What’s New for 2023

Last but not least, Miami Blue has been discontinued while Mahogany Metallic has been replaced with Copper Ruby Metallic.


What the Critics Say

“Quickness is important in a crossover with sporting intentions, but we wouldn’t be nearly as impressed with the Macan if it weren’t for its all-around competence on the road. It feels remarkably like a sports sedan. The ride is wonderfully smooth and carefully controlled, and it’s rare for a jolt from the pavement to make itself known to the driver.” — Car and Driver

“The Porsche Macan is a compact SUV with performance that lives up to the crest on its hood. The dream of the SUV that drives like a sports car is alive in the Macan in much the same way that it is in the bigger Cayenne. The difference is the Macan has a smaller footprint and less weight, making it more agile.” — Kelley Blue Book
