2020 Macan Photos
STUTTGART, Germany — The 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo proves to be incredibly surefooted when hammered through the treelined switchbacks around Stuttgart. With its upgraded suspension, now-standard 20-inch wheels and Porsche’s Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system, Macan Turbo's handling greatly exceeds anything else labeled SUV. In reality, it can put a fair share of sports cars under pressure. Among its various updates, the 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo gets a new 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 good for 434 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. Crucially, it's a far more engaging engine than the powerful, yet soulless turbo V6 found in the otherwise invigorating Macan S. Having nearly 100 extra horses doesn't hurt, either. Both engines use a “Hot V” turbo placement with the turbocharger placed inside the cylinders' V. This allows a much shorter path for the exhaust gases to reach the turbo, consequently quickening response. In the 2.9-liter Turbo, capital "T," this means a 37% increase in power with the same amount of torque available over a larger rpm range. All its power goes through a retuned seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. Its Sport mode offers quicker shift times than before, helping the Turbo sprint from 0 to 60 in a very rapid 4.3 seconds. You can shave off an additional 0.2 second by ticking the Sport Chrono options box and utilizing Launch Control. Either way, the new Turbo is 0.3 second faster than last year's model and will max out 3-mph faster at 167 mph. Impressive stats for the small SUV, and it all comes attached to a now-standard Sport Exhaust System that helps add even more welcome character to the Turbo experience. Of course, all of that power is of no use without the matching power to stop it. To that end, the front rotors measure in at 390 millimeters (15.3 inches), an increase of 30 millimeters, and all four corners get Porsche’s Surface Coated Brakes (PSCB). Featuring a tungsten carbide coating, the rotors cut brake dust nearly in half while increasing both braking performance and rotor life span. To underline PSCB's brake-dust-reducing capabilities, Porsche audaciously painted the calipers white. Porsche's Ceramic Composite Brakes are still on the options list. Upgrades were also made to the Turbo's suspension. The standard adaptive steel dampers were revised, and like those on the Macan S, the control arms are now made of aluminum instead of steel, and they have a unique forked design that spreads over and around the driveshafts, creating a more direct connection with the front upright. According to Porsche, this design is stiffer and 3.3 pounds lighter than before. This reduction in unsprung mass eases the amount of work the damper has to do, increasing grip and giving the driver more precise feedback. Available chassis upgrades include an optional adaptive and height-adjustable air suspension and Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus. Trail brake the Macan into a tight corner carrying a bit of speed to transfer weight onto the nose, feel it rotate around you, then plant your foot to rocket off to …
