New Porsche Macan S Is Gorgeous Looking and Fast Going

By

A compact premium crossover from the legendary Porsche brand named Macan waited all over the world for several years, and its world premiere literally thundered in November 2013, and simultaneously at two international auto shows – in Los Angeles and Tokyo.

The car, built on the platform of Audi Q5, fully justifies its “predatory” name, with both design and technical component. In November 2015, the SUV experienced a small update, which bypassed the exterior, but added a new functionality and changed some of the settings.

Awesome Looking

Looks Porsche Macan S powerful and deliberately sporting, and its thoroughness can be traced in every detail. The swollen wide front end, crowned with huge air intakes and branded “droplets” of head optics, a squat wedge-shaped silhouette with swinging hips and a falling roofline, frying food with blades of “three-dimensional” taillights and a “four-barreled” exhaust system – even visually Macan is similar to Predator, preparing to jump.

The final contribution to the construction of a spectacular and dynamic appearance is made by beautiful wheels of 18-inch wheels, which optionally give way to rims measuring from 19 to 21 inches.

Classic Porsche Interior

Inside the Macan is the classic Porsche salon, dominated by heavy panels and straight lines. Behind the three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, borrowed from the superstar 918 Spyder, are branded “wells” (in the number of three) laconic instrument panel with the main tachometer and 4.8-inch color screen of the on-board computer on the right.

The central console, flaunting the 7-inch screen of the multimedia installation, goes into a wide floor tunnel, on which the scatter of buttons that handle various functions is concentrated.

The interior decoration materials fully correspond to the brand image – the crossover furniture is cut from expensive plastics, high-grade leather, Alcantara, and it is diluted with inserts made of aluminum or natural wood. The front seats of the S-version of the Makana have dense chairs with a pronounced profile and a large number of adjustments in various directions, and optionally they are changed to sports seats with even more developed support on the sides.

The rear sofa is clearly molded for two people, and the high transmission tunnel hints that the third passenger will be superfluous. The stock of space on the rear seats is sufficient, but not more than that. In the arsenal of the Porsche Macan S there is a properly shaped luggage compartment with a capacity of 17.6 cu ft. The back of the back sofa, cut in a ratio of 40/20/40, is laid in a flat surface, bringing the capacity to 52.9 cu ft.

V6 Power

Under the hood of the “S” is a longitudinally placed gasoline V-shaped “six” with a volume of 3.0 liters, equipped with two turbochargers, direct fuel injection, a system for adjusting the valve travels and valve phases, as well as the Start/Stop function. Maximum it generates 340 horsepower of power in the range of 5500 to 6500 rpm and 339 ft lb of torque, available at 1450-5000 rpm.

The engine is assisted by a 7-band robotic PDK with a dual-disk clutch and four-wheel drive with a plug-in transmission, where traction on the front wheels leaves through a multi-disk clutch with electronic control. Under normal driving conditions, up to 90% of the time is sent back, but in certain situations up to 100% of thrust is thrown to the front. Optionally, the car is fitted with a lockable rear differential.

Performance

Driving character Porsche Macan S fully justifies its “predatory” name. From the place to 60, the premium crossover “fires” in 5.4 seconds, and stops acceleration only when it reaches a mark of 157 MPH.

VW Platform

As a base for the Porsche Macan, the modular MLB/MLP platform, known for the Audi Q5, is used. In the body structure of the car, high-strength steels are widely used (they account for about 45%), and the hood and luggage compartment cover are made of aluminum, resulting in the curb weight of the Macan S is 4111 lbs.

In front on the SUV is installed two-link chassis, in rear – a multi-link construction. By default, the crossover “flaunts” the air suspension, which includes the system of adjusting the stiffness of PASM shock absorbers.
