2015 Porsche Macan S: Its Simplicity Is Welcome

November 7, 2014

2015 Porsche Macan S

The fact that Porsche stuck with its tried and true instrument panel setup that puts the tachometer front and center is great, but I would have been satisfied with analog gauges regardless of where the tachometer was placed.

I say this because there's a growing trend of replacing actual gauges with virtual gauges. It allows for better integration with all of the extra features that some people want, but it makes for a far less interesting layout.

Instead of deep-seated binnacles to house real gauges, the virtual needles sit on a flat screen spread across the dash. It's a subtle distinction that some might not notice. Personally I find such setups bland looking and out of place in a luxury car. Glad to see Porsche hasn't succumbed to the draw of the virtual world.
