German automaker Porsche is all geared up to launch Macan R4 in India on November 15, 2016. The highly anticipated Macan R4 model will take on the newly launched Jaguar F-Pace in the Indian market.
The new model will be powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine capable of producing 249bhp of peak power and 370Nm of peak torque. The Macan R4 can do a sprint of 0-100 km/h in 6.7 seconds and a top whack of 229 km/h.
In October, the bookings for this model has commenced. We can expect Porsche to price it around Rs. 75 lakh ex-showroom.
Currently, Porsche India offers three variants of Macan: a 242bhp 3.0-litre Macan S Diesel, a 396bhp 3.6-litre Macan Turbo Petrol and a 434bhp 3.6-litre Macan Turbo Petrol with Performance Package.
When it is launched, the Macan R4 will be the company's entry-level product which will compete with other luxury SUVs in the country.
Right now, the best contender for Porsche Macan R4 is the recently unveiled Jaguar F-Pace. The entry level variant of the F-Pace comes with a price tag of Rs. 68.40 lakh ex-showroom.
