Engine Options

The new Porsche Macan offers various engines for you to choose the level of power and efficiency that meets you driving desires.

  • 2.5L 4-cylinder Engine: The most efficient of the lineup, this engine is standard on the Macan. Developing up to 252-hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, this model reaches up to 142 mph. You’ll move up to 60 mpg in as little as 6.3 seconds.
  • 3.0L V6 engine: On the Macan S, this engine develops up to 340-hp and 339 lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll reach up to 156 mph and get up to 60mph in as little as 5.2 seconds. On the GTS model, this engine develops up to 360-hp and 369 lb.-ft. of torque. It reaches up to 159 mph and gets from 0-60mph in as little as 5.0 seconds.
  • 3.6L V6 engine: This engine reaches an impressive 400-hp and 406 lb.-ft. of torque. With a top track speed of 164 mph, you’ll be able to get from 0-60 mph in as little as 4.6 seconds.

PDK Transmission

All models of the Macan pair their engines with the Porsche Doppelkupplung, or PDK, transmission. With imperceptible gear shifting, the PDK works to move to the next gear in milliseconds by choosing the gear that is coming next before it needs to switch. Two gearshift paddles are located next to the steering wheel to make use of more manual changes when needed. The available Sport Chrono Package will allow you to change gears even faster for a more agile experience.

Porsche Active Suspension Management

Unique to the Porsche lineup, this suspension system is an electronic damping control system. By constantly monitoring the road conditions as well as your driving input, damping force is adjusted accordingly to offer a responsive driving experience. The sport suspension standard on all Macan models enhances the driving experience by bringing the Macan lower to the road for a racier experience.

Porsche Traction Management

Every Macan is equipped with the Porsche Traction Management system. With all-wheel drive standard across the board, you can traverse a variety of terrain easily. With electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential, and anti-slip regulation, the Macan consistently monitors both road and driving conditions to deliver power where and when it is needed so that you always maintain control of the vehicle with the most traction possible. Even though it’s a crossover, you’ll still be able to enjoy the sporty dynamics of a sports car.

Driving Modes

There are both Sport and Turbo modes available to choose on the Macan. When you choose the Turbo 2.0 button next to the gear shift on the Turbo model, you initiate both turbochargers that the engine is built with to maximize the performance capabilities of this upgraded model. The SPORT button is standard on the Macan, and you can press this button to begin a more dynamic drive. By switching engine mapping from the electronic engine management system, you’ll have more responsive handling and direct driving effects to up the ante on the road.

Auto Start Stop Function

Just because the Macan has a lot of performance power doesn’t mean that efficiency wasn’t thought out in the design. With the engine’s auto start stop function, the engine will shut off when you’re stopped at red lights and seamlessly start again when you remove your foot from the brake pedal. This feature helps boost your fuel economy which is especially helpful when you do a lot of city driving.
