There are three configurations to choose from: Macan, Macan S, and Macan GTS.
These models are quite similar when it comes to standard specification. All models get LED exterior lights, a power tailgate, eight-way power-adjustable heated front seats, keyless entry with a push-button start, an analog clock, and a 10.9-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay, navigation, and a ten-speaker sound system. Safety-wise, each model comes with front and rear park assist, cruise control, lane departure warning, hill control, and auto-dimming side and rearview mirrors.
Most of the differences are either mechanical or design-related. The base Macan, for example, has 20-inch alloy wheels housing black brake calipers, and twin trapezoidal exhausts. It’s equipped with a turbocharged inline-four producing 261 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.
The Macan S has titanium-colored brake calipers and quad exhausts, a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 with 375 hp and 383 lb-ft, and Porsche’s Active Suspension Management with adaptive damping.
The GTS comes standard with a Sport Exhaust System and 21-inch RS Spyder Design satin black wheels. Since it’s a replacement for the Turbo, the GTS gets the full-fat twin-turbo V6 with 434 hp and 406 lb-ft. Other additions to the GTS include GTS seats with additional bolstering and GTS embroidery and a black/red tachometer with a GTS logo.
All models come with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive.
