The Porsche Macan facelift has been redesigned that allows the front to appear wider. The front looks sleeker with the new grille and sportier air dams. The headlamps have also been revised and get an all-LED set-up, while the taillights feature LEDs too and are inspired by the new 911.
The Porsche Macan comes with a new sleek-looking LED taillamp, connected by an LED strip. The SUV gets a quad exhaust system and is offered in four new exterior colour options - Miami Blue, Mamba Green Metallic, Dolomite Silver Metallic, and Crayon.
