The Porsche Macan S is now equipped with a newly developed 3.0 litre V6 turbo engine. Using the central turbo layout, the turbocharger is located in the inner V, resulting in short exhaust gas paths between the combustion chambers and the turbocharger to ensure outstanding and immediate responsiveness. The new twin-scroll turbocharger provides high torque at low engine speeds. With twin-scroll technology, the exhaust gas flows are continuously fed to the turbine wheel as separate streams significantly reducing any charge cycle disadvantages. The further-developed combustion chamber geometry with a central injector promotes efficient fuel mixture preparation. In addition to the increase in the power output per litre, from 113 to 118 hp, emissions have also been reduced.
Porsche has expanded its range of compact SUVs with the addition of the powerful Macan S. The new model from the sports car manufacturer features a new three-litre V6 turbocharged petrol engine with a gasoline particulate filter. It delivers 354 hp (260 kW) and has a maximum torque of 480 Nm, representing an increase of 14 hp (10 kW) and 20 Nm compared with the previous model. When equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the new Macan S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds quicker than its predecessor. The vehicle’s top speed is 254 km/h, whilst the fuel consumption (NEDC-correlated) is 8.9 l/100 km. The new Macan S offers all the product innovations of the latest generation Macan model range, including an LED light bar at the rear and the new Porsche Communication Management system with a 10.9-inch touchscreen.
