The Land Rover Discovery offers two engines in its catalog, that is to say 4 cylinders turbocharged, one of 237 horsepower and the other, on which we will focus, of 286 horsepower. The 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are part of the package. One of the peculiarities of Land Rover vehicles is undoubtedly their off-road capabilities.
With the Land Rover's Terrain Response system, it is possible to choose one of 5 driving modes to adapt your driving to the type of roadway: Normal, Grass, Gravel and snow, Mud and ruts and Sand. Also worth mentioning is Hill Descent Control, Hill Descent Brake Release Control and Off-Road Cruise Control. Other driver assistance technologies such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Park Assist and Autonomous Emergency Braking System.
The Macan Turbo hides under its hood a 3.0-liter V6 Biturbo engine with an output of 434 horsepower. The 7-speed PDK with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters and all-wheel drive complete the package. When it comes to its off-road capabilities, it has absolutely nothing to envy its competitor, with its steel coil spring suspension, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the OFFROAD button that allows you to switch to all mode -terrain, and Porsche Hill Control (PHC) which keeps your speed constant when going downhill. These are just a small part of the countless features you'll find on the Macan Turbo. To discover them all and especially to try them out, come to the Porsche Quebec center, and you will see that in terms of off-road driving, technologies and comfort, the Macan Turbo amply deserves the 1st step of the podium.
