Porsche Macan Full Specs Leaked by Chinese media!

The spec sheet which appears to be in Chinese reveals the full details of the eagerly anticipated Porsche Macan SUV, which will sit underneath the Cayenne in the model range.

Quote:
There are three engine choices for the Macan, just like we expected. There's the Macan S with a turbo 3-liter V6 rated at 340 PS and 460 Nm of torque, the Macan S Diesel with a 3-liter diesel rated at 258 PS and 580 Nm of torque and finally the Macan Turbo equipped with a 3.6-liter turbo V6 rated at 400 PS and 550 Nm of torque. All come with the same automated seven-speed PDK gearbox.

The basic Macan S takes 5.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h and has a top speed of 254 km/h. The S Diesel is the slowest with 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 226 km/h. Both these cars have 18-inch wheels as standard that can be increased to 19s optionally

The more powerful Turbo model takes just 4.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h and a top speed of 269 km/h. That's frankly quite impressive when you consider the weight of this model is 1,947 kg.

The new Porsche Macan is so much more than an Audi Q5 with a different body on. Porsche releases a clip of a test prototype testing at Weissach-Germany.




Cheers!

The Porsche Macan shows a new trend of premium car makers attempting to address the not so premium customers who would buy a Evoque or X3 instead. The key question is if Porsche will get hit by lower profit margins due to higher volumes considering that it has the highest profit margins in the industry today; 18% return on sales.

Clearly though, car makers around the world are looking at the SUV/Compact crossover segment as key to growth. With Bentley planning an SUV and Jaguar talks of the CX-17 crossover, there seems to be a lot of activity currently.

At the cost of self publicizing please see a link where I had an interview on Bloomberg regarding the premium SUV market.

Great looking SUV and the interiors are fantastic. And the driving videos show competent handling as well.

The only head-scratcher is the base price at USD $50k. It's actually more expensive by $1000 than the base Cayenne S! And with Porsche, you need to add on another $5k to $10k in options to get expected standard equipment as benchmarked in other brands.

I really can't figure out how a smaller model in the lineup is more expensive!

Too many buttons on the gear console, it will be difficult in India.

Driver going vroom vroom in his Macan and can't find the button to switch off say the Eco Mode, so he is looking and looking and looking and suddenly BAM!!!

Good looking car though, I have driven the Q7 a few times but never really got a chance to be in a Cayene, how are Porsche SUV's compared to their donor Audi's, any one with hands on time care to share his experience.

Without the bumper+Grill, its hard to distinguish from the cayenne. I would rather choose the JGC SRT8 with loads of fun over these.

Exactly my point. Also, it is not only about the cost. The specs of base model Macan outright dominate Cayenne base model. It is down to these three things. Take note that i am comparing only the base models.

1.Cost : Macan > Cayenne by a meager 300$, equivalent(or less than?) to one day's Disney land tour cost.

2. Specs :
a) Top speed : 156 of Macan > 142 of Cayenne.
b) 0-60mph : 5.2 of Macan < 7.1 of Cayenne.
c) Power output : 340 hp of Macan > 300 hp of Cayenne.
d) Transmission : Dual Clutch vs 6 speed Manual of Cayenne.
e) Drive Train : Standard 4WD of Macan > FWD of Cayenne.

3. Fuel Consumption : 32.5 mpg(Est) of Macan vs 23 mpg of Cayenne.

My Verdict : Base Macan kicks Base Cayenne in the satchels if you like to forgo your one day fun at Disney land.
P.S : I did not cover the comparison of safety aspects like Airbags as by the time i wrote this, the Macan website of USA is not up and running completely.

Till this date, the car i thought i will buy after my graduation is Cayenne. Now it is Macan, since all i can afford is only the base model if ever i could afford one.

Base Porsche Macan Coming in 2014 with Four-Cylinder Engine.

Quote:
Since the Macan is a volume car, a volume engine should be used. As such, the 2.0 TFSI from Audi is the only choice.
The 2.0-liter R4 from the EA888 has DOHC, water-cooled turbocharger incorporated in exhaust manifold, sandwiched central front-mounted intercooler and direct injection. In the Audi S3 and Golf GTI, it produces 300 PS and 360 Nm of torque, but could be detuned for more everyday usability.
