2018 Porsche Macan in Durham - Raleigh

The 2018 Porsche Macan is the Sportiest Utility Vehicle You'll Drive in Durham

Practicality is not Porsche. There are plenty of automotive brands in the Southpoint Auto Mall that can cater to affordable pricing, top-ranging fuel economy, and demure styling that blends in anywhere. Porsche is not practical--it's passion. And the new Macan lineup of luxury compact SUVs proves that passion can take all shapes and sizes. For 2018, trim levels include the Macan standard model, Macan S, and Macan Sport Edition, as well as the Macan GTS. You can also opt for a Macan Turbo or Macan Turbo w/ Performance Package.

Driver-Centric and Supported Interior

The 2018 Porsche Macan isn't the largest in the class of compact luxury crossovers, but its interior was designed to deliver a true sport experience to drivers behind the wheel--and its versatile folding rear seat does allow for 18 cubic feet of cargo space in the far back, and up to 53 cubic feet of storage area in total when the rear seat is folded. The design of the cabin is clean and crisp, delivering information and media easily right where you need it.

Classic Porsche, New Body

The only noticeable difference for the 2018 Porsche Macan is a selection of new exterior paint color options. But, with a recipe this perfect, Porsche really didn't need to change much at all. While this brand is mostly known for its iconic pint-sized sports cars, translating the design language to an SUV worked beautifully. The compact body of this premium sport crossover fits right in line with the general strategy that Porsche treasures: small, sleek, curvy, with a flat and wide hood.

The Only Compact That Drives Like a Porsche

While some competitors may boast one area or another superior to the Macan, there's no other compact crossover in the world that can touch this SUV in the arena of performance and handling. Standard power for the base Macan comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, good for 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Bump up to the Macan S for a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine making 340 horsepower and 339 pound-feet of torque, or the Macan GTS for the same engine, tuned to 360 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. At the peak of performance, the Macan Turbo line is equipped with a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6--good for 400 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque, or up to 440 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque with the Performance Package. Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel-drive system comes standard on all models.

Technology and Safety Features

This SUV can be equipped with a wide range of tech, convenience, comfort, and safety features to satisfy any sort of lifestyle--but the base-level models remain minimalistic for drivers who just want the sheer joy of sport handling. You can opt for Porsche Connect with Communication Management, multiple premium audio options, and advanced navigation. Standard front and rear parking sensors and a standard rearview camera can be found on all models, while Lane-Departure Warning, Lane-Keeping Assist, and a Blind-Spot Monitor are available.
