The Macan is the sportscar of the compact SUV segment. A Porsche through and through, the Macan is setting benchmarks in terms of driving dynamics and enjoyment – both on paved streets and off-road terrain. The Porsche Macan is now available in New Zealand from $109,900.
The turbocharged two-liter engine in the Macan delivers 185 kW (252 hp) from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm and comes standard with a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission like all Macan models. As a result, the Macan delivers impressive acceleration: It 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 in-line four-cylinder engine is designed to be particularly sporty and efficient: It operates with up to two bar of boost pressure, charge-air cooling, petrol direct injection and variable valve timing. VarioCam Plus adapts the intake and exhaust cam-shaft continually and also controls the lift of the exhaust valves. Its powerful 370 Nm of torque available between 1.600 rpm and 4.500 rpm, for instance, enables fast overtaking manoeuvres.
As is characteristic for all Porsche models, the Macan is capable of converting its engine power into exceptionally sporty driving dynamics. This is ensured by the standard Porsche Traction Management PTM active all-wheel drive system in inter-play with an agile suspension and precise steering. 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, which translates into agile handling.
The new entry-level model only differs from other Macan models in its details. Exterior distinguishing characteristics are side window trim strips in black, brake callipers in back and an exhaust system with two single tailpipes made of brushed stainless steel. Many of the vehicle’s standard features are the same as the other models in the Macan range including the latest generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM), a lane-departure warning system and a powered tailgate.
