Porsche has launched the new 2022 Porsche Macan GTS with increased performance, a sharper design and a new operating concept. All three available versions come with significantly more power than their predecessors. As the sporty flagship of the successful SUV line-up, the Macan GTS sits at the top of the range. Its 2.9-litre biturbo V6 now delivers 324 kW (440 PS) – an increase of 44 kW (60 PS). With the responsiveness and power delivery that characterises Porsche GTS cars, it completes the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 4.3 seconds when fitted with the Sport Chrono package and reaches a top speed of 272 km/h. The Porsche Macan S is now also equipped with a 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine that produces 20 kW (26 PS) more power than before, with 280 kW (380 PS). This propels the vehicle from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and gives it a top speed of up to 259 km/h. A newly developed, turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with 195 kW (265 PS) serves as the entry point to the Macan world. It completes the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 232 km/h. As before, all engines are coupled to the seven-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) and the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system.
The new Porsche Macan GTS takes over top position in the model line-up: its 2.9-litre biturbo engine delivers 324 kW (440 PS), which is 44 kW (60 PS) more than before. Maximum torque has been increased from 520 to 550 Nm. This is available in a wide rev range of between 1,900 and 5,600 rpm. Its performance figures have also been significantly improved thanks to the increased power: from a standing start, the Porsche Macan GTS reaches the 100 km/h mark in 4.5 seconds. In combination with the optional Sport Chrono package, this sprint is achieved in just 4.3 seconds. Top speed is now 272 km/h. This makes the traditionally very agile GTS the fastest derivative in the product line and the sportiest Macan ever. This is due to the fact that the powertrain of the flagship model also offers typical GTS characteristics in terms of responsiveness and power development as well as its increased output. The Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) with tungsten carbide coating reliably brakes the compact SUV to a standstill.
The all-wheel drive system of the Macan GTS has a particularly dynamic set-up. The newly implemented PTM interaxle lock management gives priority to the rear axle whenever possible. This means that the maximum possible drive is transferred to the rear wheels in every driving situation. This progressive rear-biased powertrain design increases the lateral guidance potential and therefore potential cornering speed. Also newly implemented is the optional limited-slip rear differential of the PTV Plus system, which provides dynamic torque distribution on the rear axle. The GTS Sport package is available exclusively as an option for the Macan GTS in order to further enhance performance. Among other things, this includes the Sport Chrono package, black 21-inch GT Design wheels with high-performance tyres and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus).
The new Macan models also offer a wide suspension bandwidth, balancing maximum suspension comfort and dynamic sports car performance. 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. PASM is available as an option on the Macan and is standard for the S and GTS models. 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 Porsche Macan 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. 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. Performance tyres build up lateral forces more quickly, which, together with further improvements to the car’s body control, have a positive effect on the driving experience. 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.
