Porsche Macan – OverviewOfficially codenamed Type 95B, the current Porsche Macan is still in its first generation. Its underpinnings are the same as the first-gen Audi Q5 (which is now in its second-generation), which means that the platform is a little dated. An all-new Macan is reported to be coming soon in 2022, which will adopt the nomenclature of the Taycan.
As a final hurrah for the current widely popular Macan, it has been given a facelift in 2019. The updates are a welcome refresh – a light strip joining the tail-lights like on the Panamera and 911, an adjusted running gear for efficiency, and every variant received a slight revision too.
The new base model Macan is slightly down in power with the EA888 engine, from 255 PS to 252 PS, while 370 Nm of twist remains unchanged, but the engine is more efficient.
The updated Macan S now gets a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 with 354 PS and 480 Nm of torque, as opposed to the old one with a 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 with 344 PS and 460 Nm.
The facelifted GTS now has a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 that makes 380 PS and 520 Nm of torque. The previous version had 364 PS and 460 Nm from a 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6. The new GTS is also 15 mm lower than any other variant.
The engine of the S makes 440 PS and 550 Nm of torque in the facelifted range-topping Turbo. The previous one had a 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 with 400 PS and 550 Nm (446 PS and 600 Nm with the optional Performance Pack).
