I've only had the Macan S for 2 weeks and have only driven it twice. Both drives were highway commutes so I had time to get a feel for it. Seat...not so comfortable. Buttons and knobs...not easy to find and access. I'm used to the scrolling knob being located on the center console where I could rest my arm and control the media screen. With the Macan, the knob is located just below the media screen so you have to reach and find it. There is the option button directly above the knob which is somewhat difficult to press because of the knob. The electronics is a little too complicated. Hopefully I will learn how to operate everything better with time. Engine performance? Couldn't ask for much more. It definitely responds well.

Sport Utility, Drives like a car

This compact SUV feels more like a sports car. The ride is very refined and relaxing but when pushed into sport mode it has all the performance you'll want in an SUV. I have the GTS model with the 3.0 liter Twin Turbocharged V-6. This puts out360 hp of fun for an everyday driver as well as out of town trips. I'm loving it so far.

So far, still in love

I have had the Macan only for a few weeks but I do love it. Coming from my 2nd straight Cadillac Escalade EXT, which I loved, I wanted something completely different and that is what I have. I did have to get use to sitting a little lower but after that adjustment, it was heaven. Not use to punching down on the gas and it taking off like a rocket but so far, no speeding tickets.

2017 Porsche Macan Overview

Porsche has a new turbocharged four-cylinder version of the 2017 Macan SUV. The new Macan is a base model, slotting below S, Turbo and GTS trims.

Outwardly, the new base Macan isn't all that different from the rest of the lineup. Its window surrounds are in matte black instead of chrome or body color, and it has stainless-steel dual exhaust ports. The rest of the look matches the Macan S, including the front bumper shape and the black side blades.

It's not all that different inside either, with a piano black interior trim package and standard eight-way power seats finished with faux suede inserts. Porsche's latest multimedia system, the Porsche Communication Management system, as well as a lane departure warning system are standard.

Under the Hood
The biggest changes between the Macan and Macan S come under the hood. The new base model features the same turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that's been slipped into the 718 Boxster, making 252 horsepower and propelling the Macan from zero to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds, according to Porsche (when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package with Launch Control). The only transmission is a standard seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic, mated to a standard all-wheel-drive system. Stop-start technology improves fuel economy. According to Porsche, the base Macan is expected to be rated at 20/25/22 mpg city/highway/combined, up 18 percent from the Macan S's mileage.

The new Macan is available for order now at Porsche dealers nationwide, with deliveries expected to start in July.
