Engines

Macan Turbo S
Uses the same 3.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine as the standard Macan Turbo, but it’s even quicker, thanks to another 39bhp and 37lb ft of torque. Fuel economy and emissions are only marginally worse than the regular Turbo.
Macan
The 249bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine is shared with the other Volkswagen Group products, including the Audi Q5 and VW Golf GTi, although in the Macan it’s driven by Porsche’s own seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. It&#39;s the best engine in the range for company car tax but, despite a claimed 39.2mpg, don&#39;t expect it to be cheap to run in the real world. Performance is brisk, with 0-62mph dispatched in 6.7sec.
Macan GTS
The GTS has a slightly more potent version of the 3.0-litre V6 from the Macan S. It’s a little quicker, but can’t match the rabidly fast Turbo.
Macan Turbo
Blisteringly rapid – think hardcore sports car pace rather than SUV – and yet still easy to mooch about in around town, smooth-revving and refined. A great car, but hard to justify the price despite outrageous performance.
Our pick
Macan S
This 335bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine is punchy and refined, and revs progressively to its peaky redline; you do have to rev it quite hard to get the best performance from it, though. When you do, it&#39;ll whizz from 0-62mph in just 5.4sec, but fuel consumption is only a claimed 32.1mpg, with emissions from 207g/km.
