The Porsche Macan. Now Starting at $47,500
The 2017 Porsche Macan
To date, the Porsche Macan has been available in 3 trim levels –the “S”, “Turbo”, and “GTS” models, but arriving at Porsche of Ann Arbor right now is the entry-level Porsche Macan. The 252 horsepower Macan starts at $47,500, making it the least expensive new Porsche you can buy in the U.S. Unlike the three trim levels available last year, for 2017 Porsche adds a 4-cylinder turbo version of the Macan at the entry point.
Based on a familiar Volkswagen Group 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine, Porsche specific tuning boosts the power output to 252 horsepower and then mates it to a seven-speed PDK gearbox that is uniquely Porsche. Power is delivered to a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system, and an air suspension system and PASM adaptive dampers are available as options.
The new 2.0L Macan accelerates from 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, and top speed is 142 mph. Thanks to the fact that it uses two less pistons than the other Macan models, the four-cylinder model weighs just 3902 pounds and gets 20 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
Just because this is the entry point for the Macan – don’t think that it isn’t equipped like a Porsche. As mentioned above, the standard transmission is Porsche’s 7-speed PDK transmission. The same lightening-quick dual-clutch automatic that you’ll find in the 6-cylinder versions. It is equipped with 18” alloy wheels with a Tire pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Keeping you safe is Porsche Traction Management (PTM) and not only driver and passenger front airbags, but Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP) consisting of front-seat mounted side airbags and a side curtain airbags that run from the A-Pillar to the C-Pillar protecting both front and rear seat passengers.
