Most automakers manufacture SUVs that are long on utility and short on sport. The 2021 Porsche Macan breaks out of that mold. While the Macan provides all the utility you’d expect from a vehicle in its class, Porsche built the Macan with performance in mind. Buyers at dealerships like the Glennville Porsche dealer love this model’s fast acceleration and exceptional handling. The interior provides all the comfort Porsche aficionados demand. This SUV is an excellent daily driver that is also adept at tearing up the road.
Porsche Macan Models
The 2021 Porsche Macan seats five and is offered in four models: Macan, S, Turbo, and GTS. According to the Glennville Porsche dealership, all models feature standard all-wheel drive, and the engines on offer are mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
No matter which model you choose, you’ll get an incredible luxury SUV. Edmunds writes:
“The entry-level model is a good place to start, but we think you should jump straight to the Macan S since its turbocharged V6 delivers the performance you’d expect of a Porsche.”
