The vehicle would be brought to the country through the CBU route.

The company is using a top-down strategy, launching the V6 variants first, followed by four-cylinder options sometime next year.

The car is based on a heavily modified Audi Q5 platform measuring 4,699 mm long, 1,923 mm wide and 1,624 mm tall which makes it 146 mm shorter, 16 mm narrower and 82 mm lower than the Cayenne.

Production of the Macan began in February at an expanded Leipzig plant, which received an investment of 500 million Euros (Rs 4,194 crore) to unlock the extra capacity.
