The Macan celebrated its world premiere at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. The newest model to the Porsche model range is the automaker's fifth model line and first entry in the compact sports utility vehicle (SÚV) §egmènt. Macan makes a striking impression from the very beginning: dramatic acceleration and braking figures, impressive engine power, extreme agility, and optimum §teering precision. What's more, all of these features are combined wîth a high level of comfort and everyday drivability.
The Macan features a 252 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to Porsche's famous PDK transmission and all-wheel- drive system, Porsche Traction Management. The Macan S, wîth its 340 horsepower 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 engine can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The Macan GTS increases power to 360 horsepower, and fits the performance oriented Porsche Active Suspension Management and air suspension as standard equipment. The Macan Turbo is equipped wîth a slightly larger 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 engine and offers increased power (400 hp) and a faster zero to 60 mph time (4.6 seconds). The top model is the Macan Turbo wîth Performance Package, which reaches 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds thanks to its 440 hp 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 powerplant.
All five models offer best-in- class performance, LED taillights in a 3D design, electromechanical §teering, a new multi-function §teering wheel, and available air-suspension (standard on GTS and Turbo wîth Performance Package).Macan Turbo wîth Performance Package tops the model lineMore power, bigger brakes, and sportier suspension calibration
