The New 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo Packs 434-Horsepower

Porsche’s compact new Macan SUV gains the coveted Turbo badge and nothing less than 434-horsepower

A Porsche with a “Turbo” badge always stands for power and performance. In typical Porsche fashion, when a new generation of a vehicle is introduced, trims are introduced one after the other. This time, it’s the Porsche Macan Turbo’s turn.

Powering the new 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo is the now well-known 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine. It offers 434-horsepower and a generous allowance of torque in the form of 406 lb.-ft. between 1,800 and 5,600 rpm. The transmission at work is none other than the 7-speed PDK dual-clutch gearbox mated to Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive.

This is the same engine found in the new Porsche Cayenne S which, with the Sport Chrono package, reaches 100km/h in 4.9 seconds. The Macan Turbo, which tips the scale at nearly 100kg less, hits the same mark with the Sport Chrono package in 4.3 seconds. Like the heavier Cayenne S however, we’re convinced it will feel far faster.

As Porsche never cuts corners, the Porsche Macan Turbo will feature the powerful Porsche Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB) sitting behind 20-inch Macan Turbo wheels as standard features. Options will include the likes of a height-adjustable air suspension, Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) and the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB).

Pricing for the new 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo starts at $94,200 ($100 more than the Porsche Cayenne S) and will arrive in Canada at the end of 2019.
