Since its 2014 debut, the Porsche Macan has consistently ranked at the top of the luxury compact SUV segment. As we move into 2020, Porsche promises to keep this model in the winner’s circle with an impressive redesign. Join us as we unwrap the 2020 Porsche Macan in Colorado Springs, CO for a look at all this luxury SUV brings to the table.
The 2020 Porsche Macan borrows some styling elements from the 911, including revised intakes, bumpers and side vents. The result is a sportier, more aggressive Macan. The model also gets a standard four-point LED headlight setup, which drivers can upgrade to the PDLS Plus dynamic lighting system. The 2020 Macan now offers new 20-inch and 21-inch wheel designs as well.
Performance and Feature Offerings of the 2020 Porsche Macan
The base model 2020 Macan features a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which comes through with 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. The new 3.6L V6 engine standard on the Macan S is set to deliver 354 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. That’s about 15 horsepower and 15 lb-ft more than the outgoing Macan S.
Between the new Macan and the Macan S, either model sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. With the addition of the Sport Chrono package, the Macan clocks in at just 4.9 seconds. Active all-wheel drive is standard, as is the 7-speed PDK automatic transmission.
With seating for up to 5 and a maximum cargo capacity of 52.9 cubic feet, the Macan offers a blend of convenience and efficiency. Drivers enjoy a luxury-grade interior that lives up to Porsche’s reputation for upscale accommodations. The new 10.9-inch touchscreen display spans 4 inches longer than the previous version. Porsche also does some cleanup with a simplified center stack thanks to the Porsche Communication Management system (PCM), which offers more control over voice commands and online navigation.
