Updates in the cabin haven’t been revealed, but it is certain that the facelifted 2018 Macan will get Porsche's latest technologies and designs such as all-new infotainment system or touch capacitive surfaces like in the Porsche Panamera.

Under the hood, the 2018 Porsche Macan facelift will be powered by new turbocharged V6 petrol engines from the second generation Panamera, which could replace the existing 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 and 3.6-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engines in the current Macan.
