Though the 2017 Porsche Macan may appear smaller than Cayenne, it features almost the same space as it and most of the exciting and powerful performance in a slightly cheaper package. After the introduction of the Porsche Macan brand in 2015, it didn’t take long before the company became best-selling among all the brands. Derived from the Audi Q5, this Macan is a generation that qualifies for a higher rank compact crossover SUV. This is because it has more room and performs much better than its predecessor.
2017 Porsche Macan – Body Design and Interior:
The exterior parts of the 2017 Porsche Macan feature the normal massive front-end intakes but a little sloppy to its prance roof pillars. The rear end is nicely fitted with LED lights that barely interfere with the wrap round tails. In the outer appearance, it is slightly toned down to a much urbaner friendly dimension.
In the interior parts, the cockpit is heavily fitted with buttons, switches, and knobs. It features an LCD touchscreen that is slightly above the dash plus another screen that is in the instrument cluster. For the cabin part, the 2017 Porsche Macan GTS behaves in a similar manner as a family wagon. It can hold a maximum of five people but for comfort-ability purposes, four adults are much better.
The Macan back bench splits to create a slim middle part that folds independently to form an armrest. All the three parts fold downwards to create more room for cargo and to render it a two-seater in a stylish manner. Fitted with leather and upholstery seats, this car has a standard audio speaker and a USB port. It also has a navigation system that has an infotainment system with easily access the web feeds and stream through the internet via the Aha Radio application. It links up with Porsche Car connect which is a mobile app that enables location tracking of the vehicle, data, and even remote unlocking.
