As part of plans to extend its compact SUV lineup, Porsche is releasing the entry-level model of the new Porsche Macan. It comes with a specifically tailored four-cylinder turbo engine. Moreover, the Porsche Cayenne will also have the latest Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
The Porsche Macan's turbocharged 2-liter engine offers 252 hp or 185 kW from 5.000 to 6.800 rpm. Like all Macan models, it comes with a standard seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. As a result, the vehicle accelerates to 100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds.
With the optional Sport Chrono-Package, it can even be reduced down to just 6.5 seconds. The Porsche Macan boasts a top speed of 229 km/h.
Furthermore, it offers outstanding fuel efficiency. According to the NEDC, the new vehicle consumes about 7.2 liters to 7.4 liters per 100 km depending on the mounted wheel and tire combination.
The entry-level Porsche Macan is now available in Germany starting at €55,669 inclusive of market-specific equipment and VAT. It is expected to have its market launch in June 2016.
