A new 2017 Macan has arrived and it’s proof that Porsche isn't afraid to push the boundaries. The Porsche Macan 2.0L 4 Cylinder is a performance compact SUV infused with a racing soul. This efficiency-minded luxury vehicle will grant its drivers 252 Horsepower at 5000 - 6800 rpm using its Turbocharged 2.0 liter 4cyl engine. The Macan 4 Cyl has a starting price of $47500 plus destination and optional equipment. The added gas mileage and all-wheel-drive ability make this capable Porsche SUV an affordable option for any Bay Area resident looking to get behind the wheel of a Macan.
All Macan drivers will experience the 7 speed active PDK transmission, which effortly changes between each of the 7 gears in milliseconds. What makes this seamless gear shifting possible is in part by how the PDK pre-selects the next gear when you’re shifting so you can quickly get the most power when you need. The PDK makes for a smooth accelerating experience familiar to Porsche enthusiasts. You may boost your Macan's efficiency by choosing the 2.0L 4 Cyl trim which spares a fraction of top end speed for added energy performance. This 4 cylinder Macan trim is a great option for our San Francisco Bay drivers wanting both power and efficiency. If your driving style calls for a more aggressive powertrain, additional engine and performance options are available.
Porsche offers additional driving assistant technologies for when you’re less focused on getting the checkered flag and more concerned with your driving experience. Some of these systems, including Adaptive cruise control, Porsche active safe (PAS) help to regulate your speed based on the driving climate. Lane change assist and Lane keep assist will help keep your Porsche centered so all your driving will be more deliberate. You may find value in these features for commuting up or down the peninsula or for longer trips out of Silicon Valley or Northern California.
Every Porsche Macan offers a standard safety suite that aims to protect you and your passengers. The Macan is outfitted with full-size airbags for driver and front seat passengers. These are also supplemented by the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP) as well as the super high strength body steel that surrounds the entire cockpit of the Macan.
The new Porsche Communication Management system is what connects you and your technology to the Macan’s driving computer. This in-dash and fully immersive system offers you and your passengers a modern link to 2017 generation technology with its 7 inch multi touch display. You’ll be able to connect your wireless device a number of ways so that your driving soundtrack never hits a dull beat. Operating the PCM is intuitive and can even be used directly from the Macan steering wheel. For even more control and access to your Macan’s communication system, use the Porsche Connect App which will give you remote access to elements of your compact SUV and will help locate your vehicle in a theft situation even if your Macan has left California.
