Exterior and interior
In terms of external appearance, the 2020 Porsche Macan features an attractive and handsome design. Up front, there is a sporty grille and revised headlamps with four-point LED lighting.

Furthermore, the rear end there are the same taillights similar to the ones found in the 911model and the LED strip with Porsche letter. As well, the Porsche will also offer new wheels.
The interior of the 2020 Porsche Macan is well designed and the first thing we will notice is the larger 11.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system on the dashboard. The manufacturer will also offer more equipment, a sportier steering wheel, and new trim options.
Release date and price
The newest 2020 Porsche Macan might arrive sometime at the end of next year. The price probably won’t be much different from the outgoing model which is around $47,800 for the base version.
