Just the Facts:
  • The 2014 Porsche Macan, the so-called "baby Cayenne," is being teased ahead of a November debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
  • Porsche says the Macan has "defining facial features," including "a dynamic front with characteristic headlights."

STUTTGART, Germany — The 2014 Porsche Macan, the so-called "baby Cayenne," is being teased ahead of a November debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. A new microsite has been launched by the automaker that promises regular updates on the car.

Porsche says the Macan has "defining facial features," including "a dynamic front with characteristic headlights." It will have all-wheel drive and a raised seating position.

"The large air intakes are just waiting to inhale life," Porsche said. "The side profile is sharply contoured by the sporty sloping roof line. With improved aerodynamic quality. Our designers call it the Porsche flyline."

The German automaker is not calling it a small luxury crossover SUV, but a "sports car with five doors and five seats."

"We've built what we always build: a sports car," Porsche said. "Five doors, five seats and yet intimate with the road."

No powertrain details have been released at this point, but there is rampant speculation that the base Macan may be equipped with a four-cylinder engine. Porsche is expected to offer a pair of new 290-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 engines and a 350-hp twin-turbo engine. Porsche's seven-speed PDK automated dual-clutch manual will likely be the only available transmission.

The Macan is expected to go on sale in the spring.

Edmunds says: The Porsche Macan will be one of the most high profile debuts at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Porsche is not wasting any time promoting it well ahead of the event.
