Entry-level Porsche Macan with 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine unveiled

Article by Christian A., on April 23, 2014

An entry-level version of the Porsche Macan powered by a four-cylinder engine was already confirmed by Joe Lawrence a.k.a. COO of Porsche Cars North America, as he admitted that there is room for additional variants down the line. Today, the first images and specs of the new car were released on the Web and as expected, the Macan is now powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 237 hp (177 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.

Bolted to a PDK automatic transmission, the Porsche Macan powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.9 seconds, while fuel consumption is 7.5 litres/100 km or 31.3 mpg. If the Macan S and Turbo versions come with quad tail pipes, the new entry-level Macan is offered with only two tail pipes and comes as standard with 18-inch alloy wheels.

As an option, Porsche offers the panoramic roof, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as well as front and rear Park Assist. If you consider this version doesn’t get too much power, you can go for the Macan S, that comes with a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo petrol engine that delivers 335 hp (250 kW) and pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds (5.2 when equipped with Sport Chrono package), while top speed is electronically limited at 254 km/h (157.8 mph).

The Turbo is the fastest version of the Macan as it comes with a bigger 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine that generates 394 hp (294 kW). Macan Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds (4.6 seconds with Sport Chrono package) and has a top speed of 266 km/h (165.2 mph).

If you are looking for a fuel-efficient version, the Macan S Diesel comes with a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine with 254 hp (190 kW) that can push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds, while top speed is limited at 230 km/h.

 In Germany the Macan S and Macan S Diesel costs EUR 57.930, including VAT. The top model Macan Turbo costs EUR 79.826 including VAT.
