2017 Porsche Macan Blue

A comprehensive selection of 2017 Porsche Macan models allows driving enthusiasts to find their own ideal blend of power and luxury. Of course, deciding on the right model can be tricky, but you can break your options down into the base Porsche Macan, Macan GTS, or Macan Turbo, and we’ve written a quick and easy overview of what each one brings to the table.

2017 Macan Base

The base Porsche Macan is immediately impressive thanks to its 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which produces up to 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. You can also upgrade to the S for 340 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque from a 3.0L V6 turbo engine. It’s capable of jumping from zero to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds.

Even the base model is extremely generous when it comes to features. Everything you’d expect from a top-tier model is standard, including front and rear parking sensors, Lane Departure Warning, power liftgate, tri-zone climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay.

2017 Macan GTS

Upgrading to the Porsche Macan GTS puts you in command of the same engine as the Porsche Macan S, but several tweaks allow for up to 360 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, and you’ll jump from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 4.8 seconds with optional Launch Control.

The Porsche Macan GTS also features exterior upgrades in the form of 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels in Black Satin, adaptive headlights, and sport exhaust. Inside, you’ll find heated sport seats. This model also features Air Suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).

2017 Macan Turbo

The 2017 Porsche Macan Turbo lives up to its name and then some, packing a 3.6L turbocharged V6 beneath the hood to deliver up to 400 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, enough to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. As noted by Edmunds.com, “nothing in the segment comes remotely close.”

And that isn’t even peak performance. Add the available Performance package to your Porsche Macan Turbo for 440 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque to push you from a standstill to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. Even a trip from Frankfort to Crown Point will feel like a racetrack.
