2020 Porsche Macan Review: Redesigned & Performance
Here is a review of the 2020 Porsche Macan, as the successor of the best-selling car from Porsche, the latest generation of the Macan SUV brings several changes and improvements, from design to engineering. this latest generation comes with a more fuel-efficient engine, of course.
The Macan was unveiled in the world premiere at the Los Angeles salon in 2013 and has exceeded Porsche’s expectations in recent years. In the first four production years, more than 350,000 copies were sold. It is significant that Porsche did not choose America to reveal the facelift of this model, but for the Shanghai motor show. Logically also: this small SUV sells particularly well in China, where it has not only helped the brand to conquer new customers, but also to embed itself in a market in full development.
2020 Porsche Macan Changes
Of course, the new Macan largely revisits its appearance: the new front bumper is interrupted by larger air intakes. Over the entire width of the rear, a light strip runs as we saw it on the Panamera and the Cayenne. In the interior, the German has mainly reworked his infotainment system: the old 7-inch screen began to look somewhat “old-fashioned” – that is, the people of Porsche itself – and was therefore replaced in this new version by a 10.9-inch touchscreen.
Under the bonnet is the past for the diesel and there are only petrol engines. Initially, the Macan is available in two variants, the normal and the S. The first is driven by a 2.0-turbocharger cylinder of 245 hp (at 5,000 to 6,750 o / m) and 370 Nm (at 1,600 to 4,500 o / m). This block has been picked from the organs bank of the VW group and has been completely revised with only one goal in mind: to reduce emissions.
A lot of more thorough adjustments have been made to the V6 engine: the three-liter engine was completely redesigned. The numbers, therefore, improve 354 hp, compared to 340 hp in the old model.
The Macan remains sovereignly carried on the road – like a real Porsche. Even more, this SUV became even more efficient and at the same time more comfortable. Especially the overall balance makes an impression. That simply remains inimitable, with reactions in the Sport mode that are reminiscent of those of a rear wheel drive. In short, the 2020 Porsche Macan remains a reference in this area, also with regard to the accuracy of its handlebar or the bite force of the brakes. You do not find them more coherent than this.
While the new 2020 Porsche Macan is undergoing a number of technological and aesthetic improvements, it wants to meet the new Euro 6d Temp emission standards in the first place. But cleaner or not, it continues to offer top-notch performance, and dynamically the new Macan and Macan S are particularly efficient. The small SUV from Porsche remains without doubt one of the references of the segment.
