2. 2015 Porsche Macan
Based on the same platform as the Audi Q5, Porsche unveiled its Macan compact crossover in Californ-i-a this week. The car comes with a choice of two turbocharged V6 engines: a 3.0-liter unit with 340 hp or a 3.6-liter version with 400.
All-wheel drive is standard as is a Porsche seven-speed PDK transmission. There will be a diesel version offered in other markets, but North America is restricted to the two gas engine choices for now. Porsche also started small with the Cayenne line and inflated its drivetrain choices after the vehicle took off. It wouldn’t come as any surprise if the same thing happened here.
