Diesel-powered Porsche Macan confirmed for the United States

Article by Christian A., on October 13, 2014

Porsche already offers a diesel engine for the Macan crossover in Europe but it appears that the German manufacturer will offer the engine also in the United States. What’s more interesting is that the diesel engine will arrive within 1 year. According to Automotive News who spoke with Andrew Oosthuizen a.k.a. vice president of marketing for Porsche Cars North America, the company is busy with the development and engineering.

Set to arrive with a price tag below $60,000, the diesel-powered Macan will be slotted between the Macan S, which costs $50,895 and the Macan Turbo, which costs $73,295.

In Europe, the Macan S Diesel carries a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine that produces 254 hp (190 kW) and offers a fuel consumption of 6.1 l/100 km (38.56 US mpg), which corresponds to a CO2 value between 164 and 159 g/km.

Moreover, the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds, while top speed is 230 km/h or 142.9 mpg.

Still, if you want a high performance crossover, we recommend the Macan Turbo, as this model is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 biturbo petrol engine that generates 394 hp (294 kW).

When equipped with the Sport Chrono package, the Macan Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds (4.8 seconds in standard form), while top speed if 266 km/h or 165.2 mph.
