With its dyn a m i c  o v e r a l l look, the new Porsche Macan is unmistakably a sports car whose redesigned rear appears extremely powerful.

Like a bold line under its own signature, the new characteristic taillight strip emphasizes the Porsche logo, enhanced by the new four-point brake lights, both functionally and visually.The Porsche brand is now beginning to be popular in Zimbabwe with most executives now cruising around with the vehicle because of its flexibility as both a vehicle for leisure and serious business.

“We have proven that we will not be dictated to. Do not follow trends. But prefer to write our own adventure stories. Such as that of a compact SUV that inextricably combines sportiness, design and everyday practicality: the new Macan,” said the motor company.

The broad shoulders above its rear wheels are reminiscent of the 911 and a further visual demonstration of the road hugging nature of the new Macan.Its flank is also typically Porsche.

From this angle, every muscle appears to be energised – like a predator ready to pounce. Its roof line slopes to the rear just like a coupé, thereby creating a characteristic sports car contour with high aerodynamic quality. Our designers call this the Porsche fly line.

You are seeking one experience after another. Of course you want to maintain an overview; the sporty front seats convey a typical Macan feeling. You may sit high above the road, yet you are still closely connected to it.As a sports car manufacturer, the company understands that a car and its driver must form a single entity. So you do not simply sit in the Macan – but, thanks to its architecture, you are integrated into the vehicle. The three-dimensional arrangement of the controls lends the interior a cockpit character. The distance be tween the standard multifunction steering wheel and the PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) gear selector, as well as the main vehicle functions, is extremely short through the ascending center console, characteristic of sports cars. The ignition is on the left – as is typical of Porsche. One highlight of which the company is particularly proud of is the new 10.9 inch touchscreen display in Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The new design boasts full-High Definition resolution and a personalised start screen. The new, intuitive menu provides even faster access to the main functions.

“It is no longer just about mobility, we do not simply drive in order to travel from A to B. Along the way, there is much to discover. And to experience. Every second, we want to feel that our life is dynamic. On the road.

“And in our sports car,” said the car manufacturer.

Always focusing on absolute performance as car fanatics would expect of a genuine sports car.

The Porsche delivers more than power alone, such as the active all-wheel drive system Porsche Traction Management (PTM), for instance; traction, outstanding steering and exceptional handling – clear evidence of traditional Porsche engineering.

Comfort on the vehicle is also in plenty and of course, with all the sporty and control features. The optional air suspension guarantees a constant ride height on any terrain.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) also actively and continuously adjusts damping force. For each individual wheel, the result remains increased comfort and sportiness in all seats.

“Our lives are eclectic – and thrilling. We are constantly on the move. And want to know what is happening around us.” The new 10.9 inch touchscreen display with full-HD resolution provides even more interfaces with your next adventure. The personalised start screen is intuitive to use.

The vehicle’s standard online navigation system ensures that you arrive at your next adventure even more quickly.

Its Connect Plus assists you with Real-time Traffic Information and online map updates. The Porsche Connect app allows you to determine your preferred destination and send it to your Macan.

What else do you need for your journey? Your own soundtrack, of course: with the music streaming function of the Porsche Connect app. With this vehicle you are always on tour. The pulse sets the pace. The first chord shakes the world.

The sound reverberates through every fiber. The feeling of being alive.
