Thankfully, the return of Macan Turbo will satisfy the enthusiasts and it also gets amped up. CarSwitch.com gives you the details.
As far as the engine is concerned, 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo borrows the twin turbo 2.9L V6 powerhouse from the Cayenne and Panamera. Even though it seems like a downgrade from the twin turbo 3.6L V6 engine, don’t be disappointed. It gets more power with additional 34 hp and comes with a 20 percent less displacement as well.
The total output for this all new Turbo version is a fiery 434 hp from 5,700 rpm and 550 of torque. This Macan Turbo can round up 0-100 kph in 4.3 seconds. However, opt for Sports Chrono Package and it will waive off three tenths of a second for that time. The top speed for this one is a revving 270 kph. The engine is paired with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Moreover, the power distribution is done successfully to all four wheels through the Porsche Traction Management System (PTM).
The 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo has better brakes as well but that’s not all. The brakes come with an overlay of a solid layer of tungsten carbide which will provide better stopping power. Porsche claims that this enhances responsiveness, reduces dust by 90% along with cutting down wear which might help extend the life of your car brakes. If you can’t afford a Turbo version though, these are optional for all Macan models. For those who require more agility, air adaptive suspension which comprises of “optimized rolling pistons and new shock absorber hydraulics” is also available along with some other options.
On the design end, the exclusive front fascia features three air intakes with dual LED strip lights. To differentiate it from the rest, it gets Sports Design side skirts and Sports Design exterior mirrors in body color. On the rear, the Turbo gets a fixed rear roof spoiler which is exclusive for this model and the Macan sits on top of 20-inch wheels. Moreover, its equipped with a sports exhaust system as standard which adds unique, twin silver tailpipes.
The interior of the Macan Turbo is decorated by Alcantara headliner and an 18-way power adjustable seats. Furthermore, it possesses a 665-watt 14-speaker Bose sound system, a massive 10.9 infotainment screen and Qi wireless charger. It also gets a heated windscreen which might not be a huge plus considering the summers in the UAE. In case you get stuck in traffic, its traffic jam assistant incorporates adaptive cruise control, help in acceleration as well as brake semi-automatically up to 60 kph. Most importantly, it helps driver manoeuvre through traffic jams.
The 2020 Macan Turbo certainly seems impressive enough to compel you to sell your car in Sharjah. Great news is that it is now available to order and might be available in the UAE very soon. Although, if you’re still in love with the previous Macan Turbo, you might find one on CarSwitch.com!
