Toronto: Porsche completes the Macan series with a distinctly sporty model. The new Macan GTS launches with a powerful engine, performance-oriented chassis, characteristic design and enhanced equipment. The 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo engine delivers 375 hp and 383 lb.-ft. of torque. Combined with the newly adapted PDK dual-clutch transmission and the optional Sport Chrono package, the Macan GTS can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, three tenths faster than before. It has a top speed of 261 km/h.
A 2.9-litre V6 engine is at the heart of the sound experience. Its Central Turbo Layout, with two turbochargers arranged in the inner V of the engine, allows particularly direct responsiveness. The maximum torque of 383 lb.-ft. (plus 14 lb. – ft.) is available over a wide range from 1,750 to 5,000 rpm. Individual design with black accents.
The new Macan GTS also emphasizes its exceptional sporty status visually. The standard Sport Design package with new front and rear trim and striking side skirts lends the car a characteristic appearance. The front fascia and front section are characterized by black painted elements – a distinguishing feature of all Porsche GTS models. The 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. Chassis lowering by 25 millimetres, the 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels in satin-gloss black, the red brake calipers and the trim strips in high-gloss black also emphasize the high-performance appearance and high-quality materials such as Alcantara® on the seat centre panels, the centre console armrests and door panels as well as brushed aluminum make it possible to also see and feel the sporty and elegant characteristics of the Macan GTS in the interior.
The multifunction sports steering wheel with the steering wheel rim in smooth leather and shift paddles is standard, as are the sports seats, exclusive to the GTS, with eight-way adjustment and pronounced side bolsters for stable support during dynamic cornering. The GTS leather upholstery in Carmine Red or Chalk with additional Alcantara® features and colour accents, the BOSE® Surround Sound system and the new smartphone tray with inductive charging function are among the many personalization options.
The Park Assist including rear view camera and Surround View, a heated windscreen and ionizer also optionally increase safety and comfort. The new Macan GTS is now available for order with first deliveries expected in summer of 2020. Prices will start at $77,100 CAD MSRP.
