Porsche Macan receiving significant exterior redesign prompted by the Range Rover Evoque to look more aggressive and bold
Spyphotos of the upcoming Porsche Macan entry-level SUV have shown it looking like basically a squished Porsche Cayenne. The Audi Q5 platform based SUV will apparently undergo a large redesign to differentiate it more from the Cayenne. Porsche admits the Range Rover Evoque has inspired the styling change. Straight from Porsche design chief Michael Mauer, “As the person responsible for the look of the cars, I'm not afraid to make changes. When I saw the Evoque, I thought, interesting. I like it.”
We will see the Macan officially revealed next year prior to when it goes on sale in 2014. Expect to see bold lines as well as design elements from the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept. Expect a turbocharged model with a turbo V6 among other engines likely borrowed from the VW Group including a 2.0 turbo four-cylinder.
