Back in July 2018, the 2019 Porsche Macan was launched officially. So, watch out for the car for sale in Abu Dhabi. However, at the time of release, it was available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. Now, Porsche has expanded the lineup with the release of the 2019 Macan S. The new version of Porsche’s compact SUV has a more powerful 3.0-liter V6 and also has a range of new features.
It comes With A New V6 Engine
The Porsche Macan S has the same engine as the Cayenne, Cayenne E-Hybrid, and Panamera. It has a single twin-scroll turbocharger that is placed at the center of the inner-V of the engine. This layout cut downs the exhaust paths from the combustion chambers leading to the turbocharger. This results in increased responsiveness when compared to the preceding powertrain.
Thanks to the twin-scroll technology, exhaust gas flows are fed continuously to the turbine wheel as separate streams which reduce any charge cycle disadvantages significantly. The twin-scroll turbocharger also offers high torque at low engine speeds. The combustion chamber design encourages efficient mixture formation and the power output per liter has been increased from 113 to 118 PS. The Macan S offers 354 horsepower and 480 Nm of torque.

A Streamlined Design

Porsche has also put in a lot of work into the brakes of the new Macan. The pedal weighs nearly 300 grams less than the previous steel part and it uses a shortened lever arm to act on the brake master cylinder. This improves the brake response and the firm connection results in a more precise pressure point. The diameter of the front brake discs has been increased to 360 mm and the disc thickness now measures at 36 mm. The brake pads are copper-free and the can also be equipped with the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).
