Spy photographers captured images Porsche’s baby SUV sans disguise. The new Macan rides on the same platform as the Audi Q5 and upcoming Q6, a fact that is clearly demonstrated by the very Audi-esque wheels on the test vehicle.

The Macan has a larger grille, no creases on the bonnet, a sloped back and longer overhangs and the Macan and Cayenne will be differentiated by price, with the former offering more mainstream power trains borrowed from Audi, culminating with a 280kW V6 for the Macan Turbo.

This would make the top-of-the-range Macan produce 60kW more than the base-spec Cayenne. Think of it as the Cayman positioned below the 911 in Porsche’s line-up.

The Macan will reportedly be powered by the Porsche’s first four-cylinder engine since the 968 was phased out in 1995.
