Drive Experience Of 2023 Porsche Macan
Macan gets along a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It is upgradable to the twin-turbo V-6, which comes as a standard in the S and GTS models. The standard engine takes 5.0 seconds to accelerate from zero to sixty mph. On the other hand, twin-turbo does the same in just 3.8 seconds. It provides a pleasurable driving experience with a refined twin-turbo engine. Macan provides a Sporty feel that satisfies all the features of an SUV. The drive is smooth with good handling, making it a great package overall.
Talking about the mileage, the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine has a fuel efficiency of 19 mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway. In comparison, the optional 2.9-liter V-6 engine offers a mileage of 17mpg on the city roads and 23mpg on the highways. It has one of the best mileage in the segment of sports SUVs.
Interiors And Features Of The New Macan
Macan provides a basic interior, which feels like a standard cabin that is not up to the mark. The room gets a Porsche feel by embedding the logo on the seats. All the seats are wrapped in black leather, which seems very ordinary. It doesn’t feel like a premium cabin. The dashboard gets a huge touchscreen infotainment system that provides all the high-tech features. However, these features will also cost you some extra amount. You will get the feature of Apple CarPlay but without the Android Auto.
The center console gets the gear lever right in the middle along with other controls. The steering wheel feels sporty with all the knobs and switches on it. Along with some important features, Macan misses out on a lot. After all, it’s a Porsche and delivers quality SUVs with impressive specifications. You can’t ignore the brand quality and reliability in any case. With the not-so-premium interiors, Macan is still one of the best SUVs in the high-price segment of cars.
Macan comes with a starting price of $58,950, which is quite affordable for a Porsche lover. The classic looks and promising performance of the 2023 Porsche Macan makes this car the best. This was all about the new Macan. For more such articles, keep visiting DaxStreet.
