Porsche Macan Models - Macan principle

Macan principle

Let’s begin at the heart. All engines are characterised not only by their impressive performance and high efficiency but, above all, by the typical resonance of Acoustic test chamber in Porsche Development Centre, Weissach their sound, making a particularly strong impression in conjunction with the optional sports exhaust system. 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 and Macan GTS), 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 threeposition 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 Keeping Assist monitors your car’s distance to divider line markings on the road.

Intensive living can also be measured in bits and bytes – for example, with the new version of Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including optional navigation module. The optional Connect Plus module offers wireless Internet access and online navigation, featuring real-time traffic information in the map view of the navigation system (including GOOGLE® Earth and GOOGLE® Street View*). The module also comes with Apple® CarPlay, which you can use to access the apps of your iPhone® conveniently from the driver’s seat – using PCM or the voice control system.

So you see: being highly networked can also be the principle of a sports car. That's because, for us, staying true to one's principles is essential. The principle of power above all.

* The services real-time traffic information, GOOGLE® Street View and GOOGLE® Earth are offered free of charge for 12 months. Please visit if you wish to continue usage (subject to charge) after this period. A data-enabled SIM card and a separate, valid subscription to a mobile network provider (subject to charge) are required for use of these services and wireless Internet access.
