Macan spec sheet leak from China gives us horsepower, torque, and curb weight figures
The Macan debut is coming up in just over a week but thanks to a Chinese spec sheet leak we already have the specifications. The Macan S and Macan Turbo both have twin turbo V6 direct injected gasoline powerplants. The Macan S engine is at 3.0 liters with 340 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque. The Macan Turbo V6 displaces 3.6 liters and has 400 horsepower with 405 pound-feet of torque. There is also a Macan S diesel model with 258 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque.
The Macan S weighs in at 4250 pounds. The Turbo model is 42 pounds heavier at 4292 pounds. Not exactly a featherweight but significantly lighter than the Cayenne. The Macan Turbo will not give up much to the Cayenne Turbo despite the raw power difference.
The Macan S looks to be an excellent value especially considering Porsche gets 420 horsepower out of the 3.0 liter V6 powerplant in the Panamera S. Is the extra displacement worth the cost? We will know when we have the US MSRP information from the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
