Buyers at dealerships like the Caliente Porsche dealer looking for a compact luxury crossover that provides an incredible ride, exceptional handling, a comfortable cabin, and potent engine choices will want to place the 2022 Porsche Macan at the top of their shopping lists. The Macan offers drivers an incredible combination of performance and comfort, making it ideal for driving on the track or taking on errands. The Macan's suspension is adept at carving curves, yet it still delivers a comfortable ride driving around town. On the outside, the Macan has lots of curb appeal.
The 2022 Macan comes in base, S and GTS models. This article will focus on the mid level S. According to the Caliente Porsche dealership, the 2022 Porsche Macan S is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine that puts out 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard.
In the outgoing Macan, this engine came standard in the GTS trim. In last year’s Car and Driver testing, this unit propelled the Macan to 60 mph from off the line in just 3.9 seconds. With the Chrono Sport package, which includes Launch Control, drivers should get the same zero-to-60-mph figures. The 2022 Macan S gets EPA-estimated fuel economy rated at 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway.*
Car and Driver gives the 2022 Macan S high marks, writing:
"There's virtually nothing dull about how the Macan S drives. The steering enjoys an intuitive connection between the driver's palms and the road surface below. Acceleration from the twin-turbo V-6 is brisk, turbo lag is minimal, and it snarls pleasingly."
Outfitted with sporty styling the Macan S is sure to get plenty of attention, whether driving on the highway or parked on the street. On the inside, the S comes with all the base trim's features, plus upgraded brakes, full leather upholstery, and the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system. Other standard features include LED headlights, a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay, and an audio system with ten speakers. The available Premium package adds adaptive headlights, heated front and rear seats, and an upgraded stereo setup with 14 speakers. Buyers who opt for the Sport Chrono package get adjustable drive modes, launch control and more.
Macan S drivers will love riding in the luxurious cabin. The comfortable seats will keep everyone relaxed, even on long drives. Standard tri-zone automatic climate control ensures that passengers will stay as warm or cool as they like. There's lots of cargo space, which should assuage the fears of anyone who has doubts about buying an SUV over a sports sedan.
Standard features for the base Cayenne include 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, power-adjustable front seats, partial leather seats, paddle shifters, rain-sensing wipers, front and rear parking sensors, a power liftgate, a universal garage door opener, an audio system with 10 speakers, and four USB ports. The standard infotainment system comes with a 12.3-inch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto and navigation.
