A Turbo Interior package adds a black leather interior with faux suede and carbon-fiber trim.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers now have an incredible range of choices in the 2017 Macan lineup, from an entry-level model with an affordable price tag to a new high-end model that should satisfy the need for speed.
