Porsche Macan facelift teased during a high-altitude testing

Porsche Macan facelift teased during a high-altitude testing

-    Porsche has officially revealed the test images of the updated Macan.

-    The facelifted Macan is expected to be revealed later this month.

-    It will get a revised styling and an updated feature list.

Porsche introduced the all-new Macan back in 2015. The baby SUV garnered a positive response across the globe selling 350,000 units worldwide. And now, Porsche has gotten busy with the mid-life update for the Macan. In keeping with their tradition, ahead of the official reveal, the Stuttgart-based carmaker takes their vehicles to a godforsaken place in order to test the off-roading capabilities. This time, the facelifted Macan has been teased undergoing high altitude testing in South Africa. 

The refreshed Macan was driven on rough asphalt, dusty gravel roads and mountain passages in South Africa. The testing crew of Ralf Bosch took the prototypes to a mountain in Lesotho reaching heights of 3400 metres above sea level. 

Under the camouflage, we know that the updated Macan will get a slightly tweaked cosmetic design along with added features and driver’s aids. Upfront, the headlamp shape will remain unchanged, the front bumpers will get a major redesign with added air-vents and repositioned louvres. The cabin layout might get a slight revision as well. 

Porsche might introduce a plug-in hybrid variant with the Macan facelift, but that has not been confirmed yet. It might also be joined by a new diesel powerplant since it still has a demand in the European market. The new diesel could be the twin-turbocharged unit which does duties in many Audis. But what the Macan needs the most is an even more powerful variant to take on the likes of upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLC 63 AMG or the Audi RS Q5

Post its international debut, Porsche will surely bring the Macan facelift to India.
