Spyshots: 2014 Porsche Macan Winter Testing
Following the trend for small crossovers, the maker of the 911 is finally launching a model that’s smaller and probably cheaper than the Cayenne. The idea is to create a car that’s to its big brother what the Cayman is to the 911.
Powering the Macan will be a new 4-cylinder 2-liter TSI producing 220 hp, just like a Golf GTI, as well as TDI and TSI V6 engines. The most powerful model will be the 380-or-so hp Macan Turbo, with a bi-turbo 3-liter under its bonnet.
The Macan will be unveiled later this year and should enter production soon after that, so this is Porsche’s last chance to see if it stands up to the toughest winter conditions Europe can offer, in Scandinavia.
