Make sure you get on with the "Running Boards". Most people do not spec them as they leave dirt on the back of your legs when you get out of the car.

Otherwise a decent amount of extra kit to the basic spec.

First post!

I was going to buy a new Macan however leadtimes are too long and I need something now so am looking at a MY21.

My question is what am I missing out on vs a MY23.

I understand the styling changes and touch centre console vs buttons.

But is the touch screen and software the same? And does the MY21 have Apple Car Play? I can't seem to find this info...

Many thanks in advance and welcome any thoughts!
Personally, you're gaining by having a 2021. Not a fan of the new design inside and out, and apple car play was on my 2021 Turbo πŸ‘πŸ»

You looking at base, S, GTS or Turbo?
Am looking at base or perhaps S. Just struggling mentally with paying as much used as I would for a new one!

If an S is within budget, get a decent test drive in a 2.0 and an S before buying. :)

As a running board owner I have never had an issue. It also keeps the car clean. No dirty trousers here...........

Test drive all the Macans that you can.

If you are baulking over the price of the car then a Porsche is not for you.

Buy wisely, but at least an S.

Consider a gen 1 perhaps. Fabulously analogue and traditional Porsche big sounding engine - if you get a petrol S, GTS or Turbo. A classic in waiting.
