New Porsche Macan debuts, priced from RM434K

By CARSIFU | 7 January 2022

KUALA LUMPUR: The refreshed Porsche Macan has arrived in Malaysia, priced from from RM433,154.

It is now available for booking and is offered in three variants: Macan from RM433,154; Macan S from RM623,593; and Macan GTS from RM786,232.

They are backed by 2 years warranty and 2 years free maintenance.

Note that the Macan is still in its first generation, with Porsche set to deliver an all-electric Macan in the second generation from 2023. The electric Macan, codenamed E-Macan, will be sold alongside the combustion engine Macan, once it's out. At least for a few more years until Porsche AG can gauge demand for the electric SUV in different regions of the world.

Featuring an enhanced design with new 3D structural elements and dynamic side blades for a sporty look, the latest Macan has been updated for sharpness, with a modern interior and performance to match.

The Macan's nose has been redesigned with an inlay in the exterior colour that emphasises the car’s width, complementing a new 3D structural element to give the car a more imposing look at the front.

At the back, a striking diffuser in a particularly technical design increases the car’s sportiness when viewed from the rear. LED headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and Sport Design exterior mirrors are now standard on all models.

Inside, the Macan features a sporty and elegant interior with selected equipment from the 911 Carrera, as well as a futuristic centre console with a high-quality glass look, packed with intuitive touch-sensitive surfaces to elevate day-to-day practicality.

The Macan is powered by a redeveloped 2.0 litre inline four-cylinder turbo engine, delivering 261hp and a maximum torque of 400Nm, or an increase of 13hp and 30Nm compared to the previous generation.

The Macan S uses a new 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine that produces 375hp, 26hp more power than before.

This new powerplant propels the vehicle from a standstill to 100kph in 4.6 seconds, onto a top speed of up to 259kph.

Under the bonnet of the new sporty flagship Macan GTS, the 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine now delivers 434hp – an increase of 59hp.

With the responsiveness and power delivery typical of Porsche GTS cars, it completes the 0 to 100kph sprint in 4.3 seconds when fitted with the Sport Chrono package and reaches a top speed of 272kph.

All engines are coupled to a seven-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) and the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system.

The Macan and Macan S are equipped with a Premium Package as standard.

The package adds more comfort and luxury features such as 14-way electric comfort seats with memory package, Power Steering Plus, Park Assist including reversing camera and surround view, automatic dimming interior and exterior mirrors, and BOSE Surround Sound System.

The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) now also comes as standard and is available in the Premium Package, actively and continuously regulating the damping force for each individual wheel and adapted specifically for this model.

A total of 14 colours are available for the all-new Macan range, including the new colours Papaya Metallic and Gentian Blue Metallic; Python Green exclusively for the Macan GTS.

With its Individual Colour and Paint To Sample options, Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur further expands the potential for design freedom for the Macan. Larger wheels are also fitted as standard: they measure at least 19 inches for the Macan.

“With its powerful yet sophisticated appearance, the all-new Macan hints at what lies beneath an ideal compact SUV for the driven expressive urbanite, toeing the line brilliantly between sporty exhilaration and dynamic performance even day-to-day around the city,” said Sime Darby Auto Performance chief executive officer Christopher Hunter.
