The SUV from Porsche is the Updated 2015 Macan

The Macan comes into 2015 as a new small SUV offering that is not so much the smaller version of the Cayenne but the larger version of the 911 that so many associate with Porsche name.  The simple reality is the Macan is a small crossover SUV that offers the great style and performance that has become synonymous with Porsche and gives owners the feeling of driving a car while having the space that many small crossover SUVs offer to many owners.

Two versions of the Macan will be available the Macan S that will be approximately $50,895 and the Macan Turbo that will have a price tag around $73,295.  Even though one is called turbo, they both are powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine.  That V6 comes in the form of a 3.0-liter engine that offers 340 horsepower and 339 lb.-ft. of torque for the S model and the 3.6-liter engine for the Turbo model that brings in a massive 400 horsepower and 406 lb.-ft. of torque.  Both engines area mated to a seven-speed PDK double-clutch automatic transmission that gives a very near instant performance regardless of the type of shifting needed.
