Porsche Macan S launches with new V6 turbo engine

Great Britain. Porsche has expanded its range of compact SUVs with the addition of the powerful Macan S. The new model from the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer features a 3.0-litre V6 turbocharged petrol engine with enhanced combustion chamber geometry and a gasoline particulate filter.

The six-cylinder engine produces 354 PS (260 kW) and has a maximum torque of 480 Nm, representing an increase of 14 PS (10 kW) and 20 Nm compared with the previous model.

The powerful V6 engine asserts the reputation of the Macan as the sports car of the compact SUV segment and, in addition to revisions to its engine and chassis, the latest model also introduces a refreshed style to the overall exterior design, greater interior comfort and increased connectivity.

When equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new Macan S accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds quicker than the previous model. The top speed is 156 mph. Its fuel consumption (NEDC-correlated) is 31.7 mpg (8.9 l/100 km).

The new Macan S naturally shares all the product innovations of the latest generation model. These include the distinctive LED light-bar across the rear and the new, fully networked Porsche Communication Management system with a 10.9-inch touchscreen.

New V6 engine with central turbo layout
The Porsche Macan S is now equipped with a newly-developed 3.0-litre V6 turbo engine. Using the central turbo layout, the single turbocharger is located in the inner vee between the cylinder banks; this results in short exhaust gas paths between the combustion chambers and the turbocharger, to ensure more immediate responsiveness. The new twin-scroll turbocharger provides high torque at low engine speeds. With twin-scroll technology, the exhaust gas flows are continuously fed to the turbine wheel as separate streams significantly reducing any charge cycle disadvantages. The further-developed combustion chamber geometry with a central injector promotes efficient fuel mixture preparation. In addition to the increase in the power output per litre, from 113 to 118 PS, the emissions have also been reduced.

Newly tuned chassis for enhanced balance
Typical for a Porsche, the driving dynamics of the Macan remain the primary focus and the revised chassis intend to further optimise the responsiveness and comfort levels. As is typical for a sports car, it comes with mixed-size tyres front:rear, enabling the driver to take full advantage of the handling benefits of the intelligent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system which in turn has also been further revised.

On the front axle, suspension spring forks made from aluminium replace the previous steel components. The new light alloy design is more rigid and reduces unsprung mass, making the steering on the Macan more precise and improving ride comfort. New tuning for the anti-roll bars also ensure more neutral handling. As before, the Porsche Active Stability Management (PASM) active damper control system, height-adjustable air suspension with optimised rolling pistons and new shock absorber hydraulics and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) are available as options to improve driving dynamics and handling even further.

Enhanced brakes with more precise pressure point
A lot of detail work has also gone into the brakes of the new Macan, and the driver will notice this most of all in the form of a changed pedal feel. The pedal in question weighs around 300 g less than the previous steel part, and acts on the brake master cylinder via a shortened lever arm. This results in a more immediate brake response, and the driver can also feel a very precise pressure point because of the firm connection. The even more sporting focus in the new Macan S is reflected in the larger front brake discs, with disc diameter increased by 10 mm to 360 mm, and disc thickness growing 2 mm to 36 mm. All new brake pads are copper-free. The Macan S can also be equipped with the optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).

A more streamlined design with full LED lights and new digital functions
The Macan S is distinguished by its distinctive exterior styling, including the three-dimensional rear LED light bar. The headlights are also LED as standard, and the optional Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) system can be used to control headlight distribution adaptively.

The new Porsche Communication Management (PCM), which now features a 10.9-inch full-HD touchscreen, is fully networked as standard and includes online navigation with real-time traffic information through “Here Cloud”, mobile phone connection, two audio interfaces and intelligent voice control. Other features on-board as standard include Porsche Connect Plus (with LTE phone module and SIM card reader), a Wi-Fi hotspot and an array of new Porsche Connect services.

New options: GT sports steering wheel, ioniser and Traffic Jam Assist
The optional GT sports steering wheel, which appears in the 911, adds further sporting ambience to the interior design of the Macan S. The mode switch integrated into the steering wheel – including the Sport Response button – is part of the optional Sport Chrono Package. For added comfort and convenience, it is possible to choose the new Traffic Jam Assist option, a heated windscreen and an ioniser which, in conjunction with the fine particulate air filter fitted as standard, improves the quality of the air inside the vehicle.

The new Macan S is available to order now from Porsche Centres in the UK and Ireland, priced from £48,750.00 RRP. It joins the 245 PS 2.0-litre Macan in the range, which went on sale in October priced from £46,344.00 RRP. Customers will also be invited to explore the potential of their new car, and further develop their own skills behind the wheel, by participating in a bespoke driving experience around the unique tracks at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.

A model of success: more than 350,000 Macan delivered since 2014
The Macan is a genuine success story. The combination of typical Porsche performance on any terrain coupled with a high degree of everyday practicality impressed customers right from the start. Since 2014, Porsche has delivered more than 350,000 around the world.
