Porsche wants the current Macan to have a broader appeal, so it introduced a new entry-level version of its smallest SUV. Starting this Spring, the Macan will be available with a new four-cylinder turbo engine. 

The new unit delivers 252 hp from 5.000 to 6.800 rpm and comes standard with a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission like all Macans. The four cylinder turbo also offers 370 Nm of torque available between 1.600 rpm and 4.500 rpm. As a result, the Macan is capable of reaching 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds, and with the optional Sport Chrono-Package, the time is reduced to 6.5 seconds. The top speed is 229 km/h. In terms of fuel consumption, the Macan consumes 7.4 l/100 km to 7.2 l/100 km.

The new version also has standard Porsche Traction Management PTM active all-wheel drive system. An air suspension system with levelling control including the PASM with adaptive dampers is available as an option. With an unladen weight of 1.770 kilograms, the Macan is the lightest SUV made by Porsche.

The car will be distinguished also thanks to its equipment. It has side window trim strips in black, also black brake callipers in back of the 18-inch wheels and an exhaust system with two single tailpipes made of brushed stainless steel. Many of the vehicle’s standard features are the same as those in the S models. For example, the Macan has comfort seats with electric eight-way adjustment on the driver’s side, Alcantara middle seat panels, the latest generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM), a lane-departure warning system and a powered tailgate.

The Macan is available to order now and starts at 55.669 Euro in Germany including VAT. The market launch will take place in June 2016.
