Porsche Launches Macan Microsite

In the lead-up to the debut of the Porsche Macan at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2013, Porsche has officially revealed the micro-site for its entry-level SUV.

Included in the interactive site are numerous photos of the Porsche Macan. Most importantly, it features a selection of recent news items about the Macan which we expect to be frequently updated on the lead up to the official release. Consequently, this site is definitely one to keep your eyes glued to for the coming weeks!

At launch, the Porsche Macan Turbo will feature a top of the range 3.6 litre V6 turbocharged engine with 400 hp whereas its diesel alternative, the Porsche Macan S will get a supercharged 335 hp and 339-lb 3.0 litre V6 whilst the Diesel S will feature a 254 hp and 428 lb-ft turbocharged engine. A choice of either a standard six-speed manual or optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox will be made available, steering is electro-mechanical. It seems that those wanting a four-cylinder engine will have to wait for a little while after the official release!

From a design perspective, the front bonnet looks interesting with a clamshell designed to supply much needed air to the front-mounted engine. The Porsche Macan is 70 mm longer, 44 mm wider and 29 mm lower than the Audi Q5. Porsche will be hoping that they have a more attractive prospect than the 5-year old Audi Q5, it certainly looks promising!
