2015 Porsche Macan: Rear Visibility
February 5, 2015
I was sitting in our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S adjusting everything the way I like before my drive home from the office.
Someone much taller than me had driven the Macan last, so I took some time getting the seat position just right. Then I went for the mirrors. The driver-side and passenger-side mirrors are large and well-shaped. They allow for a good view of the sides of the car. They are very useful when changing lanes on the freeway. And the side windows give a good view when you peek around before moving. I have no problem with front and side visibility in the Macan.
But the rearview mirror is oddly shaped. It almost seems like it's upside-down to me. Combine that with the way the rear window is slanted and the view you get out the back is just a slice.
I was glad for the additional help from the rearview camera when backing out of my spot in our busy garage.
