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
