The Porsche Macan: Everything you need to know

Everything you need to know about the four-cylinder Porsche Macan

When people think of Porsche, they immediately associate the brand with impressive performance, high-end luxury, and exclusivity. Porsche vehicles have a lot of competition, but to enthusiasts and owners alike, they are a cut above the pack. That said, what some may not know is that it can be relatively affordable to get behind the wheel of a new Porsche. With that in mind, let’s have a look at the most affordable Porsche vehicle for sale in Canada, the entry-level Porsche Macan.

Two less cylinders for the entry-level Porsche Macan

The base Porsche Macan used to start upwards of $60,000, but that all changed last year when Porsche introduced a new Macan version powered by a four-cylinder engine. Priced at $54,100, the new Porsche Macan entry-level model gives buyers the chance to get behind the wheel and experience everything Porsche vehicles have to offer, but at a price point that is equivalent to its competition. Moreover, the base Macan also has the ability to impress when it comes to fuel-efficiency as well.

The four-cylinder in question is a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that delivers 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Porsche being Porsche, they made sure that the Macan’s engine, even with only four cylinders, was more powerful than what you find under the competition’s hood.

Getting to 100 km/h requires only 6.7 seconds (6.5 seconds if you opt for the Sport Chrono package), but fuel economy is rated at just 10.6 liters per 100 kilometers. That’s quite impressive for a compact luxury sport utility vehicle with so much power.

Of course, the Porsche Macan’s entry-level version is more than just an engine that combines efficiency and performance. It provides everything you could expect from a Porsche in the handling department, and its driving dynamics are unlike any other vehicle in its class. Read any review on the new Macan, and that’s usually what comes out.

A lot of standard equipment in the entry-level Porsche Macan

Despite its starting price, the new Macan powered by the four-cylinder engine happens to offer quite a bit of equipment. Indeed, all-wheel drive is standard as are 18-inch wheels and three-zone climate controls. A wide range of optional features covering everything from comfort to safety technology can be added.

Some examples include heated seats in the back, ventilated seats in the front, Porsche’s entry & drive keyless system, a BOSE surround sound audio system, bi-xenon headlights, and a panoramic roof system. There are also a host of customization possibilities to make your Macan stand out.

With the entry-level Porsche Macan, you get better fuel economy to go with the same driving pleasure and performance you would expect from a Porsche vehicle. To learn more about the Porsche Macan lineup, contact us today at Porsche Center Calgary.
