There are a few other updates scattered about the interior

Porsche continues testing an updated version of the Macan crossover SUV, and as such, our spy photographers are getting more opportunities to capture it in photos. The latest photos include one that reveals how Porsche's entry-level crossover changes on the inside. Though not radically different, there are some interesting updates.

Most notable is the inclusion of a much larger infotainment display. It's both taller and wider, so much so that it has displaced the air vents that, on the current model, appeared on either side. Those vents have morphed into slim, horizontal units, rather than vertical, and sit at the base of the center stack. The physical controls below the screen have also been adjusted ever so slightly, showing just one row of buttons, now. The center console looks pretty much unchanged, as does the rest of the dashboard.

There isn't much new to report on the outside. The prototype still shows reworked lights and grilles that help the new Macan look more like the latest Cayenne. The possible full-width taillights are still very well hidden, so we can't confirm their existence yet. Aside from those lights, we're also expecting Porsche to replace the twin-turbo 3.0-liter engine in the Macan S for a single-turbo version, while a turbo 2.9-liter V6 will appear in the Macan Turbo. The crossover will likely make its full debut this year.
