03 Sep 2019 | International News : Germany


A new Macan Turbo has taken the top spot in the Porsche compact SUV model range with a 2.9-litre, six-cylinder biturbo engine that has been extensively reworked to offer 434bhp, or 10% more than its predecessor with 20% less displacement. A peak torque of 550Nm is delivered between 1,800 and 5,600rpm.

The Macan Turbo stands out with its roof spoiler and 20-inch wheels
Power is transmitted through Porsche's seven-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox and Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. With the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new engine can get the car from a standing start to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than before, while the new car's top speed is 270km/h.

Deceleration has also been improved - the new Macan Turbo now comes with the powerful Porsche Surface Coated Brake fitted as part of the optimised chassis. The innovative, high-performance brakes are exclusive to Porsche and, with a tungsten carbide coating on the discs, offer a faster response, less wear and up to 90% less brake dust compared to conventional cast iron brakes.

18-way adjustable sports seats and a 14-speaker BOSE Surround Sound system enhances the Macan Turbo's interior
Optional height-adjustable air suspension with optimised rolling pistons and new shock absorber hydraulics, together with Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake, are available for a further increase in dynamics.

Externally, the new top model also sets itself apart with unique accents such as the front apron and the fixed roof spoiler with its double-wing design.

LED head lights are now standard with the Porsche Dynamic Light System, while from the side, the Macan Turbo sets itself apart with 20-inch Macan Turbo wheels, Sport Design side skirts and Sport Design exterior mirrors in body colour

Drivers and passengers alike will also benefit from the Macan's enhanced interior, which includes adaptive 18-way sports seats and a 14-speaker 665W BOSE Surround Sound system. In addition, Porsche Entry & Drive, ParkAssist (front and rear) as well as automatically dimming outside and inside rear view mirrors come as standard equipment for the Macan Turbo.
