Test-driving the Porsche Macan SUV in Singapore – CNA Luxury

HEIGHTENED TACTILE PLEASURE

Inside the cockpit, the newly designed centre console is now very neatly arranged and its touch surface controls are a lovely upgrade from previous tactile buttons. Topped with an analogue clock on the dashboard for even sportier feels.

It’s a cinch to pair your phone to the Porsche Connect operating system and, might I add, enhanced performance also meets enhanced pleasure as the digital interface of the 10.9-inch full HD touch display is a joy to behold.

And expect nothing less than premium acoustics with your music flowing through BOSE or higher end Burmester surround sound systems.

Just two niggles, though: The new, shorter selector lever is not as wieldy as one would hope, and there was no wireless charging in the unit we drove. No USB Type A ports either, so my poor iPhone was positively parched by the end of the day.

As a final footnote, this Macan is most likely the last of its kind to be equipped with a pure internal combustion engine, as the entire automotive industry hurtles toward an electric future. So if you love some throaty vocals, grab the S while you still can.
