The new Porsche Macan has completely revamped drive systems. Porsche now equips the Macan S with a newly developed 6-cylinder V engine. The turbocharged engine with a displacement of three litres delivers 260 kW (354 hp) and develops a maximum torque of 480 Nm. This corresponds to an increase of 10 kW (14 hp) compared with the previous model. As a result, the acceleration time from standstill to 100 km/h is reduced by 0.1 second to 5.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package, the top speed is reached at 254 km/h. There is a further developed four-cylinder turbocharged engine with a displacement of two litres under the bonnet of the Porsche Macan. This delivers 180 kW (245 hp) and has a maximum torque of 370 Nm. The Macan accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 225 km/h. The new petrol engines are equipped with a gasoline particulate filter in Europe and comply with the emission standard Euro 6d-Temp.

The six-cylinder engine of the Porsche Macan S is a high-tech power unit. Used for the first time in the Panamera, the engine has been introduced for the Cayenne and now also for the Macan. The most conspicuous feature is the mono turbocharger located in the inner V in the so-called central turbo layout. The short exhaust gas paths between the combustion chambers and the turbocharger ensure outstanding and immediate responsiveness, which perfectly complements a dynamic driving style. The new twin-scroll turbocharger provides high torque in the low engine speed range. At the same time, it contributes to enhanced responsiveness. With twin-scroll technology, the exhaust gas flows are continuously fed to the turbine wheel as separate streams. This significantly reduces any charge cycle disadvantages. The further-developed combustion chamber geometry with central injector facilitates efficient mixture preparation. In addition to the increase in the power output per litre from 113 to 118 hp, the exhaust emissions have also been improved. Up to three injections per working cycle optimise combustion and thus reduce the noxious constituents in the exhaust gas.

The Porsche Macan is the sporty role model in the compact SUV segment. It owes this position above all to a chassis that is typical for sports cars. This provides unique lateral dynamics without neglecting everyday comfort. The chassis engineers examined every chassis component for further optimisation potential for the facelift. With detailed improvements and a completely new setup, the Macan again raises the bar for sporty driving. On the front axle, spring forks made of aluminium replace the previous steel components. The spring forks are spread over the drive shafts and connect the springs and dampers with the front-axle carrier. The new light alloy design is more rigid and reduces the unsprung masses by around 1.5 kilograms. As a result, the Macan steers even more precisely and the suspension is even more comfortable. The spring characteristics of the optional air suspension have also been improved thanks to optimised rolling pistons and new shock absorber hydraulics.

A lot of detailed work has also gone into the brakes of the new Macan. The driver notices this above all through the changed pedal feeling. The driver presses a so-called organic sheet pedal made of moulded, glass fibre-reinforced thermoplastic sheet material with back-injected plastic rib structure. This pedal weighs around 300 g less than the previous steel part and acts on the brake master cylinder via a shortened lever arm. As a result, the brake response is more immediate and the driver also feels a very precise pressure point through the very rigid connection. Sporty drivers in particular will value this optimised feedback. The even sportier orientation of the new Porsche Macan is reflected in the larger front brake discs on the S model. The disc diameter has been increased by 10 mm to 360 mm, and the disc thickness has grown by 2 mm to 36 mm. All new brake linings are copper-free. The Porsche Macan S can be optionally equipped with the PCCB ceramic brake system.
