Porsche unveiled its overhauled flagship SUV, Macan at the Paris Motor Show this year. The Italian auto premiere might have managed to reach out to all the aspects of the car, giving it a new element everywhere.
The new Macan comes with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine mated to a seven-speed PDK dual clutch gearbox. The company claims that the combustion chamber geometry of the engine has been improved this year along with a new gasoline particulate filter.
The freshly worked engine puts out 252bhp of power and 370Nm of torque making the car capable to lunge from 0 to 100 kph in 6.7seconds with a top speed of 225kmph.
Porsche has based the new Macan on an overhauled chassis that it claims will increase ride comfortability. Apart from that, the SUV now comes with a set of mixed-sized tyres from 18-inches to 21-inches to enhance the control and supplement the Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
The new Macan gets a three-dimensional LED light panel on the rear as standard while the optional Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) can be used to control light distribution. Porsche has worked on the new Macan’s body-kit with a wider front-end along with new colour schemes including Mamba Green Metallic, Dolomite Silver Metallic, Miami Blue and Crayon.
The SUV now comes with a plethora of digital tech including the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system. Compared to the 7.2-inch full HD touchscreen in the outgoing model, the new Macan gets a bigger 10.9-inch screen and is enabled with navigation, mobile phone preparation, two audio interfaces and intelligent voice control.
