Porsche’s works on the Macan might have finally hit the right notes with its latest ‘S’ variant. While the previous iteration was not a bad-scorer and score nothing less than a good obedient SUV, this one comes with a meaner grunt and more power.

The Macan S is now equipped with a newly developed 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine. In a more technical tone, Porsche states that the turbocharger is now located in the inner V; which results in short exhaust gas paths between the combustion chambers and the turbocharger to ensure outstanding and immediate responsiveness. New mechanics allows the Macan S to reach 100kph in 5.1 seconds with a top speed of 254kph.

The car also comes with a freshly tuned chassis to have a sportier feel and complementing handling as well. The new chassis now features staggered tyres and Porsche Traction Management (PTM) four-wheel drive. The engineers at Stuttgart claims that the new light alloy design is more rigid and reduces unsprung mass, making the steering on the Porsche Macan more precise and improving ride comfort.

The new Porsche Communication Management (PCM), which now features a 10.9-inch full-HD touchscreen, is fully networked as standard and includes online navigation with real-time traffic information through “Here Cloud”, mobile phone connection, two audio interfaces and intelligent voice control. Other features onboard as standard include Porsche Connect Plus (with LTE phone module and SIM card reader), a Wi-Fi hotspot and an array of new Porsche Connect services.

Inside the cabin Porsche has derived a few elements from the 911, including the GT Sports Steering wheel that comes along with a Sports Response Button. However, these can be availed as a part of the optional Sports Chrono Package. For added comfort and convenience, it is possible to optionally include the new Traffic Jam Assist, a heated windshield and an ioniser which, in conjunction with the fine particulate air filter fitted as standard, improves the quality of the air inside the Porshce Macan S.
