The recently introduced Porsche Macan base version now gets an official starting price of RM 415,000, as announced by Porsche Malaysia (Sime Darby Auto Performance).  The Porsche Macan, in its entry-level variation, was previously previewed at the Sepang International Circuit.

The range of equipment fitted on the entry-level Macan as standard is extensive, and includes the 7-Speed PDK, latest generation of Porsche Communication Management (PCM), three-zone automatic climate control, Lane Departure Warning System, Power Steering Plus, Park Assist (front and rear), Porsche Entry and Drive, Tyre Pressure Monitoring system (TPM) and Anti-theft protection (ultrasonic interior surveillance).

In addition, the centerpiece of the new future Porsche Communication Management system (PCM), standard in all Macansis a high-resolution seven-inch touchscreen. The redesigned user interface enables operation that is intuitive and smartphone-like. Bluetooth, USB and SD card interfaces make it possible to integrate smartphones and memory media.

The LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) is available as an optional feature, which continuously adjusts the headlight level in keeping with the traffic ahead and any oncoming traffic.

Performance-wise, the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine in the Macan delivers 185 kW (252 hp) from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm. A torque rating of 370 Nm, available between 1,600 rpm and 4,500 rpm, enable fast overtaking maneuvers. With an increase of 15 horsepower from its predecessor, the Macan delivers an impressive acceleration to 229 km/h, reaching 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds, and with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the time is reduced to 6.5 seconds.

Porsche Macan: Sporty turbocharged four-cylinder

The in-line four-cylinder engine is designed to be particularly sporty and efficient: It operates with up to two bars of boost pressure, charge-air cooling, petrol direct injection and variable valve timing.  As is characteristic for all Porsche models, the Macan is capable of converting its engine power into exceptionally sporty driving dynamics. This is ensured by the standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive system in interplay with an agile suspension and precise steering. An air suspension system with levelling control including the PASM with adaptive dampers is available as an option. With an unladen weight of 1,770 kilograms, the Macan is the lightest SUV made by Porsche, which translates into agile handling.

The price stated for the Macan comes with four-year warranty and complimentary service and maintenance package. It includes all applicable duties excluding registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
