new wheel designs are also available, and the standard wheel size has increased to between 19 and 21 inches, depending on the model.
Befitting its new position as the top model, the updated Macan GTS has a number of striking design elements that distinguish it from the other models in the line-up: 21-inch RS Spyder Design wheels in satin black, Sport Design side skirts, clear LED taillights and a Sport Exhaust system with black tailpipes complete the look.
More power and increased performance
The emphasis of the Macans redesign is palced on performance. All 2022 models feature a standard 7-speed dual clutch PDK transmission, all-wheel drive and powertrains that are more powerful than those of their predecessors. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 261 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque – an increase of 13 hp and 22 lb.-ft. compared to the 2021 model it replaces. The result is 0 to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package (0.3 seconds quicker than previously) and a top track speed of 144 mph.
The Macan S is also equipped with a more powerful engine for the 2022 model year. Generating 375 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 from the outgoing Macan GTS now sits under the hood of the latest S model, with 60 mph reached from standstill in 4.4 seconds. While the GTS variant, fitted with a 434 hp version of the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 generating 406 lb.-ft. of torque sprints from 0 to 60 mph with optional Sport Chrono Package in 4.1 seconds and continues on to a top track speed of 169 mph. Befitting its status as the top performer in the range, the Macan GTS is fitted with Porsche Surface Coated Brakes with red calipers and adaptive air suspension with 10 mm lower ride height as standard.
Upgraded interior with new center console & advanced technology
The enhancements to the 2022 Macan models continue inside the car. The new – and shorter – gear lever integrates seamlessly into a new and more spacious console. A new GT Sport steering wheel. adopted from the 911, is available and offers the perfect interface between spirited drivers and the car. The 10.9 inch full-HD touchscreen in the Macan features standard navigation and can be optionally upgraded with enhanced audio systems. As a new option, interior packages with deviated stitching in Papaya, Gentian Blue and Chalk are also available.
The 2022 Macan models all come standard with Lane Departure Warning as well as front and rear Park Assist with a rear-view camera. Optional features include self-steering Park Assist, adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep and change Assist and blind spot monitoring.
Optional Sport Package for Macan GTS
As a new option, the dynamic capabilities and appearance of the new Macan GTS can be further enhanced with the new GTS Sport Package. It includes the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats, Sport Design mirrors with caps painted in high-gloss black, front and rear fascia as well as side skirts in satin black and 21-inch GT Design wheels shod with special high-performance tires. The interior of the GTS equipped with Sport Package is characterized by carbon fiber elements, deviated stitching and greater number of Race-Tex interior features.
