2017 Porsche Macan – Engine and Efficiency:

First off, it has a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with four cylinders producing a maximum power output of 252 hp from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm and 273-pound feet torque from 1,600 to 4,500 rpm. Just like the other Macan models, the dual clutch system can be equipped with this one as well with the Sports Chrono package being optional. The amazing launch control and that optional package avail the Macan 2017 to go from 0 to 60 in only 6.1 seconds. It has a top speed of 142 mph. Having a smaller engine, this one has 18% more efficiency than the base model and the Macan S model. It has 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The ride is smooth and powerful because of the clutch. And with all of that torque coming at a reasonable rpm, there is a lot of room for a little lag.

It has a combined fuel economy of 22 mpg and it’s rated more budget friendly than that of Macan S. The Macan S has a fuel economy of 19 mpg, so there’s the difference. Even though just a little, it’s there.
