The sports car among compact SUVs

Launch of the new Porsche Macan in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka. Eurocars (Pvt) Ltd, the official Porsche importer in Sri Lanka, launched the new Porsche Macan on 22nd August 2014 at The Laksala Museum Gallery. The fifth model of Porsche product line, the all new Macan, is the sports car of the compact SUV segment. A Porsche through and through, the Macan is setting benchmarks in terms of driving dynamics and enjoyment – both on paved streets and off-road terrain.

The Macan brings together the most powerful engine range in its class with the sporty seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and one of the finest drive systems in the world – Porsche Traction Management (PTM) in conjunction with a sporty mix of tyres, fitted as standard. In launching the Macan, Porsche now offers sporty all-wheel-drive vehicles across an unprecedented range.

Chairman of Eurocars (Pvt) Ltd, Arthur Senanayake states “With the arrival of the all new Porsche Macan, we are excited to offer the sports car of the compact SUV to the Sri Lankan market, which opens up another entry into the exclusive world of Porsche. We are confident that the Macan will contribute further to the success of the Porsche brand.”

The Macan is claiming the top spot in its segment from the very outset. As the top model in the Macan model line, the Macan Turbo equipped with a 3.6-litre V6 biturbo engine, which is being used in a Porsche model for the very first time, achieves an unrivalled 400 hp and catapults the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. The Macan S equipped with a 3-litre V6 biturbo engine and delivering an output of 340 hp, defines a new performance class that competitor vehicles are yet to reach. Equipped with a powerful and extremely efficient in-line four cylinder petrol engine with turbocharging, the Macan features a 2.0-litre displacement which delivers an output of 237 hp. The Macan is not just setting the benchmark for driving dynamics – the vehicle also delivers the combination of efficiency, comfort and everyday suitability that has become a defining feature of the Porsche brand.

The sporty DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is immediately recognisable in the design. Many details are reminiscent of the iconic 911 sports car and the technological benchmark 918 model, and the Sports Utility Vehicle is unrivalled in its flat and broad profile on the road. The wraparound bonnet and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporty elegance and powerful dynamics. Many of the design elements have been taken from Porsche sports cars and enhanced for the Macan, making it clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan heralds the first sports car in the compact SUV segment.

Extensive features, unique options

The range of equipment fitted on the Macan as standard is extensive, and includes the all-wheel drive, PDK, multi-function sport steering wheel with shift paddles, large wheels, high performance audio system and an electrically operated tailgate. The list of optional special equipment offers further exclusive highlights, such as the air suspension system: The Macan is the only vehicle in its segment to feature such a system. There is also the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) system, which has been specially tailored to the Macan. This system distributes varying levels of drive torque to the rear wheels and works in conjunction with an electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock. The list of Porsche options includes the much sought-after dynamic high beam forming part of the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus), which continuously adjusts the headlight level in keeping with the traffic ahead and any oncoming traffic. A choice of premium-quality audio equipment is available in the form of the optional sound systems from Burmester® and Bose.
