Porsche’s oil burner variant is a fairly irresistible redo of Audi’s architecture. Aside from the compact size, there is no obvious visual connection to the Q5. Porsche’s designers went to work inside and out. The Macan S Diesel is the economical long-distance runner of the three Macan models. Its 3.0-litre, six-cylinder V-engine has tons of torque and lots of range.
The 2022 GTS get the same engine that powered last year's Turbo model, a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 rated for 434 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque, which amount to increases of 59 horses and 22 lb-ft over the previous GTS. All Macans also come standard with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, which combine to push the GTS into the "genuinely fun" category of athleticism and should help it mimic the Turbo's 3.5-second sprint to 60 mph.
The 2023 Porsche Macan T brings touring style to the Macan. This new model sits between the base Macan and the midlevel S. Positioned between the base Macan and the midrange Macan S, the Macan T packs the same 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in the entry-level model, delivering 261 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque through a standard seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. The German automaker says the powertrain is good for a 5.8-second 0-to-60-mph dash and a top speed of 144 mph. Unsurprisingly, those are the same factory performance estimates as the standard Macan when fitted with the optional Sport Chrono Package that comes standard on this T.
The top model in the Porsche Macan lineup is the Macan Turbo. It launched in 2016 as the most powerful vehicle in the competitive compact SUV segment and its 3.6 liter twin-turbo V6 engine is a real gem. Good for 395 bhp @ 6000 rpm and torque of 406 ft lbs @ 1350 rpm, it helps the Macan Turbo accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.50 seconds (with the Sport Chrono package fitted) on its way to a top speed of 165 mph.
Porsche introduced yet another facelift for the Macan lineup for the 2022 model year. The range got more power under the hood, a refreshed design, and an improved interior. The base turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder now makes 261 horsepower. It is a newly developed, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that helps hustle the base Macan from 0 - 60 mph in just 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 144 mph. The redesign on the outside gives the base 2022 Macan a tighter look.
The Macan S was part of the initial Macan launch and it was equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo engine delivering 335 hp and also features an active all-wheel-drive system with an electronically controlled, map-controlled multi-plate clutch. This AWD system is fitted on all Macan models. A seven-speed double-clutch transmission is the only transmission on offer.

The Macan has important upgrades for the 2019 model, featuring new and improved front lights with LED headlights as standard and three-dimensional LED lights in the rear. The new model features a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine generating 348 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. The new and more powerful engine marks an increase in both horsepower and torque over the prior Macan S models. 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono and top speed is 157 mph.

The GTS returned to the lineup for 2020 after a year off. Its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 makes 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Quickness is important in a crossover with sporting intentions, but we love the way the GTS handles and acts like a true sportscar. Apple CarPlay, available as part of the Premium package or as a standalone option, gains wireless connectivity, while wireless device charging has been added to the designated Smartphone Compartment option.
After a one-year hiatus, Porsche brings us a Macan Turbo with more power, more speed, and more standard equipment. It swapped its twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V-6 for a new twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 shared with versions of the larger Cayenne SUV and the Panamera. Porsche claims that it's enough to punt the all-wheel-drive Macan Turbo to 60 mph 0.3 second quicker than before. This is the top of the Macan lineup heap.
Porsche subsequently released a base Macan for select Asian markets and the United Kingdom. Using a reworked version of the Volkswagen Group's 2.0-litre inline-four EA888 Gen 3 engine used in multiple applications such as the Audi Q5. This engine became offered globally for the Macan's 2017 model year following an announcement in March 2016
For the 2017 model year, Porsche added the Macan GTS trim to the lineup. The new Macan GTS gets a higher-output version of the twin-turbo V-6 that powers the S model. It also gets tweaked performance-oriented chassis, unique design elements and additional standard equipment. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine delivers 355 bhp @ 6000 rpm and 369 ft lbs of torque from 1650 rpm. Combined with the newly adapted PDK dual-clutch transmission, the Macan GTS can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.
In July 2018, Porsche unveiled a new facelift for the Macan range in Shanghai. The production started the following month and the Europeans saw it at the Paris Motor Show in September. The 2019 Porsche Macan update includes refreshed exterior styling that includes updated front and rear bumpers, new taillamps that span the width of the liftgate, and new wheel designs. The base Macan receives a 248-hp turbocharged four-cylinder.
The top model in the Porsche Macan lineup is the Macan Turbo and in 2017 Porsche made it extra special by offering a Performance Package add on. After the performance enhancement, the twin-turbocharged, 3.6-litre V6 engine delivers 324 kW (440 hp; combined fuel consumption 9.7–9.4 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 224–217 g/km). With 30 kW (40 hp) more than the Macan Turbo, this figure places this variant firmly in the top spot in this model line. The car now accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds
