Base Porsche Macan Will Receive 237HP 4-Cylinder Engine


Won't be sold to power-hungry Americans.

After introducing its Macan CUV in three forms – the S, Turbo and S Diesel – Porsche has now revealed that the family will gain an entry-level model, sporting a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. The base crossover will produce 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, making the 0-62 mph sprint in 6.9 seconds when mated to a PDK dual-clutch transmission. But before Porsche loyalists get all worked up, let us assure you that this model won’t be headed for US shores just yet.

The four-cylinder Macan will be differentiated from its six-cylinder brothers with dual tailpipes (as opposed to quads on the other models), but will still come standard with an automatic tailgate, 18-inch wheels, paddle shifters, dual-zone climate control and Alcantara seat inlays. As many Macan buyers are already expected to be more trend-oriented than gear-headed, the base Macan model should push even more customers into what is expected to be Porsche’s best-selling model ever.
