The compact SUV is named for the Indonesian word for tiger, a Porsche executive announced at a Wednesday press conference. With the Macan, the iconic sports car maker has added a second SUV to its lineup that includes its top-selling Cayenne luxury SUV.
The Macan will be offered in two configurations—the Macan S base model and Macan Turbo that will arrive at U.S. dealerships in late spring. The Macan S will retail for $49,900 while the Macan Turbo will retail for $72,300.
Porsche will offer the Macan with an active all-wheel drivetrain and two engine configurations. The Macan S is powered by a 3.0-liter V-6 twin-turbo engine that delivers 340 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque, while the Macan Turbo offers a 3.6 liters V-6 that produces 400 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.
The S can reach 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds; the Turbo reaches it in 4.6 seconds. Fuel economy is still unknown. Read full specs here.
