Porsche Macan S - Exhaust emission control

Exhaust emission control


The basic premise of any Porsche is power. It's been that way ever since 1948. But there has always been another principle: efficiency. Again, since 1948. We remain committed to both, and we always will.

In addition to our pursuit of efficient engine technologies, such as the turbochargers used across the model range, we routinely rely on innovative, lightweight materials, we are constantly developing our production techniques and functionalities and, as we do so, we are continuously refining our concepts.

How does this benefit you as the driver? Greater agility with increased dynamic performance – and lower fuel consumption. Now that's efficiency.

Exhaust emissions

The Macan once again demonstrates that even high-performance sports cars can achieve comparatively moderate emission values. The state-of-the-art engines of the Macan model range reach their optimum operating temperature soon after start-up, thanks to the rapid heating of the catalytic converter system. Emissions are thereby reduced, while tyres optimised for low rolling resistance play their part by lowering fuel consumption. All models in the Macan range fulfil the Euro 6 emission standard.

The petrol models are equipped with stereo Lambda control circuits. These are used by the electronic engine management to determine the optimum amount of fuel for effective emission control.

Emission control in the Macan S Diesel is realised by the interaction of a diesel particulate filter and the SCR system. AdBlue® technology helps to achieve a significant reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions.
