Porsche is one of the best car manufacturers in the world. Their latest vehicle, the 2015 Porsche Macan offers a smooth drive and has an incredibly powerful engine. Let’s take a look at the 2015 Porsche Macan in detail:

Engine Specifications

The 2015 Porsche Macan is the definition of class. The fabulous appearance of this vehicle has a powerful engine to match.  There are two engine variants in the 2015 Porsche Macan. The first engine variant is a 3.0-liter. The engine is a V-type with 6 cylinders. This engine is without a doubt powerful. However, the second engine variant adds more power to the equation. The second engine variant is also a V-type with 6-cylinder. This engine has a capacity of 3.6 liters. The best part about both engine variants is that they are turbocharged. This guarantees superb performance.

Performance Rating

The 2015 Porsche Macan has a sport utility body style. The Macan can be fitted with an optional Sport Chrono package. This package ensures a snappier performance from the car. After installing the chrono package, you can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles an hour in about 5 seconds. The Macan has been set up with an all-wheel drivetrain system.

This drivetrain provides exceptional handling.  Another feature in the Macan is the PTM (Porsche Traction Management). This system manages the amount of torque that is sent to the wheels. The aim of this system is to prevent wheel spin and provide traction to the vehicle during gear shift and launch.

The Macan generates a staggering 400 ponies. This combined with the 406lbs per feet torque rating makes it a remarkable performance machine. This horsepower rating is for the 3.6-liter engine, but the 3.0-liter engine variant does not disappoint either. This engine generates 340 ponies and 339 pounds of torque per feet. The 2015 Porsche Macan is a compact SUV, which is why it also has an off-road mode. So, feel free to take it for a spin on rough terrain.

Transmission Options

The 2015 Porsche Macan features a 7-Speed Porsche Transmission. This transmission is known as the Porsche Doppelkupplung. This transmission is standard across all variants of the 2015 Porsche Macan. Not only does the transmission provide the Macan with seamless shifting, but zippy acceleration.

Interior Styling

The 2015 Porsche Macan is a sporty machine. However, the interior boasts luxury. Not only are the seats luxurious, there is sufficient legroom for the front and rear passengers. You can easily accommodate 5 passengers in the Macan. The trim is without a doubt, elegant, yet snappy. When it comes to a compact SUV, cargo space is a concern. With the Porsche Macan, you get a lot of cargo room as well. The best part is that you can recline the rear seats to extend the cargo room further.

Exterior Design

The 2015 Porsche Macan retains the appearance of the previous model. However, the company has managed to add a few fresh touches to it. This gives the Macan a unique aesthetic appeal.

All in all, the 2015 Porsche Macan is a great car to own. Not only is it a pleasure to drive but it is comfortable as well.  The 2015 Porsche Macan is a compact SUV that your family will love. The best part is that you can take it for a spin on the track every now and then.
