Following an earlier sighting in wintry February, the upcoming, facelifted Porsche Macan has been spotted again testing on public roads, this time in a warmer climate. Here, the Macan facelift development vehicle appears much the same as the last time, boasting of a revised front fascia with LED daytime running lights now taking their places between the tops of the air intakes and below the headlamps.

Front and rear quarter panels, side mirrors, and lower sills appear identical to current car’s, whereas the rear end does receive detail changes. The tail lamps now appear to mimic the four-LED arrangement in the headlights, while the full-width sticker around them could point toward a Panamera-style treatment.

No exact details regarding the powertrain have been released, but the current powertrain line-up can be expected to appear in the facelift model range, which should include the present range of 2.0 and 3.0 litre petrol turbos, most likely with minor power hikes. The most potent of the current line-up is the 3.6 litre twin-turbo petrol unit in the Macan Turbo Performance Package, which offers 440 hp and 600 Nm of torque.

The latest petrol V6 in the Porsche range is the 2.9 biturbo unit in the Panamera 4S, which produces 440 hp at 5,650 rpm and 550 Nm from 1,750 to 5,500 rpm. It would make sense for this downsized engine to supersede the unit that is currently in service, although there has been no indication currently that the Macan line should move on to use the new engine.
