There are five versions of the 2018 Porsche Macan for sale in the United States, and they mainly vary only in engine and standard features. The standard Macan model is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Up next is the Macan S, powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. It produces 340 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque. The Macan GTS comes with a higher-tuned version of the S engine that produces 360 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. The Macan Turbo is equipped with a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 400 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the Macan Turbo with Performance Package utilizes an uprated version of the Turbo motor to produce a whopping 440 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.
All versions of the Macan send power to all four wheels via Porsche's fantastic seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission called PDK. The all-wheel-drive system is calibrated to bias power to the rear wheels, ensuring sports-carlike handling, with the safety net of all-wheel drive when you need it. Combined with suspension calibrated for performance driving, the Macan is more luxury hot hatch than pure SUV.
Like all other Porsches, the Macan is highly customizable. In essence, once you know what aspect of the Macan you want to prioritize, you can configure it out as such. For example, if you want to tow, you can equip your Macan with a tow hitch receiver and an air suspension for ride leveling purposes. If you're a more traditional Porsche owner and value the most sporty handling possible, equip your Macan with 21-inch wheels on summer tires for grip, and the optional Sport Chrono package and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus. These options allow your Macan to activate launch control for the quickest acceleration.
Of course, what's the point of all this performance if you can't show it off? Here, Porsche gives potential owners a lot of freedom to choose exterior colors, interior colors and materials and, of course, performance and usability options. If a Macan is in your future, let Edmunds help you build the perfect one.
