The PCM system in the Macan is more useful – it now provides real-time traffic updates.
In crawling traffic up to 65km/h, there is a semi- autonomous steering function that helps you stay in your lane.
Systems such as these are precisely what buyers are looking for in a Porsche right? Well, times have changed, but Porsche still stands for an outstanding driving experience.
Indeed, despite the inclusion of these “novelty” items, the Macan has become an even better driving instrument than before.
The Macan’s behaviour on the serpentine roads of Mallorca was fabulous. Despite its taller stance compared to actual sports cars, it could be flung around with such abandon and enjoyment.
I felt like the handling of older Macan S had been transferred to the base Macan, and the agility of the previous Macan Turbo has been conferred on the new Macan S.
Responsible for the enhanced dynamics of the new Macan S are the bigger wheels and tyres, as well as the lighter and stronger suspension components.
The Macan S is powered by new a turbocharged 3-litre V6 that delivers 349hp and 480Nm, or 14hp and 20Nm more than the previous model.
