The New Macan at Porsche Downtown LA

The 2018 Macan.


Those who prefer to blaze a trail of their own don’t need to follow the lead of others. That´s how we feel about vehicles which are known as compact SUVs: five doors, five seats, all-wheel drive – and, of course, a higher sitting position. But aren’t they lacking a certain something? Something that adds a little life, lets us enjoy a more intimate relationship with the road and delivers intense driving pleasure. A concept that boasts plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intensive, but still powerful. Practical, but never ordinary.It is by these standards that we created the Macan, and saw it emerge with six distinct guises. Each one a sports car. Each one unmistakable in its own segment. Each one a genuine Porsche – from design and driving dynamics to equipment specification. From our dynamic entry-level model to the ultra sporty S variant and the uprated GTS model or the Turbo, which sets performance standards in its vehicle class.

Performance and handling.

It is no longer just about mobility. We do not simply drive in order to travel from A to B.Would you prefer to experience the gear change or the driving pleasure? No contest. The Macan is equipped with the 7-speed PDK transmission, which changes gear in fractions of a second with no interruption in the flow of power. The advantage is that, whenever a particular gear is engaged, the next gear is already preselected. As the clutch of the engaged gear opens, the clutch of the target gear closes simultaneously. The effect is a sporty, dynamic and agile driving feel.The principle of PDK is that, whenever a particular gear is engaged, the next gear is already preselected. As a result, gear changes take place within milliseconds.Automatic mode is optimised for fuel economy. This means that PDK is able to offer not only a sporty, agile driving feel, but also increasedefficiency.Would you rather change gear manually? You can do this using the two gearshift paddles on the multifunction sports steering wheel, fitted as standard, or using the PDK gear selector.In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the shift times of PDK become even shorter, the gear changes even sportier. Additional gearshift strategies are also available – for uncompromising driving pleasure.
