Porsche hit the jackpot when they released the Cayenne in 2002, bringing huge profits and enabling more development of their GT program and saving the company to a lot of people.
So it makes sense that they capitalise on the growing SUV market and released a smaller version – the Macan. Well now the Macan has had its first major facelift and sees in 2019 with a slightly revised nose, totally new look for the rear end and plenty of design and tech revisions to the interior bringing this small SUV right up to date.
Given that Porsche has killed off all of their diesel models this is the new entry point and uses a 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder engine putting out 242bhp and 370Nm or torque. It may not set the world alight when you bury the throttle, but 0-62mph in 6.7 is hot-hatch quick, while 35mpg is respectable enough too.
The thing is, this 4cyl engine loses about 20kg over the nose of the car over the V6 models, so this is actually the sweetest handling of all the Macans…
