The Porsche Macan is the latest new model to be revealed thanks to the emergence of unauthorised images hitting the web before the official launch. Here you can see a series of images released from a forthcoming issue of Auto Motor und Sport.
Our first impression is one of approval although the styling of that front end may take some getting used to. Some finer mesh in the grille is the immediate thought of what is missing, but perhaps over time that simpler, almost crude, industrial look will rest more easily.
We’re not so sure we can say the same for the side scuff panel running along the lower edge of the doors. On a silver car it just looks like a tacky add-on.
In the article the Macan is compared against an Audi Q5 with a V6 diesel engine. It’s expected Porsche’s baby SUV will be sold initially with a 3.6 litre V6 petrol engine with 340PS (250kW) for the Macan S and 400PS (295kW) for the Macan Turbo.
