The revised version of the Porsche Macan is debuting at Paris at the same time as dealer open order books.

Since its launch in 2014 the Macan has become Porsche’s fastest-selling car, but it is now facing a host of new challengers in its market, including the BMW X4, Jaguar F-Pace and Audi Q5.

Updates to the Macan range across the engine, chassis and cockpit as well as external styling tweaks.

Initially the car will be available with a 2-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine improved to put out 245hp and 370Nm of torque, and combined with a seven-speed double-clutch gearbox and four-wheel drive,.

This will produce a 0-62mph time of 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 139mph, with fuel economy of 34.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 185g/km, under the new WLTP protocol.

The engine line-up is set to grow, adding V6 engines in higher-rated S versions of the SUV. But there are not expected to be any diesels, Porsche having previously announced that it would be moving away form offering diesel versions of its cars.

Changes to the chassis include the development of new tyres with improved cornering characteristics, the Macan using differently sized tyres front and rear.

Visually the Macan gains changes designed to make it look wider and more purposeful. These include a redesigned front bumper and LED projector headlamps, together with an LED strip running right across the rear of the car between the light clusters. Four new exterior colours are also now available.

A new Porsche Communication Management System is added inside, based on a touchscreen now 10.9 inches wide instead of the previous 7.2 inches. It offers navigation,  phone integration, audio systems and voice control, while a connected system includes a wi-fi hotspot.

Prices for the new Macan start from £46,344.
