The sports car heritage of the Macan is evident in many details of its design. The designers have endeavored to ensure the model's proportions and lines live up to this heritage. The result can be summarized in two words typical of a sports car: broad and low. The design embodies sportiness, dynamism and precision, together with elegance and lightweight construction.
Three models comprise the Macan product range at launch. The Macan S is equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 bi-turbo engine delivering 340 bhp (250 kW). It accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds (or 5.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package fitted).
