2019 Porsche Macan Prototype comes at a right time to save the manufacturer from the loss in a market game with strong and every year better competition. Even though Audi, Jaguar and Alfa Romeo have already improved their high luxury SUVs, Macan somehow remained the same until now. This cute and very attractive Cayenne sibling has always been interesting to young buyers, so the manufacturer finally redesigned it and changed few things to be even better in years to come.
Even though the manufacturer had much reason to change it, 2019 Porsche Macan Prototype is made on the old platform used for replaced Ingolstadt. We expect that they were changed at least suspensions and wheels, things that were not good on the last model. The model that we saw on test driving had new LED front lights on the sides of the redesigned gridded grille and on obviously wider front end. The rear lights are changed, but the space between them was covered on test driving (is that mean LED line instead of classic lights?). However, there is new and modernized small SUV on the market.
We were able to see the cabin in 2019 Porsche Macan Prototype on spy photos and first surprised us lack of touch-sensitive controls on the dashboard that we saw in the third generation of Cayenne and new Panamera. The manufacturer has time to change it, but according to this, we should expect old-fashioned buttons in the cabin. Besides that, the manufacturer replaced old 7.0-inch touchscreen with 12.3-inch one.
It is expected that current engines in Macan 3.0-liter and 3.6-liter V6 will be replaced with better solutions like 2.9-liter and 3.0-liter turbo petrol units. Those are supposed to be smoother, but faster and more efficient. Highest trim should have 440 horsepower of strength, which is way weaker than on competition, so we expect something stronger this time, to produce at least 500 horsepower of strength. Even though rumors announced a diesel engine in an offer for next model, that will not happen due to last year scandal, but there are expectations that there could be offered a hybrid version like 2019 Cayenne E-Hybrid.

It is more likely that it will be presented at Paris Auto Show in October. However, new Macan is made to compete with greatest models that have already improved their features in past few years, like Jaguar F-Pace SVR, Alfa Romeo Stevio Quadrifoglio, or Audi Q5.
