Porsche initially struggled to get its design DNA work on an SUV, but they eventually got there. The Macan is a handsome crossover that's immediately recognizable as a product from the famed manufacturer of the 911. The front end has integrated air intakes in the body color, while the rear boasts LED taillights. The side blades have a 3D structured element, and the wheel size has been increased across the range. The base model gets 19-inch wheels, the Macan T gets model-specific 20s in a dark titanium finish, and the GTS comes standard with a set of 21s. The GTS's alloys are a model-specific RS Spyder Design in satin black, which complements the Sport Exhaust System and its quartet of black tailpipes exceptionally well. The S gets four pipes finished in silver, while the base Macan gets twin trapezoidal pipes.
Compact dimensions are just one of the factors the Macan is so nimble. All Macan models are 186.1 inches long, 82.6 inches in width, and ride on a 110.5-inch wheelbase. The base models are 63.8 inches tall, while the GTS sits a full inch closer to the ground. From mirror-tip to mirror-tip, the Macan measures 82.6 inches. The entry-level Macan is a full two cylinders down on its siblings, which is why it has a lower curb weight of just 4,151 lbs. Macan T models weigh a little more, at 4,187 lbs, and the mid-range S model weighs 4,350 lbs. The GTS, with its additional power, is just 50 lbs heavier at an even 4,400 lbs.

Black and White are the only no-cost options. The metallic options retail for $700 Carrara White, Jet Black, Volcano Grey, Dolomite Silver, Gentian Blue, Night Blue, Papaya, and Mahogany. The three special colors add $2,910 to the cost of the Porsche Macan and include Chalk, Carmine Red, and Miami Blue. Porsche will also do a paint-to-sample for a hefty $11,430.
Porsche adds one model-specific color to the GTS palette. It's Python Green, which costs $2,910. You have to add a very long list of other options to get this color, including a heated steering wheel with carbon fiber trim, the GTS Sport Package, and carbon fiber door-sill guards. That means all in, to get a Python Green Macan, you need to add $15,600 to the price.
