In terms of design updates, the car comes with redesigned snout with an updated colour coding that makes the front face look wider. The top-spec GTS centre nose section comes in all black. The company has offered bits such as LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and Sport Design exterior mirrors standard on the model, while the inclusion of a new diffuser is new to the SUV.
The new Macan will be made available across all authorised Porsche dealerships in the country. The company has also promised four new showrooms that are set to open in the first half of 2022 that will bring the overall dealership network to nine locations in India.
