Porsche Macan enhanced with new features, prices start from RM455,000

The latest version of the Porsche Macan is now available with prices starting from RM455,000 (excluding insurance and roadtax), inclusive of a 4-year warranty and free maintenance package that includes parts and labour. If you use the 360 Financing option offered by Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), monthly repayments can be from RM5,700 (terms and conditions apply).

This Macan comes with a 2-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with improved combustion chamber geometry. It delivers 252 bhp/370 Nm which, in combination with the 7-gear PDK dual-clutch gearbox, allows the compact SUV to go from 0 to 100 km/h in a claimed 6.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 225 km/h.

The new features cover design, comfort, connectivity and driving dynamics include the three-dimensional LED light panel at the rear and the new fully interconnected Porsche communication management system with 10.9-inch touchscreen inside the vehicle.

New options
An expanded range of options with enhanced assist systems is available to choose from. The optional GT sports steering wheel echoes the style of the 911. A mode switch integrated into the steering wheel – including sport response button – is part of the optional sport chrono package that can be fitted in the Macan. Porsche has extended the list of options designed to enhance convenience, which now includes a heated windscreen and an air ioniser that – together with the fine particulate air filter (fitted as standard) – improves the quality of the air inside the vehicle.

The vehicle dynamics of the Macan remain its core feature. The improved chassis increases comfort and makes the Macan even more enjoyable to drive, it is claimed. As is typical for a sportscar, it comes with mixed-size tyres, enabling the driver to take full advantage of the benefits of the intelligent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system and adopt a dynamic driving style.

Newly developed tyres with improved performance characteristics allow for even better lateral dynamics. The wheel diameters range from 18 inches as standard to an optional 21 inches.
