Porsche prices facelifted Macan S from $97,500 BOCs

Mid-life update adds $2000 to price of Porsche Macan S mid-size SUV due in Q1 2019

11 Dec 2018

PORSCHE Cars Australia (PCA) has confirmed its facelifted Macan S mid-size SUV will enter showrooms in the first quarter next year with a new turbocharged V6 engine alongside an increase in pricing and standard equipment.
Priced from $97,500 before on-road costs, the refreshed Macan S commands a $2000 premium over its predecessor and is $16,100 dearer than the updated entry-level Macan that had its pricing announced in October.
The Macan S’ newly developed 3.0-litre petrol engine drops its forebear’s twin turbos in favour of a single twin-scroll unit located in the inner V of the cylinder bank.
According to the German brand, this layout creates shorter exhaust-gas paths between the upgraded combustion chambers and the turbocharger, which result in “outstanding and immediate responsiveness”.
As a result, the Macan S now develops 260kW of power from 5400 to 6400rpm and 480Nm of torque from 1360 to 4800rpm – an increase of 10kW and 20Nm.
Porsche claims the Macan S sprints from standstill to 100km/h in 5.3 seconds – or 5.1s with the Sport Package optioned – while on the way to its top speed of 254km/h. These figures represent improvements of 0.1s and 3km/h respectively.
Claimed fuel consumption on the combined cycle test has improved to 8.9 litres per 100 kilometres (-0.1L/100km), while carbon dioxide emissions have also been reduced to 204 grams per kilometre (-8g/km).
The Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel-drive system carries over alongside staggered tyres, although aluminium spring forks replace steel units on the front axle to increase rigidity and reduce unsprung mass, while the sway bars have been retuned for more neutral handling.
Porsche Active Stability Management (PASM) adaptive dampers remain standard, while the optional multi-chamber air suspension has tweaked rolling pistons and new shock-absorber hydraulics.
The Macan S’ redesigned brake pedal weighs about 300 grams less than the previous steel part and features a shortened lever arm to increase responsiveness. Furthermore, its front discs have increased in diameter by 10mm, to 360mm, and thickness by 2mm, to 36mm.
The rest of the Macan S’ upgrades follow that of the range-opening Macan, including its new-look bumpers, three-dimensional LED tail-light strip and LED headlights, the latter of which can be optioned with adaptive beams.
Inside, a 10.9-inch touchscreen Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system, satellite navigation with live traffic, voice control, Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay support, a Wi-Fi hotspot and 14-way power-adjustable front comfort seats with memory functionality feature.
Auto-dimming rearview and side mirrors, and surround-view cameras are also included, while options extend to a 911-sourced GT sports steering wheel with a driving-mode switch, a heated windshield and an air ioniser.
Sales of the Macan have taken a significant hit this year in the lead up to the new model’s release, with 1813 examples sold to the end of November – a 23.6 per cent decrease over the 2373 deliveries made during the same period in 2017.
Nonetheless, the Macan has remained the seventh best-selling mid-size SUV in the $60,000-plus segment, trailing the Mercedes-Benz GLC (5369 units), BMW X3 (4569), Audi Q5 (3659), Lexus NX (3475), Land Rover Discovery Sport (2751) and Volvo XC60 (2614).
