2015 Porsche Macan S: Fuel Economy Update for October
November 5, 2014
We added another 1,600 miles or so on our 2015 Porsche Macan S in October. A couple of short road trips boosted the overall mileage slightly, while our around-town driving made sure it didn't move the numbers too far out of the norm.
Editor in Chief Scott Oldham managed to set the single tank record with a run of 351.7 miles on one tank. We're guessing it could probably squeeze out another 20 or 30 miles if you're careful with your speed. Consider 350 miles an easily achievable range on the highway.
Our overall mileage of 16.5 mpg is still well below the EPA number for combined driving, so clearly we're still enjoying the Macan's performance on a regular basis. It's hard not to drive it fast as it feels more like a tightly wound sedan than a compact SUV.
