Porsche is expanding its range to include a whole new class of vehicle. The Macan is the first Porsche model to break into the compact SUV segment.

Porsche_Macan_1The sporty DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is also immediately recognizable in the design. Many of the design elements have been taken from other Porsche sports cars. The new Porsche SUV is unrivalled in its flat and broad profile on the road. The wraparound bonnet and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporty elegance and powerful dynamics.

Porsche_Macan_6The Macan is “Made in Germany”, produced at the Leipzig plant. Porsche has invested 500 million euro in the plant and has established an entire production line there. The line is set up to produce around 50,000 vehicles per year – all manufactured with the utmost precision and to the highest level of quality.

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.

Three models comprise the Macan product range at market launch. As the top model in the model line, the Macan Turbo is set to be the most powerful vehicle in the compact SUV segment. The 3.6-litre V6 biturbo engine achieves an unrivalled 400 bhp (294 kW) and catapults the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. The Macan S is equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine delivering 340 bhp (250 kW). The Macan S Diesel with its 258 bhp (190 kW) engine is the economical long-distance runner of the three Macan models.

Porsche_Macan_5The latest stage of evolution of the all-wheel drive – known as Porsche Traction Management (PTM) – has produced one of the world’s most powerful drive systems. This all-wheel drive is fitted on all Macan models.
