The New Porsche Macan GTS Revealed
The Macan is set to arrive in early 2020.
Porsche have unveiled their Macan GTS in line with it’s Australian release in the first quarter of 2020. Excitingly it’s got plenty of new bits to gawk at.
Not only does the GTS return looking sleeker than before, but it also comes with a little more oomph, according to Porsche. That’s because the manufacturer has managed to squeeze a bit more horsepower and torque out of the GTS’s already peppy engine.
Referred by Porsche as its “sportiest” Macan, the GTS fits squarely between the vehicle’s three different trim options, the S and the top-of-the-line Turbo. Though it still features a twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6, its powertrain has been spruced up a bit for the 2020 model year. The car now churns out 280kW and 520Nm of torque, increases of 15kW and 20Nm of torque over the 2017 edition. While that may not sound like much, it means the SUV can go from 0-to-100km/h in just 4.7 seconds. Add the optional Sports Chrono package and the GTS can reach 100km/h in 4.5 seconds. It also has a top speed of 261km/h, which is respectable for an SUV.
But while the major changes may be under the hood, that’s not all that’s new about the returning GTS. The crossover sports a sleeker design as well, with black accents, black-tinted headlights and taillights, satin black 20-inch RS Spyder design wheels, and red brake calipers. The interior has been redone with Alcantra trim throughout, brushed aluminium accents, a multifunction sport steering wheel and GTS-exclusive eight-way adjustable sport seats.
Of course, these changes come at a price with the new GTS starting at $109,700.
