The all-new Macan, the first sports car in the compact SUV segment from Porsche, is available for order now with first units to be delivered in the second quarter of next year, the Porsche American Automobiles has announced.

"Featuring exceptional acceleration, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision, the Macan is set to rewrite the rulebook on outstanding sporting comfort and everyday usability," a spokesperson said.

The name Macan comes from the Indonesian word for tiger. The sporty DNA of the Macan as with all Porsche vehicles, is immediately recognisable in the design. The wrap-around bonnet and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporty elegance and powerful dynamics.

Many of the design elements have been taken from other Porsche sports cars and enhanced for the Macan, which comes in three models.

The Macan S is equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine delivering 340 hp and also features an active all-wheel drive with an electronically controlled, map-controlled multi-plate clutch. This all-wheel drive is fitted on all Macan models.

The Macan is equipped with the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) which transfers power as required and almost free of interruption in tractive force. This enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds (or 5.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package fitted).

The vehicle reaches a top speed of 254 km/h, and its New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) fuel consumption figures are between 9.0 and 8.7 litres/100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 emissions level of between 212 and 204 g/km.

The Macan S Diesel is the economical long-distance runner of the three Macan models. Its 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine achieves NEDC fuel consumption figures of between 6.3 and 6.1 litres/100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 value of between 164 and 159 g/km.
The Macan S Diesel accelerates from 0 to 100 km in 6.3 seconds (or 6.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono package fitted) thanks to its 258-hp engine, and achieves a top speed of 230 km/h.

As the top derivative in the Macan model line, the Macan Turbo is set to be the most powerful vehicle in the compact SUV segment. The 3.6-litre V6 biturbo engine, which is being used in a Porsche model for the very first time, achieves 400 hp and catapults the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. With the Sport Chrono package fitted, this speed can be reached in just 4.6 seconds.

Although the top speed is 266 km/h, the Macan Turbo delivers NEDC fuel consumption figures of between just 9.2 and 8.9 litres/100 km, which equates to a CO2 value of between 216 and 208 g/km.

The Macan is also being promoted as a nimble yet tenacious off-roader. The latest stage of evolution of the all-wheel drive -- known as Porsche Traction Management (PTM) -- has produced one of the world's most powerful drive systems.

The range of equipment fitted on the Macan as standard is extensive, and includes the all-wheel drive, PDK, multi-function sport steering wheel with shift paddles, large wheels, high-performance audio system and an electrically operated tailgate.

The Macan is the only vehicle in its segment with air suspension system, which comes as standard. The list of optional special equipment includes the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, which distributes varying levels of drive torque to the rear wheels and works in conjunction with an electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock.

Also coming as an option is the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, which continuously adjusts the headlight level in keeping with the traffic ahead and any oncoming traffic.

The basic retail prices in the GCC are as follows: Macan S Diesel - $67,800; Macan S - $68,930; and Macan Turbo $95,080.

I really like the looks of the Macan, and the price isn't too bad either.

Mini me cayenne. Overall very nice. Side CF body cladding looks aftermarket though IMO only. Interior best in class just like the cayenne. Wife likely to trade in her cayenne for the MACAN S
