2017 Porsche Macan Entry-Level Model Arrives at Dealerships in July

ATLANTA — A new entry-level 2017 Porsche Macan luxury SUV will arrive at Porsche dealerships in July, starting at $48,550, including a $1,050 destination charge. The more affordable Macan will debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show in late March.

The base 2017 Macan is equipped with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine and standard seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The engine is rated at 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.

Top track speed on the new base Macan is 142 mph. When equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package with launch control, the base Macan makes the 0-60 mph sprint in 6.1 seconds.

Porsche said the base Macan delivers 20 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway, for an estimated improvement of up to 18 percent compared to the Macan S. The EPA has not posted official fuel economy numbers for the base Macan.

The new Macan is less expensive than the 2017 Porsche Macan S, which is priced at $55,450, including shipping.

The Macan S is equipped with a 340-hp 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine.

Exterior cues on the entry-level Macan include matte-black window trim and black brake calipers, along with stainless-steel dual exhaust pipes.

Standard equipment includes bi-xenon headlights, eight-way power front seats, a Piano Black interior package and a lane-departure warning system.

Four Macan models are now available.

They also include the Macan GTS, which starts at $68,250 and the top-of-the-line Macan Turbo, priced at $77,050. Prices include shipping.

Key Macan competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Infiniti QX70 and Land Rover Range Rover Evoque.

Edmunds says: The expanded Macan lineup and new pricing strategy offers something for just about every luxury SUV shopper.
