The 2015 Porsche Macan is an all-new compact SUV – never been seen before on this planet and unprecedented for Porsche.
About Porsche Macan
More agile sports car than terrain-tackling SUV, the 2016 Macan SUV from Porsche is everything you'd expect from the storied car manufacturer, and a few things you might not expect. Derived from the Audi Q5 platform, Porsche's take on the SUV concept starts with a distinctive exterior, standard all-wheel drive (AWD) and a trio of ridiculously powerful twin-turbocharged V6 engine choices, including a 400-horsepower beast in the Turbo trim. A PDK 7-speed automatic transmission is the only transmission choice. Combining luxury, power and performance, the Macan is more a hyper-sports wagon than an off-road-ready SUV, making its primary competition the Audi SQ5, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and BMW X3, all of which cost considerably less than the pricey Macan.
