The German premium brand has revealed details about the new Porsche Macan. The place of the flagship is now taken by the GTS modification, which has the power of Turbo.

The new performance-focused 2022 Porsche Macan crossover is here. The brand has completely declassified its future novelty. Biggest news: No Turbo option. The top tier Macan is now called the GTS.

It gets a 434-horsepower version of the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 used in the Turbo. Porsche says it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.1 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package. This is slightly faster than the Turbo result. So the “personnel changes” did not compromise productivity.

In general, the Macan shows good dynamics in all trim levels. The base 2.0-liter four-cylinder Macan turbocharged engine has increased to 261bhp. and 400 Nm of torque compared to last year. And the Macan S now takes the place of last year’s GTS. Such an electric car gets an improved V6 with a capacity of 375 hp. All modifications are all-wheel drive with a seven-speed PDK gearbox with dual clutch transmission.

The GTS version has special brakes with Porsche Surface Coated Brakes, as well as adaptive air suspension with slightly lowered ground clearance.

It is 15% stiffer than the previous GTS. A sports package is available as an option for the GTS. The Sport Design side mirrors are finished in high-gloss black, the 21-inch GT Design wheels are fitted with high-performance tires, 18-way sports seats are inside, and the side panels, as well as the front and rear panels, have been tried on in black.

The new Macan has also changed in appearance: the silhouette has become more square and symmetrical, there are spectacular built-in air intakes on the front panel and a black diffuser extended upwards. LED headlights are standard, and Porsche says there are no fewer than seven new wheel designs to choose from, starting in 19-inch or 21-inch sizes depending on trim level.

In the interior of the electric car, the center console has been redesigned, there are more touch keys, as well as storage spaces. There is also a new steering wheel, borrowed from the 911, and a shorter gear lever. The centerpiece is the 10.9-inch touchscreen. The list of options for the new items includes modern driver’s assistants and security systems. The most affordable Macan of 2022 was priced at $ 54,900. The Macan S starts at $ 65,400 and the flagship GTS starts at $ 79,000. The new product will appear at dealers in the USA in early 2022.

Meanwhile, it became known that the Californian holding company HAAH Automotive abandoned plans to import Chinese cars to the United States. The company is on the verge of bankruptcy.
