Porsche PH Now Taking Orders For First-Ever 2022 Macan T


Porsche Philippines is now taking orders for the first-ever Macan T. The T stands for “Touring” for Porsche, and it identifies models that offer an “especially authentic driving experience thanks to precise tuning, exclusive equipment, and efficient engines.”

Slotting between the Macan and Macan S in the line-up, the Macan T packs a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that offers an ideal balance of weight and power. Compared to the 2.9-liter biturbo V6 engine in the Macan S and GTS models, the powertrain in the Macan T weighs 58.8 kg less on the front axle. This gives the vehicle excellent start-off performance and optimum cornering ability.

The Macan T has an output of 265 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque mated to a fast-switching 7-speed dual clutch automatic (PDK). It also gets the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive as standard. When fitted with the standard Sport Chrono Package including the mode switch and Sport Response button on the steering wheel, the Macan T accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 232 km/h.


The Macan T is the only Porsche model to feature steel suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) as standard, combined with the body being lowered by 15 mm. The anti-roll bars on the front axle are more rigid and the car’s chassis tuning has been optimized to create the perfect suspension for the vehicle and powertrain, resulting in very responsive steering behavior and agile handling.

The Porsche Traction Management (PTM) has also been adapted to the driving demands of the Macan T and has been specially designed with a rear-wheel bias. Customers can still opt for adaptive air suspension, and this further lowers the body by 10 mm.

Setting the Macan T apart from the rest of the line-up, it gets Agate Gray Metallic elements on the front, sides, and rear. The Sports tailpipes and side window trims are also finished in high-gloss black, as is the ‘Macan T’ logo. Imposing twenty-inch Macan S wheels, exclusively in dark titanium, come as standard. Customers can choose from a range of 13 plain, metallic, and special colors for the exterior.


The interior of the Macan T has its own distinct ambience. The standard, eight-way electrically adjustable heated sports seats feature exclusive upholstery. The center of the front seats and the outer rear seats are delivered with the Sport-Tex Stripe pattern and the front headrests each have an embossed Porsche crest. The contrasting color from the exterior continues inside the vehicle in the form of decorative silver stitching on the seats, headrests, and steering wheel.

Standard equipment also includes a multifunction GT heated sports steering wheel and the Sport Chrono stopwatch in the upper part of the dashboard. The door entry guards come in black aluminum as standard and feature a Macan T logo. The center console also features a glass-look and touch-sensitive surface complete with a 10.9-inch touchscreen as standard.

    1. PGA will only quote based on the spec that you order. But to give you an idea, the base Macan costs close to P 5M already. The Macan S will likely reach around P6M or thereabouts.
