Porsche Macan Gets Base Four-Cylinder Model

Porsche is spreading more turbocharged engines into its lineup with a new base Macan model. 

Using a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine, it produces 252 horsepower an 273 lb-ft of torque.

A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will handle the shifting, while a run from zero to 62 mph will take this SUV 6.7 seconds. The optional Sport Chrono-Package shave that time by 0.2 seconds.

The new Macan model made its official debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show. It will be priced from $48,550.
