Porsche has prepared new vehicle that will be delivered to the compact SUV segment and the 2015 Porsche Macan will certainly set few standards in this market when it comes to comfort and drive dynamics which are on high level for Porsche vehicles.
You can expect to get great features from this vehicle on both asphalt and off road terrains. There were no compromises in the production of this vehicle and we are getting max performances, great acceleration in combination with fantastic brake and stopping power.
As with every Porsche, most important are the performances so we will start with engines. There will be two gasoline turbocharged engines and one turbocharged diesel unit. Base version will be offered with 3.0 liter V6 unit that uses biturbo technology to produce 340 hp. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h or 62 mph is done in about 5.4 seconds while the Sport Chrono package equipped models will do it in 5.2 seconds. Max speed is 245 km/h while the NEDC test suggest fuel consumption of less than 9 liters per 100 km which will be pretty hard to achieve in a real world drive conditions.
Specs Of Porsche Macan
Top of the range is the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo that comes with 3.6 liter V6 unit and 400 hp allowing this vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h or 62 mph in 4.8 seconds and in 4.6 seconds when equipped with Sport Chrono package. Max speed is 266 km/h and the fuel consumption is slightly over 9 liters per 100 km.
Those that want to lower fuel consumption can choose 3.0 liter V6 diesel that brings healthy 258 hp with quite optimistic fuel test figures of slightly over 6 liters per 100 km. Max speed is 230 km/h while the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h or 62 mph is done in 6.3 seconds but when Sport Chrono package is added it is done in 6.1 seconds.
We do know that 20 years ago it would be a sacrilege to talk about Porsche and diesel engines, also it would be insanity to say that Porsche would be offering SUV’s but times have changed and now we are getting great vehicles in these segments from German sports car company. There is no doubt that 2015 Porsche Macan comes with great tradition in mind delivering performances and quality we are used to get from this company.
Interior comes with all the latest technologies and new features making this vehicle very nice place to be. Many customization options are offered and every driver can choose the best setup for their needs. Through a 4.8 inch display driver will be able to control and monitor every aspect of the vehicle and all the most important systems in car.
