The new Macan models also offer a wide suspension bandwidth, balancing maximum suspension comfort and dynamic sports car performance. The Porsche Macan GTS now sets itself apart from the other derivatives even more than before with its now-standard sports air suspension, which lowers the body by 10 millimetres. The dynamic benefits of the new GTS are above all due to the fact that its air suspension is 10 per cent more rigid on the front axle, and 15 per cent more on the rear, compared with its predecessor. The optional GTS Sport package further increases the dynamic potential of the car, with 21-inch GT design wheels with high-performance tyres, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and the Sport Chrono package. The chassis has been optimised further: the Macan now responds with even more sensitivity and more directly to the driving situation and road conditions, giving the driver even better feedback via the steering wheel. For this purpose, elements such as the damper characteristics of the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) have been adapted specifically for this model. It actively and continuously regulates the damping force for each individual wheel.
The Porsche Macan S has established itself as the sportiest car in its segment. It is now strengthening this position once more: optimised running gear, stiffer anti-roll bars and even more sensitive steering comprehensively improve the handling of the compact SUV. The Macan GTS makes the largest leap forward in this respect. As the new flagship, it masters the balance between dynamics and comfort more effortlessly than ever before. The Macan and Macan S can be optionally equipped with adaptive air suspension, which includes PASM. Height-adjustable sports air suspension, including the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) adaptive damper control system, is fitted as standard equipment exclusive to the Macan GTS. The suspension and damping have been optimised for the optional GTS Sport package and the high-performance tyres that come with it. Thanks to stiffer springs – an extra 10 per cent on the front axle and 15 per cent on the rear – larger anti-roll bars and newly developed dampers, it has been possible to further reduce body pitch and roll as well as body movement on rebound. In combination with the 10 mm reduction in suspension height, this results in a clearly noticeable improvement in handling and performance.
The new Macan S is being launched with two engines, one of which – a twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 – powers the Porsche Macan GTS and Macan S. As is usual for all Porsche V engines, the turbochargers are located between the cylinder banks in a central turbo layout. A newly developed inline four-cylinder engine in the Macan combines dynamics and efficiency in a particularly harmonious way. All drivetrains in the new Macan models are significantly more powerful than in their predecessors. In order to ensure that the instant power development of the engines is transmitted as directly as possible, the seven-speed Porsche PDK dual-clutch transmission (PDK) is still used to transfer drive to the axles. The proven Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system transmits the power continuously to the rear axle, and variably to the front axle when required. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) optionally improves lateral dynamics in all models with a limited-slip rear differential and targeted braking interventions.
The Porsche Macan S is the sports car in the compact SUV class and underlines this claim with an appearance that fully reflects the Porsche design DNA. The exterior and interior of the new Macan have been further sharpened and optimised. A range of new wheels, additional design elements and exterior packages offer yet more individualisation options. Like the new nose, the Macan’s rear apron also features a refined and technical design. The new 3D elements are repeated with the diffuser, which has also been extended upwards and has integrated reflectors. As before, the designers have incorporated the tail light clusters with their three-dimensional light graphics into a light bar. The completely redesigned nose emphasises the width of the Macan, thereby enhancing the model’s athletic presence. The large nose panel features balanced proportions and is painted in exterior colour, blending in harmoniously with the cooling air intakes. The nose incorporates a new 3D design in the centre cooling air intake below the grille. The headlights are equipped as standard with LED technology and the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). Darkened headlights are optional on the Macan and Macan S and are standard on the Macan GTS.
