Inside the cabin, Porsche has introduced more futuristic controls for the centre console. Instead of the tactile buttons, it now gets touch sensors with a smaller gear level as standard.

A 10.9-inch FHD touchscreen infotainment system is still there above which sits an analogue clock. Interestingly, a sportier steering wheel with an ample amount of feel and feedback makes the new Macan a typical performance SUV in today’s world.

Engine & Performance

Starting with the standard Macan, it comes with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor good for 265HP. Earlier, the overall output from the same used to be somewhere around 245HP.

The mid S variant will now feature a 2.9-litre V6 motor that churns out a massive 380HP with agility onboard. As mentioned above, there’s no Turbo variant available this time. Therefore, the GTS variant which was revealed a few days before will now act as a top-end variant. What’s exciting about this variant is that it now produces 440HP alongside a peak torque of 549Nm. As a result, the Macan GTS is now the fastest and to be precise, it can now do a 0-100kmph sprint in just 4.3 seconds. The top speed from the same is rated at 272kmph.

Alternatives

When launched in India, the new Porsche Macan will rival some well-established SUVs such as Audi Q5, BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC among others. Want to learn more about the new GLC? Take a look at it down below.
