With a re-engineered chassis and reinforced brakes, the Macan GTS gets 20 hp more than the Macan S. A sportier tuning of the PASM chassis that is lowered by 15 millimeters, along with 20-inch wheels in RS Spyder design with matt black paint finish and mixed tyres are features of the GTS equipment. Also in keeping with the style are the standard GTS sport seats with Alcantara centre panels, additional Alcantara trim in the interior as well as a full-sounding sports exhaust system. The Macan GTS features the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM). Together with the optional Connect Plus module, the high-quality multi-touch monitor offers online navigation with real-time traffic information and smartphone integration via CarPlay. A BOSE sound system completes the Macan GTS’ top-notch offerings.
