There is nothing new in a dynamic Roadster. There are a lot of them on the market. However, Porsche takes this term very seriously. And that’s how it differs from other manufacturers.
According to Porsche, the Macan is the most agile and precise in driving SUVs. We have to take the first tests on their word. The silhouette of the model clearly indicates that she has athletic genes. For example, the shape of the headlights was borrowed from the 918 Spyder. The closest to a small SUV is the Cayenne. From afar, you can even confuse these models. The Macan, however, is smaller: its length is 468.1 cm (the Turbo version is 1.8 cm larger), the width is 192.3 cm, and the height is 162.4 cm. The wheelbase is 280.7 cm. In short, the Macan is wide and fairly low.
The sporty image also gives it different tires at the front and back – as standard with a width of 235 at the front and 255 at the back, but optionally even with sizes 265 (front) and 295 (rear) with 21-inch wheels. Also in the interior, you can see the sporty spirit of Porsche. Take a borrowed steering wheel – and how – from a 918 Spyder. It has buttons for controlling the onboard computer, followed by paddles for shifting gears. The gear selector is located on the console between the seats, high up like a race car. The front seats have profiled sidewalls for fast driving.
Engine Porsche Macan
The dynamics are highlighted by the powerful engines offered on the day of sale, only with a supercharged V6. the Macana S has a 3-liter engine with a capacity of 340 HP. It allows you to accelerate to hundreds in 5.2 seconds (with the Sport Chrono package) and reach speeds of up to 254 km / h. Macan Turbo, in turn, has a capacity of 400 HP, created by a 3.6-liter engine, which is a modification of the 3-liter unit (the piston stroke is increased to 83 mm). Performance: 0-100 km / h in 4.6 s and a maximum of 266 km / h.the 258 HP turbo Diesel is slower. Macan S Diesel reaches hundreds in 6.1 seconds, and acceleration ends up at 230 km / h. All versions come with a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK.
All-wheel drive with constant torque transmission to the rear axle and an electronically controlled multi-disc clutch that also transmits power forward is also standard. In a situation where the back is sliding (for example, on ice), it can momentarily rise to 100%. torque, but without decoupling the rear axle. The electronics also provide good traction. using the brakes, preventing the wheels from spinning. The Macana does not have a transmission, but it has a button to enable off-road mode up to 80 km / h. it Includes changing the reaction to gas, the operation of the box, and the multi-disc clutch. With air suspension (optional), you can also increase the ground clearance from 4 cm to 23 cm. In addition, there is a sports button that sharpens the reaction to gas and delays the inclusion of subsequent gears. In the optional Sport Chrono package, we get the Sport Plus button, the cab stopwatch, the start sequence, and additional information in the multimedia system. In addition to other gas and transmission maps, the mode also subtracts 0.2 seconds from a sprint of a hundred.
