Porsche has pulled back the covers off its new Macan GTS that packs a powerful engine, performance-oriented chassis and enhanced equipment.
Numbers first. The Macan GTS employs a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that gushes 280 kW and 519 Nm of torque. It features a newly adapted PDK dual-clutch transmission.
Porsche claims the Macan GTS requires 4.7 seconds to hurdle from a standstill to 100 km/h or to the same speed in 4.5 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package, and on to top track speed of 260 km/h.
The new Porsche Macan GTS comes with a standard adaptive air suspension that can lower the suspension of the model by 10 mm.
It runs on standard 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels.
The exterior is complemented by standard Sport Design package that adds new front and rear trim and striking side skirts. The front fascia is characterized by black painted elements – a distinguishing feature of all Porsche GTS models.
There are LED headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and the three-dimensional rear lights with LED light bar are also darkened. The LED headlights can be optionally ordered in black with PDLS Plus. The rear end also gains black accents including a diffuser and the tailpipes of the standard sport exhaust system.
Inside, the Macan GTS gets Alcantara on the seat centre panels, the centre console armrests and door panels as well as brushed aluminium.
There is a multifunction sport steering wheel with the steering wheel rim in smooth leather is standard, as are the sport seats, exclusive to the GTS.
The optional GTS interior package in leather with Carmine Red or Chalk stitching plus additional Alcantara® features, the BOSE® Surround Sound system, and the new smartphone tray with inductive charging function are among the many personalization options. Park Assist including Surround View, a heated windshield, and ionizer are available as optional equipment to improve comfort.
The new 2020 model year Macan GTS is expected to arrive at US dealerships in summer 2020.
