2020 Porsche Macan Turbo Debuts With 434 HP 2.9L Turbo V6

After the electric Taycan sports sedan, it’s easy to overlook what else Porsche brought to Frankfurt this year, but the updated Macan Turbo definitely deserves our attention.

For the 2020MY, the Macan Turbo has gained a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6, which replaces the old 3.6-liter unit. Despite its significantly smaller displacement, it puts out 434 HP (440 PS) and 405 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque, or 10 percent more (+40 HP) than the outgoing model.

It’s basically the same engine you’ll find in the Panamera and Cayenne, and its turbochargers are placed within the V angle for a sharper response. Paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, it’ll send the new Macan Turbo to 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill in 4.3 seconds, 0.3 of a second faster than the old model, and all the way up to 167 mph (269 km/h).

The new Macan Turbo isn’t just faster than before, but it’s also more efficient, as fuel economy is rated between 23.5 and 24.8 mpg UK, (11.4-12.0 lt/100 km, 20.6-19.6 mpg US) per the WLTP cycle.

The range-topping Macan features LED headlights with the Porsche’s Dynamic Light System, 20-inch alloy wheels and surface-coated high-performance brakes with white calipers as standard, while an adjustable air suspension with newly tuned dampers, Porsche Torque Vectoring and carbon ceramic brakes are optional.

The cabin features 18-way adjustable sports seats dressed in leather, an Alcantara roof lining combined and brushed aluminum trim, as well as a 10.9-inch full-HD infotainment system with connected features paired to a 14-speaker Bose audio system.

Optional features include a heated GT sports steering wheel, an LTE telephone module, an ioniser for better air quality in the cabin and Porsche’s latest traffic jam assistant, which offers an automated driving mode for speeds up to 37 mph (60 km/h).
