Featuring a dynamic profile with a lower roofline and raked rear windows, the new Macan is surely a looker. The S Trim of Macan will feature a 3.0l V6 delivering 340 hp and a seven speed dual clutch, this gives the car a 0-100 kmph acceleration time of 5.2 seconds (or 5.0 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package). The Macan S reaches a top track speed of 156 mph.

Speaking about the more powerful Macan Turbo, it features a 3.6 liter V6 twin turbo engine, which is being used in a Porsche model for the very first time, achieves an unrivalled 400 hp and catapults the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. With the Sport Chrono package, it is possible to achieve such a speed in 4.4 seconds. The Macan Turbo top track speed is 164 mph.

Macan length stands at 4,680mm, width is 1,920mm and height is 1,620mm as against Cayenne measurements of 4,850mm length, 1,940mm width and 1,710mm height. Though price is yet to be revealed, the Macan base surely has the potential to undercut the entry level Porsche, which starts from $49,500.
