About PORSCHE MACAN

Porsche’s second performance SUV is the Macan, this time it is a lot more compact and agile than the Cayenne. Its name comes from the Indonesian word for tiger. And the Macan really does live up to its name: powerful and ready to pounce at any time, yet light-footed and tenacious on off-road terrain.

The Macan combines the typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from the outset. The sporting DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is immediately recognisable in the design, with several styling cues being taken from other Porsche sports cars and then enhanced for the Macan. It is therefore clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan is the first compact SUV that is also a sports car. Technical highlights include Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive and the Porsche PDK double-clutch transmission fitted as standard.

With a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine and 258 bhp; the Macan S Diesel is the long-distance sports car. The Macan is the first Porsche model to break into the compact SUV segment and is poised to set new standards in the field of driving dynamics and enjoyment – on both paved streets and uneven terrain. The Macan combines the typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from the outset: maximum acceleration and braking values, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision. Many of the design elements have been taken from other Porsche sportscars and enhanced for the Macan, making it clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan heralds the first sports car in the compact SUV segment. The Macan is ‘Made in Germany’, produced at the Leipzig factory. The Macan brings proven Porsche values of maximum acceleration and braking performance, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision for the first time to the compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) segment

Our Verdict

The Porsche Macan is somewhat like a mash up of Cayenne and a hatchback, but delivers an exciting package. It’s thrilling to drive the Macan and it’s the sportiest vehicle in its lot. The price of this vehicle is way higher than the Cayenne. Macan is one of the best 4X4 out there today. This means that the car is a strong performer which has a lot of grip and can perform in any condition possible. Although it is expensive to buy, it is a good value for money car as compared to competitors. The Macan comes equipped with all the performance and handling options of a sporty SUV and is roomier.
