New Porsche Macan S Diesel review photo gallery
While the basic architecture of the Audi Q5 and Macan is similar, the way they look and drive is entirely different, says Porsche.
The Macan can hit 100kph in a quick 6.3sec.
The diesel Porsche Macan SUV produces 255bhp alongside a whopping 59kgm of torque from just 1,750rpm.
It’s the Macan's smoothness and potency of power delivery that will most likely leave the biggest impression.
The bevy of controls may look confusing but are easy to get used to.
The seven-speed PDK has been tuned to provide the Macan S Diesel with far sharper responses than a Q5.
The emphasis with the Macan, inside as well as out, is all about delivering as sporting a driving experience as possible.
Typically Porsche cabin, with a host of sporty elements.
There's decent space at the back; it's smaller than the Cayenne, remember.
Under the hood sit three engines - a 400bhp motor in the Turbo, a petrol V6 in the Macan S, and the 'less' powerful Diesel S.
The Macan won’t come cheap though, but it will be priced lower than a Cayenne.
