New 2016 Porsche Macan Turbo at Len Stoler Porsche for Baltimore, MD

For 2016, tri-zone climate control is now standard on every Porsche Macan, and the Macan Turbo gets a heated steering wheel as standard. A surround-view (360-degree) camera is now available as well. The new Macan Turbo has spirited performance even in base trim; is athletic and engaging to drive; with a comfortable and quiet ride; and is highly customizable. The Macan is the first ever Porsche to be equipped with the multifunction sport steering wheel with 918 Spyder design. Its appearance is futuristic and its design highly ergonomic.

Under the Macan Turbo's Hood

The new Macan is equipped with the 7-speed PDK transmission, which changes gear in fractions of a second with no interruption in the flow of power. The V6 twin-turbo engines are equipped with two turbochargers arranged in parallel – one for each cylinder bank. Intake air is compressed and then fed to the engine via the respective intercooler. This cooling process achieves two things: high cylinder charge and low component temperatures. The SPORT button, which is fitted as standard, enables you to select a setup that favors either comfort or sporty performance. At the push of a button, the electronic engine management system switches the engine mapping to offer an even sharper response and engine dynamics that are more direct. The Macan features a 252 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to Porsche’s famous PDK transmission and all-wheel-drive system, Porsche Traction Management. The Macan S, with its 340 horsepower 3.0 liter twin-turbo V6 engine can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The Macan GTS increases power to 360 horsepower, and fits the performance oriented Porsche Active Suspension Management and air suspension as standard equipment. The Macan Turbo is equipped with a slightly larger 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 engine and offers increased power (400 hp) and a faster zero to 60 mph time (4.6 seconds).

Design of Porsche Macan Turbo

The instrument panel has a three-tube design. Three tubes – just like in a classic sports car. Also in view is the centrally positioned tachometer. To the right is the 4.8-inch color screen, which, among other things, displays information from the on-board computer. Thanks to the ascending center console – a typical feature of a sports car – you don't have very far to reach from the steering wheel to the PDK gear selector and most important vehicle functions. The ignition lock, as ever, is on the left – typically Porsche. Sound and navigation systems follow the ergonomics philosophy. Equipped with a high-resolution color touchscreen, they offer intuitive ease of use. The overlapping hood stretches through to the wheel arches. This lends the front a broad and powerful presence and reminds us of the legendary Porsche 917. Five doors. Five seats. Excellent everyday practicality – and an elevated sitting position. That's what you can expect of an SUV. Now let's consider what you can expect of a Porsche: sports car sensations.

Conclusions
