Porsche’s compact SUV Macan Turbo now comes with a Performance Package

Mumbai: Since its debut, the Macan has been hailed for its sports car like driving dynamics in the compact SUV segment. Porsche has now equipped it with the Performance Package, giving the Macan Turbo enhanced driving properties, increased agility and an even greater emotional appeal.

The performance enhancement means the twin-turbo 3.6L V6 engine now delivers 440hp, which is 40hp more than the Macan Turbo; placing the variant on top of the model line. The compact SUV can now accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds (improvement of 0.4 seconds) and achieve a top speed of 272 km/h (increase of 6 km/h). The maximum torque goes up to 600Nm (increase of 50Nm) and is available across a broad rev range of 1,500-4,500 rpm.

Depending on the tyres, fuel consumption (in line with the NEDC) for the new top-of-the-range Macan model is between 9.4 to 9.7 l/100 km.

This Macan Turbo variant has a newly developed brake system, lowered body, controlled sports chassis, Sport Chrono Package and sports exhaust system as standard. The front axle features grooved brake discs gripped by six-piston brake callipers completed with a red paint finish. Available at the push of a button, the optimally tuned Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) delivers an exceptionally sporty position on the road with the vehicle lowered by 15mm. Air suspension with self-levelling function and height adjustment, lowered by 10mm, is also available as standard.

With the Sport Chrono Package, drivers can ramp up the performance of the Macan Turbo further. In Sport Plus mode, this package ensures the chassis, engine and transmission are tuned to sporty effect, accompanied by enhanced exhaust acoustics. The seven-speed PDK double-clutch transmission is now designed to deliver extremely short response times, optimum switching points and increased torque during gear changes for maximum acceleration.

To customise the Macan Turbo with Performance Package, a range of tailored equipment options are available, such as the Turbo Exterior Package. Features available with this package include 21″ wheels in the 911 Turbo design with lateral spokes painted in high-gloss black, LED main headlights equipped with PDLS Plus and numerous other elements finished in black. The Turbo Interior Package offers black leather interior with Alcantara elements, colour appliqué in many areas and carbon elements such as the door entry guards with the model logo lit up in white.

The Macan Turbo with Performance Package is available on order and the new top model costs INR 140.58 lacs (ex showroom Maharashtra) in India.
