The Porsche 718 isn’t the only one getting a four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

The German automaker has unveiled a new four-cylinder Macan at the 2016 New York Auto Show, sporting a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Paired to the powerplant is a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, helping bring the 2017 Porsche Macan to 62 mph from a standstill in 6.7 seconds. Adding the optional Sport Chrono Package takes another 0.2 seconds off that acceleration time.

    The manufacturer’s are using four-cylinder turbocharged engines to increase fuel economy. But personally, I prefer the Porsche flat-6 engines and the V-8’s–they’re much smoother running!
