Porsche Macan Turbo Gets Faster with Performance Package

The Porsche Macan Turbo can now be had with even more power.

Sitting at the top of the compact SUV’s lineup, the Porsche Macan Turbo Performance Package increases the 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine’s output to 440 horsepower, 40 ponies more than the standard Macan Turbo, while torque jumps 36 pound-feet to 442. That means the SUV accelerates to 60 mph from a standstill 0.2 seconds faster, clocking in at 4.2 seconds [0-100 km/h at 4.4 seconds]. Top track speed is also increased by 5 mph to 169 mph [272 km/h].

But that’s not all, as the package also outfits the Macan Turbo with a newly developed brake system, a lowered sport chassis, the Sport Chrono Package and a sport exhaust system as standard. In addition, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) with air suspension is available at the push of a button. According to the German automaker, the system has also been optimally tuned to the vehicle, lowering it by 10 mm.
