These wheels should be the one for standard Macan 2.0.

It's amazing that Europe test's everything. Our IIHS never does with real high end brands like Porsche. It's not like our insurance companies Stateside are broke.

I just found this same video on youtube and was going to post the link, but I found this post after searching

After watching many other crash tests, it is incredible that on the front and side crashes not even the glass shatters!

And after being personally involved in a crash like the last shown in the video, I can attest to the fantastic protection the Macan provides on a rear-end crash. Mine happened at a stand still, while the vehicle behind me was traveling at more than 60MPH and never touched the brakes.

Since the last post on this thread happened 3 years ago, I thought it may be a good idea to resurrect it.

Cheers and stay safe!

I'm glad someone resurrected this.

I'm impressed with Euro NCAP. Their tests seem more comprehensive than ours. They even have kids in the back.

Does anyone know the actual color of the tested car? I don't think it could be Night Blue Metallic? Even with a bunch of lights, I think that color would be too dark.

Someone claimed it was Dark Blue Metallic. Was that an available color in previous years? If so, I might well have ordered mine that way. The Night Blue was too dark for me, the Sapphire Blue was too bold. So I chose something completely different, Rhodium Silver.

It’s about time that IIHS (or NHTSA) crash tested a Macan, with its sales having increased so much. Yeah, I know they have limited budgets and so they can’t test lower volume vehicles, but IIHS states that “Exceptions also are made when manufacturers request and pay for testing.”

Hoping Porsche will take the risk and come up with the cash.

Most European car crash tests can be found by searching at the Euro NCAP site, then select 'videos'. https://www.euroncap.com/en#
