While Porsche was slated to reveal its new Macan at the LA Auto Show on November 20, it looks like Italian magazine Quattroruote beat them to it, releasing both images and a few specs on the upcoming model.
The 2015 Porsche Macan combines many technical performance aspects reminiscent of the Audi Q5 with an interior strongly inspired by the Porsche Cayenne and in fact, was codenamed “Cajun” for “Cayenne Junior.” It’s alleged that the midsize SUV will launch in Europe with three engine choices: a base 335hp “S” with a 3.0-liter force-fed V6, a 255hp “Diesel” with a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine, and a 395hp “Turbo” engine with a 3.6-liter turbocharged V6. Though the starting price of around $45,000 is expected to bring new customers to the normally sports car-centered brand, the SUV will still face competition from the likes of the Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes-Benz GLK, BMW X3, and the Audi Q5.
