New Porsche Macan 2019 review

Porsche says that the extra performance is thanks to a revised turbocharger layout. The German manufacturer has chosen to mount a twin-scroll turbo between the cylinder banks of the Macan’s V6 engine. As a result, the exhaust gases have less distance to travel, which Porsche says increases responsiveness and power.

The Macan S also receives a host of chassis upgrades including lightened spring forks, staggered tyre widths, new brakes, updated anti-roll bars, new height-adjustable air suspension and Porsche’s active damper control system. Torque-vectoring differentials are available as an optional extra.

As standard, the Macan S comes with a LED headlights, a 10.9-inch infotainment system and a WiFi hotspot.

Optional extras include a sports steering wheel (borrowed from the 911), traffic jam assist, a heated front windscreen and an ioniser and particulate filter which will supposedly improve the quality of the air inside the cabin.
