New for 2018

Porsche has said there will be no major changes or updates to the 2017 Macan GTS.


Engine, transmission and performance

The Macan GTS is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 engine producing 360 horsepower and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. While not the most powerful Macan, the GTS is the most well-balanced, with a dynamic appeal that goes beyond speed. In other words, the Macan GTS delivers ride and handling dynamics worthy of Porsche’s badge, despite being an SUV with the engine in front of the driver rather than behind the seats. The Macan GTS is equipped with adaptive dampers, stiff anti-roll bars and large front disc brakes from the Macan Turbo. Optional torque vectoring adds composure to the nonflappable chassis. Sophisticated enough to drive comfortably every day while sipping winding roads.
