Porsche Macan S 2019 pricing and specs confirmed


Porsche Cars Australia has released pricing for the second variant in its updated Macan medium SUV range, the S, which will arrive in Q1 2019 at $97,500 plus on-road costs.

The entry-level Macan was made available for order in October, priced at $81,400, however details regarding the higher-spec GTS and Turbo variants are still unknown.

While the standard Macan makes use of a 185kW/370Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, the Macan S ups the ante to 260kW/480Nm with its 3.0-litre turbo-petrol V6 powerplant.

Porsche engineers squeezed an extra 10kW/20Nm out of its carry-over V6 engine for the update, allowing it to sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.1 seconds, 0.1s quicker than before.

The Macan S also benefits from the range-wide facelift which sees new LED tail-lights, the overhauled 'Porsche Communication Management' (PCM) system and a larger 10.9-inch touchscreen display.

Chassis dynamics have been adjusted for improved ride comfort, and ‘newly tuned’ sway bars are on-board for more neutral handling, according to Porsche.

Braking is also improved with the front rotors upped in size by 10mm to 360mm, new brake pads, and a lighter pedal for more precise feel.

Porsche will also offer an optional 'Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake' (PCCB) package, a GT sports steering wheel from the 911 sports car, a heated windshield and an ioniser for improved cabin air quality.
