The Macan's dynamic design theme continues into the black leather and Alcantara- lined cabin.

The Macan's instrument cluster is an amalgam of digital and analog. As in all Porsches, the tachometer sits front and center. It's flanked by a 4.8-inch TFT display.

The Macan is equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen running the brand's PCM infotainment system. Unfortunately, it's not the widescreen affair found in the second generation Panamera sedan.

For the most part, PCM or Porsche Communication Management is a solid infotainment system. Its overall layout, although a bit dull in design, is logically organized and easy to learn. The touchscreen is responsive while the navigation system is fairly intuitive. PCM is also available with Apple CarPlay integration if you prefer to go that route. 

PCM is also tasked with controlling the Macan's 14-speaker, 665-watt Bose Surround Sound system. To be honest, I didn't use the sound system all that much. Instead, I spent most of my time in the car enjoying the beautiful sounds emanating from the Macan's quad exhaust. 

Much like Porsche's two-door sports cars, the center console is button-heavy so that all of its features are easily accessible and within arms reach. Important for when the driver is tackling a challenging strip of asphalt.

The Macan's second row has ample room for two passengers. Add a third, though, and things get cramped. There's plenty of headroom even with the raked rear roofline. Unfortunately, rearward visibility is pretty poor.

One complaint I do have is the lack of storage. It may seem trivial, but the dearth of places to keep things such as your phone and wallet reflects poorly on the Macan's everyday utility. Especially when compared to its corporate cousin, the Audi SQ5.
