2016 Porsche Macan S review, price, release date


2016 Porsche Macan S review

2016 Porsche Macan S is the most unusual crossover in recent years

Many consider this model as an off-road version of the 911 model. So 2016 Porsche Macan offers increased ground clearance and large volume of luggage. In the basic configuration the car has 340 HP, which is achieved due to turbo-six engine. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is 6.4 seconds.

Typically, in this class of cars, manufacturers try not to equip cars with lots of “sport features”. But sitting behind the wheel, the Macan S will give even the most experienced driver in the true sense of sports drive. The AWD system behavior hints of a chance to participate in sports racing. But when testing the maneuverability, the experts noted that the car in this plan lacks the speed of response. So, dream a dream, but the car is certainly not suitable for performance in sports competitions.

2016 Porsche Macan S Interior

The interior of the SUV, of course, not like the “older brother” Porsche Cayenne, but, nevertheless, has elements of luxury. The interior of the car is very comfortable and supportive. If you ride alone or at mostly two, the car is very suitable for everyday trips. But if you want to carry comfortably in the car more than three or four people, it is better to buy a Cayenne.
