The Porsche Macan lineup is nearly complete. After unveiling the most powerful version of the Macan in Los Angeles in November, Porsche followed up on the Macan Turbo with the all-new GTS. Porsche took the wraps off the 2020 Macan GTS on December 16 and you can now configure your own GTS online.
The Porsche Macan GTS is being called the no-compromise compromise. It features quite a bit more power and performance than the Macan S, and yet many buyers who may feel like the Macan Turbo is too much will find the right balance in the GTS.
Powering the Porsche Macan GTS is a 2.9-litre, twin-turbo V6. If that engine sounds familiar, it’s because it also powers the Macan Turbo. That said, power has been tuned down to 375 horsepower as opposed to the 434 ponies found in the Turbo. Still, the Macan GTS is plenty fast with a projected 0-100 km/h time of 4.7 seconds when the Sport Chrono Package is added.
The new Macan GTS gets 20 extra horsepower over the previous generation GTS along with the host of improvements made to the entire Macan lineup. A new, digital centre console with a larger centre screen greets Macan owners and adds a touch of refinement that can’t be found on any other compact luxury SUV. The 2020 Macan GTS gets the exclusive features that define models sporting those three iconic letters including Alcantara seats and steering wheel with red stiching, standard 20-inch RS Spyder wheels, standard Porsche Active Suspension Management and a lower ride height. A standard sport exhaust system will dial up the adrenaline every single time you’re out on the road.
The Macan GTS starts at $77,100, about halfway between the Macan S and Macan Turbo. That said, the equipment offered out of the gate in the GTS prices it rather closely to a similarly equipped Macan S. The GTS emphasizes performance and if that’s what you want primarily out of your Macan, it’s definitely the best option in the lineup.
Although it’s fast and handles like a true Porsche performance vehicle, the Macan GTS is also a versatile small SUV that’s perfect for active buyers and growing families. With over 1,500 litres of total cargo space and 488 litres with the rear seats down, the Macan GTS has the interior versatility you are looking for.
