Report: Porsche Macan to receive a turbocharged four-cylinder

As we learned in February, Porsche’s best selling variety of their Cayenne SUV is the diesel, so it seems completely logical that Porsche will now be offering 2.0-liter four cylinder turbocharged gasoline and diesel options for their smaller Macan SUV. The entry level gas version offers 280bhp along with the existing 254bhp V6 diesel and 335bhp gas powered turbo six. Built in Porsche’s Leipzig plant, the Macan can currently be produced at a rate of 50,000 per year, but for MY 2015, this number is expected to increase.

The entry level Macan is expected to compete with the higher end Range Rover Evoque and offers a similar variety of off road options as seen in the Cayenne. For ‘15, Porsche say they have quickened up the steering response by 10% and much of the car is configured similar to the Audi Q5, with the engine mounted in front of the front axle, and the car gets the same bulkhead and floor. Porsche are quick to point out though that over ⅔ of the components have been replaced or changed from the Audi.
