Porsche has announced the all-new Macan, a model that sees the German sports car manufacturer expand its range in to a whole new vehicle segment.
As the first Porsche in the compact SUV segment, Porsche says the Macan will set new standards in terms of dynamic performance, on both paved streets and uneven terrain.
The Macan will be available in three versions from launch. They will include Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive and the Porsche PDK double-clutch transmission fitted as standard. The vehicles are to be powered by six-cylinder engines, achieving favourable fuel consumption figures.
The Macan S is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo engine that delivers 340 hp (250 kW), accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 5.2 seconds and returns up to 32.5 mpg (NEDC). The 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine in the Macan Turbo produces 400 hp (294 kW) and accelerates the vehicle to 62 mph in 4.8 seconds, with an average fuel consumption of up to 31.7 mpg (NEDC). With a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine and 258 hp (190 kW), the Macan S Diesel is the long-distance sports car. The engine accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 6.3 seconds and returns an average of 46.3 mpg (NEDC).
