Porsche Macan S Diesel 245 hp - Macan Principle

Macan Principle

Let's begin at the heart. From the fourcylinder turbo and six-cylinder turbo diesel to the twin-turbo six-cylinder, all engines are characterised not only by their impressive performance and high efficiency but, above all, by the typical resonance of their sound. The power of the new Macan models is transmitted to the road by active all-wheel drive. This system sets standards for driving dynamics and stability. Mixed tyres are fitted as standard – as seen on the 911 – to deliver even greater traction and agility.

Fitted as standard, 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) lets you experience motorsport-style gear changes, which take place in milliseconds and with no interruption in the flow of power. The system also features a coasting mode, which reduces fuel consumption and emissions where the driving situation allows. To this end, the auto start/stop function, intelligent thermal management and many more efficiency-enhancing measures make a decisive contribution.

The steel spring suspension, fitted as standard, helps to provide the driving precision and performance typical of any Porsche. As an option (standard in the Macan Turbo), it can be upgraded to include optional Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). At the push of a button, the shock absorbers respond even more precisely to the current driving style. An air suspension is available for even greater dynamic performance and a high level of ride comfort. With this suspension, the Macan sits 15 mm lower. The three-position ride-height adjustment capability enables you to adapt it optimally to the driving situation.

Optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) lets you feel the Macan principle in every corner – and in a particularly intense way. Operating in conjunction with an electronically controlled rear differential lock, the system works by varying the torque distribution to the rear wheels and thereby significantly further improves handling and steering precision. It also increases the agility of the car when it attacks the corner.

Naturally, active safety also follows the Macan principle – and, in doing so, fulfils the requirements of a sports car. Integrated as standard, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) helps to ensure stability at the limits of sporty performance. Typically Porsche, the brakes set standards for deceleration.

Optional driver assistance systems relieve your workload so that you can have more fun. Adaptive cruise control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS) regulates the speed of your vehicle in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. Lane Change Assist monitors your blind spots, while Lane Assist monitors your car's distance to divider line markings on the road.

Intensive living can also be measured in bits and bytes, with Porsche Car Connect for instance. Available as an option, our comprehensive packages of remote and PVTS (Porsche Vehicle Tracking System) services provide you with all the important information about your Macan – not only when you're behind the wheel. Other digital functionalities of the Macan include the ability to log into social networks or search for a Point of Interest and then select it directly as your navigation destination. Being highly networked – that, too, can be the principle of a sports car.
