The new Macan – built for a busy life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it. Direct and intimate. The term ‘sports SUV’ is no longer an oxymoron.Book Your Test Drive
Pure Porsche power and design, this marathon-running diesel SUV is at home both in the city or the open road.
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. It is by these standards that we created the new Macan, and saw it emerge with three distinct guises. Each one a sports car. Each one unmistakable in its own segment. Each one a genuine Porsche - from design and driving dynamics to equipment specification. From the ultra sporty S variant, and from the efficient marathon runner with diesel engine to the Turbo - which sets new performance standards in its vehicle class. All Macan models were developed, tested and built in keeping with the Porsche philosophy. That's where we take sporty style and performance from the racetrack and inject it into everyday driving. We make it as efficient as possible - and, of course, just as safe and comfortable. No efforts were spared until our engineers achieved their overriding development objective: the first sports car among compact SUVs. The new Macan - built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present, and in which new challenges are a permanent driving force. Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it. Direct and intimate. A sports car that gives us what we're looking for, even in our everyday life: that feeling of being alive. The new Porsche Macan. Life, intensified.
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.
Five doors. Five seats. Excellent everyday practicality - and an elevated sitting position. That's what you can expect of an SUV. Now let's consider what you can expect of a Porsche: sports car sensations. You get in - and find the ignition lock on the left. It's typically Porsche, and has been since 1948. An old motorsport tradition. The interior architecture integrates you perfectly into the vehicle. This is exemplified by the three-dimensional arrangement of the controls and the ascending centre console with control buttons for the most important comfort functions. The layout emulates that of the Carrera GT - it's as if you're sitting in a sports car. The Macan is the first ever Porsche to be equipped with the multifunction sports steering wheel with 918 Spyder design. Its appearance is futuristic and its design highly ergonomic. Gearshift paddles as well as multifunction buttons for telephone, radio and on-board computer offer high levels of user comfort. Steering wheel heating is available as an option. Sports car genes are also inherent in the three round instruments. The rev counter is positioned in the centre, exactly where it belongs in a sports car. In this way, you can see all the essentials at a glance when you're on the move - and keep up to speed with all relevant information. Take the high-resolution 4.8-inch colour screen in the instrument cluster as an example. It displays messages from the on-board computer and - in conjunction with PCM - shows the map of the navigation system. 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. Standard on-board features include twozone automatic climate control as well as remote central locking with remote closing. On principle, all controls are ergonomically arranged for the speedy control of desired functions. Practicality is also assured by storage solutions in the front and rear doors. Even large bottles are accommodated. The large luggage compartment offers a loading capacity of 500 litres. The rear bench seat has a split-folding ratio of 40 : 20 : 40. With the seats fully folded, available capacity increases to 1,500 litres. The use of exquisite materials such as leather brings exclusivity to ordinary life. The standard specification includes a leather steering wheel rim and seat centres in AlcantaraÂ - in the Macan Turbo, the adaptive Sports seats with 18-way adjustment are completely upholstered in leather. On request, you can refine even more interior features of your Macan with leather, wood, carbon or aluminium.
