Name

The Macan was originally known by its code name Cajun, a portmanteau of Cayenne Junior.  On February 16, 2012 Porsche announced the final name for the car to be Macan. The word Macan was taken from the Bahasa Indonesia meaning Tiger.

Development

Macan Turbo

Initially announced in November 2010 as a development project,  and formally announced by Porsche in March 2011, the Macan was formally launched at both the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show  and the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show,  with European sales commencing in spring 2014.

The Macan is produced alongside the Panamera and the Cayenne in Leipzig, Germany in a newly extended factory.  The Macan compact crossover SUV offers a more compact body than the Cayenne midsize crossover SUV. The Macan is also intended to be sportier than the Cayenne; for instance the Macan has a standard 7-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox which is more responsive while the Cayenne has an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission for smoother shifts.

The Porsche Macan shares its platform with the Audi Q5.   The wheelbase and suspension configuration are based on and heavily modified from the Audi, but the engine, transfercase, suspension tuning, interior and exterior are unique to Porsche for the Macan. It is also 1.7 inches (43 mm) longer and 1.4 inches (36 mm) wider than a Q5.

Drivetrain and performance

At launch, three different models and engines were available, all being V6 format:  a 3.0-litre Macan S with 340 PS (250 kW; 335 bhp), a 3.6-litre Macan Turbo with 400 PS (294 kW; 395 bhp) and a 3.0-litre 258 PS (190 kW; 254 bhp) Diesel, with a CO2 emissions of 159 g/km. The Macan GTS was announced in October 2015 to fit into the gap between the Macan S and Macan Turbo.

All Macans feature a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, with several options available including air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).

Porsche subsequently released a base Macan for select Asian markets and the United Kingdom. Using a reworked version of the Volkswagen Group’s 2.0-litre inline-four engine used in multiple applications such as the Audi Q5, the Macan is the first Porsche to be powered by four cylinders since the Porsche 968. This engine became offered globally for the Macan’s 2017 model year following an announcement in March 2016. A 204 PS (150 kW; 201 bhp) 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel is due to join the range at a later date.
