Small SUV Provides Premium Driving Experience

The all-new Porsche Macan GTS starts with the popular Macan S, and then adds some specific interior and exterior finishes along with an upgraded engine to deliver a thrilling driving experience. Porsche engineers started with the basic 3.0-liter twin turbocharged V6 from the Macan S, added a few hardware upgrades and fine-tuned the calibration to up the performance to 360 horsepower. Porsche’s Traction Management system works in concert with the dual-clutch transmission to deliver power to the appropriate axle as needed. The result is a 0 to 60 miles per hour run in just 4.8 seconds on the way to a top speed of 159 mph. Feel the power behind the wheel for yourself by taking a test drive at Porsche of Tucson when it arrives next March.

Air Suspension Standard on Macan GTS
