2015 Porsche Macan: The Sport Button
January 21, 2015
I never drive our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S without first pushing the Sport button.
According to Porsche, when you push the Sport button the Macan's "electronic engine management system switches the engine mapping to offer an even sharper response and engine dynamics that are more direct".
Trust me when I tell you, it works. You can feel the difference the instant you push that button. Suddenly the throttle response is quicker, the transmission holds gears longer, and it's quicker to downshift.
It's as if the crossover just received a shot of adrenaline.
Don't misunderstand, without Sport mode activated the Macan is still as engaging and as sporting a drive as any crossover out there.
But turn it on, and it's just about perfect.
