The Porsche Macan was introduced to the market seven years ago and it’s safe to say that Porsche’s most accessible vehicle has aged gracefully. Some people may not like the Macan, or think it’s not a real Porsche. That’s until they get behind the wheel that is.
Handling with just the right amount of power in the 2021 Porsche Macan S
The Porsche Macan is everything one expects from a Porsche starting with the way the steering wheel feels in our hands. On the road, the Macan delivers exceptional handling, steering and agility, more so even than a Cayenne. You feel like you are in a small hatchback more than a small SUV when driving the Macan on a winding road, and no other small luxury SUV delivers the same level of engagement and driving pleasure.
The base Porsche Macan is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder, but buyers looking for that extra punch of power under their right foot will want to check out the 2021 Porsche Macan S. The S features a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 with 348 horsepower and 352 pound-feet of torque, enough to reach 100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds.
The 2021 Porsche Macan S isn’t just quick in a straight line, it’s also quicker when passing and when coming out of corners, enjoying its improved horsepower across the rev range. The accelerations are impressive, but never overwhelming or uncontrolled. In that sense, it delivers the right amount of performance for most buyers.
The Macan S offers up to 1,500 litres of total cargo space, and it can tow over 4,000 pounds which is rather unexpected. Inside, buyers will enjoy a large centre touchscreen with a smart layout for the centre console which puts all the important functions and controls within arm’s reach and easy to find and use.
The seats provide ample support both on the highway and when taking turns with gusto, and the rear seats will be more than accommodating for your young family. With its small dimensions and small turning radius, the Macan S is perfectly suited to the urban jungle as well.
The 2021 Porsche Macan S is for buyers who want typical Porsche performance and agility, but in a more practical and versatile format. It is the perfect example of how Porsche DNA can be applied to any type of vehicle and never be diluted.
