2017 Porsche Macan Exterior
Generally, the next-gen Porsche will keep its trademark and recognizable styling cues. The biggest news for the 2017 model year is that the GTS model will be offered. Because of its small proportions, the Macan will still look more like a hatchback rather than a compact SUV. The S and GTS models are easily recognizable by their round fog lights and a row of character lights beneath the bi-xenon headlamps.
On the other hand, the integrated fog lights and two horizontal blades which are integrated into the air inlets signal the approach of Macan Turbo. The side blades of the GTS model have a matte-black finish. As for the overall dimensions, the newcomer is 184,72 inches long, 82,6 inches wide, and 63,35 inches tall.
