The new Macan - built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present. New challenges are a permanent driving force. Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it. Direct and intimate. A Sports Car that gives us what we're looking for: that feeling of being alive. The new Macan. Life, intensified.
The tremendous dynamic performance of the new Macan is thanks in part to the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive system. It comprises an electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, the automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). The electronically controlled multiplate clutch regulates the distribution of drive force between the rear axle and the front axle. Driving conditions are constantly monitored to enable a precise and lightning-quick response to a variety of situations.
As a creator of sports cars, we know that driver and car must form a single entity. As such, you do not simply sit in the Macan – the ergonomic architecture integrates you into the vehicle. The threedimensional arrangement of the controls lends the interior a cockpit-style layout. In typical Macan fashion, the sporty front seats convey a sense of height above the road without any loss of intimacy with it.
The optional sport exhaust system delivers an even more resonant sound. The chromium-plated sport tailpipes – available in a choice of silver color or black – are a treat for both the eyes and the ears.
Optional for Macan Turbo and Macan S.
To improve fuel economy, the Auto Start Stop function switches off the engine when you are coming to a stop at traffic lights, for example.
Standard in all Macan models.
The coasting function enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows. The engine is decoupled from the transmission, which avoids the deceleration caused by engine braking. In this way, the vehicle makes optimum use of its own momentum and is able to coast for longer distances. This has real benefits for fuel consumption without any impact on comfort or sporty performance.
Standard in all Macan models.
Engine cooling is prevented during the initial stages of a cold start so that the engine reaches its optimum operating temperature faster. This means it can begin working at high efficiency sooner, thereby consuming less fuel.
The radiator grille shutter opens the cooling air flaps only as needed. Whenever the cooling requirement is low, such as on relaxed drives, the radiator grille shutter closes. Aerodynamics are improved, which helps to improve fuel economy. If, for example, a sporty driving style is adopted and the demand for power increases, the cooling air flaps will open and let in the necessary amount of cooling air for increased driving performance.
To enhance efficiency, the electrical system in the Macan models is recharged on demand during engine overrun phases. Fuel consumption is thereby reduced, while the full power output of the engine is made available for acceleration phases. You won't notice anything of the process itself, except for the results: optimum power and torque with lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Would you prefer to experience the gear change or the driving pleasure? No contest. The new Macan is equipped with the 7-speed PDK transmission, which changes gear in fractions of a second with no interruption in the flow of power. The advantage is that, whenever a particular gear is engaged, the next gear is already preselected. As the clutch of the engaged gear opens, the clutch of the target gear closes simultaneously. The effect is a sporty, dynamic and agile driving feel.
High performance, on the other hand, is something that the new Macan S would never do without. Its 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine generates 340 hp and helps it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in only 5.2 seconds. Top speed is 156 mph. Figures to raise the hairs on the neck of any sports car enthusiast.
The Macan S is equipped with 19-inch Macan Design wheels. Its brake calipers are silver-colored. This high-performance athlete is also recognizable by the ‘Macan S’ logo on the rear hatch – and on the door sill guards in aluminum.
