New 2018 Macan Sport Celebrates Porsche's 70th Anniversary
In anticipation of Porsche’s 70th anniversary celebration, Porsche Philippines is highlighting its new Macan Sport, a compact SUV that embodies the full heritage of Porsche. Characterized by five doors, five seats, all-wheel drive, and a higher sitting position, the Macan Sport is keeping with the Porsche Philosophy where sporty style and performance are injected into everyday driving.
The new Macan Sport is highly recognizable by its distinctive sporty appearance and offers Porsche customers a myriad of standard features designed to immerse driver and passengers in the full Porsche experience. It brings a higher level of sporty performance with its newly added adaptive air suspension coupled with the Porsche Active Suspension Management.
This setup provides for a high level of comfort and tremendous dynamic performance that can take on all-road conditions. The self-levelling function also helps to keep the ride height constant. The new Macan Sport rolls on impressive 20-inch RS Spyder design rims, providing an outstanding look that is instantly recognizable. Fulfilling the requirements of a sports car, the new Macan Sport follows the Porsche principle of active safety. Integrated in this compact SUV is the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) that helps ensure stability at the limits of sporty performance.
The interior architecture of the new Macan integrates its driver and passengers perfectly into the vehicle. This is exemplified by the three-dimensional arrangement of the controls and the ascending center console with control buttons for the most important comfort functions. The multi-function sports steering wheel with 918 Spyder design also provides the ideal hands-on experience. With a curb weight of 1,770 kilograms, the Macan is the lightest SUV made by Porsche, which translates into agile handling.
Under the hood of the Macan Sport is a 2.0-liter turbocharged motor delivering 252 horsepower from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm. Mated to a 7-speed PDK dual clutch automatic, it delivers a 0-100 km/h of just 6.7 seconds and a top speed of 229 km/h. In terms of fuel consumption, the Macan proves to be very efficient, consuming just 13.9 km/L.
Built for a thrilling lifestyle, the new Macan Sport offers a more intensified Porsche driving experience. With this model, Porsche is once more underlining its claim that the Macan is the sports car among compact SUVs.
