The Porsche Macan S Diesel is a fantastic balance of power and economy, let us start with the engine. The 3.0L V6 turbo diesel produces 255bhp delivering sports car performance figures of 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds and 142mph flat out. Even more impressive is the colossal 580Nm of torque available from so low in the rev range, 1500rpm in fact, making overtakes on even the bumpiest B-road effortless. All this power and yet the S Diesel still achieves an economy figure of 46.3mpg making it a practical comfortable cruiser.
As we have come to expect from this German brand reliability, styling and cabin quality are nothing short of excellent. The S Diesel then delivers all the versatility, style and reliability of a Sports SUV from Porsche without the price tag or the running costs of some of its more performance orientated cousins in the range.
Following in the footsteps of the Cayenne the Porsche Macan had some big boots to fill and Porsche has delivered with an absolute Swiss Army Knife of a car. The adaptive suspension is a thing to behold allowing for a tight direct driving experience on the road, whilst giving you the ride height and articulation needed for those off-road excursions. As you would expect from Porsche superb cabin quality, trade mark reliability and understated attractive styling are included as standard. The driving position is just right, sitting low enough in the cabin to feel sporty and yet high enough over the road to give that commanding driving position. The Sports SUV market is a competitive one and all about striking a perfect balance. The Porsche Macan makes this task seem effortless and offers a Sports SUV for the family, without compromise.
