100% is not enough. At least when building a Porsche. This is what repeatedly drives us. And spurs us on to greater things. The most recent being the Macan Turbo with Performance Package.
The figures simply speak for themselves: the 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 engine produces 324 kW (440 hp) and delivers an additional 30 kW (40 hp) more than the Macan Turbo. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds – making it four tenths faster. Its top speed: 272 km/h. Performance that befits the ultra-modern, efficient 6-cylinder engine.
The Sport Chrono Package piles on even more excitement to the Macan Turbo: the SPORT PLUS button makes the engine more responsive, the rev-limiter is adjusted to a harder setting, and the shift times become even shorter.
The Launch Control function ensures optimum acceleration from a standing start. The sports exhaust system delivers the typical Porsche sound at the touch of a button and in its most powerful, resonant form.
Extremely close to the action: the steel spring suspension is lowered by 15 mm and has adaptive dampers (PASM), to guarantee improved road holding. From 100% we deliver peak performance. And then continue to improve.Book Your Test Drive
Some of us focus on leisure time, while for others family comes first. The Macan is prepared for the many challenges of life. Under the bonnet, we see a 2-litre fourcylinder engine – yet we still claim that this a sports car? Of course we do. It is a Porsche after all.
Those who prefer to blaze a trail of their own don't need to follow the lead of others. We're thinking specifically about cars known as compact SUVs, characterised by five doors, five seats, all-wheel drive - and, of course, a higher sitting position. But aren't they lacking a certain something? Something that adds a little life, lets us enjoy a more intimate relationship with the road and delivers intense driving pleasure. A concept that boasts plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intense, but still powerful. Practical but never ordinary.
Would you prefer to experience the gear change or the driving pleasure? No contest. The new Macan is equipped with the 7-speed PDK transmission, which changes gear in fractions of a second with no interruption in the flow of power. The advantage is that, whenever a particular gear is engaged, the next gear is already preselected. As the clutch of the engaged gear opens, the clutch of the target gear closes simultaneously. The effect is a sporty, dynamic and agile driving feel.
For a high level of comfort and tremendous dynamic performance, you have the option of an air suspension including PASM. With this setup, the car is 15 mm lower than with the sports suspension, while the Macan GTS sits 10 mm lower than the Macan S with air suspension. The effect? A generous spread of ride comfort and dynamic performance. The self-levelling function helps to keep the ride height constant.
The seats offer racing-style support and a high degree of seating comfort. In cars with the driver memory package or comfort memory package, you can store personalised seat, steering wheel and exterior mirror settings. Your car will then adapt automatically to you. In the Macan GTS, exclusive eight-way Sports seats convey the thrilling feel typical of a genuine sports car, while ‘GTS’ logos embroidered on the headrests catch the eye. Even more exclusive: the Turbo interior package comes with a full leather interior in black, selected items in Alcantara®, embroidered ‘turbo’ logos and precisely defined contrasts.
All Macan models are equipped, as standard, with full-size airbags for the driver and front passenger. These are supplemented by the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP).
It comprises side airbags in the front seats, curtain airbags along the entire roof frame and the side windows from the A-pillar to the C-pillar, and side impact protection elements in the doors. Side airbags are standard for the rear compartment.
Two auxiliary sensors in the bumper help to detect frontal collisions. A cluster of acceleration and yaw rate sensors detects a threat of rollover and triggers the curtain airbags and seat belt pretensioners.
