What the Critics Say

“The ride is wonderfully smooth and carefully controlled, and it’s rare for a jolt from the road to make its way up through the cabin. The Macan’s tenacious attitude in corners makes it feel stable and planted.” – Car and Driver

“No matter how you slice it, the Macan offers an attractive design inside and out, exceptional build quality and ergonomics, and the handling characteristics you’d expect from a company responsible for the 911.” – Autotrader

What’s New for 2021

Although virtually unchanged for 2021, there is one exciting addition to the Porsche Macan lineup for the new model year. The New Macan GTS offers another dose of adrenaline to this already impressive SUV. These models are powered by a potent 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that delivers 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The GTS is positioned between the Macan S and Macan Turbo, expanding the list of options for Porsche Macan buyers.
