The much anticipated Porsche Macan compact SUV, the fifth model line for Porsche, has made its way to India. Two models of Macan are offered in India i.e. Macan S Diesel and Macan Turbo.
Macan makes a striking impression from the very beginning: dramatic acceleration and braking figures, impressive engine power, extreme agility, and optimum steering precision. What’s more, all of these features are combined with a high level of comfort and everyday drivability.
“The Macan possesses all the qualities that have made compact SUVs so popular around the world: a practical, flexible interior; the visibility and sense of security that comes with extra ride height; and the ability to traverse rough roads with ease,“ said Matthias Mueller, President of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “The Macan’s agility, grip and steering precision are easily the best in class – and the 400-horsepower Macan Turbo is certainly the most powerful in its segment,“ he added.
The name Macan comes from the Indonesian word for tiger. And the Macan really does live up to its name: powerful and ready to pounce at any time, yet light-footed and tenacious on off-road terrain. Porsche is one of the pioneers of all-wheel drive technology.
The company’s first implemented all-wheel drive in 1900 in the Lohner-Porsche racecar with its four electric wheel-hub motors. In 1947, Porsche developed the Type 360, better known as the Cisitalia Grand Prix racecar. The car became a true driving legend, not only as a result of its supercharged 12-cylinder engine and consistent lightweight construction, but also thanks to its permanent all-wheel drive. The design was based on the idea that drive power around curves or on roads with low frictional values can be converted into propulsion more fully and more reliably.
