2015 Porsche Macan S: Styling Gets Better Over Time
December 2, 2014
If you consider that there have been two generations of the midsize Cayenne, the 2015 Porsche Macan S represents Porsche designers' third attempt at styling an SUV. To my eyes, the Macan represents their biggest success, and it's all about the rear three-quarters angle.
Certainly, the Macan's smaller size offers more design leeway. No one expects it to be as practical, so you can get away with a faster roofline and, in consequence, a smaller cargo bay.
But just look at the difference in the rear taillight design between the Macan and Cayenne. The shape of the light is so much simpler, so much less fussy and, ultimately, so much more appealing. Every single SUV that Porsche has built to date has been rich and elegant on the inside, but only the Macan looks that way on the outside.
