Reviews of the 2019 Porsche Macan have been overwhelmingly positive, with the automotive experts at Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com writing: “If you’ve always craved the style and performance of a small Porsche sports car, but the realities of your family’s needs or everyday practicality negated that fantasy, the 2019 Porsche Macan has your name written all over it. A stunning interior provides all the luxury you’ll ever need, and its performance does justice to its Porsche emblem.
The 2019 Porsche Macan seats five passengers in comfort and is offered in two trim levels: base and S. All-wheel drive is standard across the board. The base Macan is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The S is equipped with a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that blasts out 348 hp and 354 lb-ft of twist. Both engines are mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This gearbox provides smooth and fast shifting, as well as a manual mode.
Standard features on the base Macan include 18-inch wheels, three-zone automatic climate control, front seats that are power-adjustable, a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat, rear privacy glass, partial leather and simulated-suede upholstery, automatic wipers, LED headlights, a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, a cargo cover and a power liftgate.
Tech features that come standard include an upgraded infotainment system with a 10.9-inch touchscreen that serves as the hub for the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system. The sharp graphics are quick to load and the display can be configured according to the driver’s preferences. PCM gets improved voice recognition to make controlling the system even easier. Other standard tech bits include web-based navigation, a 10-speaker audio system, internet radio, satellite radio, HD radio, four USB ports and Bluetooth.
Step up to the S trim and you’ll get 19-inch wheels, exclusive exterior trim, advanced brakes and dual twin-pipe exhaust ports.
The Macan gets a new optional GT Sport steering wheel that was previously found in the Porsche 911. This Alcantara leather-wrapped steering wheel features a three-spoke design that’s smaller than the standard steering wheel. In the optional Sport Chrono Package, this steering wheel comes with a mode selector dial.
